  9. Now this is a really important part... it is vital you do this for your code to apply at the checkout… Select the correct size and cover option for your voucher.
    When selecting the size...

    • Small ‘Classic’ Printed Hardcover Photo Book voucher is valid for:
      • Landscape 9×7”

    • ‘Classic’Printed Hardcover Photo Book voucher is valid for:
      • Landscape 11×8.5”
      • Square 8.5×8.5”
      • or Portrait 8.5×11”

    • ‘Large’ Printed Hardcover Photo Book voucher is valid for:
      • Landscape 12.5×10”
      • or Square 12×12”

  10. One more really important step... Under “Bindings” select the correct cover option:
    The cover option automatically defaults to a “Black linen Hard cover w/photo jacket”. Unless this is what your voucher is valid for, you will need to change it. For example, if your voucher says “Printed hard cover” it is only valid for a “Printed hard cover”, not any of the “Linen Hard Cover w/ photo jacket” options.
  11. Once you have selected the correct Size and Cover option to match your voucher, select the quantity you would like to order and click “Add to Cart”.

  12. After clicking “Add to Cart”, you will be taken to a screen showing you what items are in your cart.

Now is the time to check…If you are happy to carry on, click on the red warning and select Approve.
