The design app is easy and fun to use. The finished products are very professional and of high quality. The service is great and I have never had any problems. I love the voucher system - great value for money - and you can always extend the voucher for a small fee if you run out of time.
excellent value for money
very pleased with my 2 photobooks and 2 calendars. Staff were very helpful when I had queries and I was pleased with all the scrapbooking objects available to decorate my books. The reason I didn't give them 5 stars was because there was no way to decorate the calendars for that personal touch alongside the photos. Scrapbooking choices for the calendars would have been great.
I have used this company for a number of years, largely because they are cheap rather than anything else.
However having spent a considerable amount of time putting together our last two projects, I was disappointed to learn that before completing the order they were deleted from the server.
I was given a short period of notice of the intention to delete however despite getting a marketing email from them virtually everyday announcing the latest sale offer (the secrets out guys - always on sale), the email regarding something as important a...s this had gone to spam. Basically we will use up the two vouchers that we had purchased for these projects but then find another provider. They clearly have no idea of how much time it takes to put these projects together properly. Find someone better.
Great customer service
Great photo book quality and price.creating Photobook platform is also easy to use and not an issue at all for. Also great customer service when I had to reorder another Photobook.
Thanks Photobook Club for excellent service again
I ordered a poster sized canvas which I needed in a specific size. The order was delivered in exact size and great quality. Once again Photobookclub have delivered the goods. Thanks to the team.
Photobooks & Canvas Prints
It is an easy process to put your photos together in an album. I recently ordered a number of canvas prints and had multiple vouchers to combine and was not sure how to do it. My query was answered promptly. The quality of the books and prints is excellent.
The Photo Book Club
I had my photo book reprinted due to ink spots on two pages. Not a problem for them to reprint the book.
On receiving the reprinted book unfortunately it was damaged in transit and they very kindly reprinted book again. I would highly recommend The Photo Book Club
I have ordered the magnetic fridge photos before and I love them. I have my memories in front of me everyday and that’s priceless. Highly recommend, easy process, totally worthwhile.
I've been using Photobook Club to produce my photobooks for a few years now and love the quality of the end product. I do family, holiday travel ones and some for gifts for friends. Memories are preserved so well in these books. The last year or so I have been doing layflat photobooks and they are just great. Any time I ring with questions they are answered to my satisfaction. Thanks to all the crew at the Photobook Club.
Loving my photobooks
What a wonderful job PhotobookClub has done with my 100 page Family History and 60 page travel books I have completed to date. I am thrilled with both the production and service and would certainly recommend them.

100th Birthday Memory Book for My Mum
We created a very special 100th Birthday book for my Mum. Many of the photos were old black and whites, yet they looked great in the book. It was her favourite gift, and it bought back many happy memories for her. The finished product was much better than we envisaged, and it arrived in plenty of time. As I am 73 and not computer savvy, our son initially had to help us with the setup, but then we found it quite simple to complete. We were so thrilled with how great it looked, and it was very affordable. Thank you so much for your excellent product.
Love this company works. well done I your job. I love the quality. It has been 4 years I am ordering all my life memories to this company and they really made my satisfaction comes true.
Perfect travel books
I have been very happy with the Photobook Club completing several photobooks of our travels. The software is easy to use and the quality and price is excellent. Would highly recommend them
Great quality & colours
The photo canvases are fabulous, excellent quality, vivid colours, well made & prompt delivery. I have just had a few big ones (75x100) done & it looks amazing against my white wall. Prices are good too, although website a bit confusing if you're a first-timer.
Deceiving website, not reliable
I purchased double deal voucher within Queens birthday weekend, but when I tried to redeem they say its not double deal. They agreed that product was on double deal on that period, but said I got single product. I cant prove as I didn't get any screenshot, but I know what I bought and double deal mentioned in there. Also why would I buy single product when I can buy two for the same price, does not make any sense to me.
Update: After they resolve my voucher issue, I ordered my canvas prints a week ago and I received them today, so good production/delivery time. Im impressed with the quality, great colours. I have done few canvas prints with BigW before and for me these are better than BigW, overall print quality is great for the price.
Questions & Answers
Can I make one of your photobooks using an Apple Ipad
I have never used my iPad so not sure. As long as you can download the software on your iPad you should be able to do it.
Not sure, we used a computer
You can use the iPad to create a photobook on the online designer. It may be a little slower though. We always recommend using a PC when available but yes the Ipad should be fine.
Hi I trying to download on to an Apple laptop.. it will not allow me is there something extra you need to do .. it keeps saying it is a security risk..
Thank you Barbara
Hi Barbara, Apple are ultra cautious with software they allow onto their systems and so you may often get messages warning you of potential risks with software that has not been specifically approved by Apple themselves. I would imagine it costs a fair bit to have Apple verify your product and so many organisations who are not "selling" their software may not be able to justify the cost.
There should be no difference in running the Photobook Club software on either a laptop or desktop machine (iPads are of course a whole new ballgame). I run the Photobook Club software very successfully on my iMac and I have friends who run it on their MacBooks.
Usually if your MacBook is warning you of potentially risky / non vetted software you will be given the option to continue with the installation by disabling the "warning system" for a one off instal. Obviously beyond that point you've crossed the safety barrier! I would never, and I do mean NEVER instal anything sent to me by an organisation I didn't know, but given that I know who Photobook Club are and I have checked I'm on the correct website before downloading, I had no hesitation going ahead. Good luck and many happy Photobooks.
Thank you for getting back to me.. even if I try and ignore it won’t let me load.. I thought that there might be something extra I needed to do... all my friends, have loaded it, from a photo book group, but none of them have macs... batbara
Hi this is the problem... . when you register and click download, you aren’t prompted to download the file, on chrome and safari.
It just goes back to the registration page with no option to download the file
Thank you Barbara
Can you make a photo book A4 Portrid book with text and images, and what does it cost per page?
Hello Chezza, yes we do have an A4 Portrait Photobook which can be ordered as a Hardcover or Softcover. You can design the book however you like with as much text and images as you wish. We currently have a 20 page Hardcover A4 Portrait book on sale for $29. You can purchase a prepaid voucher which is valid for 6 months here - https://www.photobookshop.com.au/voucher
Not a problem creating a Portrait orientation Photobook including whatever you like in the form of photos and text (Import Maps, Greetings cards, certificates, etc too if you so wish). Photobook Club seem to limit the portrait size book to 20 pages, however for very little more you can produce a 30 x30cm book with many more pages - for example a 120 page hardcover is only $50 at present and that includes delivery. Bear in mind you choose the shape of the photo you put on the page, so if 3x2 is your favourite ratio so be it - but 4x3 or square are just as valid. Live it up!
If you remember the cost of film photography that is nothing but awesome! So between the "official Photobook Club response at $1.45 a page and mine at less than 50c a page you have a myriad of choices.
The Photobook Club/Photobook Shop downloadable software is a little "clunky" but it does enable you to produce great Photobooks once you get the hang of it- especially if you "pre-prepare" your images in something like Lightroom, Affinity, etc
Cheers and I hope that helps, Mike
