Making photobook with Photobox

Saturday, September 26, 2015


The photobook of our honeymoon arrived yesterday and I'm really pleased with it! I wanted to get our photos printed so that we had physical copies and a photobook seemed the perfect solution. You can't snuggle up on the sofa and leaf through the pages of a computer can you?


I used Photobox to put it together and the whole process was really easy. I took advantage of one of their offer codes and saved 60% (if memory serves), since I registered I often receive emails with more offers so if you are looking to make one, it's worth holding out for a good deal. I chose an A4 Classic Collage photobook so that I could have a little display of photos on the front.

To keep it simple (for me) I uploaded the photos a day at a time and created a number of spreads for each day, before uploading the photos from the next day. I couldn't have two days on one spread - oh hell no! (but maybe that's just me?).

I could switch around the layout, change the size of the picture frames, and move images around with ease. It took a little while to get my head around how it worked but it's very user friendly and the whole thing only took me a few hours.

I was able to save the book as I went along, I could've gone back to it and finished it off another day if I'd wanted to. This would be a great way to document an on-going project or make a year book (which I have to say I really like the idea of).


The only one little niggle is that I had to pay (£5 something) not to have their logo printed on the last page of the book, which I think it a bit cheeky. If I'm advertising their brand they should be paying me!

That said, the book arrived in good time, I was updated via email throughout the whole process and it arrived in good condition. It's good quality and I love it. It's the perfect keepsake of your honeymoon.


Now I just have to set to work on a book for our wedding, which is going to be hard as we have so many lovely photos, I want to include them all, even though some of them are almost identical.

Do you get your photos printed or are they all stored digitally?
