Here's what others have had to say

Peter on 28.04.2017
I took advantage of the voucher to purchase a photo book and review it. I can honestly say that this book i created was one of the best i have made. I have exhibitions and also sell a few of my images and if the prints are of the same high quality as the book , then i will be using Saal quite often. The software was easy to use and maneuver around. I think Saal has offered great service and quality products and i am now wondering what image to put on my Wall Decor.
Susan on 26.04.2017
This fair review is in exchange for receiving this photobook from Saal-Digital. Really pleased with the quality of the photos. Liked the thickness of the pages which enhanced the appearance of the photos. Very prompt at making the album, keeping in touch with me about the delivery. Would highly recommend this company.
jonathan on 26.04.2017
Received the photobooklet just a few days after ordering. Having already had a hardback photobook, I did notice a difference in quality between the products. However, the hardback is a premium product (and more expensive). The quality of the photos in the photobooklet are very clear and vivid and the 20x20 size means its a nice product to have on the coffee table as a conversation starter. Saal have offered a great service and great product and would recommend them and will be using them for future prints
Customer review from 26.04.2017
I had already ordered one of the photobooks for wedding clients. I ordered the white leather look book with the couples' names and wedding date on the cover enclosed in a white box. When I delivered it, the bride actually cried when she saw it. That's when I knew this would be my new book for wedding clients. I ordered another through the facebook promotion(for testers) and this is what I show new clients as a sample book. The quality of the photo paper is excellent and the book looks extremely nice in it's white presentation box. Very impressed
paul on 26.04.2017
We are so pleased with the photo book. The quality is excellent and the Lie flat layout is brilliant . The picture quality has uploaded fantastically from my PC and the size is perfect. I would be better prepared next time I use you site as I did get confused on the left hand side options, but I was short on time making the book so my own fault next time I will spend more time perfecting the tiny mistakes I have noticed all my own fault . IE boarders not equal etc etc ..I love the book and will be ordering again Postage was a great price to be honest I felt nearly £40.00 was a little bit steep for casual printing. I would only buy again if on offer or if it was a wedding album i was producing etc etc . Thanks for the product . I will recommend your company thanks
Jim on 26.04.2017
So Excited to open my delivery today, i was not disappointed the Quality is excellent, I ordered this as just starting out in Photography in my area and wanted something to show people what kind of end product they can purchase. Saal Digital have exceeded expectations and get my custom in the future. Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to review this product i will recommend your company to all my friends
Customer review from 25.04.2017
I'm so happy with my photo book. I've been doing photography for a while now and decided to put some of favorites into a hard back photo book. My photos look amazing spread over 2 pages and it's easier to show people the book, rather than setting up the laptop or tv. The quality of the book is excellent, delivery was very prompt and quicker than expected and yes, i'll be using the service again.
Jo on 24.04.2017
After searching for stunning and unique ways to offer my clients their images and to showcase my own work I have finally found a wonderful photo book from Saal Digital UK I was lucky enough to meet the team at the recent Photography show and they were very helpful and filled my bag with sample papers, swatches etc. I was in heaven! Delightful products, efficient, easy to use service and prompt delivery. I am more than pleased with the quality of this item and am so excited to help my clients create a book like this that will be cherished for years to come.
Gav on 21.04.2017
First time with SAAL, brilliant service, great quality and easy to use software. What is there not to like. Far better than other providers I have used. Will be using again and again.....
Jonathan on 21.04.2017
Superb finish to products and fast turn around, highly recommended.
Ken on 20.04.2017
Received my photo-book and was extremely happy with it. The quality was to the highest standard. The whole experience from creating to delivery was seamless. I always give a honest review and the only thing was the price, I thought it was a tab expensive. Great service & great quality, i will have no hesitation recommending the photo-book
Johnny on 20.04.2017
I just received my photobook and I am REALLY impressed. I did a collection of my landscape images that come in larger print sizes, something I can show to people at the stalls at art fairs if they want to see a larger range of what I do, and this fits the ticket perfectly. I must say, the quality is excellent (What a hassle I had with printing quality from a company who shall remain nameless when I was producing my Graded Unit book a few years ago - Not good). The printing is excellent and the colours well represented and exactly as I wanted them. The paper quality too is impressive, with extremely heavy pages that are great to flick through, and I won't be worried about clients being a little rough with it. The version I decided to try was padded on the outside and is a great addition to an already impressive book. This would make it ideal for wedding photographers offering a printed photobook to clients, and I would thoroughly recommend trying this company out. Turnaround time, too, was impressive. I uploaded my book last Monday and received notification on Tuesday that It was dispatched. Cant get quicker than that.
Customer review from 20.04.2017
As a new business, we are always looking of ways to show our work. When the offer of a FREE photobook came up, we jumped at the chance even if a little sceptical at first. We tendered our application and were sent a voucher code and instruction to download the software. The software is so simple to use, in fact the whole process was painless. Ive only just placed my order so cant comment on the book yet, but i will do so on the facebook page as and when it arrives. We at M&M Photography are excited to see the book and look forward to hopefully dealing with you again in the future
Customer review from 20.04.2017
I was very impressed with the quality of my photobook. Everything from the clarity of the printing to the quality of the paper was outstanding. The process of downloading and using the software was easy, especially when compared with other photobook services I have used. I will certainly be using @saal-digital.co.uk again and will recommend them whenever I am able.
Customer review from 19.04.2017
Taking advantage of your trial offer, I recently ordered a photobook. I will review this on Facebook as agreed, as soon as I have time. Just to say here though that the product is superb, and the software was easy to use once I had figured it out. I will be making photobooks in the future, and will definitely come back to you to create them. I have only given 4 out of 5 for delivery time, but I should point out that this really relates to the time that DHL sat on it, as you actually produced and despatched the book within 24 hours.
Sinclair on 19.04.2017
I received my book today and I'm more than pleased with the quality, The photos are what they should look like, the colors are perfect and the gloss finish gives it the WOW facture. The software is so easy to use and the amount of different profiles are endless. The turn around was fantastic and only days from ordering to delivery. I really recommend www.saal-digital.co.uk to anyone and I will be using them again. Thank you saal I give you 10 out of 10
Georgina on 19.04.2017
Oh double Wow!!! I am so pleased with my photobook, the quality is amazing. My family and friends were totally impressed with the book too. Software was easy to download and to use. The photos were printed in extremely high quality and they simply look awesome. Great customer service, highly recommended.
Charlie on 16.04.2017
I received my Photobook yesterday and what can i say other than WOW!. The quality is superb. Ive had many issues with printers in the past, due to differing print profiles etc, photos arriving darker, different colouring etc etc. No such problems with my photo book from @saal-digital.co.uk , the photos are EXACTLY as seen on my computer screen. The whole ordering process was simple, their ordering software is simple to download and use, once my order was placed my order arrived in a matter of days. Great service & great quality, i will have no hesitation in using @saal-digital.co.uk in the future!
