Montage Makes Photo Book-Building a Snap

It is estimated that 27,800 photos are uploaded to Instagram every minute.  Another 208,300 are uploaded to Facebook in that same 60 seconds.  That’s over six billion photos per month.  Which means there’s a market out there for photo books (and every type of printed medium you can imagine).   But how many of us actually take the time to sit down and build a photo book filled with our favorite images?  Montage simplifies that whole burdensome process enabling everyone from novice to professional to create wonderful, lay-flat albums.  And get this – in an incredibly easy-to-order process with just three simple FIXED prices.  Wow.
Montage by Mixbook Photo Albums
Beautiful lay-flat books with a lovely eco-leather from Italy
Mixbook released Montage late last year. Consumer Reports rated Mixbook as its number-one rated photo book in 2014 based on their offering of templates, fonts, - and especially budget.  Mixbook’s mobile app, Mosiac, won a 2014 Appy Award and easily maneuvers between your smartphone photos and its super easy app to create gorgeous albums in record time.  Again, the price structure is so simple with no add-on costs like the competitors. 

Montage brings photo book making to a whole new level.  The process and menu selection make book-building a breeze.  First, download between 20-180 photos (currently 180 is the maximum number allowed.)  The hardest decisions you’ll have to make in the entire process are which photos to select. Montage does the rest and upon downloading your images it builds a square album in minutes.  Presto, it’s like magic! 

After your album has been created you can further customize it by selecting and playing around with various designs, add text, titles and adjust page layout. At this time text on the book spine is not an option, but you can add titles to the front cover.
The real treat with Montage is the superb quality.  Forget about flimsy paper albums. Montage delivers beautiful, sturdy lay-flat pages wrapped cover-to-cover in soft eco-friendly leather that is imported from Italy. 

Choose from Small (6-inch), Medium (8.5-inch) to Large (12-inch) albums that are price-fixed at $39, $59 and $119 respectively.  How easy and affordable is that?  No matter how many photos (within the 180 max) or pages, that’s the price.   In less than a week I had my album delivered in an elegant white logo box.  Your Montage photo album is ready to gift in minutes.  Really. 
One element I would love to see in the future is a link to the albums that I can share online or privately with friends and family.   I’m sure that will only cause folks to think about creating one of their own albums.    

Instead of taking another photo that doesn’t get printed, check out Montage.  It’s like having your own private assistant build your album right before your very eyes.  And what busy person or professional photographer doesn’t want that?
