We use industry experts who have been preparing images for print for many years, seasoned experts who have worked with some of the greatest Photographers in the world.

Paper Consultancy

Paper selection is crucial to producing a quality Photobook.

There are many different types of Paper and a variety of different weights for each type of Paper, it can be a real minefield as certain weights are not suited to certain Binding techniques.

We can advise on specific Papers for specific Photobooks, certain projects will naturally be more suited to a Coated Paper and others would be more suited to a beautifully tactile Uncoated Paper. We can help you select the the best paper for your images and to suit your budget.

We can arrange for Paper samples and Plain Dummy books for you, these will help you select your Paper and finish.
