Whether it’s your baby’s first year, your summer vacation or your wedding, designing the perfect photo book is easy with our Photo Book Designer. Choose from dozens of premade beautiful and classic templates and drag and drop your memories easily. Or you can have complete control and design it yourself from scratch. The choice is yours.

Smart tools are there to help guide you along the design process. You can also choose from several different cover options and paper options to customize your photo book so it will be as unique as your experience. 

2) Wall Design Wizard

Ready to be your own interior designer? It’s easy with the Printiqe Wall Design Wizard. It’s a desktop tool featured under our Wall Decor section that lets you create classic, clean, eclectic or somewhere-in-between wall galleries. Visualize what any room in your home would look like with your custom photos displayed on the wall. Start from a room template. Then choose from any of our pre-configured wall arrangements and drop your custom photos right in. You can use different rooms, furniture and wall, and floor textures to get creative. Or you can upload a photo of your actual room!

You can mix products like metal prints, wood prints, framed prints or  canvas prints. You can move the arrangements around and choose different sizes. Our wall designer allows you to see exactly what your space would look like without putting one nail hole in the wall before installation.

3) Collage Tool

When one photo for display is just not enough, we give you the Collage Tool. Located under the wall decor section, the collage tool allows you to create exciting layouts. Our easy-to-follow design process will allow you to select the exact look you’re after. Upload your digital images and choose your style, size and print product.

The collage tool is perfect for your favorite Instagram photos or perhaps you’d like a poster calendar with your own images. But wait, there’s more including letter art, wall plaques, and portrait packages. Whatever your needs, the collage tool is an important tool to help you get the most out of your photos.

We make printing easy with our Print Wizard whether you are at home or on the go.

Whatever path you choose, we make it easy and intuitive.
