General Information

How much do they cost?

For exact pricing on each trim size please see our product catalog.

How big are they?

We offer several trim sizes. Check out our Book Binding Specifications page.

What do the pages look like?

The interior paper has a satin feel (you can select photo silk if you prefer a more glossy look). Print quality is outstanding! Colors in your printed book will look different than images on your screen because there is a difference between ink colors and screen colors.

What do the covers look like?

The covers are beautiful. They are full color, laminated on heavy coverstock paper, and the binding is "perfect bound". Our photo books look just like a soft-bound coffee table book you would find at your local book store.

What size should I make my photos?

The minimum recommended size for Photo Books is 2 megapixels (1600x1200). However, the larger the image, the more crisp the photo book pages will appear. A 4 or 5 megapixel image will create a beautiful, full page print for all photo book sizes. Going to even higher resolutions has a small noticeable increase in quality.
