RapidStudio personalised hardcover photo diary


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.

Softcover Photobooks

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.
