Misleading customer service
I liked the design options and the software, but after tracking my order daily (I was eager to get my product in time for a significant birthday) and using the customer service chat, I was told conflicting information (that it would be dispatched on a particular day - it wasn't; that I would receive it in time for my deadline; I am unlikely to) and was not impressed with how the person on the other end dealt with my concern about this. They were defensive and dismissive.
Despite being assured I would make the deadline of when I needed the book by, I am unlikely to now. I won't be using again or recommending them.
Great customer service. Very satisfied with the quality of the product.
Software was easy to use. Albumworks went above and beyond when they contacted me with advice regarding a few of the pages. The book was better for it. Shipment was quick. I feel like this small Melbourne business really cares about their customers and wants to establish themselves as a big contender. I hope they continue to grow. I'll definitely use them again.
Excellent quality and easy to do
I wanted a good photo quality photobook of our travels and tested Albumworks.
The image quality on the higher quality 250gsm photo paper is excellent and the overall product is well put together.
I had a small issue of the website not accepting my card for payment and a quick call to customer service cleared this up quickly.
From what I can tell, It's an Australian company and the printing is done in Malaysia.
Delivery was fast and traceable.
They have been a pleasure to deal with and I am now working on my next Albumworks photobook project.
Software is a nightmare
Having made several photo books with Jessops in the UK and also one with albumworks Australia, I can firmly state that the software albumworks use is far too inferior. I like to have pages filled 100% with a large number of pictures, because hey, these photo books aren't cheap and I have a tonne of photos. If you want pictures touching each other, you have to spend ages manually doing this. If you want more than say 3 pictures with a 1cm gap between all of them, you have to spend ages doing this on the software. In the end I gave up on my albumworks photo album and made a photo calendar instead. The guidelines on where the "hole punch" would go were not clear. I knew the side borders needed some lee-way space but this was not made apparent for the top border where the hole punches went.
Great quality, speedy processing and delivery
First time Albumworks user after trying many other suppliers. Both of my books were printed beautifully, with fabulous colour reproduction and sharp images. The books are very well bound (one of my books had over 100 pages) and paper quality is superb. Production and delivery time was incredibly fast (within a week), especially for xmas time. Books arrived securely packaged. The software I found to be relatively easy and far less "clunky" than others. I compile numerous books each year and will only be using Albumworks from now on.
Excellent quality and service
This is the second year that I have used this company to make a calendar, and the third time I have dealt with the company. The printing is now done in Malaysia, not sure whether that is a change from last year. The quality of the printing is unchanged, and is still excellent. Last time I found the software to be a bit difficult, not so this time. I now use Windows rather than Mac, which might explain the difference. There is online help available.
What is most impressive is the speed of printing and delivery. We ordered the calendar on a Thursday and it arrived before 8 on Monday morning, Christmas Eve. It was printed and sent to the courier on Friday. DHL couriers are excellent, tracking all the way.
Very highly recommended company.
Beautiful Wedding Album
I can't praise your company enough. The album you did for me was amazing. Firstly I got sent a sample of the paper as I was unsure. You then picked up a couple of my mistakes which I corrected before print. From then on I got notification of where the album was up to. Even into the delivery right up to the day it was delivered. I will definitely be using Album works again and recommend your company to my friends. Thank you.
No longer functional
Having previously completed five photo books in the old format, I recent tried the new format and found it not to be user friendly with reduced options for formating pages. After four attempts at trying to create a new photo book I have given up in disgust and I will use another service provider.
First time user of albumworks after using several other services. I found the photos to be too dark. I won’t be using the service again.
happy with my result
I was sceptical after reading the reviews But I just got my book today and it turned out really good. I’m really happy with the result. None of the photos were out of place all the photos came out clear. Thank you
Worst Photo Book Ever!
I created 2 books with Albumworks, first and last time that I use them. The images do not look sharp and bright as they do when I took them. Some were taken on a beautiful sunny day and in the album book they look dark, almost like it was sunset time and it definitely wasn't. Some of these were taken at lunch time. The images no longer look sharp and bright. I am so disappointed to say the least. I tried contacting them but they did not respond. I will re-do them at K-Mart. No longer trust online photo sites now.
