Finally ... I Can Tell You~!

Yesterday was my daughters 27th birthday. It was great to go down and see her and her fiance. His birthday is in November too so one of the things I gave to both of them was a Digital Photo Book I had done of their engagement pictures. I ordered it from Artscow and received it over a month ago and was super happy with the quality of it. But ... I couldn't talk about it on here because it was a surprise. Well, now I can talk about it and show you what a great book Artscow printed for me.

First of all I was ordering a 12x12 inch hard cover book that has 30 pages. Artscow also has 8x8 inch books etc. You can order books that have 20,30,40 pages etc. You also design the front and back covers of this book and even the spine if you like.

So here is the cover I created;
(Click on any picture to see a little larger)

I'm obviously not going to post pictures of all 30 pages but here are few of the pages to show you the great colours and give you an idea of how nice the books are.

And here is the back of the book.

I am very happy with the quality of this book and Artscow has better prices then I've seen anywhere. They have tons of promotions on all the time and I ordered it when they had free shipping. (They ship anywhere in the world!) It does come from Hong Kong and I did wait almost 3 weeks for it to get to Canada but it was worth the wait! I believe its only the photo books that take long to ship because of the many pages. But since then I have ordered personalized playing cards and key chains and only waited just over a week for them. They were really nice too.

They loved it and my daughter couldn't stop looking at it. A gift from the heart. ♥

I have created a page you can go to here to see all the details and my tips and tricks for creating a fabulous digital photo book at Artscow.

I would HIGHLY recommend Artscow for all your digital printing ... you really should go see all they have to offer~!
