Founded in 1949, ScrapbookPictures.com is a third generation family-owned business. Throughout their history, they have been an industry leader in photo printing. In 1978 they were the first company to offer one-hour photo printing. In 2001, they were the first online photo company to allow film users to see their images online before they were printed, and only order and pay for the prints they wanted, sized and cropped the way they wanted. Their commitment is to continue providing the best photo quality prints available, with the best customer service. They have a very good FAQ page; all of my questions were easily answered there.
For even more information check out their pricing page of the site.
As far as finishes go, I personally always stick with Matte. I prefer to scrapbook with that finish as it doesn’t show any finger prints and photographs well. Scrapbook Pictures also offers tons of borders for your photos, giving it that nice edge and doesn’t restrict you to “matte” your photos when scrap booking. The layouts below show you some examples of the prints that I have used. I left these in large file format, click on them to see the prints larger.
Scrapbook Pictures also offers a Metallic finish to their prints. Let me just say WOW! I took a picture of a photo to show off the finish, but, sadly, cannot get it to show up well enough. Even scanning the photo did not work. I surfed around their sites for examples and didn’t find any. You can see that photo below. You are just going to have to trust me on this one and try it out!
I also recently tried out their 12×12 prints for Digital Scrapbook printing. Ali Edwards has long raved about them for their quality and pricing. Again, I was completely surprised by the quality of the prints. The prints turned out better than my computer screen first displayed them to be. They also arrived on my doorstep TWO days after ordering, wow!
Here are two of the layouts I printed with a matte finish, no color correction added. If you are going to print digital layouts always be sure they are 300dpi. Otherwise, they will not print at a 12×12 size. It was hard to photograph the photos. Hopefully you can get the feel of the product quality! Click to enhance the image.
There are a couple items they offer that in the very near future I want to try. They offer 12×12 photos books! You can use the full photo page books and upload your digital layouts to create a bound scrapbook of your layouts. Perfect for making an album, ordering and sending it right to the person it is for!
- Quality & Service, amazing!
- Price, 12×12 layouts are $1.54!
- Range of sizes for prints
- Unlimited storage
- Fast printing, turn around times vary. However I have never waited more then a few days.
- I wish they printed in ATC size (hint hint) and also offered wallets as singles.
- Easier upload format, it can be confusing how to manager your albums and upload
- There needs to be more examples on their website. So people can see how awesome they are!