2nd time disappointment
My 1st album, our wedding album was stunning so I decided to use Album Works again and to date am really disappointed.
We did a holiday album and were notified that it had to be reprinted as it didn’t pass quality control. This didn’t both me as I was impressed of their commitment to deliver a quality product.
We received our book, over a dozen pages were stuck together and when we separated them the pages ripped.
To AlbumWorks credit after we emailed some pictures they emailed us and reprinted and delivered our second book.
Again, at least 4 pages were stuck together but the damage wasn’t as much and I actually felt guilty about contacting them again so I left it.
Come Easter and we being out our Album to show our family! Approx 60 pages in the pages started to just pop out every time your turned a page! Some were hanging on by a thread and others literally just fell out.
I then emailed with approx 7 photos expressing my disappointment. I received an apology and a notification today that our new album is on its way!
I almost dread opening the box to see what we will be receiving this time.... really disappointing to say that least. For a company that prides itself on quality control and quality assurance, I now have two $320 books that are well below the quality I would expect!
Best Photo Book Ever!
I was sceptical about the quality of the pages and the whole process itself at first. I took some amazing photos with a high quality camera and was not 100% certain that the resolution would be right.
I was wrong.
The colours are vibrant, the pictures are exactly like that on my camera and to see them blown up on a two page spread was amazing!
I got this as a first year wedding anniversary for my wife, I know she will love it and so will everyone else that looks at it.
I will definitely create another book with Albumworks!
Excellent as always
This is our 5 book, (but 1st one I have actually done myself), my wife is the expert.
As we have come to expect the support & service are excellent.
I had 2 technical issues but with help of them I was able to resolve with a simple telephone call.
The book is even better than I had thought.
They are not the cheapest on the market, but as they say "You get what you pay for" and it is well worth spending the little extra.
Good product, good service
I have made seven books using Albumworks and I have been very satisfied with the finished product. I used Microsoft for the first 5 and had no problem but now I have Apple Mac and had problems downloading and uploading but the support team were very helpful - thanks Micah, Clyde and Naomi. The Albumworks system is very user friendly and the delivery time exceptionally fast.
This was the first time we had used albumworks and we couldn’t be happier! We have just received the most beautiful photo book of our wedding! The colours were perfect and the photos looked absolutely brilliant in the book! It was so easy to put together and we received our album within a week! We can’t wait to show it off to friends and family and will definitely be recommending albumworks to everyone!
Excellent Customer Service
This was the first time I used Albumworks and I couldn't have been more impressed with their customer service. I made an error when submitting the file and I received very prompt emails alerting me to this and then when I phoned to ask a question, I was surprised to actually be able to speak to the person, Micah, who was working on my Album. He helped find a workable solution and also made sure that the order was processed quickly as the album was required within a few days.
Just received the album today and it looks wonderful. My only suggestion would be that the range of page backgrounds was increased/improved to include a better range of plainish but not totally plain options.
Exceeded all expectations!
First time with albumworks, spent hours on creating three special albums, I've received them in record time and each one exceeded all expectations, utterly delighted when I unwrapped them. Thank you Micah for the tips and patience when I called for support. Going with the hard covers and printing in HD proved brilliant. I would recommend this reliable Aussie company without hesitation, I will be back for more.
A quality product with excellent customer support
I have been using albumworks for years now having produced a number of photobooks and calendars. I have always found the quality of the product to be excellent and customer service second to none. I recently had a query and a minor problem which was solved in a very friendly and professional manner by Naomi. Thanks for your assistance. Naomi subsequently contacted me with a follow-up call and that's something that doesn't happen much these days. Keep up the good work. I already recommend albumworks to my family and friends.
I rang several times and received great advice and help every time. Special thanks to Naomi for getting me across the line. Product good quality, delivered on time and makes a wonderful personalised gift. Bought great joy to my friend on a special birthday.
