Photo Book Reviews

From pixel to print, your story matters

Anyone else create photobooks from their trips? I love having these to look back on. One is locked away for Archie to have when he is grown up!


Creating a photo book was a breeze with lots of ccustomization options available. The high-quality finish of the book exceeded my expectations. I would definitely recommend it!


Often, we take lots of pics and at the end, we put them in a laptop or a hard disk and we never look at them again! So we decided to make photo books of all our travels.


I made a 40-page photo book for my grandma. Printerpix made the creation process extra meaningful, easy and fun. Now she has a lifetime of memories to cherish.