jonathan on 15.04.2017
Chuffed with my photobook from you. Quality is amazing, even on poorer-quality camera shots. The thickness and glossiness of the photos are fantastic and really good quality. The lie-flat option really enhances the panoramic photos spread across 2 pages. Ordering was quick and simple and emails kept me up to date with production & delivery times. Ordered and received in less than a week. Great customer service. Will use you again in the future and certainly recommend you to family & friends
Audrey on 14.04.2017
I had the opportunity to order a photo book from you recently. I would like to let you know that I was so excited when I received this photo book. The quality is the best, the glossy finish and the paper thickness make it look and feel very professional. The software required to process my order was quick to download and fairly easy to navigate. There were different layout styles to choose from too which is great. The printing and delivery were speedy. I will definitely use you again.
Mark on 13.04.2017
As a wedding photographer it is important to me how my images end up getting displayed.It is easy enough for me to create a wedding album online for my wedded couple but being able to create an album adds a traditional feel. I saw an advert SAAL advertising their albums so went to the website and downloaded thier design software. The software was very easy to use, being drag and drop with lots of layout options. The software allows for added text, background images and some pre laid out designs. I found the software very easy to use and was easily able to play around with my design until I was happy. The ordering process was simple and shipment fast. I received my well packaged album 5 days after ordering. I opted for the display box which is of very good quality and will keep the album safe for years to come. The album itself was smaller than I expected, my mistake in thinking inches instead of centimetres. The quality was exceptional with good colour balance throughout the album. The pages felt heavy being made of lovely quality paper. The whole package felt good, not the same feel as a leather bound album (I went for a picture front and back), but for the price paid extremely good value. I will definitely be using SAAL again, the software is easy to use, the quality is great, fast shipping and good value for money.
Keith on 12.04.2017
Just received my photobook, to say I'm pleased is an under statement, the quality of the pics is amazing as is the quality of the book build . I will not hesitate to recommend and re order again Thank you Saal
Graham on 12.04.2017
Just received my Photo book this morning and am over the Moon!, the quality is superb. The gloss finish, sharpness and trueness of colour is fantastic, every image jumps out of the page as if you were there!. I will certainly recommend you guys to all my friends and will certainly use your services again. I have put a review and sample pages on my facebook page, GJ Smith Landscape Photography. Many thanks for this top quality service and product.
Aisling on 11.04.2017
My @saal_digital Photobook arrived yesterday! And im beyond happy with the final product. I was lucky enough to be able to avail of a £40 voucher which allowed me to print and deliver my book without extra charge. I will be printing with this company again. Above you will find some images of my photobook which is a 26 page book with a padded linen cover and a matte finish on all images. I am very happy with the print and paper quality of this product, and the cover finish looks very professional. My only advice when creating your own would be to make sure no faces are in the centre of the pages where the page will have a fold, the image does not get distorted but the fold is more visible if there is something very detailed on it, a mistake on my part not the printing that i hope someone else in the future will take on board. The printing and delivery of my Photobook did not take very long to arrive as i made my order on March 24th and my book arrived on April 10th. Overall I am delighted with the service and will be purchasing from saal digital in the future. ☆☆☆☆☆
Oli on 11.04.2017
Only 2 problems: I couldn't chose to use one of my photos for the cover, and when entering my address there was only a field for house number whereas my house has a name - this meant I could only put in 'Greenway' rather than the full name, 'Greenways'.
Customer review from 10.04.2017
The software was very intuitive, having placed my order on a Sunday afternoon, I received an email stating my item had been dispatched the next day. The photo book arrived by Friday. The quality is superb, the pages feel like good quality paper with a nice glossy cover. I will definitely use Saal-digital again, looking forward to my next project
Customer review from 10.04.2017
WOW! WOW! WOW! There are companies that print your images and there are companies that really excel at printing images. Saal Digital are most assuredly the latter group. This company has been absolutely fantastic - from very first contact. An incredibly knowledgeable and nice man was on the stand at the Photography Show who introduced me to the company, without giving me the hard sell that the majority of other brands were doing (behaviour that always puts me off!) He explained that the trials were running and why didn't I see for myself how good the products were? After filling in a simple form with my company details, the voucher for my trial order arrived quickly. Downloading the software was so easy as was using it too - it was so user friendly that a known technophobe friend of mine had a quick go and was very impressed. The website was really easy to navigate, with a great choice of products - and even better, a very reasonable price in my opinion, particularly now I have seen the quality for myself! The notification of despatch came within a day and then its a waiting game with the postal services - amazingly it has only taken approx. 5 days all the way from Germany! The outer packaging is excellent - no bumped corners on the books from over zealous handling by Post Office Staff here! Everything was in its own packing and it is all recyclable too! The book cover is delicious and enticing. Once I had removed it from its protective wrapper, I opened my book and was blown away! The images are crisp, clear and very beautiful, with the colours exactly as I shot them. They have a jewel like quality and to be honest - the book looked and felt like I had published a coffee table book. Yes, the images are that good!!! What's more, the paper is very heavy so it will withstand the rigours of many people handling the book at fairs and lies flat too! I had also ordered a small acrylic and an Alu-Dibond image for display at fairs etc and they are gorgeous. I can't wait to display them and offer these products to my clients. I love my items and am so glad I went on your stand at the show. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to all my friends and will certainly be using you again. Here's to a long and happy association with Saal-Digital and thank you so very much for the voucher .
Customer review from 10.04.2017
I recently ordered the trial phonebook from you to see what it looked like with photos from a wedding that I had done a couple of months previously. I didn't have much time to spend on designing the album because of work commitments so I wasn't expecting too much from the finished product. The software was easy to use which is supplied from Saal. The album didn't take long to before I received it. I was amazed at the speed of delivery and also the quality of the finished product. If I could have spent more time in the designing of the photobook it would have been even better but that was my fault and not the fault of Saal. I will definitely be ordering more products and will be recommending the company to my friends.
Joanna on 09.04.2017
Very happy about this service and the quality is amazing !
Customer review from 08.04.2017
