AdormaPix Has Photo Books!!

5 cover styles, 18 sizes, 1, 713 designs and 6 paper types!
Yeah...Adormapix gives you choices!
I have used AdoramaPix before for metal prints (which I love), but I haven't tried their service yet for photo books. Well...now I have, and I love them!! I'm a little picky about my photo books. I try most every service that comes out, and honestly only two of them have made me happy. Now there are three companies who have the quality I am looking for, and AdormaPix is definitely one of them. As an extra added touch, and since one of these was a gift, I ordered a gift box too. You can see it in the background. A simple brown box with a white elastic bow (the book had tissue paper over it while on the inside). 

As for the book itself, I could have put a title on the front, where you see that white strip, but I purposely did not (inside 'what if no books had titles' joke with the kiddo). 




I did put the season and year on the spine of the book, so my son can always know how old he was at the point and time it was made. You can select from any number of font styles and sizes for any writing you do in and on the book. And if you did put a Title on the front, you could stretch it from front to back too, if you so desired. I think that was my favorite title option!


The layouts allow you to choose the number of pictures you would like. Above I have one photo on an entire page. You can also get one photo stretched out across both open pages (flat and seamless) without an upgrade charge!! What?? Oh yes, I do love that feature, AdormaPix!


You can choose multiple photos on a page...


as little or as many as you need to tell your photo story. The photos are printed on photo paper, not the standard office paper used in most books. Yet another amazing photo book feature from AdormaPix.


There are many different patterns and designs you can choose too (1,714 designs to choose from, in fact!). In the photo above you can see one of the downward diagonals I chose, using three pictures. This whole photo book was self-created, meaning I put photos where I wanted, and selected the way I wanted them displayed all throughout the book.


The second book I made was similar but had a theme all throughout.


You can see the difference right away with the chunky blue line going right through the middle.


Again though, you could choose as many photos as you wanted and you could use patterns too. Here I used a flower pattern and omitted the blue background. Yep, you could deviate from theme where you felt fit. In fact, I did that on a couple of the pages, including the one just before the flower page...and you can see that below.


I like that you could use a collage with both large and smaller pictures because some pictures you really do want to be bigger than others.


It was fun to make these two books, and my favorite thing about them is that they are top-notch in photo quality. My son loves his, and my good friend (ex-sister-in-law...kids' aunt...I'm not sure what to call her these days, ha!) loved hers too. :)

Now let me tell you about the choices you have with an Adoramapix photo book:

  • 5 cover styles
  • 18 sizes 
  • 1,714 designs
  • 6 paper types

That's a lot, I know. I love that there are so many choices. That means there is going to be something for everyone to enjoyo. These would be a great way to showcase some of your summer functions, like I've done in the photo books above. They'd also be fun to make for back-to-school (for any age including college), birthdays, holidays, or simply just-because.

Now that would be neat to have indeed. I think one would need photos of more than cats and dogs though haha

Sandee said...

Kind of like the old photo albums, but way better. Cool.

Your son is handsome.

Have a fabulous day. ☺

Colette S said...

He is having much fun! Kids need to be outside like that.
I definitely need to capture their adventures in photo books.

mail4rosey said...

Not necessarily, my gram would have loved a photo book of just her dogs. :)

mail4rosey said...

I was surprised they use photo paper. I like!!

Fabulous day to you too, Sandee. :)

I'm definitely going to check this out! I have so many photos of E already haha.

StarTraci said...

This is great! Making photo books from our travels has been on To Do list for months. This might be just the inspiration I need. Thanks for sharing!

This is my first time hearing about Adormapix. Your book turned out beautiful, I will check them out!

Ashley @Irishred02 said...

I have never heard of this company before but I love phonebooks. Your layouts like the spiral page, look great

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

My wife puts together photo books but I don't think she's ever used them.

Kristi Maloney said...

Your photo book came out so nice. I recently had one made by Adoramapix as well and am very happy with it!

~ Noelle said...

On photo paper??? Awesome. Need to look for our house.

Binky said...

It turned out very nice.

Heather Lawrence said...

That turned out really nice! Are you able to add text? The scrapbooker in me really wants to make one but I have to add text so I can remember where we were and what we were doing. LOL!!

Meagan Goepferich said...

I love how yours turned out. Photo books are a favorite of mine and the closest to scrapbooking I will ever get.

Lisa Favre said...

This would be fantastic for family trips that we take but never find enough time to fill out a photo album. Love this idea!

Brandy said...

I've never heard of Adormapix before! I love that these are like scrap books but they use photo paper!

Teresa Moody said...

I like how it turned out. We do a photo book of our vacations.

Brianne Manz said...

Oh this is so cool. I was so good about making books and then when #2 and #3 came along I stopped but I am dying to get the past 5 years worth of photos in an album!

Theresa Mahoney said...

Aren't photo books wonderful? I agree with you on Pat's comment. I'd really dig an entire book featuring my dogs :)

Mixed Reviews said...

Photobooks are a lot of fun to make. I like keeping memories in a book, it's something special to look back on. I'm gonna check out Adorampix now.

Annemarie LeBlanc said...

Oh wow. I should start putting our vacation photos into a photo book like this. It is better than keeping our precious pictures in a flash drive which might get corrupted in time. A photo book is a definite family keepsake. Thanks for letting me know.

Laura - Eye Candy Creative Studio said...

This is one of those cool things that I always say I am going to do but always push it down on my list. But seriously I LOVE this idea and having the memories all organized like this

Six Time Mommy TEST said...

Wow that turned out lovely. I have so many photos I really need to start turning them into photo books. I think its such a great idea, and wonderful keepsake! - jeanine

Amanda Love said...

I really appreciate photobooks especially since they're a great way to keep memories. Looks like you found a great company that you can rely on for family photos!

Lindsey Paris said...

I Loooooove photo books. I'm always making them because otherwise, no one sees the photos! I grew up with HUGE bulky albums so these are a better bet.

Nicole Escat said...

Wow, I love photo books! I wish I can have one for our love story adn one for my son!

Kita Bryant said...

I've never heard of this company before. However, I can never resist photobooks!

Melisasource said...

I've never heard of this before but it definitely sounds tempting! I will have to look into this for sure.

Christina Aliperti said...

I hadn't heard of this company before but I am impressed. I love that they print on photo paper.

Tracy Iglesias said...

AdoramaPix metal prints sounds interesting I will have to look into those!
