▶ 1: How can you capture my story and ensure the book looks great?
Our designers are the real deal. They’re experts in artistry and storytelling. What's more, they're good at techy things–like improving your photos so they’ll print well and using each image's timestamp to organize your photos chronologically. You can meet our team here.
Technology has come a long way, but it can’t make human judgment calls–such as knowing when to crop an image to remove distractions or telling the difference between a genuine smile and one that looks strained. Our designers will sift through your pictures to drop unnecessary duplicates, awkward shots and fuzzy images, and they will showcase your best photos.
You’ll also have a direct connection with your designer. If you have any favorite photos that absolutely must make it in - or any other special requests - just let your designer know, and they'll make it happen.
As far as what your book will look like, we’ve spent years creating photo albums and refining our unique style. Our customers love the simple, timeless formats we use for our books. No tacky rainbow stickers here! We’re all about YOUR photos and YOUR story!

Upload photos easily through our website and receive a precise quote.
Our designers create beautiful, hardcover photobooks that use premium quality paper and the latest printing techniques. They are about the size of a piece of 8.5"x11" paper and are horizontally oriented. The size is elegant yet not unwieldy.
You must make one order per book but you can always order additional copies of your book if you like. If in the future, you want a copy of a book you’ve already ordered – no problem! Just email us at email@example.com
When you place your order, you will be prompted to upload your photos. Once we have your photos, we'll get to work creating your custom photobook! Expect to see a digital copy of your book for review in ten days. We'll make any adjustments based on your feedback. Once you approve the digital copy, the book is printed, and will be mailed to you right away. Any questions at all throughout this process, just contact your personal designer directly or reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
▶ 3: Isn't it cheaper and faster to use one of those DIY companies?
Sure, DIY is cheaper - but that's because YOU are doing all the work! Using a DIY company is COSTING you. How much is 10, 20, or even 50+ hours of your time worth to you? If you figure that out, it's not cheaper.
And DIY is not faster. It’s rare that someone sits down and creates a DIY book in less time than one of our designers because DIY software is confusing and glitchy. And the book still must be printed and shipped to you so there’s no time savings there. Not only does DIY take a lot of your time, the results aren’t close to what we can create for you.
If you want to learn about DIY customer experiences, just check out their reviews, and you’ll see that even the best reviews mention damaged products and missing pages. And the bad ones? Well, the bad ones contain a myriad of complaints ranging from faces printed too dark to entire groups of people decapitated. (You really do get what you pay for.)
You don’t have to worry about any of this with Luminta. You reclaim your time and sanity while real, honest-to-goodness humans who care about telling your story ensure that quality and design are top notch.
▶ 4: How much will this cost?
Everybody’s photobook is unique. This means the cost of making each book needs to be customized. We offer free estimates and 20 minute consultations, but in order to start creating your photobook we require that you upload your photos with a deposit so we can provide you with a accurate quote for the project.
What goes into the price? There are many variables to consider when calculating the final price such as the number of photos submitted, the number of photos we actually use in the book, how many photos are displayed on each page, the total number of pages, and finally your preferred style of book.
▶ 5: What about privacy?
We're committed to providing you with a safe place to share your pictures - (you know, in case you drop your phone in the loo or splash coffee your laptop).
Furthermore, we only hire trustworthy people, who have had background checks, to design our photobooks.
