Photo Books by

Photo books are a bit of a passion with me, I much prefer them over standard photo albums any day. My quest to preserve all our memories via book was only heightened by the great photo disaster of 2011. Since I have taken on the task of uploading and making books for current and past photos, I have tried almost every online printing company imaginable. Each one does vary in quality and price.

I was recently introduced to, a 100% Canadian printing company. The company is owned and operated by The Printing House (TPH) and has been in business since 1961. Not only an online shop for personalized gift ideas, they also have over 70 locations across Canada.

For review, I made myself a 11″ X 8.5″ Landscape Photo Book, ‘Summer of 2011’. The process was simple, just upload photos, choose your album type and size – and drag them all in {of course you can preload the photos too, yet I like to arrange them as I wish}.

What I loved best about making my photo book at was that there are great options to frame and arrange your photos. For each photo I could change the color, re-size, crop, move around on the page, frame, overlap…. the options are really endless. I liked being able to highlight one special photo per page, and make it really stand out. Then, you can add text and stickers anywhere you’d like. A really fun {but fast} process.

When I received my book, I was also impressed. Each page had remarkable color with the pages themselves being sturdy. And, the shipping was incredibly fast as well, I’m talking just a few short days! Wow! The company is that speedy all the time, even during the holiday rush. With standard shipping, you have until 11:59pm on December 18th to order, so that you can have your items before the holidays. If you choose Express  shipping, orders can be placed right up to 11:59pm on December 20th.
