Don't just take our word for it

Anyone else create photobooks from their trips? I love having these to look back on. One is locked away for Archie to have when he is grown up!

@nevergrowingupnat

Creating a photo book was a breeze with lots of customisation options available. The high-quality finish of the book exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend it!

@Sarah

Often, we take lots of pics and at the end, we put them in a laptop or a hard disk and we never look at them again! So we decided to make photo books of all our travels.

@leschouchousairlines

I made a 40-page photo book for my grandma. Printerpix made the creation process extra meaningful, easy and fun. Now she has a lifetime of memories to cherish.

FAQ About Photo Books

How can I create a custom photo album online?

Whether you're looking to capture family memories in a premium hardcover photo book, commemorate a special occasion in a luxury layflat photo book, or curate your travel adventures in a vibrant softcover photo book, Printerpix has designs to suit all tastes and occasions.


Once you've chosen a design, it's time to personalize your photo book. With our user-friendly design tool, you can effortlessly upload your favorite photos from your computer or directly from your social media accounts. Arrange the photos in your preferred order and add your own creative touch by experimenting with different layouts and backgrounds.


But the personalisation doesn't stop there. Add text to your photo book to provide context, share anecdotes, or simply express your feelings. You can even include other elements such as clipart or borders to enhance the visual appeal of your photo book.


Once you're satisfied with your design, simply place your order, and we’ll take care of the rest. We’ll print your custom photo book using high-quality materials and ship it directly to your doorstep.


Let your creativity shine and start creating the best photo book in the world (yours).


Can I make a personalized photo book for special occasions?

Absolutely! Personalized photo books are perfect for any special occasion. From personalized wedding photo albums and celebration photo albums to baby photo albums and family photo albums, custom photo books are a great way to preserve memories of special moments.


What is the difference between a hardcover and a softcover personalized photo book?

The primary difference is in the cover material. A hardcover photo book is usually bound with a rigid, durable cover that can protect the pages inside for many years. A softcover photo book, on the other hand, has a flexible cover. Both can be customized to create a unique picture album.


What types of photos can I include in my custom photo album?

The possibilities are endless when it comes to the types of photos you can include in your personalized photo book. You can include family photos, vacation photos, pet photos, baby photos, wedding photos, graduation photos, nature photos, and much more. The choice is yours! Whether you're designing an elegant coffee table photo book that serves as a conversation starter or a cute mini photo book that's perfect for quick reminiscing, your selected photos will shine in their full glory.


Can I gift a personalized photo book?

Yes! How about a year in review photo book for a close friend? Document your shared adventures over the past year – concerts attended, road trips taken, or just your regular coffee catchups.


For anniversaries, a custom photo book capturing the first date to the latest adventure is a unique gift that they’ll cherish forever. Personalize your photo book with captions that’ll make you and your partner smile, laugh and reminisce.


A birthday photo book, filled with pictures from every milestone year, makes a heartfelt present that's packed with one-of-a-kind memories. A personalized picture book is a timeless gift that tells a story that’s uniquely theirs.


For a newly wedded couple, why not gather pictures from their big day into a wedding photo book? Include candid shots of the bride getting ready, the groom's first look and the couple's first dance. There’s a photo book for everyone and every occasion.


Can I create a personalized photo book with text?

Yes. Creating a personalized photo book with text is an excellent way to elevate your storytelling. Not only can you add captions and dates, but you can also infuse your photo book with personal anecdotes, favorite quotes, and meaningful details that enrich the visual narrative.


If you’re creating a travel photo album, try complementing each stunning shot of your adventures with a brief description of the place, the date of your visit, or even an amusing anecdote from your journey. For a baby's first year photo book, you could annotate each adorable photo with significant milestones – the first word, the first step, even the first adorable mess during mealtime.


Adding text to your photo books, be it hardcover photo books or softcover photo books, or even layflat photo books for panoramic shots, elevates them from simple picture collections to rich, engaging narratives. It's a way to capture the emotions, thoughts, and memories that are attached to each photo, preserving them for years to come.


So go ahead, get inspired, and add a dash of storytelling magic to your custom photo books!


I have a lot of photos, which photo book should I make?

The type of photo book you should make depends on the nature of your photos. If you have a lot of family photos, a family photo book would be great. Holiday photos can be compiled into a travel photo book. Photos from a recent event like a wedding or birthday could make for a wonderful custom photo book. You could also categorise by year or theme. The choice is yours, and you can always make more than one type!


What type of paper do you use in photo books?

Your photo book contains premium 200gsm paper that is thick and sturdy, ensuring your photo book pages have a substantial, high-quality feel while being durable enough to withstand handling. It has a stunning semi-gloss finish, providing a beautiful sheen that enhances the colours and details of your photos, without causing too much glare. This finish is a popular choice for photo books as it helps make images pop while reducing fingerprints and smudges.


How should I organise my photos in my personalized photo book?

Choosing a theme can really make your photo book pop, especially for collections like family picture albums. Group your snaps by event - maybe it's Christmas dinner shenanigans, fun beach getaways, or snapshots of your pet's silly antics. This way, each section tells its own little story, giving your photo book a fun, personal twist.


Creating a travel scrapbook? Arranging your photos by location lets you take a geographical journey every time you open the photo book. Each location can showcase the amazing sights, people, food, and the unique experiences you had there.


For a wedding memory book, think about beginning with the early morning preparation – shots of the venue, the bride's dress, the groom tying his tie. Then, transition into the guests arriving and the bride’s arrival right before capturing the 'I do's', the huge applause, the first dance as a married couple.


Can I use black and white photos in my custom photo book?

Absolutely! Black and white photos can add a classic or vintage feel to your personalized photo book. They can stand alone in a themed book or be mixed with colour photos for contrast. In a photo book designed around a specific theme, black and white photos can help to evoke a certain mood or atmosphere. Think of a wedding photo book filled with nostalgic black and white images, or a family photo book that captures beautiful moments in monochrome.


But the beauty of personalized photo books is that there are no hard and fast rules. Feel free to combine black and white images with colour photos. The contrast between the two can be visually striking, adding an extra layer of interest to your photo book design.


Can I create a professional portfolio with a personalized photo book?

Yes, personalized photo books can serve as an excellent medium for professional portfolios. They can showcase your work in a high-quality, tangible format. Whether you're a photographer, artist, designer, or in any other creative field, a custom photo book can help you make a lasting impression.
