Five things to look for in a photo book
01 Variety of paper types
A good publisher will give you a number of different options on paper stock, quality, and price.
02 Delivery options
If you need a book quickly, say for a birthday gift, look for companies which offer express production and delivery. You may need to pay extra for a speedier service, though.
03 Quick design
Ready-made templates make it easy if you want to put something together quickly. The best publishers will allow you to make tweaks to the template as necessary.
Can you add your own text boxes, picture layouts and quickly duplicate page layouts? Making a photobook should be a pleasure, not a hassle.
Think about the best size to display your images – generally speaking, A4 should be the minimum size you choose if you’re displaying photography work.
