Online Photo-Book Services

Postby Richard » Sat Dec 31, 2016 7:23 pm

I don't think anyone has posted this topic yet!

You've old photo's in your computer for storage and want to make a display book to present to someone, perhaps a relative in hospital who needs cheering up.
Many companies offer a 'service' whereby you upload photo's and take your chance...

I have tried the cheapest online photo-book printing service by 'Aldi' and found great difficulty in placing the photographs, as well as losing all my efforts when the 'project'
a) does not always 'save' adequately, or
b) the whole process falls apart on trying to connect to a payment service which re-directs me to a stage which entails a laborious repeat of the original endeavour.

Boots and Tesco seem fairly rubbish too - has anyone had better luck?

Hi Richard

You may (or may not) have noticed my entry into the online printing market last year. As a graphic designer I was originally quite involved with the print side of things, until the internet came along and diverted my attention in a big way.

It then seemed like an obvious move to combine them both and offer an online printing service. Back to my roots in a way I suppose.

I have not gone as far as offering photo-books and the like, but specialised in the photo prints and posters side of the market.

I agree, the majority of similar services (even from the big boys) offer clunky and often unforgiving web interfaces that are confusing to use and try to offer too much. So my primary goal was to make the print shop website as simple as possible. Choose your print type, upload your file, add delivery details and pay online. Voila... receive your prints in the post.

I can't vouch for any other online print service (I would be silly to promote the opposition) but wish you the best of luck with the photo-book idea.
