A few weeks ago I blogged about a great online site that lets you preserve your family's best memories in a photo book. AdoramaPix lets you create high quality photo prints and photo books, supervised by professionals who watch over every photo. AdoramaPix has been serving the needs of the photographic community for over a decade. and now they have an online site and app for the everyday consumer who wants great quality photo products at reasonable prices.
Prices start at just $15.40 for a small photo book (6x4.5). The base prices for each size include 10 pages, and extra 2-page spreads start at $1.08 for each additional 2 pages. Shipping over $39 is free, so you can combine multiple photo book orders to save money. Their lay-flat design lets you see the whole page, without any gaps or seams to mar your photos.
I was able to try out AdoramaPix's online photo book software to create a few photo books for myself, and now that they've arrived, I'm so happy about the quality that I could do a little dance! The photo books are absolutely gorgeous, and there were so easy to make.
AdoramaPix photo books come in a variety of sizes. My personal favorites are the 8x12 books (perfect for your gorgeous photo spreads) and the 8x8 square books (perfect for your Instagram photos!).
I've reviewed a number of other photo book sites, and I must say that I like the layout options of AdoramaPix best of all. For those of you who aren't into stickers and scrapbooky-type layouts, AdoramaPix has quite a few layouts that have photos only. This was probably the least amount of time I have ever taken to create a photo book, simply because I found the perfect layout right away.
Of course, you can still customize your layout any way you want, by adding text, stickers (check out the shell stickers in the layout below!), and backgrounds. If you don't like any of the layouts AdoramaPix provides, you can change their layouts or create your own. It helps to be familiar with scrapbooking software, otherwise it might take you a bit of time to become familiar with the process. You can save your work and come back to it at any time, and you can preview your work at any time.
The cover is fully customizable. You can choose from any number of backgrounds, from solid colors to ombre to textures (like the grass mat weave below) and more. You can select from a number of photo layouts (note, this does not apply to leather covers), or you can choose to have no photos at all. You can also add text to the cover and the spine.
You can also customize the outer back cover with photos and text.
Adding a white page "spread" to the inner front and back covers costs an extra $2, but they will waive the charge if you consent to having the AdoramaPix logo printed on the inner back cover of your photo book. Totally worth it, if you ask me -- besides, people who look at your photo books are sure to ask you where you made it, so you can direct them to the inner back cover to see the AdoramaPix logo!
