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.
Ease of use
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 example, you have to pay an extra 5 euros to have the barcode removed from the album!
The print quality and ink flow are very good, and the lay-flat looks beautiful across a two-page spread. The delivery time was very quick. The only issue I had was that 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. I will look to see if it matches the quality of my current albums. If it’s good enough I can offer my clients alternative options when building a photo album.
Come to my next Wedding Fayre and check out the quality for yourself!
