Read All About It: Self-Publish Your Own Photo Books
It’s always a good time for a photo book sale–create your own memory books. Gather your digital photo files, decide on a theme and login to Winkflash.com. Make a custom, professionally printed and bound (or spiral bound) photo book in no time. We offer six personalized photo book styles:

Depending upon the book style you pick, start with a one-photo or two-photo cover*. Add a book title if you wish, then flip to the inside to build your book by adding author, date, overview—whatever you like. The book designer walks you through the process page by page.
*Photo book cover options vary by product. Winkflash design templates show you which products can support one or more cover photos.
Book designing moms–you can keep a clean and spare look to your limited edition photo book, or choose from among various design templates such as seasonal, travel and vacation, color themes, holiday, baby and more. It’s a snap to take your uploaded photos and place them into position. For fun, we created a few custom photo books to share:
Secret Life of a Bride and Her Bridesmaids
We selected the Lay Flat Photo Book style to make a bridal party personalized photo book. From the moment she selected her maid of honor to the instant she drives off with her bridegroom, we asked the bride to share her best photos and quotes and silly stories while en route to the altar. What resulted is a wonderful memory book assembled as a gift for a group of very special ladies.
We chose the Lay Flat Photo Book for its hardcover binding and pages that are side sewn and case bound. We opted to show one photo on the glossy cover and one photo on the back. Our title, “Secret Life of a Bride and Her Bridesmaids” along with the event date, personalizes things. The default 20 pages was more than enough to meet her needs, and the 8.5×11 edge-to-edge printed pages look spectacular. Regarding what we placed inside, well that’s secret!
Cheering Squad Mini Books
This year marked a big accomplishment for the local cheering squad—they went all the way to state finals! So to commemorate, we let each member make a personal 5 x 7 Spiral Bound Mini Photo Book. Everyone on the squad was snapping selfies, taking photos at the competition and creating fun photos with besties. Why not let the cheer squad create their own custom mini photo books? What resulted was a fury of book exchanges. With these little spiral bound books being such cheap photo books to make, each member ordered three copies—one to keep and two to swap with friends. The spiral bound pages make it easy to flip through the photos, and there was ample space to write personal comments on the backsides of the images.
Why wait? You should be thinking about your next bestseller. Whether you decide to make mini photo books, a 12 x 12 photo book or something else, start recording your memories and gathering your photos now.
