Lite Books

Lite Books are the ideal, inexpensive companion album for any wedding or portrait package.  Lite Books are printed and bound by Seldex™  using our matte or lustre paper. 

Lite Books feature an personalised image cover printed on our Satin paper and laminated for protection. Lite Books are available in a limited number of sizes and page numbers to keep the cost low. Lite Books are creased down the centre of the page ensuring a layflat design that provides an uninterupted view of each album spread. Our complete print and bind service saves you considerable time and money - simply upload your order and wait for the finished album to arrive, ready for your customer to pick up!

Lite Books have been designed to fit inside our USB Print Box or our Portfolios.  When added to a USB Print Box you can include your digital files on a USB drive in the package and together with the album, it makes a gorgeous presentation.  You can also add it to our Portfolios or Image Portfolios and your package can then include loose mounted prints as well as an album.  Lite Books can also be packaged in our stardard black boxes or our Lite Book bags.

Lite book bags available in Black or Natural at an additional cost. 

Please make sure to print our Print Specifications information booklet to help with your print settings.

How do I design a Lite Book?

There are many options available to photographers for designing Lite Books and it really depends on how much time, and or, money you have.  The most popular and time saving solution is to use an album design programme such as Fundy or Smart Albums.  We do supply Photoshop templates if you prefer to design in Photoshop.  If you go to the Software page here on our website you will find some of our recommendations for computer design programmes.

When designing your Lite Book please remember to set your pages up as double page spreads.  We trim off approx 2-3mm all the way around when we do a final trim.  Please make sure you do not place any important content in this area that you do not want trimmed off.
