You’ve been sitting on those photos for a while now, haven’t you? I’m guessing you didn’t realize how time-consuming making your own album really is, right? There’s so much to do when it comes to making your own album.
Find the photo
Get them all in one place
Research album companies
Figure out the weird built-in software
Fiddle with layouts that waste so much space
We can help you with that
We can do all the work for you from choosing the best photos for storytelling to creating an amazing and efficient layout and save you up to 12+ hours in design time. We design wedding albums, newborn albums, family albums, or “omg I just need to print these photos before I lose them when my phone inevitably dies” albums
We design it.
We hand over the files.
You print it.
Our album design service is for people who want a professional looking album with a killer unique layout but who would rather print it at their preferred company.
The “design software” that all these DIY album companies include is basic and uninspiring. We’ll create you a professional layout with all your favourite images and then hand over the design file to you. You can wait for the company to have a sale, you can print as many copies as you want – its your design file to do with what you please!
SELECT YOUR ALBUM SIZE
We work with the 3 best publicly accessible album companies: Artifact Uprising, Blurb, and Zno. Choose your album maker and the size you want us to design for. Leave us some special notes and answer a few quick questions to help us understand your vision.
SEND IN YOUR PHOTOS
We’ll give you a link where you can upload your photos; you can include all the photos you want us to use or you can just send everything and let us make the choice for you!
RECEIVE YOUR LAYOUT
Once your layout is complete we’ll send you your files. They’ll be ready to go to print without any fuss. You can choose to make a few revisions if you want or set up a consult with us to do them live
PRINT YOUR ALBUM
AT YOUR LEISURE
Whether you print it right away or hang onto it for a few weeks in case you find a sale, your files are yours to print forever! No time to do the actual uploading? No problem – we can do that too.
Why you’ll love it
MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
When you use an album companies built in software, you can often end up with 50% blank white space on a page – and that’s just not an efficient way to spend your money. Custom designed album layouts get you more bang for your buck because we can get more photos per page than those built-in-softwares can.
SAVE YOU TIME
Those pesky built-in-software programs are inefficient and slow. You can save up to 12 hours of design-time per album by letting us do the work for you. Spend time with your family, go on a date night or take a weekend trip – we’ll work on your album for you.
HIGH QUALITY ALBUMS
Not every public album company makes nice albums; as professional photographers we’ve done the work for you and have narrowed down dozens of album companies to 3 awesome ones: they’re budget friendly, they have many sizes, they offer lay-flat options. What’s better than that?

GETTING YOUR ALBUM EXACTLY HOW YOU ENVISIONED IS OUR GOAL!
Which album companies do you work with?
For quality and design reasons, we work with Blurb, Zno and Artifact Uprising. From our experience, they offer the best quality and consistency in product that publicly accessible labs offer. They also are easier to work with when uploading a custom designed layout and don’t force to use their software.
Do you have to have taken the photos?
No – I will happily provide design service for any person inquiring. We do ask that you check your contract and make sure that you have the authorization to use a third-party design service prior to hiring us. (Most photographers allow this)
We in doubt inquire with you photographer!
How long will design service take?
Depending on how many images you send us to work with, design can take up to 1 week for standard orders. Turn around times may be longer if you opt for revisions or doing a virtual consult to build the album.
How many photos should I choose and how many pages should the album be?
We will provide you guidance based on which company you want to work with and which size of album you’re intending on making, For a large (10×10 or 12×12 album) we recommending a max of 4-5 images per page for lay-flat binding and 2-3 images per page for standard binding
What is the payment structure?
Once we determine how many pages you will be sending and if there will be any customization, an invoice will be sent to you that is due prior to design work commences. Payments are required in full prior to the design being created and all sales are final.
What is the actual cost of printing albums?
You’ll need to reference the album sites directly for that and make sure that you’re aware of what currency they’re displaying their prices in.
Our services and prices strictly design, we cannot guarantee prices of any third party album providers
