MILK Photo Albums and Books are digitally printed using the latest printing technology and top quality inks. Your photos are recreated in vivid color using liquid ink on archival quality paper. The ink binds itself to the paper, rather than sitting on top, as is the case with less sophisticated printers. Handcrafted by expert bookmakers using traditional binding techniques, we combine the best of old and new world craft when creating your mementos.

While we don't have small photo albums or an extra large photo album, we do offer alternatives. The small landscape Classic Photo Book (7x5.2" or 17.8x13.2cm) is a compact, everyday size and great for phone or Instagram photos. Our large landscape Classic Photo Album (13x11" or 33x27.9cm) is a commanding size and would look great on any coffee table.
Our Premium Photo Books are our most popular photo books and the Large Landscape is our bestselling format. This is closely followed by our Classic Medium Landscape Photo Book.
