Best photo book service online 2019
Smartphones have revolutionised photography in so many ways. But one of the negatives of having all your photos in your pocket is that they become disposable. When was the last time you memorialised an important family event or vacation of a lifetime photo in an album? Creating a photo book makes all that so much easier.
The best photo books allow you to distil your myriad snaps down to just the best and have them immortalised in print, all laid out in a beautiful album for you to enjoy with your family and friends.
On many photo book sites you can even design the product yourself, and they’re not only brilliant for immortalising your own memories but they make for fantastic gifts as well – poignant presents for Christmas, birthdays, christenings, Father’s Day, Mother’s Day and beyond. And the very best photo books are super simple to prepare, too.
Our favorite service in the US is Mixbook and we’ll explain why below. The great news is that the service is really embracing the whole Black Friday vibe at the moment and offering a 50% discount to new customers on its entire range of products:
Most of these sites are exceedingly easy use – allowing you to simply upload your favorite photos and lay them out in a way you feel matches the importance of your snaps, choose the size, shape, cover material and type of paper.
We’ve trawled photo book services across the US and the UK for important factors like price, speed, quality, range of options, software simplicity and more to give you our selection of the five best photo books on both sides of the Atlantic – there should be plenty of bargains to be had as Black Friday deals begin to appear, too.
