Picture Book Report 11x17 VersionPicture Book Report 11x17 Version

The Picture Book displays the items you are selling to the client in picture format. The photos of your items are listed by location and are displayed in two columns. You can have up to 5 items showing per location. The quantity of items on the proposal dictates how many item images are printed. For example, if a location has five dimmer switches, the Picture Book will display five dimmer switch images.

The description displayed below each image uses the line item description settings chosen when printing a proposal.

  • If you chose to hide the manufacturer but include the model number on the line item in the proposal, the picture book images will show the model number without the manufacturer’s name.
  • Likewise, if you chose to show the item description inline with the model number on the proposal, then the caption below the picture book image will include the item’s description, as well.
