I shared a great deal from Collage.com a few weeks ago and promised a product review when my own books came.
Well, they came and I certainly was not disappointed! They are beautiful!
The larger book (11.5″x8″ hardcover) has a gorgeous, glossy cover with sharp, clear colors. The pages are thick and reasonably sturdy and the background that I chose from the several offered adds a very nice touch of “pizzaz” around the photos.
In doing the layout I was a little concerned that some of the pages that had 4 or 5 pictures would be too cluttered and the photos would be too small to see but they were just as clear and lovely as the full-page selections.
The smaller book (8″x6″ softcover) was nice as well. The front cover was similar to a glossy print that you would get from a photo developer. The pages were not quite as bright as the larger book but they were still very nice and not at all flimsy.
In the 8″x6″ version some of the photos really were a tad tiny. The quality of printing was still quite clear, they were just very small images. If I had it to do over I would probably only put 1 or 2 photos on each page.
The process of making the books couldn’t have been any simpler. The collage.com editing system allowed me to adjust the color and brightness of the photos, crop the images and add text within the photo or as a title on the page. It’s possible to put just one photo on a page or to add several, arranging them within different layouts. It didn’t take long at all!
In the end, I got a beautiful “scrapbook” without having to buy a bunch of special paper, stickers, adhesives, hole punchers and more. It was fairly quick, very easy and entirely mess-free.
