Personalizing Your Coffee Table Book
Adding a Cover

Sometimes, it’s alright to judge a book by its cover, especially if it’s the book displayed on your coffee table. Having an eye-catching cover is everything when you’re looking to design some cool coffee table books for your home.

Let Your Fave Photo Shine

This is the fun part, but arguably possibly the hardest part, because how can you choose?! Have a photo filled with a lot of meaning you want to be the star of your book, or a really amazing shot you took that you’re quite proud of? Add your favorite snapshot as the cover photo of your photo coffee table book. If you really can’t choose, have a family vote, flip a coin, or maybe browse some of the designer cover options.

Designer Cover Options

Want to save all of your best photos for the inside like a sneaky little surprise, or just looking for something to really stand out? Try browsing some designer covers! There’s a cover option for every occasion, plus gorgeous designs ranging from florals to woodsy to colorful, there’s a design for every taste. P.S. Don’t forget to think of a jazzy title that will be displayed on the cover and the spine!

How to Make a Collage Page

There are many good reasons why you may want to add a collage page to your coffee table book. You can remember a sequence of events exactly how it happened, i.e. you baking that beautiful cake, a picture of the cake in question, your dog entering the shot, the cake going airborne, your dog’s snout covered in icing as he enjoys the aftermath. (This sequence of events will be your ice-breaker for years to come!). Adding a collage page keeps the story on one page. Pro tip: it also allows you to add more photos without adding more pages. You’re welcome. 

Add some pizzazz to your photography coffee table books by including a collage page:

  1. Select the page you wish to add a collage to
  2. Find the different page format icons at the bottom of the screen
  3. Select the “collage” icon, choose which format, and add your photos

It’s that easy! 

Creating meaningful home decor doesn’t have to entail hours of crafting and hard work, it’s really as simple as creating a beautiful photo book right from your phone. Whether you opt to show off your best moments through creating large coffee table books using a Layflat Photo Book or shake things up with a collection of Classic Photo Books, you’ll be thankful you did! Get ready to have your heart warmed from watching your family and friends lovingly look at each page of your photo books. Look forward to being able to create impressive photo books as decor and show off your new coffee table books.
