Photobox – Review and Giveaway

I have used Photobox many times over the years, to make photobooks to remember special moments from way back even before we had the kids, for weddings and holiday photos! I always find the site easy to use and very reliable, and the books are always of a great quality which is why I have gone back to them time and time again

When I was given some credit to chose some items to review, I decided to get a photobook and some of their other photo products that I had not tried before.

I went for a minibook as I had not tried one of these before and they look so cute. Being so small, they are ideal for pictures from your phone or instagram, where the quality may not be so high to look good in a really large photobook. I decided to put some collages in too, which I had made for my blog. The pages are big enough that you can see the individual pictures in the collages so it does look good. I am really pleased with the result and this is such a bargain photobook at only Β£5.99 for 32 pages. The size is 9.0cm x 7.0cm and you can choose between 5 colours. It easily fits in your bag if you want to take your favourite photos out with you.
miniphotobookI also decided to try a snow globe, as I have always liked these since I was little, its such a simple yet magical effect to shake the globe and see the snow fluttering down. The boys were quite mesmerised by it too! This snow globe is really well made and the picture can be seen through very well, it looks great! Perhaps I actually should have chosen a more wintery pic of the kids, to make it more atmospheric – but I liked this one as I took it recently and they are all looking the right way and smiling, which is not always that easy to achieve with 3 active kids!! These picture snow globes would make a great gift and be lovely on a shelf in a child’s bedroom. They are 9.99 and you can choose between love hearts or snow.

snowglobeThe next new item I decided to try was an Aluminium photo panel. There are quite a few options now on Photobox like having the photos printed on Aluminium or wood panels, and I was quite intrigued to try it out as I had never seen these anywhere. I had Mr T’s school photos from nursery, which we bought only on CD and had not yet got any prints done so I thought this would be a perfect chance to try it out. With the Aluminium panel you don’t need any frame, as it is printed directly on to the metal and you can stand it up as it is. It is a really modern effect and pretty cool! The metal is very slim, and has a high gloss coating and is scratch resistant. It shows his photo off beautifully, and I would definitely try these again in the future. I got the 7×5 size which is Β£15.99 and you can get larger sizes, either in rectangular, square or panoramic.

aluminiumI still have some more credit to spend on Photobox and I will probably get an A4 classic collage book, I love the covers of these – It looks very funky!

If you have some photos that deserve some love, either being preserved into a photobook or turned into a gift, print or canvas, then come and enter as Photobox have kindly provided me with Β£40 worth of credit to give to one lucky reader!

  3. I would use it to buy personalised calendars, we have done this before as family presents as they cant bare to take them down, years after we handed them out. We theme the photos all year – so sunny lolly shots, Halloween scary, Christmas / fluffy farm lambs etc all with the children doing funky poses of course. πŸ˜‰

    These make excellent gifts, Photobox is a really innovative idea. πŸ™‚

  4. I’ve used Photobox for years. I’ve tried most of the others and they are the best by far, in my opinion. I’ve not seen the aluminium panels before though, they look very modern and I’d definitely like to buy one of those if I were lucky enough to win πŸ˜‰

  12. We finally have a home to call our own and I’m now trying to make our stamp on it and there’s a distinct lack of pictures despite the millions of photo frames I seem to have lol so it would have to be printing the millions of photos I have sat waiting that I always say I’m going to print!

  14. My Grandma has dementia and tends to rip up photographs as part of her condition. Having a snow globe would be perfect for her to see her great grandkids and keep them safe.

  15. I have bought one of their photo books before and totally loved it, we divided the pages between the 4 children and did them from birth to the point we were at then, I’d love to do it again with the ‘next chapter’ of their lives πŸ™‚
