Since all photos became digital a few years back, photo printing became less and less. 4R printing will become things of the past.
Ever since I bought Canon A70 in 2004 and I sold off my Nikon SLR, printing of photos was not a must anymore. All stored in computer.
Now is the time for everybody to opt for photobook-sytle-printing. At this moment a few online companies offer photobook printing. A few that I was evaluating were photobook.com.my, photobooks.com.my and pixart.com.my
After evaluating, I proceeded to print Debossed Hardcover Books 15″ x 11″ with photobook.com.my . The size is slightly less than A3.
photobook.com.my 40% discount makes it cheaper than others. The matte finish is good and durable. I printed 28 extra pages than normal 40 pages. It was around RM240 inclusive postage. It should cost less than RM200 if no extra pages.
You have to download the software and design it. At this moment, the adding text feature is not very good. You cannot even add shadow to the text.
It took around 1.5 hour to submit/upload and less than a week to arrive at your door steps.
I’m quite satisfied with its service and quality but you must buy during promotion to get value for money deal.
