The VAULTS

The VAULTS is a comprehensive library of worldwide luxury travel features and product showcases in a range of  Collections. View our handy booklets and then build your publications by simply clicking Add to Publication on each module you want to feature. If prompted, choose the hotels you prefer to support a particular feature. When you have enough material proceed to Cover Manager.

Cover Manager

Your front cover is the doorway into your publication so it is important that it inspires the reader to enter. Like the VAULTS, Cover Manager is sectioned into themed 'Collections', from which it is easy to make your choice by simply clicking Add to Publication. If required we will also assist you in designing a masthead style...

Discover your look - corporate, style-driven? ...Happy browsing!

Whatever type of publication you want to create you will want to add some key components like introduction pages, where you can include your editor's column, news and contents. Perhaps you want to add a page or more of your own material or allocate pages for advertisers. Select the templates that work best for your purposes for each area of your publication by clicking Add to Publication

NEWS

Use the Breaking News stories we feature in our weekly News from the VAULTS email bulletins as short stories in your own publications. Some page templates in Layout Planner include space for a number of these spotlight pieces. Refer to the NEWS Archive for stories that will appeal to your readers. You can also submit your own material using the 'Your' News and other special templates.

Cover Design

We have lots of examples of Masthead (title) designs both for magazine- and corporate-style covers if you are looking for inspiration, and we will be delighted to assist in designing an appropriate style to suit your publication(s). Whilst reviewing cover images have a look at our cover examples and if you see one that ticks the boxes just make a note of its location and we will work around that look.

Select your modules from The VAULTS

There are TWO ways to locate your modules from the Collections:

EITHER

Select 'Modules' from The VAULTS Collections

OR

Use Search to locate a destination or even a specific product or property. 

(Button disabled)

Each time you 'Add to Publication' that module is placed in the 'Publication Cart' ready for use in your pagination. Once you have enough modules proceed to 'Cover Manager' to select your cover.

Cover Manager is found next to The VAULTS on the header column and consists once again of a menu of Collections covering a wide range of themes and destinations. In our example publication we feature a Bucket List article on The Galapagos so we have selected an appropriate image from 'Wild' Collection that fits the story.

Layout Planner

By this point you will have selected your VAULTS modules and Cover. To create your finished publication you will need to add some personalised pages like introduction, contents, news stories and perhaps additional pages for your own articles or space for advertisers. We have created various layout pages in Layout Planner to complete the run of pages in your publication. Select as required by clicking 'Add to Publication'.

Review your selections

Once you have selected all your sections you can review it all in the Publication Cart, where you can add or remove as required. Once you are happy click 'Send to Travelspeak' and fill in your details.

Complete your order

Once you have completed all the necessary contact details you will receive confirmation that your selections have been received and we will prepare a proof (digital flipping book format) that also includes personalised entries, covers, contents and any additional space required for your own material or advertisers. This part of the process is not automated, as each publication is a bespoke production, at which point we will be able to finalise Pricing for your printed and/or digital order.
