Photobook America requires nothing from its clients but their photos and a bit of creativity. The company is the facilitator?it has the software, designs, and professional-grade covers, printers, and binding to turn clients' photos into personalized albums that are carefully constructed and tastefully designed.
The first step is settling on a theme: photo books can document a wedding or family vacation or serve as a portfolio for a business or artist. If customers wish, they can design their book from scratch; otherwise, they can select a template from Photobook America's Readybooks library. The company enables clients to upload their photos, edit them to their liking, and select the type of cover they'd like, with image-wrapped, softcover, or debossed options for the exterior. Their photos and design choices then materialize in the form of a professionally bound, vibrantly colored photo book that preserves their memories in a tasteful and durable volume that would fit right in on the coffee table or beside Uncle Larry's taxidermied Shakespeare busts.
