A4 photo books with a saddle-stitch binding

Saddle-stitch bound photo books allow you to flick through the pages of a photo collection in a casual and entertaining way. On one hand, the saddle-stitch binding and 170 gsm pages make the photobook light and flexible; on the other, A4 portrait (8.27 × 11.69") is a popular standardised size used in magazines and editorial publications.

A4 portrait photo books with a saddle-stitch binding offer one of the best photobook deals in the online printing industry: for £9.99 it is possible to design an economical 12-page photo book and have it printed on premium inkjet printing sheets. To ensure a professional result, it is highly recommendable to order it with an additional glossy film. A high-gloss finish provides a polished look and enhances the different colour shades.

As A4 saddle stitch-bound photo books have a similar appearance to that of a magazine, they are suitable for creating birthday newspapers , personalised comics, personalised hen party magazines and all kinds of DIY magazines.

Instead of A4 size, the same type of book with a saddle-stitch binding can be ordered as an A5 photobook, which is even cheaper (£8.99). Nevertheless, in this case the pages will be landscape, rather than portrait-oriented.

Custom photo books & DIY magazines

Custom photo books define any personal collection of photos that has been customised either with design elements or with text. These graphic elements include custom shapes, lines, cliparts, backgrounds and filters. Besides, all provided photobook templates are completely customisable. Thus, what distinguishes a custom photo book is the fact that it is unique, original, personal and irreplaceable (unless you make copies of it).

A4 portrait photo books are often produced in the form of saddle-stich bound DIY magazines. The common practice in these DIY magazines is to include funny photographs, witty messages, jokes, photo montages and photo collages.

In this way, you can print your own magazine or newspaper to prepare a wedding, a special celebration and social events. Thanks to the economical price, you can save money to organise your event and make more copies.  Some nice ideas for creating a personalised magazine are:

  • a best friend's magazine,
  • a birthday magazine,
  • a day-you-were-born newspaper
  • a back-to-school or first-day-at-school magazine,
  • a personalised wedding magazine.

Magazine maker or comic genius?

myphotobook's online magazine maker is an intuitive design tool that allows you to make a magazine or a newspaper using your own pictures.  The magazine creator can be used online or offline (free-download) on a computer, mobile phone or tablet.

As for the images that are used to create a DIY magazine, it is important to check the provided resolution. In A4 saddle-stitch bound photo books (portrait-oriented), the recommended image resolution is of 1.654 x 2.173 pixels, whereas in A5 magazines (landscape) these values stay at 2.000 x 1.400. As a matter of fact, these resolution values can be normally found in any smartphone. Therefore, most of the pictures you have taken with your phone can be uploaded to the magazine maker. In case the picture has insufficient quality, myphotobook's design tool will display a warning message, asking you to perform changes.

To save a project on myphotobook's platform, it will be necessary to create a personal account on the website. Otherwise, you will have to download the software to your computer.

How to make a magazine

To make a magazine online, you just need to follow these steps:

  • Step 1: store the magazine pictures in a folder,
  • Step 2: upload the pictures to the magazine maker,
  • Step 3: select one of the available templates,
  • Step 4: create an original magazine cover design.

Many like to imitate the front cover of famous magazines, such as Time, Vogue, Cosmopolitan or Rolling Stone. If your imagination excels the standard magazine templates, feel free to customise every bit of the photobook or design it from the very beggining. In a magazine, you may want to combine a group of pictures on the same page. For this, select the picture, resize it and insert the next picture. DIY magazines are unusual and funny gifts that leave a good impression and are easily remembered.

Make your own comic

Comics and cartoon strips are indeed full of phantasy and interesting graphic ressources. For your children, making their own comic can be an excellent idea to present a school project. Design a balloon to include epic phrases and present the people in the scenes as real comic heroes. Visual filters - such as black & white or vintage - let you transform the atmosphere of a photo and create light effects.
Tell the story of your last holidays, how you met your soulmate or immortalise the best snaps from you birthday party like a Japanese manga with the help this online comic maker.

As soon as your project of a DIY magazine, birthday newspaper or personalised comic with a saddle-stitch binding has been completed, it is time to place the order online. Before you actually proceed, it is important to check the final result in preview mode. If everything looks exactly as you wanted it to be, you can continue to the next step. If not, feel free to contact our customer service.

Next, add the A4 portrait photo book to the shopping trolley and make sure that the dimensions, picture orientation, book binding and price coincide with the intended order. You will be then requested to provide a delivery address and billing details. Last, you will have to specify how you would like to pay: it's either by credit card, money transfer or PayPal. Finally, the order will be confirmed by e-mail.
