Seldex™ Storybooks are different to matted albums as each album page has a photograph fully mounted, edge to edge, on the page so it resembles a magazine. Storybooks are one of our most in demand albums and are popular as it allows photographers to design digital layouts without restrictions, and although coffee table offset printed books have also become popular over the years, we have found nothing beats a wedding album with genuine photographic prints and heavy duty pages. All our Storybook albums are available with cut photos only - meaning you must supply individual photos for the each album page and there will be a small 3-4mm gap in the gutter between the prints. If you would like an album with creased prints you will need to order our Boutique album.
We offer a huge range of standard sizes listed below, however if you would like a size not listed please contact us as I'm sure we will be able to accomodate you!

Seldex offer 2 colour options for the base leaves of your Storybooks - black or white. If a colour is not selected on your order form then black will be used as the default colour. You will see the colour of the base leaf when looking at the side of your album and in the spine area, between your prints, when your album is open.
The maximum number of leaves in a Storybook is 30 leaves or 60 pages.
We offer a couple of different page options for our Storybooks as listed below. This is a great way to use your imagination and create unique album designs to suit your studio. For full information on these designs please click on the Page Options link to the right.
There are many options available to photographers for designing magazine style albums and it really depends on how much time, and or money you have. Some photographers prefer to use Photoshop for all their layouts although most prefer album designing programs with preset templates that they can change to suit their own style. Other studios prefer to outsource the design side of album planning. If you go to the "our friends" page here on our website you will find some of our recommendations.
Yes! Seldex™ assembles all Storybooks inhouse and ships you a complete album ready for delivery. You have the choice of sending us your prints for binding, or sending us your image files and we will both print and bind your Storybook.
