Presentation boxes




The best photo book presentation boxes in Australia

Our presentation boxes are the ultimate finishing touch for any premium photo book. They're a stylish way to display and protect family photo keepsakes, the perfect accessory for a wedding album, and a unique packaging option for photo book gifts. Add a box to your order to create a memorable unboxing experience.

Box types

First impressions count so maximise the impact by showcasing your photo books in beautifully handcrafted presentation boxes.

We have two types:

Photo box options

Clamshell box

Our top shelf option is a heavyweight box, hinged on one side, lined with matte black paper and finished in your choice of cover material. They make the perfect photo book complement and extend its lifetime through safe keeping. Create a bespoke box by adding some decorative text embossing.


Life's most important moments deserve to live large, so our presentation boxes are available for Regular and Grand size books.


Dimensions (mm) Grand Regular
Landscape 450 x 330 mm 330 x 242 mm
Portrait 333 x 450 mm 242 x 330 mm
Square 330 x 330 mm 242 x 242 mm

Keep it simple by featuring a favourite photo on a printed cover, or dial up the personalisation by choosing a fabric from our range of textured cloths and contemporary papers. Choose the cover finishes that best suit the personality of your book or the receiver.


Printed boxes

Photo print covers wrap around the box and are finished in your choice of velvet matte or gloss laminate. Be aware that spine text is not available on printed Clamshell boxes. See our quick guide how to design a printed Clamshell box.
