I had so much fun putting this album together from our beautiful vacation last year! Took me long enough ;) It was such a memorable trip and I am so thankful I used a really impeccable quality printer to put together the book. Bay Photo Lab has definitely blown me away with this lay flat 6 color printing book. I've never seen anything quite like it. Usually with "lay flat" books, the pages are like a board book, but these pages are thin allowing for a more cost effective option. I used the Bay Roes program to put together my layouts and like I usually do, I left no empty space and filled each page to the brim with as many photos as possible (I took WAY too many pictures that trip) and I am so so happy with the results. The images look JUST as they do on my computer screen which isn't common with most photo book printers. I've had issues with overly contrasted images, the colors getting desaturated or all my images looking far darker than the originals, but this Bay Photo book is absolutely perfect.
Being a photographer has made me really picky about print quality. I hate to know that I create images for clients and the printer turns the image to junk. I know it happens and I know I have clients out there that get their images back from a printer confused. This is why it's so important to invest in quality printing especially when you spend money for quality photographed images. All those perfectly exposed images with thoughtful editing could be completely destroyed by bad print quality. Don't take your photos to Costco/Walmart/Target guys. You'll always be disappointed.
A BIG thank you to Bay Photo for allowing me to review their print quality for this 12×12 hinged, lay-flat book! I'm really impressed and have a new go-to for book printing!
