What gift should I choose?

While there are a variety of photo gift options at your fingertips, we’ve mapped out some of our most-loved below.

  • • For your parents: A Layflat Album that they can display on their coffee table, bookshelf, etc.
    (Have you seen our new foil and fabric colors for the season?)

  • • For your siblings: A Color Series Photo Book filled with their favorite photos from a recent trip
    or your favorite photos together

  • • For your significant other: A Wood Calendar for their desk or working space that reminds them each
    month of your time together

  • • For yourself: A Gallery Frame with your favorite photo (because filling your space with the images you love will be the best gift you give yourself!)


Where do I begin?

No matter what project you’re creating, we always recommend starting with your photos. Here's a peek into our own personal process:

  • Curate all of your photos into one album on your desktop so that you can upload them from a single place

  • If your photos are on your mobile phone, head to our website on your device. Once there, you'll have the option to upload your phone photos into a new gallery or into a pre-existing one. When you're on our website on your desktop, all of your uploaded mobile photos will be there waiting for you!

  • Each time you enter the editor to create a project, your gallery will be shown — play around with different photos in different gifts to figure out which one you like best


How do I build a book?

You’ve decided on what book you're going to gift — now for fun part: creating it. We’ve mapped out our best advice for creating a book in this guide.


Can my gift come gift wrapped?

If you want your gift wrapped and ready to place under the tree, you’re in luck! We offer gift wrap and gift note options — which can be found in checkout by clicking the "Is this a gift?" button. Make sure you click the "Add Gift Options" to lock in your selection once you're done. Gift wrap costs $10 and gift notes are free — they come printed on a 5x7" note. More info on the two can be found here.
Opting out of gift wrap? Not to worry: our package all come invoice free!


What are the new gifts?

Our product and design teams have been hard at work making sure that you have a variety of new gifting options this holiday. Take a peek below for an outline of a few of our favorites!

  • Color Series Photo Book: These vibrant, modern books showcase the first image through a circular die-cut. Choose from four seasonal title themes, or choose your own titles for a unique way to tell a story!

  • Framed Canvas Print: A modern take on the classic print display, this cotton-blended canvas comes with a sleek metal frame (in brass, black, or german silver!)

  • Wedding Layflat Album: Our signature album upgraded with new cover designs, foil stamping, and fabric colors.

  • Walnut Desktop Calendar: A new take on our classic calendar, this new Walnut Calendar is perfect for any desktop because it comes with a brass stand.


When will my gift arrive?

Because our products are custom made, keep in mind that all products need time in production before being shipped to your door. We’ve done the math for you, so you know exactly when to order to receive your gift by Christmas Eve - you can find a helpful graph that outlines the deadlines based on shipping method here. (Note: if you need your gift before Christmas Eve, you’ll count production days a bit differently — follow our normal production guidelines here).


What can I gift last-minute?

Need a last-minute, easy gift? (We get asked this question a lot — you’re in good company!). Below, find a few of our favorites:

  • Calendar Refill Packs are great for those who already own a calendar but need a new insert for a new year

  • Square Prints can be made in minutes (trust us, we’ve timed it!) and come in a variety of print sizes:
    from 10 to 50

  • Gift Cards are never a bad idea, especially ones that feel as personalized and meaningful as these!


Can I gift phone photos?

This is one of our favorite questions. Those photos living on the phone will surprise you at how well they print, especially if they’re the original source image. We asked our community to put their phone photos to print, and here’s what happened. Keep in mind: our editor is designed to give a low resolution warning if the uploaded image isn’t quite big enough to print at the size chosen. No worries — there are several size/layout options available for almost all of our products, to make sure you can find one that works for your image (sometimes downsizing isn’t a bad idea!).
