If you are like us – taking loads of photos during your travels to memorize all these beautiful moments, you might know that uploading them to social media is a great way to expose them to the world and share them with your fans, friends, and family. But wouldn’t it be fabulous to gather all those memories into something a little bit more lasting than just a couple of pixels on the internet?
A real, printed version – a collection of some of the most incredible experiences, the breathtaking landscapes, and little moments in between that bring a smile on your face?
Custom photo books are the absolutely perfect idea if you are looking for a beautiful, elegant and artistic, long-lasting reminder of your adventures! It is a great way to get those photos off your phone or computer and get them on display.
How we did our first photo book?
For this project, we have partnered up with Mixbook and on their platform, they offer more than 400 templates divided into 13 categories. You can choose the kind of paper you like, your favorite format from landscape, portrait, or square which comes in various sizes.
The first thing we did was selecting our favorite travel memories, the destinations that make a special place in our hearts – our moments of yugen. From fifteen countries that we’ve visited together, we picked up six: Thailand, The Maldives, Indonesia, France, Portugal, and Greece.
The second step was to choose four to five of our best shots from each country to place them into our book, and tree extra photos for the cover, back, and the second page.
When the most important steps were done, we were ready to choose our template and theme of the book. Our personal winner was a template called ‘Modern Travels’ because it is simple, minimalistic and clean. We customized it to a square photo book with a size of 12×12 inches and we picked up the matte hardcover. After that, we were ready to design our book which was the funniest part!
We uploaded all the previously chosen photographs to the easy-to-use editor and after deciding our desired backgrounds and layouts, we started to drag images and placing them on the white pages of our choice. We also decided to add some quotes in between in our preferred font, size, and color. In case, you want to get your personal book more decorated there’s a wide selection of cool theme stickers available.
Once all the photos were placed, we were ready to order our book.
We honestly couldn’t be happier with the final result! It is big, perfectly printed and it will serve as a great memory of our adventures together!
