One of the things you may be concerned about is making sure all your questions get answered before you decide on a final photo book printing project. What binding is appropriate? What size paper should you use? Should you print in color or black and white? These are just some of the questions that you may have. Our service representatives will help you navigate all of these questions and any others that arise as you learn about the process of photo album printing.
With the technology we have today, it’s never been easier to self-publish your photo book. At Publishing Xpress, the process begins online.

Decide how you will bind your book. We offer four binding options — perfect bound, plastic coil, saddle stitch, and wire-o. While we have printed these types of projects using all four binding options, the most common option is perfect bound. Using this binding option makes your family history book look like a professional novel. We can perfect bind books from just a few pages to over 500 pages. We can also bind books from 5.5 x 8.5 inches to 9 x 12 inches.
Take some time to decide what paper stocks you want on your cover and inside pages. We offer a wide range of paper weights, so it can get a little confusing. You might want to order our free sample packet. The packet contains examples of all four of our binding options. The plastic coil book has samples of all of our paper stocks, so you ca see and feel them before ordering.
Still a little concerned how you final book will look? If you have the time, consider getting a hard copy press proof. We will print and bind your book using the specifications in your order, so you can see exactly how your finished book will look. A hard copy press proof costs $60 if it is sent via UPS ground service and $100 if sent via UPS overnight service. Be aware that this will add about a week or so to the delivery time of your books.
