Great Results for 8 Books + Holiday Cards

by Pamela McCarthy, 13 Jun 2023 (20:10 UTC)
I have made eight photo albums with PrestoPhoto using the Apple interface and have hade great results. Five were hardcover and ranged from 40 to 70 pages; three were softcover and in the vicinity of 20 pages. The books are sturdy, with secure bindings, even trim, and consistent printing. Generally the photos print a bit darker than they appear on my screen, so I'd recommend lightening up any images you have that are dark to begin with. Customer service is superb, always going the extra mile (e.g., catching a project before it goes into production to correct a mistake I've made and noticed after pressing "BUY."). We've also had good results with holiday cards, though with the same caveat about lightening anything that is tending toward dark.

I just wanted to mention that I had fabulous results with PrestoPhoto. I ordered a reprint from a former Apple Books PhotoBook that I had made, and it was just as high quality as when Apple did the original more than 10 years ago. The pages were uniform, the spine and binding were excellent. No complaints. I am using them again currently for a photo book created on Pages.

Slip Cases?

I think a great accessory product you could sell for hardcover books is slip cases.
They are difficult to find; usually custom.
Having a slip cover is great for interviews to protect the book from wear and the elements (obviously) and to prevent "perusal" before an actual interview or meeting.

Hi, thanks for answering! I assume you mean a "slip case" (like the pic below) and not a dust jacket. Slip cases are really nice, and convenient for select uses. However they are also really expensive... upwards of $10 even when ordering in a reasonable bulk quantity. There is also the thickness and sizing issue, so we'd need to stock multiple sizes.

Hi again!
Personally, after spending good money for a top quality portfolio, I think $10 is an incredible value. I would happily pay significantly more than that for the protection and professionalism that a slip cover would provide.
I have a 12x12 portfolio. I found that record albums are about 12 1/4" x 12 1/4". I obtained a black slip cover meant to hold 6 or so records in a box set.

Currently my photos are in a Lightroom Catalog. How can I upload them to your App to create a book? Would I be better off uploading from Drop Box? Thanks

paper options

by Kathryn Geismar, 23 Aug 2022 (22:22 UTC)
Hi — I received your paper swatches and would like to use the premium matte paper for an 8x10 portrait, softcover photo book. It looks like just premium paper with a slight gloss is offered. Is there a way for me to choose the paper that I would like? Thanks. Kathryn
