As I began browsing their numerous selections I was immediately drawn to their flush albums. Being able to turn the page and have it seamlessly lay flat almost sounded too good to be true. I chose to create one of their Premium Hudson Albums. Since this album was intended to grace my photography bookcase, I went with their square 8x8 album. For the cover I went with their Lux Leather in Charcoal Gray. They offer debossing, and while they do offer it in color foil I decided to go with no color. I chose their Luster paper for the images inside which their website recommends for first-time photo bookers. They do offer a variety of other choices, including a matte finish and textured finish.
Putting an album together can be quite time consuming and intimidating, but AdoramaPix’s website proved to be very user-friendly which was such a relief. I went with their free economy delivery, and was sent tracking information as soon as it shipped.
Upon receiving my album I was thoroughly impressed from their details in the packaging to the final product. I almost didn’t want to take it out of the box, and I may have put it back in the box after examining it because of the special feel it gave me. The album is just beautiful. The gorgeous leather and heaviness of it yields great value. When I opened it up the first thing I noted was the thickness and sturdiness of the pages. My self portraits were printed beautifully. I chose to do an all monochrome portfolio, and I have had issues in the past with my images losing detail when printed. This was not the case here at all. I want to note that I wanted a very minimalist design to my album so that the focus was on my images, but they do offer a wide variety of choices and details including layouts, color choices, rounded corners and decorative edging.
AdoramaPix was a great company to work with. Their customer service was quick to respond, and I even received an email checking in on my satisfaction after receiving my order. I believe it’s so very important to print and preserve your images. It’s such an authentic feeling to hold your artwork in your hands. Currently AdoramaPix is offering free shipping on all orders $49.00 and above, and they have been running holiday promotions. I’d definitely recommend heading over to their website and checking them out!
