Senti-MENTAL: Picaboo Photo Book Review

I wrote this post two weeks ago about how much I love photo books, and a review of a new favorite company, Artifact Uprising. Today I have a review of my other long time favorite photo book site, Picaboo. They are really great quality, their book builder is so user friendly and they always have the most insane sales.

I have made a bunch of books using Picaboo, my three favorite are my wedding album, a cookbook for my mom and a book documenting my pregnancy (I just put all my preggo blog posts in a book). Here is a little review. (If you don't want to see all the pics of my life, there is a PRO/CONS list at the bottom of this post.

WEDDING ALBUM

It took me three years to finally make this and we got it as an anniversary gift to ourselves on our 3rd anni, because it was their Madison design, featuring thick lay flat pages, and bound in leather it was a little pricier but I love how it turned out and displaying it in our home.

^^^I know it doesn't look like it, but we both are in fact Caucasian
^^^Real leather binding, and thick lay-flat pages
 ^^^I love how you can extend one photo across multiple pages


PREGNANCY BOOK

This is their square 8x8 hardcover book and I just threw all my blogposts from when I was pregnant in it. So fun to look back on!


COOKBOOK

I made this cookbook for Mother's Day a few years ago for my mom. I tracked down all of our family's favorite recipes my mom made, she had them all over the place in differnt cookbooks and on random recipe cards or emails and put them all together in one book. I re-ordered a copy in this smaller 6x8 size for my little sister to have and it is the perfect size. Would be a great Christmas gift idea!


PROS

  • High quality photos and binding
  • So many different book type and style choices (hardcover, leather, linen, mini-books)
  • Very easy book-builder and all are saved online for later use and re-ordering
  • Very affordable and have great sales
  • So many layouts, fonts, color and design options and easy to add lots of text to pages, while other photobook sites are not.

CONS
  • Not as simple and clean minimilast design as Artifact Uprising
