How Pricing Works At Luminta


Ready to create your photobook? Learn more about pricing for Luminta's Photobooks

At Luminta, we take pride in providing you with the best possible pricing for your fully bespoke photobook. As your photobook is as unique as your memories, our team is with you every step of the way to ensure that your photobook is designed to perfection with whatever customizations and additions you request. Nothing is too big or small!  

As every project as unique, please note there are a few MAJOR factors in what allows our designers to provide you with the lowest estimate and final cost:

  • Review of Number of Photos You Submit (included in your base price): The lower the volume of photos and the more culled your photos are, the easier it is for our experts to review and design your book
  • Keeper Rate (included in your base price): The number of photos kept or culled down from the number photos you've submitted. (For example you submitted 100 photos, but we kept 60 photos, your keeper rate is 60% )
  • Time required to sort your photos: If your photos are already sorted and have digital descriptions (what we refer to as metadata!), this is included in your base price. However, any pictures with no digital descriptions (metadata) and require manual sorting is billed at $110/hr
  • Additional Designer Time Required (billed at $110/hr) for tasks such as:
    • Sorting photos that do not have metadata
    • Additional Photos added after the design process has already begun
    • Additional review time due to additional photos or customizations
  • Design Customizations (billed at $110/hr) such as:
    • Adding Captions
    • Adding any other design elements you request!
  • Additional Copies: Should you choose to add more than one copy of your book, our team will bill you each copy
