The books are of high quality and after getting used to the software, it is easy to put a book toget
I am a new customer of the Photobook Club and I am very pleased with the results of the books I ordered. It didn't take me long to get used to the software, although I had to ring them a couple of times to explain a few issues. They are easy to talk to and very helpful, so far there isn't one issue they could not solve for me quickly.
Where I went over the top is by buying too many books at once and now have to spend a lot of time to get several books filled before the vouchers expire. Live and learn.
After Frustrated comes Satisfaction
Due to the company's takeover and growth I was left with a deadline and the advertised contact means were not functioning. Eventually I made contact and a solution was found.
I anticipate their communication problems going away but want to make it clear that their photobooks are EXCELLENT and I will continue using them .
Success is in the planning, not making it ad hoc
I am a happy with this production service and am making another book with them. The first time I used them the colour was not good but they replaced the books and the colour was great. I have had a few issues working out how to do things but found the service in Manila friendly and helpful. The software is very basic and not intuitive, but after a few attempts I found that writing the text in MS Word to spell check and editing photos in Photoshop before adding them makes me plan the book to the last detail. Success is in the planning, not makin...g it ad hoc. I showed the photo canvas prints to my boss and she ordered three of them on the spot. Now, I produce the book and then buy the vouchers and don't pay for express post. It niggles me a bit that I have to buy a draft copy because I cannot print from my computer if I am making multiple copies but I understand why this is so (why else would I use them). They make wonderful gifts for people who like to hold a book to look at photos, as digital images don't have the same appeal.
Books are of excellent quality
We have ordered from them before and their quality really is amazing. It was a 100 page hard cover book. We were very happy.
I have just given my husband a voucher for a photobook for his birthday and he is In the process of getting another book from them. There was a glitch with the voucher expiry date being recorded incorrectly in their system but they have extended it by a day so they he can try ordering again. We are hoping the next one will be just as good.
Excellent quality book
software is very large to download and we had problems with the voucher expiry date being incorrect on their system
Great product. Would recommend.
Received my first 100 page, hardcover photobook within 3 business days (submitted Sunday, received Wednesday). Great quality, easy to use software (once you get the hang of it.) The only drawback is the frames and background options are very limited but overall I was thrilled with the results and would highly recommend.
Easy to use
Limited backgrounds and frames
High quality photo books
We ordered two photo books and a calendar with them and we am very happy with the quality of the final product. We had a problem with the calendar template (wrong dates) that was fixed by the customer service in a reasonable time. The only bad aspect is the delivery time, it can take more than two weeks to receive the product. But if that is the price to pay for quality, I am happy with that.
Very quick service on receipt of book
The album we chose was hard covered - 100 pages - with around 500 photos. It was a lot of work sorting and rearranging the photos after they auto populated into the pre-set layout. In hindsight would have placed each photo individually, but the end result is still good. We chose not to put any text throughout the album as we didn't like/couldn't agree on the choice of fonts.
It was relativley easy to use and were surprised how quickly we received it.
Some of the photos were darker than they should have been. Would have been better if there were more page layout selections.
Good product. happy with results
The price was very reasonable, The softwear was easy to use. the product was delivered within a reasonable time fram, image quality was good. softwear indicated when a photo will be of poor quality so you can scale it down to compensate. i used quite a few scanned poor quality, old photos that still came out quite well.
even with mixed reviews i will try them again
software had layout limitations but could be manipulated to create different layouts not supplied
Good and reliable
I bought a voucher for an album with this company. For those who are familiar with PhotobookAustralia, this is the same program and I would imagine it's a related company. 123 cheese is another with the same or similar program. Only difference is in the page layouts, backgrunds available and that sort of thing. I found the program excellent,e asy to use. The quality of the paper was quite good. The printing was fine. The price was excellent. I got the album back quite quickly after ordering. It was a bargain really.
Good company to deal with.