I had the opportunity, very recently, to trial a company and their photobooks and I was not disappointed. Everyone is aware of the usual standard of photobooks that we expect, and they are good but not always great. But, if you are talking about wedding photos or newborn babies, you want something that is just that little bit more special. Something that oozes quality and elegance, doesn't break the bank in the process, arrives quickly and allows you total flexibility in the development process. Saal Digital UK do exactly that and more. I was blown away by the exceptionally high standard of their photobook when it arrived with me. The process begins with you deciding the type of photobook you would like and then downloading the software. Having done this more than once, I am very used to this bit being a pain, and having the process run as quickly and easily as it did made such a difference. The software is incredibly easy to use and offers total flexibility with how you put your book together. You can keep it simple and just load the pages up with images, or get a little bit more adventurous and spread them across double pages, working them edge to edge. The process was simple to use and also allows you to save the book and come back to it if required. The turnaround on the book was incredibly impressive. Within 24 hours I had an email saying that my book was printed and on its way. Just fantastic! The book arrived, having come from Germany, around 5 days later and I was blown away. The cover was exceptionally sturdy and looked fantastic, something that a lot of other companies seem to skimp on, and on opening the book, I discovered that it only got better. The printing of the images was first class and I remember thinking to myself how good these guys had made my images look! The pages were printed on a heavy paper which will definitely help to prevent easy damage, and the book opens flat so if you have images spread across the centre, you can view them properly. The glossy finish really made the photos pop, and the colours of the images had come through beautifully, again something that I have found to be an issue with other companies, but most definitely not here. I am extremely impressed with the overall quality of this product and would absolutely recommend to anybody looking for an exceptionally high quality book at a fantastic price to use them. I will most definitely be using them again. 10/10 Saal Digital UK. You have most definitely given the other companies on the market a run for their money with this product!
Customer review from 07.04.2017
The best way to judge a company is to find out how they perform when something goes wrong! In my case, for some reason, one of my photos just didn't appear in the book, even though it was visibly loaded at the PDF proof stage. I notified SAAL who, without quibble, advised me exactly how to rectify the problem within the project and sent me a voucher to get the book reprinted. The reprint was perfect! This was my 4th project with SAAL (photobooks and wall art) and I can only say...great products, fast and trackable delivery and EXCELLENT CUSTOMER CARE. Thank you!
Customer review from 07.04.2017
It was an easy and pleasurable experience dealing with Saal. The quality of the photo book was superb ,with outstanding print and paper quality. I would highly recommend them, and will use them again! Thank you.
Customer review from 07.04.2017
Absolutely brilliant book with great quality photos. The book is great quality too. The only gripe? There is none, except with the person that "designed" the book... I somehow managed to mix up the front and back covers! However even that cannot detract from the sheer brilliance of this product! I will definitely be looking to use SAAL again (for books and prints) and would highly recommend them to others.
Customer review from 06.04.2017
Thank you very much for our photobook, its look beautiful. Its a very special prezent . We love it , highly recommended 5
Customer review from 05.04.2017
Can't comment on the Quality, Service or Delivery Time as yet, as only just submitted the project. However, the Software is sleek; Installation was a breeze and Navigation in regard to adding images and positioning was very intuitive. My only confusion was in regard to previewing my project. I would like to have seen a virtual copy of my Photo book before I went to 'add to Cart'. If I had not had the safety net of the product test £40 voucher, I possibly wouldn't have continued without seeing my finished product. I think this small feature could make the difference between a sale or no sale. Its like asking someone to buy something they haven't seen.
Customer review from 05.04.2017
OMG Amazing, this is the finest quality book I have ever had and I've had a few. The quality is out of this world - well done and thanks
Customer review from 04.04.2017
I use photo books quite regularly and was happy with my current supplier as they had always given me a good service , however I was offered to take part in SAAL DIGITAL's trail promotion for a Photobook so thought i'd give it a go. I downloaded the software onto my MacBook Pro and uploaded a selection of images id taken in Salisbury Cathedral and having shot in RAW with no flash i thought this would be a bit of a challenge for SAAL DIGITAL . Although i'd done some post processing in Lightroom to bring out all the colours, tones and details in the print would be a good test of how good they were. I placed my order and that was it. Within a week i had a knock at the door and my Photobook had arrived. I opened the very well packaged parcel and was immediately impressed by the feel of the book , it was rigid and solid yet not heavy or clumsy . Turning over the first page i was flashed by an immediate gloss which was quite dazzling to be honest . I'd been very selective of my images to make sure i would really put them to the test , and they didn't let me down . My images were simply stunning. Bright, vibrant , full of detail and beautiful tones and colours. This was exactly as i'd wanted my images to look like and i was very pleased. Turning through the pages i came across a double page image and i can honestly say i could not see the seem down the middle f the image at all , these guys really know how to construct a Photobook and i am now ready to leave my previous supplier behind and carry on using SAAL DIGITAL . If you are thinking of giving them a go I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed , take that plunge , you will be glad you did.
Customer review from 03.04.2017
I found the software quite easy to use. Your website very easy to navigate. The Photobook arrived today and I must say how impressed I am. The quality is excellent, the colours of the photographs are very good. I will be recommending SAAL Digital without hesitation. Thank you.
adebisi on 03.04.2017
Initially, there was an error with the packaging of my order and I must say that I was impressed how swiftly this was rectified. The production quality was excellent and there is nothing I can fault about it. Thank you.
Customer review from 02.04.2017
You popped up on my Facebook feed as free photo book if you do a review, it couldn't be more easy, downloaded the software which was so easy to use, my book arrived yesterday and it is vey nice, chuffed with it, thank you.
Customer review from 01.04.2017
Software is simple to use and you can make a great photobook in minutes.
Dallas on 01.04.2017
Such an easy process, well impressed.
Mark on 31.03.2017
I took the opportunity to review the Photobooks from Saal-Digital, I should say from the outset that I am mightily impressed, not only with the quality of the finished article but also the ease with which one can layout and produce the item to send to print. By opening the companies Web page via http://www.saal-digital.co.uk/ you are invited to download their publishing software. The resulting app is both straightforward to use and full of options and layouts to enable the complete novice to produce a Photobook of high quality. The book was shipped within 24 hours and I must confess to some misgivings as to the expected quality with such a rapid turnaround but I needn’t have worried, the book arrived in excellent packaging and I was overjoyed with the quality of both the printing and the construction of the book itself. The prints are superb, colours are vibrant and, thankfully, look exactly as intended. I have shown the book to a recent wedding client and they are looking to order a number for themselves as they were very impressed. I will certainly use Saal-Digital for my future photography book needs and will recommend them to all future clients looking to record their special occasions in a similar fashion. Check them out. Mark Woodward. www.thedorsetphotographer.com
Richard on 31.03.2017
Fast and easy to use software, very impressed with the prices and how you can customise everything on and in the photobook. . Book arrived in timely manner and the reproduction was first class. I would highly recommend them and will be using again. Thanks Guys
Customer review from 31.03.2017
I recently had the opportunity to take Saal Digital UK​ up on a product review of their photo books. My book arrived and I have to say I’ve been impressed with the whole process start to finish. Creating the image layout, the style of book and including the covers was a breeze using the easy downloadable software and templates provided. The book arrived quickly and I have to say the quality is outstanding. Images are crisp and colours vibrant as you would expect. I chose a selection of images to showcase my work to clients and I’m extremely impressed with how the book has turned out. I’ll now be using Saal in the future for all my clients albums. www.stevemccoy.co.uk

