You can create MILK Photo Books & Albums via our website on both desktop and mobile device. Simply upload your photos into the MILK Design Studio to start creating online. Our Design Studio is purpose-built for easy photo book creation. With 1000s of designer templates, a smart Autofill function and an intuitive interface, creating a custom photo book or album has never been easier.

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. For more details on our printing process, visit this page.
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. All of our Photo Books are printed on sustainable, archival quality paper. They are also traditionally made and handcrafted. Visit the Compare our Range page to discover which is best for you.

MILK Photo Albums and Books are designed to last for generations. To ensure your keepsake remains in top condition, we recommend adhering to the following instructions outlined in our Care Guide.
For Photo Books & Albums
- Prevent the fading of images and cover materials by storing your book or album in a dark place away from direct sunlight.
- Never store your book or album where it may be exposed to extreme heat, humidity or moisture.
- Ensure your book or album is stored in a place where there is plenty of ventilation.
For Photo Albums Only
- Photo Albums should be stored flat, not vertically.
- Always support the binding of the album by resting the back cover on a clean surface when viewing.
- Never hold or suspend your album by its cover as the weight may damage the binding.
The key differences between our Photo Books and Photo Albums are:
- Page type: Photo books use flexible paper; photo albums use 1mm thick, inflexible board
- Page count: Photo books can have 24-200 pages; photo albums can have 24-64 pages
- Binding: Softcover Photo Books and Classic Photo Books are PUR bound. Pages bow from the center. Premium Photo Books are stitch bound. Pages lie near flat. Photo Albums are flush mounted. Pages open to lie perfectly flat.
- Paper options: Photo Books have five to choose from; Photo Albums have three to choose from
- Cover fabric: Our Hardcover Photo Books have linen or coated cloth cover options. Softcover Photo Books are created with flexible, water-varnished card. Photo Albums have linen, coated cloth or leather cover options.
