The pages: A flawless look.

The vibrancy of your images will last for generations as they are flush-mounted on 1mm core board leaving you with a luxurious seamless look and feel. Our lay-flat binding allows the spine and pages of your album to open and lie flawlessly flat—perfect for displaying those moments that take your breath away.

Albums with over 46 pages use a thinner, more flexible board (0.85mm compared to 1mm) to accommodate the higher page count.

That extra touch: Add a MILK Presentation Box.

With memories that last a lifetime, you'll want an album that does too. Each MILK Classic Photo Album has the option of a presentation box to further preserve those moments and ensure they’re in perfect condition every time you take them off the shelf and into your life.

Frequently asked questions

Our Classic Photo Album range is our most affordable, high quality album offering. Simple and elegant, there are two sizes available in landscape orientation and 24-64 thick board pages to house your favorite memories. The range features 4-color printing onto semi-gloss paper, and flush-mounted lay-flat binding so the albums' pages will lay perfectly flat. Personalize your album's look with the choice of seven different Classic Linen cover options.

There are two sizes available:

  • Medium Landscape 9.25 x 7.4" (23.5 x 18.8cm)
  • Large Landscape 13 x 11" (33.0 x 27.9cm)

Lay-flat binding is a traditional album making technique. We chose this method because it results in the best experience, providing the ability to lay the album completely open and flat across the center fold. Unlike other binding techniques, your images won't get lost in the album's gutter, so your beautiful panoramic photos and favorite memories can spread beautifully across two pages.

At MILK, our Photo Albums are carefully crafted with 1mm thick board pages. They are stiff, inflexible and heavy, creating a high-end, luxurious feel and the ultimate keepsake for your coffee table.

Please note: For albums over 46 pages we will use a marginally thinner board with 0.85mm thickness to accommodate the higher page count.

Our Classic Photo Album range features 260gsm semi-gloss paper mounted on thick board. A classic white color, this paper type mimics the look and feel of traditional photo paper for a vibrant print result and lustrous finish. Our semi-gloss paper is acid-free, archival quality and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), meaning that not only will it not discolor or decompose with age, but it has been sourced in an environmentally-friendly manner.

Classic Photo Albums can have from 24 to 64 board pages. Please note: Albums with more than 46 pages use a thinner, more flexible board (0.85mm) to accommodate the higher page count.

4-color printing is the industry standard when it comes to digital photo printing. The CMYK process reproduces photos beautifully and results in a crisp, clean finish. Your memories come to life in 4-color print using cyan, magenta, yellow and black inks that are applied as tiny dots on the paper, successively layered to reproduce thousands of colors. We use the best digital printing technology available, including industry leading printing presses and inks, to ensure high quality, long-lasting results.

We showcase our customer projects (with their permission) via The MILK Gallery. Here you can browse books and albums by theme, product type, range, format and country. Our Classic Photo Albums are popular for those creating wedding, travel or family albums. We love this 26-page wedding album by Caitlin of New Zealand, which gives us a glimpse into her and her husband's picturesque South Island nuptials.
