I must admit that I prefer this over Pixart simply because of the overall feel and texture of the finished product. While the paper is not as glossy as Pixart’s pages, it has a canvas-like texture to it, which is very similar to photo printing done by bridal studios. This could be a personal thing but I prefer non-glossy finishes to my photos.
The photo on the front cover is basically the first page printed out to size and then stuck on it, which makes it easier for wrapping up these babies in plastic for safekeeping and maintenance. One of my favourite aspects about Photobook is the ability to replace the entire page with your own designs instead of sticking firmly to the template. That way, you get to utilize every single space on your page and it makes it look more professional really.
While Photobook’s products are a bit tad more expensive, they have different sizes of albums and even posters as well as greeting cards. Frankly, I don’t mind paying a little tad more for a flexible software that allows me to churn out whatever I like/want. I bought a couple of vouchers during their Merdeka promotion and end up getting freebies!!!! Right now, I can’t wait to finish up the design for their A3 posters….really wonderful stuff here!!!!
This is definitely a keeper!!! For more information, do drop by their website and no, they are not paying me to say all this. Anyway, here are the last two pictures I took this morning before my camera went all nuts on me. It explains the weird colours, if you hadn’t realized…the book looks way better in reality!
