A photo book is a powerful way to tell a story through pictures. It’s a unique format for a collection of photos, whether you’re capturing your travels, showcasing your business, or immortalizing some precious memories. With Mixbook, creating a custom photo book has never been easier. There’s enough customization offered for all types of photo books. In this quick guide, we’re going to walk through the art of making the best photo book ever.
Start with a gorgeous cover
Have you ever judged a book by its cover? You might not have, but others have! Mixbook offers a unique selection of options for your cover. So even if your photo book is judged by its cover, you’re well covered. You’ve got four options for the material: softcover, glossy, matte, or leather. If you’re crafting a professional portfolio for your business, you may want to go for a hardcover choice. The premium black leather option is a great choice for gifts.
Choose your paper
While semi-gloss paper offers shimmer and luster to your photos, matte finish gives a low-glare appearance that can be viewed from any angle. Mixbook’s premium matte lay flat paper is ultra-thick and works great for professional-grade use, whereas their semi-gloss is great for something on the coffee table.
Pick the perfect theme
Mixbook offers hundreds of customizable themes, for every occasion and use that you could possibly think of. If you’re looking to showcase your travels, they have 59 travel photo book themes for you to choose from. If you want to get really creative you can even start a blank book on their website with unlimited possibilities!
Shape and size matter
Think about how you’d like your photobook to look and feel in your hands. Is it a large square-shaped book or a smaller portrait-oriented book? Remember, with Mixbook, you can select any shape and size for any of their hundreds of themes.
