“I took so many pictures on my family's summer vacation but couldn't find time to make
a photo book afterward. I tried this service, and my family loves the book!” —Kate
Here's how it works
Choose what you want
Select a book size and style. Upload photos or entire albums from your desktop or Shutterfly account. We'll design your book. We can even curate your best photos for you.
Receive your book
In 3 business days, we'll add your custom designed photo book to your account and email you to let you know it's ready.
View and order your book
Order your book as is or personalize it with your own finishing touches. The one time $9.99 service fee is applied once you order your finished book.
Quick tips to get the best book
- Select your style carefully
We have styles for every occasion. Consider the story captured in your photos while scrolling through our styles, previewing the ones you like. Then select the style you love best for your book.
- Select photos with date/time info
Our goal is to design a beautiful photo book that tells your story in chronological order. If too many photos are missing the date/time information, we'll ask you to confirm the order in which you'd like to see these photos in the book.
- More photos, more pages
The more photos you upload, the more pages we'll create. However, the more pages in your book, the more it will cost. Please let us know in the Special Instructions section if you have a page count in mind (a 20-page book usually holds 60-80 photos with a maximum of 220 photos).
- Provide Special Instructions
We want to know all we can about the photo book you want. So we included a few questions about your design preferences and a Special Instructions section on the last page of the request. Please tell us about the story captured in your photos, how you'd like to see the photos organized and anything else you think would be helpful.
- Easy finishing touches
After receiving your book, order it as is or personalize it on your computer with your own finishing touches. To find out how easy it is to move and change photos, add captions and embellishments, watch our quick video "Adding finishing touches to your photo book".
