First I must explain a bad experience with another company that led me to have a very good experience with MyPhotoGraphics.
I placed an order for a photobook with another company - a UK high street company - that could not be delivered in time. I was extremely disappointed by that company's misleading website - I didn't know there was no rapid delivery time until after I had placed the order - and appallingly poor customer service. Beware of any provider that uses CEWE photobooks - CEWE are not subcontractors to the UK firm (several organisations in the UK use them), they work for CEWE as introductory resellers. Everything happens automatically and slowly in Germany. Complaining in the UK achieves nothing.
So I searched for "fastest photobook delivery", and found MyReproGraphics - and they have been fantastic. The software was easy to use, checking the images was straightforward, and when I phoned to just check that I would definitely be able to get the book on time, I was reassured.
After I uploaded my images, I got a phonecall - they were just wanting to check I was happy with the resolution of the cover image I had uploaded (after checking - I was happy). They were very good, both professional and understanding. By coincidence I was near their office that day, and was able to go in to be even further reassured.
So this meant that the order was confirmed on a Thursday, and I have just received the book before 0900 on the Monday. Delivery has been fantastically fast - and I have just checked through the book, it is perfect.
I uploaded a 70th birthday photo album for my Mum on Wednesday and it arrived Thursday! I did the same for my Dad and again the service was excellent - the product is beautiful and everyone was so pleased with the finished article!!! Thank you MyPhotoGrapics!!!
I've made a few photo books over the last few years and really think that this one is the best. It's so easy to use! The service is also ridiculously fast - especially compared to other companies. I placed my order on Sunday evening (a little later than I should have, given that the birthday was on Tuesday!), paid for courier delivery and wrote to Alison in customer service explaining that I needed the book asap, and was thrilled to receive my photo book less than 48 hours after placing the order, in time for the birthday. It's brilliant quality and the recipient (and the rest of the family) love it. I'll definitely be using MyPhotographics again and again.
In short - Very quick printing & delivery, fantastic product - the faux leather cover looks better than expected, the pages are thick and print quality is excellent. Excellent customer service - Alison assisted me to make sure my deadline was met and that I uploaded the book ok.
I ordered 5 A4 Portrait Layflat books with additional pages. I rang up MyPhotoGraphics on the Tuesday morning to let them know that I was going to put through an order later that day of which I needed at least 1 copy of the book by Friday for my father's wake on the Monday. I asked if it was possible to meet that deadline and a nice lady called Alison assured me that it should be ok if I chose the courier delivery option so it could be tracked. She made sure that I didn't need the much more expensive Saturday delivery option. I put my order in around 3pm on the Tuesday (just had to ring up once as my computer crashed whilst uploading the book after payment) and Alison talked me through uploading the book again. On the Thursday I received a text from the delivery company letting me know the delivery time on the Friday am and an email from the company saying that my book had been dispatched - perfect! On the Friday the other 4 books were dispatched and delivered fist thing on Monday. The main reason I chose this company was for the layflat design and speed of printing due to my tight deadline. They excelled and now I think I'll get my wedding album through this company (been meaning to do it for 3.5 years!) as I was so impressed by the service and quality of the product. Many thanks.
I've got a bunch of photos, zero artistic skill and a couple of hours to complete - it couldnt have been easier! I tried two other photo book companies before finding these guys - and gave up twice due to the complicated software and "so called" wizards that placed photos upside down and overlapping concealing faces - rubbish!! And when i ordered it - i got email confirmation and a fab photobook a couple of days later! Well done guys!
The finished product was better than anticipated with a very fast door to door delivery. The software was easy to use and I will certainly use this service again. I already have another project in mind.
Can't recommend this company enough. Software was easy to download and simple to use. After uploading photographs I received my book within 48 hrs. Couldn't find any other website to turn around as quick and I needed this in a hurry. Was delighted with the result and would definately use them again.
Quick and easy to use for photobook creation. Amazing next day delivery (I do live in the same city though so this may not apply to everyone!). Really impressed with the quality of the finished product.
I used the services of MyPhotographics to produce an album of wedding photographs for a friend. Quality was very good despite images supplied not being the highest resolution. Excellent service and prompt delivery .
My only issue is that it took me quite a long time to find this excellent company on the web. I hope they will recognise the benefits of investing in their web presence so they feature more prominently on Google. It seems to be the only company that delivers personalised calendars within two days so they have a great selling point. Just need to increase their profile.
I had my own wedding photographs and unfortunately had a bad experience with photographer on the day which made me have to get wedding pictures re taken on a different date. I was heartbroken. My photographics made making my own album of the day so easy to combine to two days pictures as one and I can't wait to see the results! Highly recommended in every department and Allison for her quick customer service. I will definitely be back time and time again
Both of my Photobooks arrived - I can also now vouch for myphotographics (ordered on 31st Dec, delivered 8th Jan, so 5 working day turn around). Print quality is good, Paper is good quality, software was pretty good, allowed me to save my own layouts. Covers are fake leather and HAVE to have a square window in the front - otherwise you can opt for a more expensive printed cover. I would be happy to give this photobook to a client, colour is virtually identical to my profiled monitors. Great experience.
My 4 photobooks arrived in time for Christmas, a very fast turnaround. The quality of the books is excellent and the courier service was well worth the extra money. The whole service gets my full recommendation!
I forgot to hit the continue button to upload my pictures and was prompted with a friendly reminder that I needed to upload the photos, the team pulled out all the stops to get me my order within a day after I had correctly uploaded the files. Well in time for Xmas.
