Has anyone else used or recommend Millers (external link)? I just ordered an album from them last week and I thought it was really nice- 12x12 30 page flush mount pano. I use it as my sample album and I'm happy with the final result. The only thing I would have changed is going with either the premium leather, or a custom cover.

Millers has a good reputation, and honestly most flush mount albums are fine, there's not a huge amount between them. Of course page thickness, binding, and cover can be done well or badly.

another massive vote for Queensberry albums, quite luxurious and my clients are delighted with them. Although they are quite expensive.

I offer different albums based on budget. I keep the margins the same but I let the client decide.

I use ASABOOKS as my high end albums.... Yeah they are high end for my clients *L*
I use Adorama for the others.. Made with Fuji crystal paper and a hard cover. Easy to design and priced pretty good.

Pictobooks makes great albums. I won't go into their prices here but let's just say I haven't found a better album at any price and their prices aren't unreasonable...


Ditto. Picto has the best 10x10 on the market in terms of quality and price. Going to WPPI in February so ill take another look. We go every 2 yrs just to stay on top of whats going on in the industry. You just cant beat what picto provides at its price point for a 10x10. we also use millers and collage.net in a pinch but since switching to picto, almost all of our albums go through them. very pleased with the products.

love the Queensberry but they would be a very hard sell for me in the Midwest. Things are still tough in this neck of the woods. They are very nice.

I've used KISS (external link) for a couple years and have been very happy.

Though I just got a new sample from Red Tree Albums (external link) and it's awesome...so I may switch things up.

I recently shopped this and am staying with Zookbinders. High end enough to support my brand but affordable enough for me to sell big albums (12x12 and 40-60 pages) well more than half the time. I'm annoyed that they're going to be marketing and selling the same albums directly, but the way I price everything, I don't believe it's going to be that much of a threat.

Yeah man...their product is really nice and there is definitely something to be said for their SWAT designer and how easy the ordering process is.

I just got my sample album from Collages.net - I'm very impressed. Good quality, customer service, and reasonable prices.

SWAT still has a little room to grow. Picaboo's "PicabooX" software is a bit more user-friendly and has more design options. But yeah, definitely better than manually laying out 100 images in InDesign.
