Update:Now this photo book company is called as Zno.If you are looking for Zno Photo book review,still this review is valid as both are the same companies.(Only a name change) This Zno Photo Book review also features Zno Layflat, 20 pages, 6×8, hard photo cover book.which I bought for $5 trial offer.
I really like making photo books for my son’s events. With my experiences so far, I found that photo books are durable and a quality way to keep photo memories in one place than creating an album with printed photos.
Earlier I created photo books with montage and Blurb. If you read my reviews on Montage Photo Book which I made for his 1st year memories and the Blurb Photo Book review for his first month, you’ll see how much I am into creating photo memories. I know most moms love to be creative with their kids.
Now my son is going to be 2 years old and for me it is so fast. I still remember his 1st birthday party. Suddenly when it is time for planning his 2nd birthday, I found I still haven’t created a photo album for his 1st Birthday.
Finally, I ended up creating a photo book for his first birthday with Artisan State. Actually I searched on Google for photo books and found Artisan State. I also found that they have a good offer these days. That is for new customers, they can order their first photo book for just $5.Quite a bargain price, right? If not, their usual price starts from $30.Another interesting thing is their shipping charges. It is only $5!
So, here is my Artisan State Photo Book Review which I only paid $10 including shipping charges.(Also read our Mixbook Photo Book Review)
(Disclaimer: This is not a free product for me. I paid $10 for both book and the shipping cost. This post is entirely to share my experience and about the offer with others who read this post)
The offer price applied to a Layflat, 20 pages, 6×8, hard photo cover book. There are other items also available for $5 trial offer such as Little Black Book and Wood Custom Frame.
For birthday photo album, 20 pages are just fine. Their software is easier to use and there are several page layout options. So, I could arrange photos in different styles.
In first two pages, I used 10 photos which show the details and decorations of the party. Actually I expected to see very small and unclear images in the photo book. But once I received this book, I found very clear images even those are very small.
Other than that, photos are very clear and neat. Layflat option makes it easy to go through the book. Each page is thick enough and seems these are durable.
Overall, I really like with this Photo book purchase. If you are looking for making a photo book, why don’t you try their $5 trial offer? (for a limited time period)
