Frequently Asked Questions for Diary Covers

What kind of files can I send?

For photos, high resolution (300dpi +) .jpgs are easiest. For text documents (school prayers etc.) word or plain text documents. For School Crests/Logos please send us a high resolution scan (or a vector graphic) of your school crest. Fax scans are not suitable. If you do not have a high resolution scan or vector graphic, our designers can redraw your crest or logo for a charge of $35. When finished, we will provide you with the files so that you can use the artwork on other resources.

What kind of Photos works well?
All photos should be scanned at high resolution (minimum of 300dpi). If you do not have a scanner, we can scan originals ($5 each), but cannot guarantee their return. Please ensure that all original photographs and artwork are clearly labelled on the reverse side with your school name, address and phone number.

If you’d like to include photographs in your design, but do not wish use pictures of children from your school, consider images of statues, artwork or significant school buildings. Alternatively, we have a range of stock photos available including religious imagery (candles, stained glass, bibles etc) and nature scenes.

What about Student Artwork?
If you plan to use student artwork for your cover, choose a design that has good colour saturation. Before making your final selection, try scanning the artwork to check for its suitability.

Can I have a cover that is different to the templates?
Definitely. If you have an idea for a cover please describe it in the details section on the order form and we will do our very best to make it a reality.

Can you decide the best design for me?
Yes - if you attach the text and image files you would like to include on your diary covers to the order form, and select “Surprise Me” from the template menu, we will create a design for you.
Can I use my own design?
Yes you can. Your design needs to be prepared in professional design software such as Adobe Indesign and exported to PDF at high quality print settings. Page size is 162 x 227 mm with 3mm bleeds. Photos should be CMYK at 300dpi.  All colours should be CMYK. Export with bleeds but no printer marks.  There will be a $35 admin fee to insert your artwork into our file format and prepare it for print. No responsibility will be taken by LivingWell Media for colour distortions on self-design covers. Please note: PDF's generated from MS Powerpoint or Publisher are not suitable.

If I only customise the front cover, what will the other covers look like?
If you choose not to customise all four covers, the generic cover design will be used for the other pages. Alternatively, a blank page in one of your school colours can be used.

Can I have the ruler or Timetable on a different background?
Absolutely! Just send us a note in the message box. We can cut and paste the rule or Time Table onto any background.

Will I see a proof before the diaries go to print?
Once your custom cover is designed, you will be sent a PDF proof to approve. The design will not be sent to print until you have had the chance to check it and make any changes. Only two rounds of changes can be offered. The first round can include any changes; the second round will only allow edits to the changes made on the first round.

Can I reuse my custom covers from last year?
Yes, custom covers from previous years can be reused with no design fee. You can even make small text changes (e.g. 2011 to 2012) for no fee. More substantial modifications such as changing photographs, rearranging the design etc will incur the usual $35 per page fee.

What if I want to add new photos or change the information in my previous custom covers?
Changes to the images or layout in existing custom covers will incur the $35 + GST design fee for each page that is changed.

If I use the Makeover Service and don't like it, will I be charged?
We want all our customers to be delighted with their covers and will do what we can to get a design that you love. If however we can't capture what you're looking for, we can go back to your original design. There will be no charge if there has been only one round of changes. If there has been several rounds of feedback and edits, we will charge you our usual rates ($40 for the cover only, $80 for 2 to 4 pages). Please note: most of our competitors charge up to $120 per page for design fees. At $40 per page, our design service is already heavily subsidized.

How will I know that you received my order?
Once you submit your order, an email confirmation will be sent to the email address you submitted. If you do not receive this email within 24 hours, please call our office on 02 9319 1111. Once your order is received our designers will begin work on your custom covers and email you when a proof is ready for checking.
