Verdict: PrestoPhoto is a fairly popular service that prints photo albums, calendars, posters and various gifts with a unique design. It was founded in 2005 as a travel information company. Initially, they created travel books and in 2013 they switched exclusively to printing.
I like that they have reasonable prices, an online editor, thousands of layouts for work, an extensive number of services, and a PC program.
Visiting the PrestoPhoto website, you can immediately see all their services and prices. One of the advantages of the platform is the possibility to sell any item you create here. Once your calendar or other design is ready, you can share the link to it on any social network.
Many photographers sell photos online but they can earn more and expand their business with this service.
PrestoPhoto can print photo books of any complexity. You can create any design using a photo books maker or photo album software convenient for you. If you do not want to learn how to make a photo book and download different programs, you can use ready-made templates from PrestoPhoto and customize them to your taste.
You can choose different orientations for your future photo book - landscape, square and portrait. Also, you can use various bindings and cover formats, as well as the type of photo paper that you like. Plus, I recommend using photo retouching services to make your albums look professional.
PrestoPhoto lets you create your own cards with any design and for any occasion. Either you want to give your wedding photography ideas a physical form or print Christmas photos and business cards, PrestoPhoto can come in handy.
As for the format of a finished project, you can choose from Acrylic Prints, Brushed Matte Metal Prints, Ultra Gloss Metal Prints, Faux Canvas Prints, and True Canvas Prints. Concerning sizes, you can order prints from 6"x6" to 24"x36".
By the way, you can use the products and put them on the wall right out of the box. The kit includes materials for screwing in. The poster is attached with acrylic or metal parts on the back.
The company allows you to create bright and high-quality calendars in landscape and square formats with any photos you like. PrestoPhoto offers several size options. Moreover, you can specify which day the week starts with.
To implement your idea, you can either create a PDF calendar file yourself using the calendar making software or use the online editor and templates from the service. The company also offers various charities to create calendars for fundraising, providing a discount on the work and the possibility to sell such calendars online through the service.
You have a unique opportunity to create original gifts for family and friends at an affordable cost. While preparing this PrestoPhoto review, I found out that it is possible to create mugs, mousepads and custom drink coasters with your own print. You can also order ornaments. They're printed on 18-inch thick Ultra Gloss Metal. You can choose from a variety of sizes and shapes. Double-sided printing is also available. The company sends your gift with a red ribbon so you can tie it up or hang it wherever you want.
In addition to physical gifts, you can also purchase gift certificates from the company that can be used for any PrestoPhoto service. The price varies from $15 to $100. You can also use certificate templates to present your gift in a more original way.
A professional subscription costs $99 and is a one-time purchase. This is suitable for those photographers and retouchers who want to offer their clients additional services and promote their own brand. All your products will contain only your logo or name.
You can easily customize PrestPhoto products to suit the specifics of your business. For example, you can use any photography fonts in your artwork, or create your own logo using logo maker apps. The main advantage of cooperating with this agency is reasonable prices for high-quality printing.
The company’s price list shows the minimum cost for each service. But it can change as you create a photo book or work on a poster, depending on the selected materials, the number of pages, etc. The minimum price for a photo book is $8.99 for a 9x7 size paperback with 20 pages.
Although you can order a photo book of up to 400 pages, experts recommend not to include more than 240 pages, as the spine may be overloaded. Unfortunately, shipping prices are not clear. You cannot find out the cost until you place an order.
