How do I upload my photos?

Click the ‘Create my album’ button at the top of the screen.

How long will my book take to make?

Our handmade albums usually take around 1-2 weeks. This can be a little longer during busy periods. If you need your photo album for a certain date, email us on hello@my1stphotos.co.uk with your order number and we'll see if we can help.


 

Can I use photo collages in my album?

Yes, they look really good!  You'll need to make up the collage beforehand and then upload it to your album. There are several apps you can do this with.

Are the photo albums baby safe

Yes, we use non-toxic ink and 100% polyester fabric. They're perfectly chewable and can be washed too.

Do you do gift vouchers?

Yes, they're available on our products page. They'll be emailed to you as a PDF.


 

Can I use the photos from my phone?

Yes! Screen shots don’t come out very well, but most phone photos are fine. Just make sure they're not too dark as they won't look very clear when printed.


 

How many pages can I have in an album?

We do 6, 10, 14 and 18 page versions of our photo album. You can choose to have photos, text or collages on any page.


 

Can I buy as a gift for someone to add the photos later?

Yes, of course. We can send PDF Gift Vouchers by email for you to give as a gift.
