can i get this spiral bound portfolio book in 8.5 by 11 or smaller?

I am going to have to submit a spiral bound portofolio as part of my college application, this looks perfect, but the max size I am allowed is 8.5" by 11", do you print spiral bound photo books of this size? Closest thing I found was a calendar but thats bound on the top and has a hole punched in it so isn't what I'm looking for.

Greetings from PrestoPhoto and thanks for your interest.

I am sorry but we don't offer what you are looking for :(

We have an 8.5x11 but it's not offered with wire-o binding, here is a link to our product catalog:


Good luck with your application :)

Cardboard stock paper

'm looking for a photo book who's pages are as thick as cardboard and has a hardcover. Can you do this type of book? If so, what is the cost?

I am so sorry we don't offer that type of board book. I'm not sure if any print on demand printer does at this time.

Personally I think Shutterfly is the only one that is comparable in quality to PrestoPhoto and they are twice the price.

For reviews/comparisons check:

Independent reviews?

Hi, I'm comparison shopping for photo album printing services, and my highest priorities are: 1. quality of printed images 2. quality look/feel and 3. ease of use

I saw one review that said your quality was equal to Snapfish, however, I've found Snapfish's print quality to be poor. Can you point me to any 3rd party independent reviews of your service, compared to others? I would be most interested in photography magazine reviews.

What about the cover

by Jud, Thu 22 of May, 2008 (16:46 UTC)
What kind of a cover does this large portfolio have? Is it a stiff material or is it bendable. I'm really interested in building wedding proof books with this, but that requires a certain look and material involved.

Hi Jud,
Some of my previous post may help in other areas *see down below. For my dad's book on WWII photos I am definitely going with the 12.5 x 10 b/c of the cover. I've ordered the 11 x 14 before, loved it, but it wasn't for clients wanting a "coffee table book". The cover for the 11 x 14 isn't as study or glossy as the other softbound book covers. It's a great proof book for the price and to show off a portfolio, but the other one, in my opinion, will be wedding client quality. Judy
Re: Same heavy paper for hardcover and softcover portfolio books?

Hi Judy,

Only the 14"x11" uses the heavy 120# paper. For black and whites, the Silk paper of the 12.5"x10" will likely produce much better blacks.

Let us know if you have any more questions!
Same heavy paper for hardcover and softcover portfolio books?
Posted: 03 Apr 2008 13:10,
I've gone to the book and paper spec pages but am still trying to figure out if the hardcover portfolio book (12.5" x 10") uses the same 120# interior paper as the softcover portfolio book (11" x 14"). The only clue I can find is this:

For our "Quick Binding" and material bound hardcover books, we offer a 100# light gloss Photo Silk, 96 Bright. This is a phenomenal paper that provides wonderful color, a professional smooth appearance, and long lasting binding quality. For "Pro Binding" books we use 80# satin paper.

Also, the album is going to be all black and white photos (grey scale) on a white background, so which portfolio (hard or soft) would be best for that if there is a paper difference?

Thanks, Judy

The 14x11 cover stock is 100lb cover stock which is thicker than the 120 lb text stock. It is considered softcover. Here is a link to our paper specs page just so you can have a bit more information about our paper.

Maternity Photobook

by Laurita, Tue 08 of Apr, 2008 (19:00 UTC)
Hi, I have a question. I want to create a Maternity Photobook.
I have only 17 pics. All of them are in "portrait" orientation.
Actually only one, that I want in the cover is in "landscape". I want to create a very high quality photobook, with a very sofisticated finish.
Can I custom make my own book? How does it work? Can I pick the background?
Can I have it made 8X11 pic size in a portrait orientation?
