I really love looking through the albums my Mum has of my sisters and me growing up. I have wanted to do something similar for the girls for a very long time, the difficulty was I have almost 2000 images of my youngest in her first year and a similar number for my eldest. When Vistaprint gave me the opportunity to trial a photobook I had to jump at the chance.
The ordering process was really straight forward. I downloaded an editing tool and added all of my images, yes nearly 2000 images. I then spent the next few days rearranging the images and resizing them onto 120 pages. Once I was happy with my design I pressed order. I ordered an XL which is 39x28 cm and a S which is 13x10 cm.
I chose to have the books in hard back and added a photo to the front and text onto the spine. I liked the different binding options as you can have standard or layflat. I went for layflat which means when the book is open the pages lay flat. I also chose Glossy paper from the standard finish. I was very excited for the books to arrive. The delivery process was very fast it was just a shame I was not in when they delivered and had to collect from the post office.
I am incredibly pleased with the results. Layflat really does lay flat, the pages feel like they are printed on high quality glossy paper. I can see each image clearly. The finish to the book is of a very high standard and I am very happy with the photo books.
I have not stopped looking at these photos. The small one lives in my bag and goes everywhere and the larger one I like to have it on my knee and each time I open it I find a photo I had forgotten about and it brings back some wonderful memories.
Vistaprint also have a wide range of other items available including business cards, stationary, key rings and party invites.
