Understanding different types of photo albums
When it comes to preserving your cherished memories, photo albums are a timeless choice. However, there are various types of photo albums available, each with its unique features and advantages. Understanding the different options can help you choose the right one that best suits your needs.
Slip-in photo albums
One popular type is the slip-in album, also known as a photo pocket album. These albums have pre-designed crystal-clear sleeves on each page where you can simply slide in your photos. The advantage of this type is that it offers quick and easy organisation without any adhesive required. This makes slip-in albums ideal for those who like to frequently change their display or want to protect their photographs from adhesive damage over time.
Our range of albums includes memo slip-in photo albums which allows you space next to each photo to record a memo or note on memo lines, about each of your treasured memories and serve as a reminder about that important photo, event or celebration for many years into the future.
Dry mount photo albums
Drymount photo albums (also referred to as pergamyn albums, loose-leaf page albums or photo mountable albums) have blank pages that do not have any pockets or adhesive. By having blank pages, these type of traditional photo albums allow you to position your photos onto each page in any way that suits you. A variety of photos sizes (such as 4x6inch, 5x7inch, 6x8inch, 8x10inch, 8x12inch, polaroid photos and more) can be displayed in a flexible way as desired.
Dry mount photo albums also allow you to include other items such as postcards, maps, tickets and other mementos, which would not be possible using a slip-in photo album. The pages are also ideal for you to be able to write a note, title or messages anywhere onto the page, to help you tell your story about that important photo, event, moment, place, person or celebration.
Drymount photo albums do require you use photo mounting accessories such as photo adhesives, photo corners or photo splits (tabs) as a method of attaching photos onto the page to keeps them in place.

Self-adhesive photo albums
Another option is the traditional or self-adhesive album, also known as a magnetic page album or an easy mount album. These albums feature pages with sticky backings protected by a crystal-clear film that easily peels off the page to allow for flexible mounting of your photos, images, tickets and other mementoes arranged in any format.
These also allow multiple size photos or horizontal and vertical photos on the same page. Simply return the clear film back onto the page and your photos are now ready for viewing. The clear film also provides protection from dust, scratches and fingerprints.
The main benefit of these albums is there is no need for photo adhesives such as photo corners or photo splits (tabs) as the adhesive on the page keeps your photo in place. Photos can also be re-arranged or exchanged very easily.

Photo albums for life's special occasions
When it comes to preserving memories of life's milestones and special occasions, nothing beats a traditional photo album. Whether you're looking for a beautiful lace covered wedding album, a cute new baby album, or a commemorative school album, photo albums have the power to transport us back in time and relive those beautiful moments.
One of the main advantages of a traditional photo albums is their ability to spark conversations and bring people together. Unlike digital photos that are often shared on social media platforms and easily forgotten, physical albums can be passed around at family gatherings or shared with friends over coffee. The act of thumbing through a family photo album allows us to reminisce with our loved ones and create deeper connections as we recall shared experiences.
Another feature of creating a photo album is the process of selecting your favourite pictures and arranging them in a way that tells a story – capturing not just faces but also emotions and atmospheres. Through this process, we gain an appreciation for the little details that might have gone unnoticed at the time but now hold great significance. In curating an album for life's special occasions, we become storytellers weaving together images into narratives that will be cherished for years to come.

A photo album is a book or binder that is used to store and display photographs.
Photo albums are not just a collection of pictures; they are a visual narrative of our lives, capturing the moments that shape who we are. In today's digital age where everything is stored on cloud drives or social media platforms, the value of physical photo albums may be overlooked. However, there is something uniquely magical about flipping through pages adorned with memories and reliving those precious moments.
One of the main reasons why photo albums are important is their ability to preserve memories for future generations. They serve as historical artifacts, telling stories and passing down family legacies. When your share your albums with your children or grandchildren, you provide them with glimpses into their origins and help them to develop a sense of belonging and identity.
Photo albums also evoke emotions that cannot be replicated by scrolling through a screen. As you touch each photograph and turn the page, you engage multiple senses – sight and touch – which fosters a deeper connection to the images captured in time. The act of organising pictures into an album also allows you to curate your own narratives. You can arrange photos in chronological order or tell specific stories by grouping related images together.
So, take some time to dig out those old shoeboxes filled with nostalgic treasures and start creating your own photo album today.
Consider factors such as size, capacity, material, and style when choosing a photo album. Think about how many photos you have and what type of design or theme you prefer. We've also created a library of photo album buying guides you might find helpful.

Many of our photo albums allow personalisation options inside them, such as memo writing areas for adding any text, titles, captions or dates. Look for albums with this included in their description, if you want to add a personal touch. Dry mount photo albums are also popular for this, because they have blank pages which you can write on or decorate however you prefer.

Avoid placing heavy objects on top of the album to prevent any damage. Use a soft cloth to gently wipe away dust from the cover and pages if necessary.
