It’s so important to not only capture your family’s memories but to actually print those photos so they’re not lost in a cloud somewhere. But how do you know which photo book is best? This photo book review of Photobook Canada / Photobook Worldwide tells you all that you need to know to be confident you’re making the best choice to print and keep your family’s memories alive.

I’ve always been an avid photo keeper, but it became that much more important to me after we started our family. One day our kids will be older and moved out of the house, and I want all of us to be able to look back on our photo books and remember all of the beautiful moments and how much love and fun we had together as a family. My kids are only 1.5 and 3, but I already feel like certain memories are slipping away. There’s only so much you brain can handle and hold onto when you’re in the throws of sleep deprivation and a heavy mental load, which is why we need to print photo books regularly and often.

Photobook Review

We have been using Photobook Canada / Photobook Worldwide for years, long before I’ve been lucky enough to work with them. They’re easy to create, great quality, and ship fast. Not only are they great for your own household photo books, but they make great gifts too. We’ve used them many times for Christmas presents and Mother’s Day gifts, and they’re a major hit with the grandparents! They run constant promotions so you’re always able to score a deal for whatever special moment that’s coming up, whether it’s holidays, or the so important year in review January season.

Photobooks and Photobook Canada / Photobook Worldwide

Photobook Worldwide services basically everywhere with off shoots for Photobook Canada, Photobook America, Photobook Singapore and so much more! Their processing is fast with your creations being shipped out within a matter of days, generally within 24 hours. They have so many options for memory keeping from traditional photo books to other products for your home and gifts. Some of their other items we’ve purchased for ourselves or as gifts include canvases, calendars, tablet cases, mugs, serving trays, magnets, and key chains. They seriously have it all, and every creation can be different using your own designs or their templates.

Make Your Own Photobook

Desktop

You can easily create photo books using your desktop and all of the files you have on your computer. They have several templates for all of their products which helps you level things up when you aren’t necessarily the most gifted when it comes to crafty things like this. If craftiness is your forte you can have full control of all of the positioning and sizing, and can add clip art and text.

The desktop app is really easy to navigate with drag and drop commands and an overall intuitive interface. I like that you can upload all of your photos from your computer, Facebook, or Google Photos, then play around with how you want them to look with your final photo book. You’re also able to save your projects so you can continue to chip away at it and make edits until you’re over the moon happy about the final product.

App

The Photobook app is new and available on Apple or Android devices. It has similar similar navigation with drag and drop abilities, but I found it a little less intuitive than desktop, and had fewer customization options. It’s great if you don’t have a desktop computer and want something simple using their templates, but if you’re wanting to dive deeper into customizations, or plan on playing around with things to see which photos you actually want to include and how you want it laid out, then I recommend using the desktop version.

Similar to the desktop version you can access photos from your phone, Facebook, Google Photos, and one bonus is that you can access Instagram photos too! Which makes it a super easy and fun way to create photo books from your favourite Instagram pictures!

Photobook Options

Photobook Sizes

One thing I absolutely love about Photobook is that they have so many options, and even though there’s lots of options, it’s still easy to figure out and create a photo book you absolutely love. There are a ton of different sizes from their super simple Lil’ Photobooks as small as 4″ x 4″ which are great for capturing one small event or photoshoot, all the way to their gorgeous hard cover photobooks that can be created all the way up to 18″ x 12″.

Photobook Covers

They also have many options for covers to give you the look and feel you’re going for. You can get soft covers and hard covers, or go for gold with their debossed covers or deluxe covers. My personal favourite is the image wrap hard cover which wraps your favourite image all the way around the cover giving it a show-stopping look.

Photo Book Binding

Photobook has three options when it comes to binding. All of them are beautiful, but a few upgrades can really add that wow factor. Perfect binding is just that, it’s perfect for creating a lovely photo book. Premium layflat binding has become our go to because it lays flat so you don’t miss out on any little bit of the images. Flush mount binding is your next step up with a very strong flay lay style binding.

Final Thoughts

Photobook Canada / Photobook Worldwide is the go to place for creating beautiful photo books and other photo products for your family. They have many options available for different products and to help you customize your project. Whether or not you love creating these kinds of things, they make it easy by providing plug and play layouts that can be altered to suit your tastes. They have great customer service, fast shipping, and quality products. I couldn’t recommend Photobook more. As I’ve said, we’ve used them for years, and will continue to use them for all of our photo book and photo gift needs.
