Thanks to AdoramaPix I was able to print out a gorgeous book of my vacation pictures in order to facilitate this review. I’m terrible about getting pictures printed. The “free” services are OK, but the print quality is very low and the paper they use is chintzy at best. Honestly, when I set up my vacation pictures book on AdoramaPix I was expecting pages which were akin to a high end magazine only slightly thicker. What I received blew me away!
The colors on my 8″x8″ – 38 page vacation collage book were bright and beautiful and the pages thick, sturdy and did not bend at all. The printing was amazing! The AdoramaPix team really brought my precious family road trip pictures to an unexpected level of vibrance. I was able to include captions and narrative where I wanted it to explain where we were and what had happened there. Pictures of mountains and streams are beautiful, but when you have a story to share with them it brings the whole thing to life. That’s not something you can do with a simple album, stack of pictures or trying to huddle around your smartphone or tablet screen. It doesn’t matter how many online albums I have there is something uniquely special about being able to hold the images in your hand and leaf through them at your leisure.
My vacation picture book covered our 6000 mile trip cross country to 9 national parks, 1 national memorial and 1 national monument. It was our first family vacation ever and I’m so glad I had the opportunity to experience getting a picture book printed through AdoramaPix. Last year a teacher in my girls’ school whose family had taken a similar trip before shared with me the book she printed through a different service. The pages were thinner and the print quality was not as good. Also, the color of the template with the text made the paragraphs somewhat difficult to read. My plan was to use this same service to get our first picture book done. I’m so glad I didn’t. AdoramaPix delivered ultra high quality printing in less than the time quoted to finish the book.
After I showed the book to my mom she had me start helping her upload pictures of her family so she could get several books printed for her siblings. I have a feeling they are going to be pleased with the thoughtful and well done gift.
