AE Review : Persnickety Prints

Persnickity4

In the mail yesterday I received a series of digital layouts and prints I'd uploaded to Persnickety Prints last week. I decided to try out Persnickety after hearing positive feedback around the internet from others who had used their services.

The results were great. I love having these layouts printed and now safely tucked into my albums. I don't usually print 12x12 pages here at home (even though I have an over-sized HP Photosmart B8550 Inkjet Photo Printer
that I like and use daily both for photos and general office-related printing needs
). I find that the professional prints just turn out better overall.


I printed one 12x12 photo (as the second page to this layout shown above). I love having one whole page as a part of a two-page spread. Such a nice way to include photos in the mix.

As you can see, my digital layouts go right into my 12x12 albums along with my traditional paper layouts.

On my desktop I have a file called "Print." In that file I add digital layouts as I complete them and then when I have a bunch in there I'll upload them to be printed. I usually include any special photos I want to have enlarged.

These two layouts can be seen in more detail here and here.

In addition to the digital pages I also ordered five foam mounted 8x10's that I'll be using for an upcoming home photo project.


UPLOAD + ORDER PROCESS : The upload and order process was simple and didn't take too long (I uploaded 9, 12x12 images and 5, 8x10 images). I thought it was cool that their size options included 8x8, 6x6, and 8.5x11 - all great for digitally printed projects.


CUSTOMER SERVICE : Excellent. They emailed me and let me know that one of my files had been uploaded low-resolution and I was able to email them the full-resolution version before printing.

I'd definitely order from Persnickety again in the future.

And in case you are wondering, I've always been happy using Scrapbookpictures.com (one of the reasons I love them is that they are based here in Oregon) and Shutterfly,
but I find it's worth checking out others as a means of comparison and it's
always nice to find companies with great customer service.

WANT MORE REVIEWS? : Here's a really great post at The Daily Digi that reviews a bunch of different companies.

My friend Jen Lee is hosting a Voice & Story Retreat this coming November in Colorado called Integrate In The Rockies. It may be just the thing you are needing in your life right now.
