We submitted a photo book for review in the June issue of Digital Photo Magazine, and were delighted to get the silver award. We only missed out on top spot because the journalist felt that our prices were a little high for the readership of that magazine, but handbuilt quality costs.  We firmly believe that paying a little extra for superior quality and unique features, like a personalised cover, is worth it. We were chuffed.

Here are some things said about the Contrado Deluxe Photo Book:
"This exclusive product has shunned template software and instead asks that you resize your prints and number them in page order. Although this may seem limiting, it actually gives more freedom as you build your layout in photoshop. The finished result is impressive; the cloth finish hard cover features your selected image on the front and rear, giving it a very personalised look. Inside the images are well-printed and the book itself is stitch bound and feels well made. This is a pricey option, but worth it when presentation really matters...the high quality of the Contrado album stands out, from the printed cloth cover to the high quality paper."

Recipient was blown away by the photo book - as were all his friends & family. So lovely to be able to speak to a real person with queries before and after ordering.

  • My Bags of Love photobook was a much larger project than I had thought. I have to say that the customer support and online help were exceptional. They helped me piece together the final package I now have. All 20 pages of it! Thank you for rushing it through for me. I had it back perfectly on time and it really looks fantastic. I won't be doing such s major project for some time but when I do, I will be getting on touch again.
