Best Photo Album?

MrsD, on August 5, 2019 at 1:31 PM Posted in Married Life 0 20

We plan on ordering photo albums when we get our pictures back in a few weeks. What are your recommendations? What did they cost? Thank you!

    We ordered albums for our parents from artifact uprising. We paid about $350 per album but did not do a ton of pictures. We did about 15 pages.

    Thank you! I'll make a note of them now. I know we want to do a couple high quality ones for our parents, then one for us. Then maybe a few lower quality smaller ones for siblings or my MOH.

    Yeah we focused on high quality rather than a million pictures! They all really liked it. I’ve heard good things about Shutterfly and mpix as well.

    That makes sense! My mom would prefer quality over pictures and so would my father, so this is a great option for them. I think my fiance's parents would just prefer a million pictures so I'll look at shutterfly for them. Thanks again!

    We used Artifact Uprising for our guest book (engagement photos) and loved the quality. We'll be using them again for the wedding albums we're gifting our parents after the professional photos come back.

    I ordered this one from Etsy on super-sale for $108(normally $150+), I’m having it customized to say Our Fairytale on it.
    I’m also going to ask the seller if she’ll make mini albums for parents and grandparents after the wedding.

    There’s a lot of good sellers that excel at book making, making every page by hand or hand sewing leather! It’s worth a look, they come at every price point, I’ve definitely seen real leather albums for $$$, lots of heirloom quality pieces.

    We did parent albums for our parents from Shutterfly for Christmas and we were really happy with how they turned out. We got them during a 50% off sale so we spent about $70-$85 on each. We upgraded the paper to the lay flat pages and amount of pages in the book, and were glad we opted to do that. I think each album had somewhere between 30-40 pages. Our parents loved them!

    I made a photo book on Shutterfly... got a 12x12 book with hard photo cover, matte finish, dust jacket, 46 pages, 6-color printing, and layflat pages. I waited for a sale so we spent about $150, plus shipping. I'm super happy with it!

    There was a discussion about this the other day and here was my response:

    I highly recommend adoramapix.com for making the album. It allows you to play with custom designs and layouts and it is professional quality. There is a slight learning curve and it takes a lot of time to create, though. Mine was about 44 pages and cost around $300. I'm going to try to link my album here for your review.

    I've heard KISS is really good that's who we're using - For me it was an extra couple hundred but that's a discount through my photographer

    I have seen quite a few services on the Internet for creating custom albums. Personally, I chose for myself 3 companies that were suitable for me by reviews and prices. Friends ordered at the Milkbooks , I liked it. My wife’s parents ordered here , the quality is on top, but I did not like the design. I ordered a wedding album here , according to the recommendation of the boss. My wife is still happy and shows our album to all guests.