I paid extra for wooden cover. I thought it will be real wood but instead is rubber cover with wood imitation. Quality very good.
Lynda on 30.03.2017
I am very much looking forward to receiving my photobook, the online process is very simple and much easier than others I have used. If it's as good as the ones that I saw at the Photography Show last week, when it arrives, I'll be delighted!
Customer review from 29.03.2017

Customer review from 29.03.2017
Fast and easy to use software, very impressed with the prices and how you can customise everything on and in the photobook. Will be see after recieving my item whether or not I will suggest this to others (but looks like I will)
Customer review from 29.03.2017
I saw the advertising for the photobook on Facebook and had printed one for myself. Amazing photographic quality, amazing colours, really happy with it! Will definitely have some other prints from here :)
Amy on 28.03.2017
Sooo...I copied my sister (Rachel Collings) and made a photobook! All my fab photos from Vietnam and Cambodia are now in an absolutely gorgeous book made by saal-digital. Part of the offer meant posting a review, so... my book arrived after only a few days! The quality is outstanding and the range of options amazing. It took quite a while to design as the software package that is downloaded from the site gives so many options. So if you're like me and things need to be perfect you're going to get a bit obsessed by it. This means though, that the end results are very personal and allows every project to be entirely different. To sum it up i've created a timeless photobook of the highest quality as an amazing reminder of a truly amazing holiday! So much better than printing single stills or just leaving them sat on the computer where no one can see them. Would definitely recommend and likely use them again. Saal Digital UK

Customer review from 25.03.2017
Excellent service, few software tweeks needed but all good
Stephen on 24.03.2017
Great product, extremely pleased with the quality of the printing and the colour rendition, it couldn't have been any better. I will be recommending you to camera club, friends and professional colleagues and will be using this book to showcase my work, thank you
Customer review from 24.03.2017
Repetitive offers for certain formats but not others are irritating. Given the competition, although Saal offer a quality product, it is at a cost and the company appear rather complacent in their communications.
Martinique on 24.03.2017
Extremely please with the book ordered software was really easy to navagate and use. Looking forward to placing my next order
Sarah on 23.03.2017
Thanks for the opportunity to try and review your photobooks. I have been really impressed by the colour rendition and heavyweight quality of the finished product, all delivered in four working days.
Mark on 23.03.2017
We were looking for a high quality small size book that could reflect the impact of the images we produce on larger scale products. Saal hit the spot with premium stock and options for covers. It is great to have a one stop shop for product. Can see Saal as an option for future projects.
rob on 23.03.2017
excellent quality paper, and very pleased with the quality of images and printing. I will be ordering from saal again, for book printing and poster prints, highly recommended.
Joao on 22.03.2017
Really impressed with the quality of the photobook as well as how easy it was to put it together on the (Mac) app. I've used the £40 voucher to create a photobook of a colourful series I'm doing on my Instagram account (instagram.com/jpescada). The result is 48 beautiful glossy photos in a nice package that I can use to show my work to potential clients, delivered in under a week. I highly recommend this service if to anyone on the market for digital printing services. Thank you guys!
carol on 22.03.2017
fantastic service! really impressed with the quality of the book. delivery time was brilliant, despite coming from Germany to Scotland, it only took a few days! well done Saal !!
Customer review from 22.03.2017
Cant fault the service at all!! software is simple to use, Delivery processing and packaging all top notch!!
Customer review from 22.03.2017
I took advantage of the £40 offer on Facebook Really surprised at how the good the book was, vibrant colours and very well made. The software is easy to use and the communication was excellent, package tracked all the way. Processing time was exceptional and shipping from Germany to Scotland only took a few days! overall really impressed, and have already ordered more books for myself and friends!
Pete on 22.03.2017
I have had 5 or 6 Photo-books in the past from various online sites but this takes the top No.1 spot, The finish of both the front and back covers is great and the glossy paper option has made my images stand out with loads of detail and plenty of contrast, the book/page layout is great if you have a photo that you want to lay across both pages it's a nice lay flat view (see pic 4), as you can see from the other photo's below the colour and detail is second to none, Overall I am very impressed with this book and the speed that it was delivered, from the very easy to use software which has a lot of editing options included, in the book being delivered to my door it only took 5 days including a weekend, I would give my overall experience with this company as 10/10 (and I don't usually give 10 out), So I can totally recommend them, Thanks Saal Digital UK for a fantastic product, sure I will be back in the future.

