Photo Books

"We do not remember days, we remember moments"

open book

Wider choice with more included as standard

Our books contain just that bit extra.

All Classic Photo Books contain 40 pages as standard (not just 20), with 150gsm quality Silk paper (some go down as low as 100gsm) and the books are bound beautifully and contain fly leaves (which many have done away with). It all adds up to more book for your dollar. Which is important, because your memories deserve it.

Easy to use, free software

Our Editor allows you to design your Photo Book exactly how you want it. Just choose a theme, apply layouts, backgrounds and embellishments, then drag and drop your photos wherever you want them. It's that easy.

Note: We recommend that you have your photos organised first to make the drag and drop bit just a little easier!

We don't cut corners.

All books are beautifully case bound and are complete with end papers, something that many others cut out. We think they are important because they protect the front and last papers (and to be honest, it's how a real book has been made for centuries).

Quality you can count on.

It doesn't happen often, but we can make mistakes. When it does, we stand behind everything we make for you. Every page, every cover and every delivery - if there is a reason you're not 100% happy with your product, just get in touch with our friendly customer service team. We promise to do everything we can to help.

Choose beautiful Standard Colour or stunning Hi Colour printing

Standard Colour: raised to a higher standard

Beautiful 4 colour digital printing comes as standard. We print all our Standard Colour Photo Books on the latest generation Digital Printing Presses and carefully colour manage all printing. This process results in your photos looking just as good as the day you took them.

4 colour 150gsm premium silk

Hi Colour: producing the colour that your camera saw

If you want to take your Photo Book to the next level, print it on the world’s newest, very latest generation Hi Colour press. Your colours will be even more vibrant with smoother gradients and finer resolution than in Standard Colour. We achieve this with 7 colour specialty inks instead of 4 colour, use a finer screen mode for superior dot placement and achieve stronger colour control by using premium papers. The end result is more even colour, punch and vibrancy to your precious photos.

A wider choice of high quality papers

There's a paper type for every occasion. Sometimes it's softly textured luster, other times its earthy traditional paper. With a choice of 150gsm Silk or gorgeous 190gsm Photo Pearl paper in Standard Colour, or our brand new upgraded 260gsm Photo Luster in Hi Colour, we've got the paper choices to match your desire.

Silk - setting the standard

150gsm in weight with a slightly off-white colour tone and very smooth feel, Silk is an all-rounder that produces great colour balance with good tones. If nice all round colour reproduction in Standard Colour is your goal, then Silk is the right paper for you.

Standard Colour Paper Upgrade Options

Upgrade your Hardcover Photo Book from 150gsm Premium Silk to 190gsm Photo Pearl. With a heavier weight, Photo Pearl is thick and luxurious with a brilliant depth of colour. It has a stunning pearlescent finish, hence its name.

Hi Colour Photo Luster

A simply stunning Photo Paper and our latest sheet - now upgraded from 240gsm up to 260gsm with the release of Hi Colour printing. Luster has a very gentle eggshell finish, has exceptional vibrancy and at 260gsm has plenty of heft in the hand. This specialty photo paper provides remarkable dot placement stability to work in harmony with the Hi Colour Press. It reflects light evenly for beautiful visual clarity.

We've got covers covered

With so many covers to choose from, you'll be sure to find the cover that's right for your photo keepsake. Our Photocovers are vibrant and sleek and our Premium Material covers offer a stylish, sophisticated touch.

Hard Photocover

A hardcover book that allows you to design anything at all on the cover. We print the cover on a high quality printing press, laminate it, then bind your cover onto a high quality case.

As standard, all Photocover Photo Books are made with a beautiful Matte laminate finish. Or you can choose a Luster finish to give your Photo Book a gentle sheen - the choice is yours!

Soft Photocover

You can choose a Softcover Photo Book for a magazine-like finish. Printed on 300gsm card and laminated with a micron film - this means the cover stays nice and flexible. Design whatever your like on the cover - it’s your canvas to paint.

Bound your way

We employ classic bookmaking techniques to ensure our Photo Books are of the same high quality as our digital printing. We use state-of-the-art PUR glue for strong perfect binding to ensure your albums will run the distance. Our covers are carefully trimmed and the corners tucked for an elegant finish. Choose from traditional Classic binding or Layflat binding for seamless page spreads.

Classic Photo Books

Classic books have the valley in the middle of the book with that beautiful wave and fall in the sheet that defines a traditional book. You can have up to 200 pages, more pages than with Layflat binding, which means with the maximum pages your book will be a hefty 25mm thick. Pages are bound into the book using a really clever, special glue called PUR. It's clever because when we apply the glue, it cures but stays flexible for life and it's super strong. We've tested it on books up to 5cm thick and then hung the book for hours off a single page - the result? Nothing budges!

Layflat Photo Books

Layflat books do exactly that... lay flat. It's the polar opposite of the Classic Photo Book - the book is completely flat from left page all the way to right with no join - it's one big continuous sheet. This sheet is then glued to the one following it, and so on. The result is a super thick bonded page, making the binding unbelievably strong. Printed on either 400gsm E-Photo Lustre or Matte paper which is water resistant and dirt-repellent, Choose from Standard Colour or Hi Colour printing. Layflat Photo Books can hold up to 140 pages.
