Photobook 101: Choosing the right photobook cover



With the right cover, you can set the tone and mood for any given collection of memorable photos, and this serves to enhance the overall experience of preserving, sharing and interacting with them.

For first-time “photobookers”, selecting an ideal cover that does justice to the emotional value you attach to special moments can seem a little overwhelming. This is especially true when you are faced with a buffet of wonderful choices and an extensive range of personalisable options.   

Firstly, stay calm, because the truth is there are no hard and fast rules to abide by when it comes to choosing a cover for your photobook. Ultimately, the best choice is the one that suits your personality and most appropriately reflects the way you feel about your collection of special photos.

However, if you feel you need a little guidance to aid your thought process, you’ve come to the right place. Here is a handy guide on some favourite cover options that could be the ‘picture-perfect’ choice for your personality and unique preferences.
