Perfect service...fast, super friendly and helpful...think only Momento
Received photobook very quickly. But postal service had damaged the cover. Without a problem Momento replaced book & had it to us in time for our family event. Best ever service!
Really thrilled with the product
I was very nervous about creating and buying a book with momento as it is very expensive. My book cost $90 but the quality is so brilliant that it was worth every cent. Very pleased. I would use again and I highly recommend.
I have just received the book, and I am thrilled to say the least. 200 pages long and I was very worried but all turned out fine. I would like to thank you for the perfect service, the great software and the efficiency of your company - More coming in the future. You are the professionals in this space.
Made several books, all turned out excellent
Software is the best I have seen but crashes a lot and so you need to save regularly.
Lots of creative and professional finishes
Love the text, frames and background options. Lots to chose from.
Not sure about the final PDF size for production. Around 1MBYTE per page for a 210x290mm page and my photos are usually 10-20Mbyte each. So they are certainly compressed a lot when sending to momento and so final photos are not as sharp when compared to my printer.
Yet they look good in the book.
I have used Momento to make my photo books for my last four years of holidays. Love the program, so easy to use the layouts provided or manually create your own. So easy and the final product is a of a high standard. The customer service is fantastic and prompt. I have used email, facebook and the customer service line to get help and the staff are fantastic. Can not praise this company enough. Great job Momento. Love your work. x
Fantastic Customer Service and Quality Product
I would highly recommend this company for your photobook needs. I was skeptical as to what the final product would ultimately look like (very OCD!) but was totally blown away when I received my photobook, within the promised timeframe and it was more beautiful than I could have imagined. The customer service is also second to none - they resolved quickly a small issue that arose (created by me!) exactly as I had hoped.
The linen cover, gold embedded title, dust cover and the binding are outstanding, the book looks and feels very
high quality, I am very happy with that, the program is good , could have a few tweeks. BUT after decades of photographing my Asian experience the main aim was to show the photos. They have come out as others have said Dull and Dark a complete waste. It is not my photos as the exact same photos were submitted to Vista print and the result was crisp and clear. VPs were done on Gloss, Momento do not give this option. The top grade lus...
Reprint of a damaged book
Unfortunately we recently received one of our photo books damaged on delivery. Momento went out of their way to replace the book for us urgently in time for Xmas. Their customer service is outstanding and most commendable, and expert help is only a phone call away. We have published many books with Momento over the years and enjoy the high quality of their product. I would highly recommend Momento to anyone. They are truly a great company that focuses on customer satisfaction, and are proud of their product. We look forward to our next photo book being published by them.
Outstanding quality and idiot proof to operate
I just received my 7th momento album and as usual I am delighted with the result. The quality is the best on the market. Having seen other people's albums from inferior companies, the quality is chalk and cheese. And the most amazing thing is that I take quite bad quality photos, yet in the album they look awesome! The product is so easy to use. I have no problem at all and yet I can't even load an app on my phone. It's that straightforward. Thank you for another wonderful product.
The phone service I experienced when I was in difficulties was faultless. Everyone was so pleasant and showed no irritation with my naivete in producing a photo book. This was my first attempt and the end result was superb - just how I imagined it. Great that you are compatible with Apple Mac. Thank you.
Perfect Way to Protect Your Memories!
I have completed 11 books with Momento - and they have all turned out amazing! From the smallest size to A3. The quality of the finished product is excellent. Awesome way to protect your memories - and I really enjoy putting these books together. Great help just a phone call away if needed.
Excellent quality, good software, fast delivery
So impressed with my 2 photobooks from Momento - 100 pages each, and every page is perfect. Great quality materials, good print quality, and nice touches with the choice of a matte cover and transparent covering page over the first photo. I enjoyed using the software to put it together too. The time and effort I put into arranging the photos was well worth it :)
A brilliant replacement for Mac OSX’s photobook software
I was looking for software to replace OSX’s built in software. After testing a number of products and cursing them ( even the one touted as having the same look and feel) I settled on Momento. Why? Sooooooo easy to use with minimal enhancement required unlike the others that produce washed out prints and are so difficult to use. Momento is incredibly intuitive to use. It is more expensive than others but I am a very keen amateur photographer, so quality and time are important to me. My books are coffee table standard thanks to Momento.
