Photo Proof Books Overview
Our photo proof books are perfect for photographers to showcase up to 1200 images from a photoshoot, wedding or portfolio in a physically printed format.
This book is a popular alternative to online galleries and can be created quickly and easily via the “Autofill” function in our SimWare software. With 6 images to a page simply ensure your files are named with a four digit number (e.g. 0001.jpg) and the book will be created for you with your images in numerical order. Choose a selection of your best images to create sporadic feature pages throughout your photo proof book to highlight your favourite shots.
Let clients browse the images to select their final choices for their album or for additional re-touching if you do not wish to provide an online gallery.
Product Options for Photo Proof Books
Photo proof books hold up to 1200 images and you can choose from 3 different styles of binding. The product can be easily branded on the cover and internal pages and has the option to include a USB drive in the presentation box.
Our hardback photo proof books are available in your choice of linen or full image cover in keeping with your brand or style of shoot. Click the swatches below to find out more. If you select a softback photo proof book, you can design a full image cover and choose between a matt or gloss lamination to complete your final look.
For spiral bound books, a black ring binding is used on the left hand side, and you can choose between a matt or gloss lamination for your front and back cover panel.

Image Finish Options
Our photo proof books will arrive packaged in a grey presentation box as standard, but you can choose to add a USB to the base at the checkout if required. If you would like to add a UV design to the box to match your personalisation on the linen then you can choose to upgrade the box at the checkout.
Please note that this upgrade option is only available if purchasing a photo proof book with a Linen cover and the box will be printed using a black UV printing technique even if a Laser Etched design has been applied on the Linen cover.
Paper & Binding
We offer photographers 3 different photo proof book formats to suit your style, either a fully bound hardback with an image or linen cover, a softback image printed cover, or a spiral bound copy with an image front.
Image Cover - Create an image cover to wrap round the whole of the front, back and spine of your proof book, available in a matt or gloss finish for the final laminate. Use images and text to create a fully customised design, including the names and date on the spine if you choose.
Linen Cover - Choose from our 30 stunning colours of linen for your cover and design a line art graphic or logo for the front and back cover. Your design will be printed or laser etched onto the linen depending on the colour you have selected, and you will also have the option to add the front cover graphic to the box at the checkout.
Our softback option gives you the flexibility to create a full printed image cover on the front, back and spine. Add your company details and client names to your design before choosing between a matt or gloss laminated finish in the checkout.
Spiral bound books are printed on heavy weight paper to give a premium feel and lay completely flat when opened.
Choose between a gloss or a matt finish on the front and back cover.
