Winkflash Photo Book Review

As I mentioned a bit ago, I made a photo book about my Peruvian adventure. It's hard to believe Peru was a year ago! I used winkflash mostly because it was affordable (or considerably affordable compared to other sites). The 12 x 12 book starts at $38.95 for 20 pages and increases with every page &/or custom cover you add.

With a custom cover & a grand total of 96 pages, I was looking at $158.95. I rationalized this by considering how much money I would spend on stickers, printing pictures, how much time I was saving, etc. Okay $160, I can do this.

Then... (thank you, Google) I found a coupon for a base rate. This means that I wouldn't pay the per page fee (translating to $1.50 savings x 76 pages... or $114 in savings!). I nervously typed in the coupon code & my jaw dropped when I saw that it worked. With the 20 pictures I printed, my GRAND TOTAL with shipping was $57.53. Regardless of the quality this was a STEAL.

I placed my order on August 29 & received the book in my hands on September 6. Considering there was a weekend & a holiday in between, this was FAST.

I was very impressed. Great quality! I will be using winkflash again for another photo book (or five) (& a calendar...).

Simple & not too time consuming
One flat fee goes into the book (ie no stickers cost, no cost for printing the pictures, etc.)
Affordable (with or without a coupon)
Very good quality
Shipped right to your door quickly (unlike some companies who ship from Hong Kong or the like and take weeks)

Limited variety of backgrounds
Limited add-ons to pages (buttons, or embellishments)
Limited font selection
Limited templates

Overall, however, I loved the quality & simplicity of designing a winkflash book. They're having 50% off photo books now through June 9th with the coupon code BOOKS50!

  1. Stopping by from the perfect pear! I love this! I've been thinking about doing a photo book to chronicle my recent trip to Europe but I've only used Blurb in the past and the software is so dang slow. I'll have to check Winkflash out!


Got anything to say? I'd love to hear from you!
