How-To:

Build an Album

step by step guide to building and ordering

We make ordering an album as simple as possible.  All that you have to do is pick your favorite photos and we’ll do the rest!  We’ll create a digital proof for you to approve prior to completing your order.

First Steps

Learn a little about what you will be building.

Album

Our albums feature a high quality watercolor paper that gives your photos a soft, matte look. The paper is mounted to a substantial card-stock that allows for your photo arrangements to spread across the margin for a stunning presentation. Albums start with 5 spreads and max out at 30 spreads.

How many photos should I choose?

Figuring out how many photos you’d like to order can be the difficult part.  You may find it easiest to first pick what photos you’d like to use and let us get you a quote with sizing options.  However, if you’d rather pick the dimensions and length,  we recommend 6-12 images per album spread.  (6 per spread for a 6″x6″ or 5″x7″, 8 per spread for 8″x8″, 10 per spread for 10″x10″, or 12 per spread for 12″x12″)   Click here to download a pricing guide.

Pick out Favorites

The fun part

There are a number of ways to pick favorites, but we have found the easiest is to use the hearts in the corner of your photo thumbnails. NOTE: Please don't pick photos with our logo in the bottom corner.
