I’m a photo book newbie. How do I print a Hardcover Photobook?

For a simple tutorial on how to print your first Hardcover Photobook, check out our how-to guide here. Our tutorial will guide you through possible layouts, photo counts, re-arranging, and captions so when you are ready to place your order you will already be a pro!

Ordering Tips

Please only use English characters for your titles and captions on your Hardcover Photobook. Emojis or non-English characters will not print. 

We cannot save photobook projects as you go, and we recommend uploading, arranging, and checking out with your book right away. Browsers left open over multiple hours can refresh, and this may cause you to lose your work. We hope to have a save option in the future...

If you do not have a ton of time to place your order (we all have things to do, we understand), we recommend creating a folder on your desktop for your project. When you have a few minutes, you can drag your photos for your book there. Once you have time, you can then upload all of your photos and rearrange them to your liking, as well as checkout.

A Note on Cropping

Our Hardcover Photobooks feature pages and cover options can also be chosen to print full bleed. Due to the nature of full bleed printing and trimming, we recommend keeping all important subjects at least 0.25” from the edge shown on the cropping menu and print preview. Full bleed prints can be cropped up to an additional 0.25” from this preview so we recommend keeping all vital limbs, heads, and text away from these crop lines.

Can Instagram Photos be used for these books?

We don't recommend using older Instagram photos in our Hardcover Photobooks. They will be printed with a large amount of white space around them because the image size is too small to be printed full bleed.

If you would like to print your older Instagram photos, there are some grid page options that have small enough grids to facilitate the smaller Instagram file size. We recommend these grid options for smaller social media photos as printing them full bleed can result in pixelated pages.

What happened to your old uploader?

This tech company got new tech! The new photo book maker is user friendly, allows you to print multiple photos per page, and avoids issues with larger Instagram photos. After many years of leaving the older photobook maker up and running, we no longer support it. The old uploader had old tech and we saw issues arising that led to orders failing. Give the new maker a whirl and if you have any suggestions on how to make it better, email us at hello@sps.io.
