Printing Product Reviews

Over the last six months or so, I've come across different printing deals that I've taken advantage of when funds were available. Here's a look at four products from four different printing companies:

Company: Artisan State
Product: 6x8 Layflat Book (20 pages)

Price: $5 trial offer, normally $30 ($5 shipping)

Pros & Cons: I love this book. The price was right and I happened to have a good amount of Walker Stalker Con photos that didn't fit on the scrapbook layouts I had already made. While it seems durable (hard cover), I wouldn't let the kids be tossing it around or anything.

Company: Photobucket
Product: 5x7 Wrapped Canvas

Price: $9.50 - 75% off offer - normally $37.99 ($5.00 shipping)

Pros & Cons: Cute little canvas for the price I paid for it. Light weight and not super durable, it's great for keeping on the shelf. I absolutely would not have paid the original price of $37.99 though.



Price: $12.96

Pros & Cons: Super nice mounted photo at a reasonable price. I liked that I was able to pick it up within 24 hours. Great for a quick gift idea.



Product: 5x5 Mini Book

Price: $10 Father's Day Offer - normally $15 ($5 shipping)

Pros & Cons: This was a cute little father's day gift. I don't know that I would have ordered just the one for $10 with $5 shipping, but since they combined the shipping on both books I ordered, I only paid $5 shipping for two $10 books. My boyfriend's kids took a permanent marker to the pages inside to write little memories and notes, so excuse the finger smudges on the cover ;) It's worth noting that Persnickety almost always has some kind of percent off offer going on.
