Nowadays we all use Digital cameras or Mobile phone sot take most of our family Photos on. How many of us actually print them off? I can honestly put my hands up and say i have hundreds of precious photos saved on my memory cards but have never had any of them printed. I never really thought about it, but i do miss having some nice photographs in the house. I was given the opportunity to have a look at a site that printed them for you and delivered them in a whole range of ways. It sounded very exciting so i had to check it out.
Snapfish are an online company that Ive heard of but never really paid much notice to. I'm so glad that i did finally have a look though. Their Prices are very reasonable and their site is so easy to use. I say that because I managed it! When first visiting the site you get a very friendly,brightly designed - attractive joining screen like shown on the left. It's quick and easy to join up and doesn't require a lot of information from you.
There are a wide variety of products to choose from: Calenders and Key rings. Photo Magnets and Mugs. Mouse mats and Jigsaw puzzles. Lots of perfect gifts for any occasion. One of their most popular products is their Photo Books which range from just £2.99 up to £19.99 I was given the opportunity to make my own Family Photo book in exchange for sharing how i got on with the process
Making a photo book was really easy. You simply click the Upload button and add all the photos that you want to include. You can add more than you need in fact, they store nicely in separate folders so that you can always find them quickly when you need them. I made two folders, My Family and My Family Part 2 - Not very original i know but i like to keep things simple lol
Once your photos are uploaded you simply click on the type of Photo book that you would like and click Go x It adds all the photos you have selected into the book,spreading them neatly over the pages ready for you to view. You can then choose your design and front cover and have a play with all the different margins,spacing, colour options and many other settings. You can make your Photo book to suit your own tastes.
Once your happy with your product you fill out the easy form to buy.It then gets made up withing 3 to 5 working days and posted out to you at home.Mine was delivered in just under a week which is pretty good really seeing as someone had to make my book and do it all by hand.
I went for the Dark Blue cover with classic Black & White pages.I thought I'd keep it all nice and simple and easy on the eye. The Book is fab,Great hard back covers with good quality pages. Beautiful glossy pictures and very well put together. I have took a few pics of my finished Photo book but as i took them on my IPad they quality of my Photos don't quite do them justice. My Book is top followed by a few sneak peaks of my pages.
I really enjoyed using SnapFish and am very pleased with my finished product. The Photo book i made was £19.99 but worth every penny. For less than an hours uploading and messing on the site and just £20 i now have a Beautiful Family Photo album that i can treasure Forever!
SnapFish get a fab 5 out of 5 from me. Easy and simple to use. Great prices and a Great range of products and gift ideas. I know where I'll be shopping this Christmas!
