Part of being a business owner is testing out product before I offer it for my clients. It’s important for me to know the quality of an item before I put it in for hands. It’s something I’ve taken great pride in when offering top-notch high quality photo products for you!
I recently put in my first order through AdoramaPix. I’ve ordered camera gear and equipment through their camera store, so I knew their customer service and timeliness was great.
Without a prepared template for this book, I uploaded my photos and depended entirely on what AdoramaPix had to offer. They have several templates for many occasions, holidays, and events. Or you can start completely from scratch, which is what I did. I love a blank page! From photo upload to design, I would say I spend approximately 20 minutes (including my little love notes to my babies!) designing the entire thing. Cover, front to back. Very simple. The tools in the ordering system make design effortless and very fast!
Something important to remember when ordering photobooks is paper quality. Most print labs offer their books printed on several types of press print paper. Not photo paper. It is a much different quality and thickness. Press print is made for things like cards, or announcements. You know, things with printed text! Photo paper is made specifically for high quality photo prints. I didn’t expect it, but Adorama’s photobooks are printed on quality photo paper. The pages are thick and durable, and will last a lifetime of thumbing through memories.
The book I ordered is 8×12 in size, cover printed in Lustre. Which is a tiny bit metallic, which isn’t my taste but it works well with the images I used for the front and back covers.The pages are printed cover to cover, so there are no blank pages to separate the pages from the covers. I do prefer the blank page between cover & pages though. I’m not sure if that’s an option to add on?!
Overall, I really like the lay flat photobooks from AdoramaPix! They’re great quality books, available at very reasonable prices and best of all, they’re available for consumers all over! This lab isn’t restricted to professional photographers only. To all my clients, you will see AdoramaPix added to my list of preferred print labs for your purchased digital files!
If you’re quick, you can take advantage of the special they have going on now and get your photo book printed! Go for it!
