Thank you to Montage for sending the photobook. The honest opinions are my own.
When our girls were growing up, every year for Christmas I would put together a scrapbook of their past year. At that time there was none of the fun scrapbook materials there are today. It was simply gather the papers up and glue them on pages. Some years I would run all over just to find some type of scrapbook.
Photobooks have made saving memories even easier. Christmas rolls around and often if we have taken a family trip together or a special occurrence has happened during the year, our girl’s families will receive a photobook. I have been a big fan of Mixbook forever. To tell you the truth, I can get sucked into all the things I am able to do with Mixbook to make my creation look special. Before I know it, two or three hours are gone.
So when Montage contacted Te’sa about reviewing a photobook I immediately said “yes.” Montage is the little sister of Mixbook. If you want to create a book in as little 15 or 20 minutes this is the book for you. If you are new to photobooks or are overwhelmed with the things you can do on Mixbook, Montage is for you. After you upload your pictures, Montage does all the work for you. They are automatically placed on page for you based on one of the thirteen themes you selected. You are able to add text and select a different layout if you choose. That’s it. Click order and your done.
All books are square and three sizes are available. The cover is eco-friendly leather imported from Italy and the pages are archival paper fused on cardstock.
The pages are far thicker than any photobook I have ever ordered. The colors are vibrant and true to my camera settings.
It was obvious at first glance that Montage is an above average photobook. A book that will remain a treasure for years to come and it only took 20 minutes!