Akintayo on 21.03.2017
Very Easy To Use.......I love it. There is nothing to fault about it. Thanks.
Customer review from 20.03.2017
Totally worth it! Very easy software to use, high quality of product, absolutely satisfied! Highly recommended to everyone!
Customer review from 20.03.2017
I was extremely pleased with the service that I received and the quality of the photobook is brilliant. I found the software easy to use and from ordering to delivery was 4 days which was including over the weekend. I had applied for the £40 voucher in return for an honest review and all I can say is I plan to use the service again to have my final college portfolio printed as the quality is second to none.
Ellis on 20.03.2017
Very easy to operant once got the hang of the software. Very high quality and great communication. Would recommend to everyone
Customer review from 20.03.2017
I was another who applied for a £40 photobook voucher, which was gratefully received. The software took a little getting used to, which I feel is normal with any new software. I used a panorama for the centre picture spreading across a double page but I was aware that a double spread could be problematic, hence my choice, which worked quite well. I chose a padded cover for the photobook, with my own picture, which I was extremely pleased with as I thought it may cause a few problems...but no, the quality was much better than I have had with other suppliers, as were the inner pages. There was a slight hiccup with the final production as one of my pages, for some odd reason was turned around from portrait into landscape, which REALLY didn't work! Saal were happy to rectify this and I'm awaiting the replacement. Extremely happy with the quality, even with the initial error.
Customer review from 19.03.2017
This is my second book from you. Both are examples of my work. Looking forward to doing more business with you selling these books. Your site is so easy to use and your delivery and service is absolutely fab. The books are just amazing. Pure quality. Thank you
Customer review from 19.03.2017
This is my second review on the same subject, the photobook. I have now shown this book to many friends and family, all are equally impressed by the quality of the print, the finish, the whole overall appearance of the product - it's just so professional. I am now waiting for a piece of wall art to be sent to me, if it's half as good as the photobook was, I know that i'll be back for more. I will happily review the wallart on FB once I receive it.
Edvinas on 19.03.2017
The app is vey easy to use and it doesn't lag. Created my album in minutes. Looking forward to seeing the results!
LORRAINE on 19.03.2017
Pleasantly surprised at how quick delivery was! Wasn't disappointed with my photobook either. Super quality - fabulous colour! Loved the padded cover and the extra thick pages. A joy to look at and a fabulous product to show off my pet photography images to potential customers. Highly recommended.
Paul on 17.03.2017
Very happy with the quality of my photobook. I chose to put a single photo across a double page and unfortunately it didn't work to well with my photos. (Birds). Still happy with the quality and service provided.
Iracy on 17.03.2017
Quality is great, I absolutely loved it but the only bad thing is that it took longer that I expected to arrive, I trusted the date that it was saying in the website but it took a bit longer, so i missed some interviews because i could not go without my portfolio, a part of that everything was good, great customer service and amazing quality of the product
Jason on 17.03.2017
I was really pleased with the service and product that you provided me. The photobook has been printed to a high quality. Ordering (once i got the hang of the software) was very easy. It was delivered quickly and looks really nice. I agreed to write an honest review in exchange for a discount voucher. However, I would be more than happy to use your services again, I am extremely pleased with the whole process and the results you have created. I look forward to working with you again. Many thanks.
Customer review from 16.03.2017
I applied for a £40 voucher to design a photobook with @saal_digital UK. Although I wasn't too keen of the software at first and wished it could have been web-based, I got my head around the designing very quickly. My main concern was, how good is the quality really going to be? I prepared a 30-page photobook of my Migratewithme travel photography project hoping for the best. Lucky me, I was nothing but impressed! The order was sent to their printer in Germany and the final product came within a week! The quality is outstanding - as is the whole service. In a nutshell: A brilliant product at an accessible price, even without the voucher. Would I recommend? Absolutely. 10/10.
Gary on 16.03.2017
I received a Photo Book and I am very impressed with quality, service and communication with Saal Digital. Software: It took me about 10-15 minutes to become familiar with the software, after which I found it easy to use. Turnaround: My Photo Book was printed and dispatched the day after my order, and arrived quickly. Service: Saal Digital responded very quickly, efficiently and friendly a to any questions I had. They also have a Facebook site, which again offers a great response time and friendly manner. I am a professional photographer and photography training provider and I would have no hesitations in recommending Saal Digital to my customers and friends.
Stuart on 16.03.2017
Very user friendly software for uploading my shots and creating my photobook. Beautiful quality with deep colour saturation on all my images. My only drawback was the delivery time (held up at customs apparently) but after a few emails it was all sorted and my photobook arrived. This certainly wouldn't stop me from ordering again or highly recommending SAAL-Digital. Many thanks guys.
Dan on 15.03.2017
excellent service !! highly recommended !!
Customer review from 15.03.2017
Very easy to use, fantastic software. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to showcase their work in the form of a book. Hundreds of options to choose - from layouts to font makes extremely to look unique and make it your own. You even have the choice of designing the book and cover. Will most certainly use the software again for my publishing needs.
jimmy on 15.03.2017
Produced an Absolutely stunning book of my street photography The service was superb from start to finish The only reason i didn't give it full marks is that there could be more page template options and maybe a way to keep the text on a page if you want to delete the image but a very small detail when all else is so good I have actually had 3 orders from my prototype book Thank you Saal i will be back a lot more
Eoin on 14.03.2017
Great quality
Customer review from 14.03.2017
Just received my photobook from Saal Digital and it's absolutely fantastic. The overall look and feel of it is to a very high professional standard. Prints were nice and clear with the colours to perfection. Ordered the padded covers which gave it a much more expensive and quality feel. Will definitely be ordering again in the near future, very highly recommended product, thank you. Arrived within 5 working days, well packaged and in pristine condition.
Graham on 14.03.2017
I took advantage of a free softbook and I have to say,the service,speed and quality was first class,can whole heartedly recommend.
Customer review from 11.03.2017
The books are beautiful and the quality is outstanding. I will be using again. However, I feel that being a wedding photographer, more page layouts should be available for different size photographs, as looking through the book, when there are 2 landscape photos, one on each page, there is a large gap above or below the photos. So it just looks like an empty space. I also think the background detail should be more accessible from the panel when editing the books, and available to add. If it is, it isn't very easy to access during editing. On a less serious and much more happier note, after showing your photo-book and my original photo book from a different company to 2 clients, they have both chosen your photobook, as the pictures are more high resolution, sharper, clearer, and the quality of the pages are amazing!
Martin on 10.03.2017
My order arrived after 6 days of placing, considering this was ordered on a Friday and was received on the following Thursday very quick turnaround. The parcel was well packaged and protected. The printing on the glossy cover was a very high standard, on opening the cover the pages that followed were of a very high standard and if I am honest considering the price of the product, far exceeded my expectations. I certainly recommend this company, five stars across the board, communication, ease of use, product quality, turnaround.
Customer review from 09.03.2017
Printed a book with the facebook offer, quality is outstanding as is the whole service. very impressed. Decent couriers used as well which always helps, Highly recommended.
Customer review from 09.03.2017
I answered an ad on Facebook offering a £40 voucher for a photobook from Saal Digital UK. I have to say that I was very impressed from start to finish. The software you need to download is fairly instinctive to use and doesn't hide any of the costs from you. I prepared a 30 page portfolio type photo book complete with the company logo on the front cover and the front and back of my business card on the back cover in a couple of hours, most of which was deliberating over which pictures to use. The order was sent to their printer in Germany on the Saturday, by Wednesday it had been delivered. I really cannot praise them enough, a brilliant product at a brilliant price, even without the voucher.

Customer review from 08.03.2017
printed TWO BOOKS with SAAL and both have been of the highest quality. I am absolutely delighted.
Lee-Ann on 08.03.2017
Thank you very much for such an awesome photobook. I'm really impressed with the quality of the book in every way, the colours the binding everything. The support and service during the process was amazing too. The software was fairly easy to use but I'm not used to that sort of thing so did battle a bit in places but go there eventually. I was delighted at how quickly the book arrived. It's the first time I've printed any of my images so the anticipation was huge and I was certainly not let down with the prompt delivery and with such an amazing product.
Customer review from 08.03.2017
I ordered a photobook for a wedding portfolio to show clients and I am very happy with the product. The software is easy to download and use, with a lovely variety of designs. I ordered the book one evening last week and was surprised to get an email the following morning to say it had already been despatched. The quality is absolutely fantastic, lovely padded cover, sharp images and brilliant colours. These would make beautiful wedding albums and I will be ordering again! Thank you
saralee on 08.03.2017
where to start! Im a freelance photographer who has up until now got work through word of mouth, I had Saal-digital recommended to me from a fellow photographer and thought it would be a great opportunity to create a look book for potential clients. From initial contact the service has been A1 throughout, promp replies and all the help I needed. The software was easy to use and so many choices, (really surprised by this) My book arrived today (uberfast!) and its just perfect!! So professional it really is a quality product. The colours are so vibrant! my photography is quite colourful to say the least and in past experience Ive received bland colours that have lost their vibrancy. No so with saal, the colours, tones everything is spot on. I would highly recommend them - awesome quality product!!!
Nigel on 08.03.2017
An excellent service and end product. I would like to be able to sell product through you to a wider audience but understand that is not available at present. However what you do is excellent and the quality of the print is fantastic, the software easy to use and manipulate and the service and time to delivery second to none. Thank you. I have already had a second draft book published by you.
Customer review from 07.03.2017

My photobook is of extremely high quality. The paper used is very good and the prints look fantastic. The software you provide to make the book was very easy to understand and very versatile at the same time. I really enjoyed the process of making the book, which can sometimes be a daunting task. The book was delivered very quickly too. All in all, a top quality service and product that I will be recommending to friends to use. Thank you.