The BEST photobook printers!
I have had 2 photobooks printed by Momento and they have both been amazing. The first was photos from my wedding - these were professional shots and the book printed beautifully. Crisp and clear.
The second book was of my pregnancy and my baby's first 6 months - these were all iPhone photos so i had low expectations of the print quality but i was super happy with how they turned out!
I found the software really easy to use, and i love how it gives so many layout options, and options to add embellishments and 'themes' to the books.
Momento is not the cheapest out there - but you get what you pay for! I will never go anywhere else for photobooks!
Thank you momento!
My only choice for photobooks
I have used Momento for a decade and keep coming back for more … I am just about to start book #12! The software is so user friendly and results in quality, professional books every time.
Thanks Momento for a great product, along with your friendly and quick customer service.
Excellent product and customer service
I researched many Companies to make a very special 50th Brithday book....Momento was the only Australian company that showed professionalism all the way...
The actual product is superb, clean, bright, high quality and made with personal care (a rare thing!)...
The Customer Service is above anything I have seen with well trained staff always answering my (amateur) questions throughout the weeks, always polite and patient.
I know they are more than other cheaper alternatives but....to support Australian Local Business and have a Memory Sake to be so proud of is worth the extra cost.
My best friend (and everyone that has seen it) absolutely loved the book and I know it is a precious lifetime gift for her.
Can't go past Momento for quality
I have done a number of family biographies in recent years. Every now and again, I have looked around to see what production/printing options were available. It is possible, for example, to produce a document using Microsoft word and have it printed by local office service companies. But these books have meant a great deal to me, so I wanted to end up with a high quality, hardcover, bound book, with excellent reproduction of the photos and text. I have even consulted a professional printing house, and their advice mirrored the conclusion I had ...reached from my own research: for a very small print run, with a high quality product, you cannot go past Momento. Because my books have included a lot of text as well as a lot of photos, the preparation and alignment of the material, getting fonts and headings right etc was more demanding than your average photo book. But when you see the final product the effort is absolutely worthwhile. Momento is not the cheapest option around. I guess that is part of the price you pay for being able to deal with a company based in Australia. I place considerable value on the ability to give Momento a call and get very helpful technical advice, which I have done on numerous occasions. Similarly, it is easy to talk to Momento in the event that there is any problem with the final result. On one occasion, one of the books I received had a minor flaw in the rear cover: Momento reprinted the book, no problem. I was very impressed with the company's commitment to service and the quality of what they produce. I was not surprised to see recently that Momento had contributed to the 'Reflections' project, an ambitious effort by the Australian Institute of Professional Photography to photograph all of our living veterans of World War II. As well as being available to the Australian War Memorial in digital format, Momento has produced two beautifully presented volumes with archival quality, for the National Library of Australia to preserve a hard copy of all these portraits. Huge job, and very well done.
Questions & Answers
What would be a suitable dollar value for a gift voucher for n engagement photo album
Is it possible to add a shadow on photos once placed into photobook. Maybe Im looking in wrong place but dont seem to find any information in regards to shadowing
As far as I remember Momento does not have a "shadow" option for photos. Some of the frames (e.g. curling corners) will create a shadow. However you can use a dark or black background (drag to page and then select option to clear background - it will change to a square/rectangle which can then be edited) to create a shape a little larger than the size of the photo and then change its opacity and put the photo above that shape and then adjust the spacing to create the shadow offset you require. That will work.
When I attempt to download the cover backgrounds I get an error message saying that there ia problem with the internet or server connection: Http Code: 0x403. I am however connected to the internet and there does not appear to be other connection issues.
Libby J. and Geoff H.Momento
I'm sorry this isn't working for you.
Can you tell me a little more:
- is the issue with installing packages from the Updater panel on the right side of the software?
- and what is the name of the pack that you're trying to download?
Libby J. and Geoff H.Momento
I have just restarted the Updater server. Please let me know if you still have this issue. I've just tested it and it appears ok.
