Memory keeping with Photobook Malaysia

It’s an aging thing – memory keeping. Little girls grow up to become young ladies to later turn into women and soon.. aunties that loves the monstera deliciosa species and looking at old photos.

Despite the many photos I have uploaded and kept in my phone and stored in my cloud – I feel I need to have physical photos to look at once I get very old and feeble. InsyaAllah kalau umur panjang.

Recently Photobook had a Payday promotion. I can print 100 pieces of 4R Matte photos for only RM28 (including delivery). I used the offer to print out photos of my kids. Then, I brought another voucher in a different promotion which allows me to print 200 photos for only RM32. I used it to compile photos of my parents in law and hope to present it in an album and give it to my MIL on her birthday.

Photobook lets you save your work on the My Project section. You could use photos from your own desktop, digital files or even Google photos. My recent project were mostly from Google photos. It can be quite a pain to find the photo that you want from there if you’re not organized especially when you want to print 100 pieces. I suggest you start organizing the photos on your Google account a.s.a.p. Prior to starting a project on photobook, I put the images that I want in an album on Google photos. I labeled it as Photobook project 100 photos. This is so – that when I start my project, I can just upload the photos from that existing album instead of having to scroll in the little space for the photo that you want.

I also find that some vouchers do not work on the Mobile App. Hence, to be sane.. use your laptop/desktop. Delivery was super efficient. In Malaysia, you can expect your photos to be delivered as fast as 2 working days via GDex.

My next photo printing projects will be mostly on our travels. Perhaps I’d do a coffee table book to get conversations started. Or turn photos into interesting momentos. We will see.

Review : Photobook with Foto-Zzoom

This is a Sticky Post. For new post, please scroll down. 

I am a fan of photobooks. Especially after seeing my own wedding photos eternalized in a pretty, thick book back in 2010. The photos won’t be torn, smudged or damaged in any way unless the book itself caught fire. Since then, I have been eye-ing on a few sites which offer these services and lately I came across Foto-Zzoom.

Foto-Zzoom allows customers to create their photobook in less than 15 minutes. I mean who would have time to actually sit down in front of the computer for hours playing editor. Not to mention the pain of having to adjust the settings and size of the pictures especially on photos with poor resolutions. Well, at Foto-Zzoom they will try to solve the headache for you as you order the book in 3 simple steps.

1. Choose the size and design of the book.

2. Key in your personal and payment details

3. Upload your pictures. Do bear in mind that the ‘ORDER NOW’ button would not light up until you have sufficient number of photos uploaded based on the size of the photobook you chose. Having done that, all you have to do is sit back and relax while the designing team does the editing for you. This will take a few days.

Once that is done, they will send you a link for the finished product to your email so you may review and discuss amendments (if any) with the team before it gets published.

The photobook was couriered by City-Link and it arrived on my doorstep safe and sound in one beautiful masterpiece. Even Pekanbaru doesn’t look as mundane as how it was during our little family trip few months ago.

A photobook would look great on anybody’s coffee table. If you place your order now, you will get discounts as the site is having a promotion with the upcoming Raya. Have fun!
