Colorworld portfolios: Create perfect portfolios, books and albums with Colorworld

Explore the range of photo books and albums from Colorworld and find your next purchase


Whether you’re looking to collate all of your best photos for a portfolio, create a family album to share with loved ones, or need to create a wedding or portrait album for a client, Colorworld has a wide range of photo albums and books to choose from. There are multiple paper types, materials and colours available, too! Business development manager Mike Brydon tells us more about the range.

What is unique about the Colorworld range of photo albums and books?

Colorworld have been producing wedding albums and photobooks for over ten years. During this period, we have dedicated our time to producing products that we ourselves would be proud to own for our special day.

Producing a product such as an album or photobook requires a variety of skills, including colour management, high printing and old-fashioned book binding. It’s this combination that comes together to make a Colorworld album or photobook.

Our main album ranges  are the Artisan and Renaissance range. The Artisan is a combination of matted and flush-mounted pages, while the Renaissance range has digital-style pages.

We have included all our albums and photobooks as templates in our Colorworld Designer Pro software, allowing the user to quickly produce their designs with minimum effort, but maximum effect. We also pride ourselves on aiming for a five-working-day turnaround for both albums and photobooks, whilst offering discounts for multiple copies of the same design.

Do you have a personal favourite?

It’s got to be the Artisan album. This has the traditional style of matted pages but has been given a modern upgrade with flush mounted pages as well. It’s also available in both black or white mattes and can be designed really quickly in our Colorworld Designer Pro software.

Which albums are most popular with customers?

The most popular by far is the Renaissance with an acrylic cover in either 12x12in or a 14x10in landscape format. A great upgrade to this is a metallic print under the acrylic to really make the front cover pop.

Which albums would you recommend for weddings or portraits?

A great option for portrait photography is the Lifestyle albums, available in both Artisan and Renaissance styles. Generally, portraits albums have fewer pages in them, so we offer a thicker page in order to keep the album feeling substantial and of high quality. Wedding photographers generally go for the Renaissance range of albums, and if you’re looking for a budget range, the photobooks are a great alternative.