Customer review from 05.03.2017
So my photobook has arrived from @saal_digital and my goodness I cannot believe how brilliant this is! Aside from the astronomically swift and attentive service, this has to be the best example of its kind. Firstly, the software; to create your book you are required to download some free software from the website which enables you to do, to be honest, pretty much anything you like in terms of layout, size, colours, background, fonts. For my purposes I went for one photo per full page. The software is easy to use and, very handily, gives an indication of image quality - saving any disappointment when the product turns up. The book itself oozes quality in that even the lowest-priced paper option feels weighty and picks up all the colours, and there is an array of extras such as glossy paper instead of matt, or the removal of a barcode. I went for neither of these options; however, I did opt for the padded cover which I would say absolutely is worth the extra couple of quid. Every person who has picked it up has paused to admire the feel of it and it gives that extra hint of professionalism to make it stand out. Whether or not you go for padded or flat though, just flicking through the book once you can tell it's built to last. All in all I think that this is, as metioned earlier, is one of the best of its kind, and I will be purchasing another. Brilliant for gifts, wedding photos or portfolios, etc. Very pleased to have come across saal-digital!
Sam on 03.03.2017
The photobook I received in the post today was extremely good quality. the turnaround time was very fast too. The print quality is excellent and the book looks very professional. i would definitely use this service again and have already recommended it to friends to use. Top quality thank you.
Penny on 03.03.2017
I recently created photo book having received a £40 voucher in return for a product review for @saal_digital. Really pleased with the end result, a beautifully made album with layflat pages which allowed me to incorporate many of my favourite pictures of our grandson. I chose a square book with glossy pages (next time I would like to try the matte pages). The software for creating the books is simple to use with many templates to chose from. I designed a few double spreads myself when I couldn't find a template to suit - again this was very easy to do. Definitely would recommend this product - quality finish and very quick turnaround, can not fault customer service either as I was a little slow to use my voucher and they were kind enough to extend validity for me. #photoalbum #productreview #saaldigital #grandson #snaphappynana
Customer review from 03.03.2017
A few weeks ago I applied for, and was successful in receiving, a voucher towards a Saal Digital book. I have had several years experience of producing photo books and have got quite used to using another program, so I was unsure how I would get on with a new system. Well I have to say it was simplicity itself, it downloaded easily and the method for creating the book was very easy indeed, meaning it look much less time to create than with the other program. I selected the thinker pages, A4 size and glossy in order to test out the product. I uploaded and waited, it only took 1 day before I had notification that it had been printed and dispatched and a further three days to arrive, excellent. I was very excited to open the package and I have to say I was blown away with the quality of the product, the images just jump out of the page and they show off my photographs to their very best. One fabulous feature is the lie flat pages, meaning you can display panoramic images across two pages. Yes the book will cost more than my other books, like for like, and there will be occasions when the cheaper option may be appropriate, however, I am so delighted with Saal digital that I will be very likely to use Saal Digital again and can highly recommend them, especially if you need that something a bit special. In the video I have tried to show a selection of pages, along with some indication of the thickness of the pages. This is the first time I have created a video for Facebook and I am aware that the quality may not show off the product at its very best but I think, I hope, you will get an idea of the quality of the book. You will find a post on Instagram as follows:- https://www.instagram.com/p/BRLUuK4gqr4/ A link to my Facebook page, which includes a video, as follows:-https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10155303492762345&id=785707344 And a review on my FB business page as follows:-https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=621713374680025&substory_index=0&id=447104758807555
Heather on 02.03.2017
Having purchased photobooks from other companies I was interested to see what Saal Digital had to offer. I found some of the software difficult to get around, I wanted to add text but couldn't find the option until it was too late. I went for the A4 landscape book with about 28 pages, none of the fancy extras like padded cover or presentation box. Having received a trial voucher I was really amazed that all I had to pay was £2.15! I got an email within 24 hours of uploading to say it was on its way from Germany to the UK....I didn't expect to see it any time soon. It's just arrived, less than a week after being created! I'm thrilled with the high quality card used for the prints...it certainly knocks the other photobooks out of the ball park! Fantastic...Many thanks
Customer review from 01.03.2017

Wendy on 28.02.2017
Absolutely overjoyed with the quality of the photobook. The software to create my photobook was easy to use with a choice of layouts. The delivery time was exceptional. The overall quality of the product is amazing, I am thrilled at the quality and the finish on the prints is wonderful. Will highly recommend for sure. Thank you
Rob on 27.02.2017

