Why create photo books?

Capture your favourite memories in a CEWE PHOTOBOOK

With the advancements made in mobile phone technology we’re now fortunate enough to be able to capture quality photos wherever we are. However, most of these memories stay locked away on a phone or computer, never to be seen or shared again. Now imagine taking these memories and preserving them in a personalised photo book that can be shared and treasured amongst friends, family and loved ones. The CEWE PHOTOBOOK offers first class quality and the highest colour brilliance to ensure your photo memories come to life on each and every page.

Choosing the best paper type

When it comes to displaying photographs, everyone has their own preference on what the best paper type is, facing you with the question: matte or glossy? Both have advantages and disadvantages. Many professional photographers swear by the high-gloss surface due to the level of colour shine brilliance. Also, there’s no fear of the dreaded fingerprints as these can easily be removed from the photos. Matte surface on the other hand, provide a more intimate and quieter appearance, to many photos viewed on this paper type have a more delicate and familiar feel. If it’s high contrast and sharp images you’re after then high gloss paper can give you this. It all really depends on your own personal taste and the type of impact you’re seeking from your photo album. But no matter whether you choose matt or glossy photo paper, you will be impressed with the level of quality we can provide. If you’re having trouble deciding on a paper type, why not request your free swatch kit so you can compare the look and feel of each option.

Creator Software

If you’ve never created a photo book before, don’t worry! Our free, award winning Creator Software let’s you turn your favourite memories and best moments into a beautiful high quality photo books you’ll always treasure. We have nine different book sizes to choose from which range from pocket size to XXL portrait / landscape with hardback and softcover options, and with up to six different paper types, there really is a photobook for every occasion. The Creator Software also lets you customise each page with backgrounds, text and clipart to make sure you can make a truly unique masterpiece. But if you’re in a hurry our software assistant tool can auto-fill the pages for you, giving you a professional result in no time at all.

A photo book for every occasion

A CEWE PHOTOBOOK can be used to capture photos from any occasion. They are a great idea for Birthdays, Christmas, holidays, a baby’s first year, or even a wedding album. Maybe you want to create your own recipe book full of all your favourite dishes – the possibilities are endless. But, if you’re struggling to come up with ideas, why not visit our blog where you’ll find plenty of inspiration and ideas. Our personalised photo albums also make a great gift idea. There is something very special about creating a book of memories for a family member or a loved one and seeing their reaction when they receive it. Family photo books are becoming popular presents to give to loved ones. Sometimes it’s the time and effort someone has put into making something so unique that can stir such powerful emotions. We even offer presentation boxes on our larger format books, so the gift experience will be an unforgettable one.

Delivery times

Once you have finished creating a photo book we will try to make sure you will have the finished product in your hands as soon as possible.

We generally assume a delivery period of 5-7 working days but for larger photobooks please allow 9-11, but we always aim to get the book to you sooner.

Photo albums vs. Photo Books

Photo albums are bulky and hard to store, not to mention the time it takes to stick all your photos into an album. So why not design your photobook either online, via our free downloadable software or our mobile App, this way you can also choose a book size that suits your requirements. Depending on your style of book, you may prefer a small or pocket photo book that can been easily stored or carried around with you, or maybe a large coffee table style book like our XXL Landscape Photo Book which makes a great talking point when friends or family come over to visit. Creating a photo book lets you relive the excitement of looking over photos rather than keeping them stored away on a computer hard drive. It’s the modern way to enjoy photo memories with friends, family and loved ones.
