One evening I repeatedly saw an advert appearing on Facebook from Saal looking for photographers to receive a discounted photobook in return for an honest review of the product.
I applied to be a reviewer and was quickly accepted. Once the software was installed, I decided to choose a different album orientation to what I would usually offer, by building a photobook that sits in portrait rather than landscape.
The software was fairly easy to use although the software often chose where I wanted to drag and drop the images when attempting to make small adjustments. I didn't get into all of the other features it offered as I wanted to see the quality of the photobook before I considered investing more time into the design. Upon arrival, I was impressed with the print quality and finishing of the product.
The quality of the paper felt premium and the whole album had a nice weight to it. The only negatives of this product and Saal are the extras you have to pay for such as paying an extra 5 euros just to have the barcode removed from the back of the album!
The print quality and ink flow is very good, and the layflat looks beautiful across a two page spread. The delivery time was very quick and the only day occurred when their system for accepting Paypal failed but they did communicate with me swiftly and responded to my inquiries in a timely manner.
I plan to test the quality of leather and simple bound finishes in a classic landscape album too with Saal in the near future to see if it matches the quality of my current albums so that I can offer my clients alternative options when building a photo album.
I'll be presenting the Saal Digital photobooks at my Wedding Fayres so pop by to check out the quality for yourself!
