Handmade Photo Albums
Crafted to endure.
There are no short-cuts on the road to excellence; no false economies to be found when only the best will do. Rather, MILK Photo Albums are made the same way beautiful books have always been made – painstakingly, using the best materials and methods at hand.
We use traditional hand-binding methods, meaning our albums are constructed to last longer than a lifetime. True quality needs a well-trained eye and a careful touch. We pride ourselves on these aspects of production as they help define and distinguish us as designers, curators and hand-makers of what we believe are the best photo books and albums in the world.
The MILK handmade album range
Our Premium Albums are for those who truly value the finest quality. Using exclusively archival quality materials these are bound to last generations. Three formats, 6-color print, two flush-mounted board options, a range of luxurious cover materials.
Premium Leather Albums
Like our Premium Albums our Premium Leather range features the same binding techniques and archival properties. The only difference they are bound in the highest quality Italian leather. This is the ultimate keepsake for the most treasured events.
Handmade production techniques
Lay-flat binding is a modern technique which allows the spine and pages to open and lie completely flat. This allows viewing the book and printing across two pages and is particularly spectacular. Compared to other binding techniques, none of your imagery will be lost in the gutter or confined to a single page. This allows the depth and meaning of the image to be in full effect.
All images are printed on high quality paper stocks are flush-mounted on to 2mm board – this means the print will lay across a full page spread and are able to be appreciated in a way that it couldn’t be on a single page. It is this detailed approach that creates true quality.
What our customers are saying
We were just blown away by our wonderful book. It has turned out better than we could ever have expected.
Erina King - Oamaru, New Zealand
We love our lay-flat wedding album, it surpassed all expectations. An amazing experience and an even better outcome - Thank you MILK!
MILK Books quality is clearly superior to any photo books we had done before; not just in terms of how the photos came up, but also their overall feel and presentation.