Customer review from 27.02.2017
Photobook arrived today, quality is outstanding. Highly recommend your products for superior quality and cost.
Customer review from 27.02.2017
Today I have received a photo book from Saal. The service was very easy to use and the online software to upload images really straightforward to understand. The order was printed quickly as it was posted within a few days of the upload and arrived at my home address in 4 days from dispatching. The quality of the final product is excellent and the colours in the photobook are outstanding, my only disappointment was my own fault, a couple of black and white still life shots were a bit of a disappointment, bad choice on my part as a wedding photograph, in black and white is beautiful. So it down to careful selection on my part, lesson learn't. The final product is very much a quality one. I would definitely recommend Saal and use them again and look forward to trying out some of their other products.Excellent product and excellent service, highly recommended.
Scott on 27.02.2017
Thank you Saal Digital - The photobook was excellent! I have compiled an honest review as a Wedding Photographer available here: https://weddingphotographeryeovil.co.uk/saal-digital-uk-photobook-review/
Anurag on 24.02.2017
Thank you Saal for making the album. The software was very easy to use. The quality of photos is very nice, even though there was no calibration done between software and PC. Nice packing and timely delivery of the album. In my opinion its worth the money and i shall be using the same in future as well. I strongly recommend Saal for any one who wants to have memories stored on canvas!!! Thanks you very much again!!!
Customer review from 23.02.2017
This is my second book with you. As a Digital Scrapbook Designer it is important that the products I use to showcase my work for customers is the very best quality and I am thrilled to say I feel I have finally found a printing service that provides wonderful quality and brilliant value. Thank you.
Garry on 21.02.2017
Excellent product and excellent service, highly recommended.
Iszak on 20.02.2017
I am VERY satisfied with Saal Design and It is very easy to use, I shall be using this software to take my photography business even further. I would refer this software to other people as they have to know about it!! Very much looking forward to create other one for my personal and business use. Kind Regards Iszak
Chester on 19.02.2017
Fantastic service, will be using a lot in the coming months.
Simon on 19.02.2017
As a wedding photographer and most of my clients wanting photo-books, I thought I would give Saal a try. I'm very happy that they don't limit the file size especially when printing A3 books. A lot of other companies limit your file size and hence you don't get the full quality of resolutions. I want to use all of my 42.2 MP so thank you Saal. The Prints, pages, delivery and customer services are excellent. My review is based on the Matt version, but i'm now ordering a glossy one and I'm sure it will be the same quality.
Sue on 19.02.2017
I got married in jan and wanted a memento of our day as it was small affair we didnt have a photographer so i set to with my camera tripod and remote release, I used saal as i had saw some fab reviews, uploading the photos was easy and also the ability to rotate and alter the image to fit the page was an easy process, and you get to review before sending your order, The book is hardbacked and no advertising anywhere to be seen, Hi quality printing and superb gift box i will definietly use saal digital again for all my photo needs. thank you so much x
Customer review from 18.02.2017
Photobooks review. Disclosure: I was offered a voucher that paid for this book in exchange for an honest review. I don't have much previous experience of using other professional printing services. I downloaded SAAL's software to design the book. It seemed a bit clunky and overly complex to use at first but actually once I'd done a couple of pages was pretty quick and easy. Although maybe there could be some kind of auto configuration for the gift market where the customer simply uploads X number of pictures and it simply puts the book together automatically, maybe with a couple of options. The product overall is really nice. Very sharp printing with excellent colour reproduction. The book itself is also excellent nice thick pages that open completely flat. There was some minor damage to the spine of my book caused in transport. SAAL were excellent and sent a replacement without any quibble. Although this still had very very minor damage in the same place, no doubt also caused in transit. Maybe the packaging could be a little better? Overall I would recommend and I intend to buy another in the future.
Alan on 17.02.2017
I recently ordered a photo book from Saal Digital which was delivered to the UK four working days from submitting the order... excellent service! I am delighted with the finished product which has been produced using quality materials, my images printed on a heavyweight matte paper which produced the colour and definition I hoped for. I am now planning my next order but using the inside of front and back cover for text rather than images. The book is superb for panoramas across two open pages.... the design allowing the book to open flat with no crease down the centre. I have no hesitation in recommending this company to reproduce your work using their superb book manufacturing facility ( my book has generated a lot of interest/enquiries at my local Camera Club ) Many thanks and kind regards. 10/10
Aaron on 16.02.2017
Overall I was very satisfied with the service. I would have liked the option to add the templates to multiple pages at a time instead of one by one in the software but that's my only issue. The quality of the prints are superb and the service was very good, extremely quick from start to finish and I'm now waiting for my wall art to turn up.
Customer review from 16.02.2017
I am a professional photographer and a fan of the photo book personally so it is really important to me time wise to have a program that is quick and easy to use. This was both! Preparing the photo book was simple with lots of effects, finishes and designs available to use. Photos uploaded quickly and I was able to move them around with ease. The book arrived within a week of ordering which was also a real pleasant surprise. The book felt and looked great quality with thick pages, and a really vibrant feel. The images for the first half of the book were really strong but did seem to taper off slightly towards the end seemingly less sharp but that may have been due to the glossy finish I chose and also probably not noticeable to anyone else. It would not detract from me using the company again and I would definitely recommend this company / product.
Glen on 16.02.2017
I decided to try out Saal Digital to print out my design portfolio, trick here is to take the time to take their advice and choose their colour profile and convert your images to said profile, I ordered on a Tuesday and today Thursday the folio has been delivered, I cannot express just how impressed I am fully, other than to say it's fantastic! The colours are exactly what I hoped for, and it's printed on very thick paper, my folio looks stunning, something to feel really proud of, I will definitely use Saal Digital again! A special mention must be said about their superb customer service, I had a voucher to help me, and it expired I had just lost my wife, and they immediately extended the voucher, I've never dealt with such polite and helpful friendly people before, they made the whole experience Excellent! And now I have a great looking designers folio, that will be a pleasure to show to prospective clients :) 11/10 these guys are fantastic!
Customer review from 14.02.2017
I ordered an A4 landscape book. The quality of the photo book is excellent with amazing colour, tone and clarity for each of the photographs which accurately reflected the detail and colour on my PC. I particularly liked the lay-flat design which allows one to include double page panoramas. The printed pages are also thicker than normal which gives the book a more luxurious feel. The turn around time on the service from point of order to delivery is excellent as was the protective packaging used. Pricing is competitive and it was easy to see at every stage what the final product cost would be. I would like to have the option to include a first and last leaf page so that the first image is not printed on the inside of the cover. I assume you could leave the first and last page blank. I would also like to be able to share the book electronically either via own website or through dropbox and for others to be able to view and buy, if permission is granted, directly from Saal. I would definitely order other books and products from Saal.

Simply excellent! Got a book made of some of my Herdwick Sheep Artworks to show clients and art shop owners. Software was easy to use. Would definitely recommend to other artists and photographers. Thank You Saal.

The photo book i received from saal is amazing quality and the website is easy to navigate as is their software. I already have people asking me if i can get them one printed so i will definitely be back for more. Thank you
Simon on 06.02.2017
I have just received a photo book from Saal. The service was very easy to use and the online software to upload images really intuitive and straightforward to understand. The order was printed quickly as it was posted within a few hours of the upload and arrived at my home address in three days from dispatching. The quality of the final product is excellent and the colours in the photobook are outstanding. The final product is very much a quality one. I would definitely recommend Saal and use them again and look forward to trying out some of their other products. Thank you for the quality of finish and speedy service.

