Linen Photo Book & USB Box - The Perfect Combination
Choosing the right products for your photography business can often be overwhelming. It’s tough to get a real feel for products by looking online and to know which packages will be popular with your customers. A trade show is a great opportunity to take a look at new products in person and feel the quality for yourself plus there is always one of our helpful customer support staff there to talk you through all the features. In the absence of shows, we’re highlighting our favourite products and telling you everything you need to know before adding these to your packages and ordering a sample.
Why are combination products so popular?
Over the past 20 years photography has evolved, from a majority exclusively in print, to the introduction of digital only packages and now many modern photographers are looking for the ideal combination.
To be able to offer your clients the best of both worlds, our Linen Photo Book & USB Box has been designed to be a perfect balance between modern and traditional photography packages.
What is a Linen Photo Book & USB Box?
Exactly what it says on the tin! We offer a bespoke linen box created to house an A5 hardback book in matching linen, side by side with a personalised crystal USB key. Personalisation is printed directly onto the box and book cover to match, so you can choose from one of our fantastic templates or create a completely bespoke design instead. We offer free personalisation on the book, box and USB all printed onto your choice of 30 colours of linen, perfect for creating a one of a kind bespoke package. With our standard Lustre paper and a personalised 8GB USB, this fantastic package comes in at only £110 plus delivery, perfect for working into your packages with no variables or add ons to worry about when ordering.
Each box is handmade to order in your choice of 30 colours of linen. This includes a popular clam shell style lid that is hinged on the top long edge, opening the box in a reveal style with a satisfying magnetic seal on the lower lip. The inside structure is black, with a matching linen internal base below both the book and USB compartments, finished with a black grosgrain ribbon to lift the book with ease.
Your bespoke design is printed directly onto the linen on the lid, and the colour of your print is dependent on the colour of the linen you select at the checkout. Lighter linens are printed with black UV for a solid contrast and darker linens are laser etched for light-coloured detailing.
The A5 book is a mini album that is created with our popular photographic Lustre paper as standard offering fantastic quality on every page. You also have the option to upgrade to Fine Art Paper at the checkout for an ultra matt finish instead.
The hardback book is created completely by hand, and you can design up to 20 thick, luxury pages that lay completely flat allowing you to incorporate full panoramic images. End papers are in black to match the inside of the box and the black ribbon which helps easily lift the book from its snug housing.
As well as the stunning photo book this package also includes a modern crystal glass USB key available to order in 3 metallic lid colours and 4 different memory sizes. This USB key can be personalised with UV print on the crystal section to match the cover of the book and box or created to subtly include your own branding instead.
The USB key is USB3.0 for speed and reliability, offered in sizes of 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB, making them ideal for not only smaller shoots and portrait sessions, but great for video hand over packages as well.
Why are product samples important for photography businesses?
Rebranding your business or tidying up your package options for clients is a great opportunity for a fresh take on your service and to offer clients a product you are truly in love with. Having a sample product with all your favourite imagery is the best way to showcase your work and your packages in one. Even in the age of digital consultations, you cannot show your clients what they can buy without showing a sample, be it in person, via zoom or facetime or even your own product shots taken at home. Don’t hold back on offering products you really like, this passion shines through in your sales pitch and clients can easily pick up on this. We offer 40% off sample albums and books all year round meaning you can have a fully personalised linen book and USB box sample for only £66. Remember to share your own personalised product photography with us online via social as well & we’ll repost to our community of photographers for inspiration and ideas!

What do clients think of the Linen Photo Book & USB Box?
“We got an album and USB after our wedding and it was the perfect way to display the beautiful photos Joss captured. In fact we loved it so much that we bought another for my parents as a gift! The only downside is choosing your favourite photos to go in there - we wanted them all!!” - Very happy couple from Joss Guest Photography.
