Photo books – Q&A

How many pages can I have?

That depends on which photo album book you go for. Most of our photo books come with a standard 24 pages, but you can choose to edit the book size and add extra pages for a small fee. Our best-selling A3 and A4 Personalised Photo Books can hold up to 160 pages at standard paper thickness, or 128 pages at upgraded paper thickness. Our other photo books range between 90 and 120 pages (with a few exceptions).

How thick are the pages in the photo books?

Our photo books cover a range of paper thicknesses, making sure you find right paper for bringing your snaps to life. Our standard paper quality is 170 gsm, and is glossy, flexible and durable. The paper can be upgraded in most of our photo albums. Our lay flat books come with 380 gsm as standard, which is thick like card and means that pages stay flat even when you're turning them.

Can I gift wrap my personalised photo album?

Absolutely. Some of our photo books, such as the A4 Lay Flat Photo Book, actually come carefully wrapped in their own photo album gift box. You also have the option of adding a gift box to all hardcover A4, A3, Square and Large Square photo books. For a small fee, we also offer a gift wrapping service for our A4 photo albums.

What is a lay flat photo book?

Lay flat' is the name of a type of book binding. It means that, because of how the pages are bound together, the photo book opens completely flat at the spine. Our lay flat photo book pages are extra-thick too, which also helps them open flat. This type of binding means that none of your photo gets lost in the spine – perfect for an impactful panoramic two-page spread.

Can I add messages to my personalised photo book?

Our photo book maker tool will help you add text captions inside all our photo albums in a variety of different fonts and layout options. You can also include text on your cover and the spine of some of our books, e.g. A4 and A3 personalised Photo Books, A4 and A3 Lay Flat Photo Books, Square Hardcover Photo Book, A4 Portrait Photo Book, Square Photo Book, Square Softcover Photo Book, A5 Small Softcover Photo Book.

How long does it take to make a photo book?

That's entirely up to you. Some of our personalised photo albums, such as our Little Moments Photo Book, can be made on your phone in minutes. Others can take a bit longer depending on how many photos you're using, and how creative you want to get with customisation. We can also help you by autofilling future photo books with your uploads, giving you a head start on your next masterpiece. How long you spend adding captions, backgrounds, experimenting with layouts and designs is up to you – spend as much or as little time as you like.

We know it can take a while to scour your photo albums for the best photo for your first page or select the perfect photo size for each image, that's why with our Buy Now, Create Later purchase option you can now enjoy up to 3 months to create your personalised photo books online.

What can I use a custom photo book for?

Photo books are brilliant for creating mementos for all sorts of occasions. Many of our customers use them to remember special memories from weddings, holidays, baby's 'firsts' or a whole year in family life. We've also seen them used for scrapbooking, recipe books and for professional portfolios.

Photo album books also make great gifts. Why not curate a collection of photos from a person's life to create a very personal book for a big birthday, make a travel journal for your backpacking buddies or pop your photos of a great day out with the grandparents into a Little Moments photo book to keep forever?

What colour is the cover on the inside?

We recently updated our photo album design and the inside of the cover is now a warm grey.
