AdoramaPix really cares about their customers! That shines through in all their communications and attention to detail. They also invite feedback once you have received your order because they want to make sure that you are one hundred percent happy. Being an international customer, I expected my order to take longer than if I lived in the USA but was pleasantly surprised that it only took two weeks from the day I ordered it. It was incredibly well-packaged—the box was three times the size of my little 6 x 6 inch book, so there was no way it could have been damaged in transit. Being a reviewer, I didn’t have to pay for my book or shipping, but for Australian customers who are counting their pennies, the shipping is quite pricey at $29.95.
The quality of the printed book is exceptional. The paper is really thick and lustrous, and the photos look absolutely amazing! I used several of the actions from Linda Sattgast’s class, Actions: Enhance Photos Fast, on all of my photos. That really made them pop in the printed book, and her black and white actions are to die for.
I also love the fact that there is no gutter in the middle of the book. The spine is designed so that the pages lay flat when you turn them.
AdoramaPix provides full-bleed blank pages for digiscrappers. I used the Pre-Constructed (Spreads) option, which means I created my double-page spread and uploaded it as one photo. That certainly saves time, and you can easily see what the two pages look like together. The only problem I encountered was a centering issue with the cover.
AdoramaPix provides different sized cover templates depending on how many pages are in your book. I used the correct cover template for the number of pages I had, but the front and back images were slightly off-center. This was more noticeable because they were on a white background. The wonderful people in customer service showed me how that could be overcome next time. I have suggested they add a couple of extra guides to the templates with the cross hairs directing you to the correct middle of both the front and back, because it’s not where one would assume, so it would be impossible to make an error. They didn’t think that would be a problem. The good thing about their cover templates is that you can create your own spine! Not many photo book companies give you that option, which is so important to digicrappers.
I can certainly recommend AdoramaPix for their product and service! I would definitely use them again!
