Custom Magazines Overview

Like an album but for a fraction of the price, Custom Magazines are soft cover books with flexible pages in which you upload your own layouts. Custom Magazines are press-printed and provide the vibrant, detailed print quality made possible by HP Indigo printers. Covers are gloss coated and pages are matte coated with black end sheets. Sizes 8x8" and 8.5x11".

Need pre-designed layouts? We've got alternatives within the same, budget-friendly price point: Press Printed Preview Books give you the most cover options with press-printed pages. Or if you prefer photographic print pages, choose our spiral-bound Preview Booklet

Check our current turnaround times especially during holidays and promotions. Normal estimated turnaround is 2-3 business days.
