If you’re looking for a premium quality photobook, this is the product for you.
Before You Start
If you’ve had the idea of getting a photobook made the first thing you will need to do is organise your photos, messages and anything else you would like to include. This process often takes the most time and we recommend booking a consultation with us after you have already completed this process. To plan your project we suggest using a minimum of 20 and a maximum of 300 photos per book. We understand that you may want to order a photobook for a special occasion. As a general rule creating, designing and producing a book from start to finish once we receive your photos can take roughly 4-6weeks. Allow extra time if you wish to get images scanned, restored or edited for your book.
The Design Process
Your album will be designed by one of our qualified in-house graphic designers. Our photobooks are designed in a timeless minimal style to showcase your photos as the focal point. The process of getting a photobook designed by us would start after you have selected your images and have an idea of what order you would like them to appear in the book. This would be followed by a consultation where you supply us with a digital copy of your photos, talk design requirements, pay a deposit and decide on your book size and customisation. Once we start designing the book, we will liaise with you via email to send you a digital copy to review and alter up to two times at no additional cost. Once the final design and price is confirmed we then start production! If you want to design a book yourself, please note that- we only offer the sizes and cover options listed below and would need to provide you with our specific print requirements.
Choose Your Look and Feel
At this stage you would need to choose the specifics of your album and confirm fabric choices, embossing details etc. This is the stage where you can start to visualise your book coming together. It’s also important to confirm your embossing information, being careful to verify the use of capitals, special characters, spelling as well as font and colour choice.

Paper, Printing and Binding
Our photobooks are either printed on quality Splendorgel matte smooth paper, or our slightly textured Neenah art stock. Both our available paper options are a matte finish, which when compared with glossy thin paper, shows less fingerprints and marks. Our Fitzgerald photobooks are press-printed in-house by our qualified technicians, with the finest level of care put into colour management and quality. The binding is outsourced to a locally based book binder, so from start to finish your book is lovingly made right here in WA.
You can customise your photobook by adding some bespoke embossing. The process used for this is a traditional method using a tried and tested hot foil emboss technique. Metal letter blocks are laid out, heated up and foil stamped into your book, and as such there is a limit on characters, glyphs and fonts. We will always do out best to recommend a well matched font and colour to suit your book and advise what will fit. Our hot foiling comes in two styles of font: serif and san-serif with a range of foil colours: Rose Gold (copper), Gold, Silver, Black, White, Clear, and Blind.
Your photos. We design it. We make it. It's yours.
