RapidStudio personalised diaries are one of the easiest, fastest and most rewarding products to order for yourself or as a gift. Using RapidStudio’s easy online editor, they can be made and ordered in around 5 minutes.
Personalised diaries are a fun way to stay organised and make an excellent, easy, treasured gift - especially at Christmas time. RapidStudio diaries offers a page-a-day view and customised hard cover binding for easy opening, and long-lasting durability that a well-used diary demands.
If you’re wondering what are the cheapest photobooks, softcovers are a great option. Perhaps you want to capture an event and share a copy with many people as a keepsake or to showcase a product but the budget for your photobooks is limited. Softcover photobooks are available in sizes A5 and A4 and printed on 135gsm paper. The binding is saddle stitched and self-cover (cover same paper as leaves inside). Softcover photobooks can be made with up to 56 pages. RapidStudio has prepared a number of professional photobook designs on our online editor to help you make a beautiful photobook, or use our recommended theme which offers a clean, simple layout that makes your images the hero of the book - free from distraction, just crisp, beautiful imagery. As softcover photobooks aren’t protected by a hardcover, they aren’t as durable and will wear with touch in time. If you’re after something more long-wearing we suggest our hardcover photo books, but often softcover photobooks can serve a specific purpose and budget well.
Back-to-schoolers, busy moms, office dads and besties love RapidStudio’s personalised notebooks. They make fantastic exercise books, notebooks and journals. Make a statement and stay organised with your personalised cover notebooks. RapidStudio’s online editor makes these quick, easy and fun to make and order.

Each exercise book offers professional printing and durable binding that is designed to withstand book bag carrying. A variety of page counts and print styles are available and make fantastic, affordable personalised gifts.
Little things mean a lot! RapidStudio’s bragbooks mini photo album range are pocket-sized and pack a punch!
Our smallest photobook at 7.5 x 7.5cm is our accordion photo book which, as the name suggests, z-folds up and opens out like an accordion. It holds a total of 12 pictures including front and back cover pictures. Accordion photo book pages are printed on a heavier card paper and come with their own protective sleeve (to survive being jostled around in granny’s handbag, at-the-ready to whip out pics of the grandkids at any moment)!
Our personal favourite in the brag book series is the Instabook. 10cm x 10cm and printed in our Ultimates Department on professional photographic paper. The pages are high-quality butterfly bound encased in richly-textured canvas cover available in black, creme and grey.
Hardcover A5 bragbooks - similar to their big brothers and sisters in our Hardcover photobook range, these books are printed on silk paper and allow for a beautiful personlised printed cover featuring your favourite picture.
And finally the softcover minibooks are 9.5cm x 7cm landscape, printed on silk paper and self cover (cover made from the same paper as the photobook pages). They are excellent as a small budget photobook or when you want to make a beautiful visual photo product to share with a lot of people for an affordable price.
When it comes to a choice about softcover vs hardcover photobooks, it really comes down to budget, size and durability - if budget is limited and you want something small that doesn’t need to last, softcover photobooks can serve a great need. If it’s a special keepsake - hardcover photobooks are definitely the way to go.
