Photo Book Review: Walgreens

We are on a quest to find you the best products and ideas for your digital images, and have decided to review photo book providers one book at a time.  

Today:  Walgreens

Some things we really liked about creating a Walgreen's photo book is that they offer same day pickup, the upload process was extremely fast, it's easy to find a coupon code, and there are a lot of designs to choose from.

Basically if you want a photo book fast- Walgreens is a great option.  While they are convenient, there are some downsides to choosing them as your printer.

 1- The hardback cover quality isn't the greatest.  The corners of the book are smooshed, and you can peel off the wrapping.
2- The binding is terrible.  It hardly provides any support to the book.
3-In the front, as well as the back of the book, you can see the white threads used to bind the book, giving it a cheap feel.
4-While the print quality itself was good, the pages were really thin, and wrinkled with the slightest turn of the page.

Ratings (on a scale of 1-5):
Quality- 2
Website (Ease of Creation)- 4
Design- 4
Overall- 3.5