Customer review from 04.02.2017
Saal digital is now my ONLY place to have photobooks designed. The software is a dream to use. It's so easy to place images and then alter them. The quality of the books is outstanding. Thick, stiff pages that you know will not tear or damage easily. The pages I have always ordered are in the matte effect. These still produce a luxurious feel and look to them. As for delivery each photobook is sent through DHL so you know that it is secure and I've found that the books usually reach me within a week of ordering.
David on 03.02.2017
Great quality, easy to use software. Slight delay in delivery service, whether it is with DHL, Parcelforce probably needs sreamlined. Apart from this excellent.
Customer review from 01.02.2017
Simply excellent! Hardest part was selecting the images to use. Software was easy to use. Would definitely recommend to other photographers. Thank You Saal.
Juan on 29.01.2017
I was very surprised when I received my photo book. It was less time I expected. The team helped me to reset my password after 1 month out of date for the voucher promotion. The result is amazing, the quality, the colors, laminations. Everything is perfect. I am really glad to recommend them and hopefully work together with new customers. Thanks a lot
Dan on 27.01.2017
Print quality, delivery time, software = fantastic
David on 25.01.2017
I am a professional golf trip photographer and have tried a few companies in the UK, some good some not so good - service and quality. This is my second order through SAAL and have to say the quality is simply outstanding. My main market is in the United State and Canada who as you can imagine expect high quality and they are not disappointed. The new season is about us with more orders to come in 2017. Thank you SAAL.
Customer review from 24.01.2017
I have just received my first photobook from Saal of one of my weddings and I am super impressed with it. The colours and the quality of the prints and the paper is outstanding, it looks completely amazing. I would definitely recommend this product to friends. I found the design software really easy and quick to use. There was flexibility in the templates which I really liked. The speed of manufacture does not impede on the quality of the finished product and Saal kept me informed on progress via regular emails. Overall super satisfied!
Fam on 23.01.2017
I'm a professional photographer, site recommend by fellow photographer. I have tried several companies for photobooks from cheap to expensive ones. I found Saal easy to use and simple to create books. There is good selection of sample backgrounds, layouts plus a tool that lets you know image quality is suitable for print. I included a range of images within the book, black and white as well as colour and used a variety of layouts. Number of different options on books and paper quality and real time price guide as you add or remove pages. The software was easy to install and fantastic to use. Best feature I liked was the auto populate pages, then you can add or remove images, or start with a blank page.
Attila on 22.01.2017
I'm a professional wedding photographer. I tried many companies and I work with one many years ago. They top albums better quality than the Saal made, but for the price what the Saal offer just amazing. The softwer much better what I used before, easy adjust the borders with the help lines. I placed the order on Saturday and the album was in my hand on Thursday. Great service! I already recommended for friends. I will stick with the saal for my family albums.
Customer review from 21.01.2017
Very impressed with the software to create the book and the finished article, Certainly wouldn't hesitate to use them again.
Customer review from 20.01.2017
I am very impressed with the quality and service. Very good printing, true colours, thick glossy paper. Software is very easy to use but I would like more designs and colour changing options. Ordered it as my mini portfolio looks really classy. It all took only 6 days from the moment I started to design my photobook to the moment I got it from a courier. Certainly will recommend Saal to all my friends artists.
Customer review from 19.01.2017
Easy to create a superb quality photobook with ease.
Mike on 19.01.2017
Other photobook software usually give a separate Cover/Back cover option so that you can put a photo on it or leave it blank, your software includes it in the pages build so (totally my own fault for not paying attention) I thought the first "page" was the inside cover but it turned out that it printed on the actual book cover which I wanted left blank, but hey-ho my mistake and I have to suck it up. Having said that, this photobook is outstanding, the pages are a beautiful gloss finish and each page is very thick and oozes quality. I paid an extra £5 to have a padded cover and it's well worth doing as it gives the book a lovely classy feel and the free layflat option is amazing letting you see any photo that stretches across two pages in full without the normal interruption of a fold. Overall I would give SAAL photobooks 10/10 for quality and service, just beware when building your book and remember the first two pages are actually the hardback cover.
Lili on 18.01.2017
I was really impressed when I received and opened my photo book!
Suman on 18.01.2017
It's really easy to use saal's software. wonderful . I am loving it.
Tony on 17.01.2017
Quick delivery time on the first order and amazing product quality. I would have no hesitation recommending to every one.
Customer review from 17.01.2017
Used them for a 40th anniversary photo album for my partners parents, the quality and service was excellent and I cannot mark them down on anything. For a product that is so inexpensive the quality is faultless
Ollie on 16.01.2017
I just cannot fault these guys, I was in awe when I received the photobook from Saal. It certainly did my work a great justice printed at A3 size on high quality gloss paper to suit my nightscape work. The lay flat binding is second to none meaning panoramas are shown in all their glory. The front cover extremely high quality and protective. All in all the product matched its cost (£140) and you really can see how high end it is compared to other photobook suppliers (especially ones i have used in the past). It is a stunning visual masterpiece that will grace the gallery where my work is displayed for the rest of this year displaying what can be achieved with my work to a high standard.

Lovely quality books where the flat lay works so well with planning the layout of the book.
Suman on 16.01.2017
I'm literally happy with product quality and service of Saal digital.
Customer review from 16.01.2017
Well pleased with the booklets After I initially messed up the order everything was sorted
Marie on 16.01.2017
Once you've downloaded Saal's own software, which is quite easy to use it didn't take too long to put the photobook together. The hardest part tbh was choosing the images . Once finished I added it to my cart and it uploaded straight to Saal very quickly, this was at 9.30pm... By 11am the following morning I had an email to say it was shipped. WOW My book arrived on Saturday 4 days after ordering, I can't complain about service or delivery, erythromycin impressive . and neither about the quality of the book. Its stunning.. Ive been looking for a format and a photobook that i would be happy to pass on to my customers so quality was foremost in my mind.. I went for the hardback cover and lustre (matt) images as my prints are normally printed on fine art paper so I thought lustre would be best for my images.. the pages are nice and thick and the colours vibrant and true to my images tbh my images have really popped and come alive in this book. My only bug is that there was no first leaf page, so my first image is printed on the inside of the cover. In hindsight it's the only thing I'd change. I'm very happy with the quality of the photobook and I'd definitely use #SaalDigital again. (And have already done so since reviewing my first book) Thank you again to Saal Digital UK for a fabulous product. Received my next 4 books today, I have very happy customers.
Ash on 09.01.2017
Found the Facebook advert £40 offer, used the voucher towards a test wedding album, excellent quality and service through out. Paper quality was great and images printed well, binding wasn't bad either and very well priced. Will definitely use services in near future.
Richard on 07.01.2017
Great products with fantastic quality. absolutly wonderful.
Customer review from 05.01.2017
Rarely rarely do I write reviews/leave feedback.. however, the world needs to know about Saal Digital. Absolutely astounded. Was recommended by a friend who had some LF Prints sent over to Scotland for a gallery, so decided to get a Wedding Anniversary album done, and I have to admit, for the price, and book size/style.etc I was sceptical at the price I was quoted on the Mac Desktop App, then the book arrived and my jaw dropped. I am in the process of writing an article about your services for my site (www.thehudsonstudio.com) - to let as many people as possible know about your work. Have just ordered a large 28x28 book for a band I toured with a few times in 2016 as a late Christmas present for the 5 of them, and I simply cannot wait to see their faces. I will of course be using your services for future clients, and hopefully weddings should I get into that area. 10/10. Incredible Products.

Saal Digital UK Photobook Customer Review I found an advert on Facebook - a £40 voucher for a photobook in a 14 day period, in exchange for a review. The design software is quick and simple to install and very easy to use. There is good selection of sample backgrounds, layouts plus a tool that lets you know image quality is suitable for print. I included a range of images within the book, black and white as well as colour and used a variety of layouts. I chose a matt hardback cover that was ideal for my chosen cover image; inside pages were of good quality gloss reasonably heavy paper. Book opens flat, images are printed to edge of pages as well as across gutter allowing you to effectively use the page area. I chose not to add any text on inside pages but the facility was available if required. Delivery to UK was really quick considering it was over the Christmas period. The book was well packaged and quality of final product was outstanding. Overall I was very impressed with SAAL; excellent user experience, speed of production and final product.
Customer review from 05.01.2017
I was really impressed with the quality of the photo album sample I ordered, and the software is so easy to use to create a beautiful layout. It's a great value option for wedding photography for couples on a budget but without compromising on quality
Customer review from 05.01.2017
I was very impressed to receive my leather album. I wanted to order a small, stylish album that a bride or groom could put in a handbag to use when meeting friends for coffee. Rather than showing their wedding pictures to friends from a phone this is the perfect solution. Sleek, modern with lay flat pages I am very happy indeed. The leather and design of the album are brilliant. I have already had great feedback on it and I look forward to purchasing an album for clients. Thank you Saal-Digital
Customer review from 02.01.2017
About a week ago i was reading through my Facebook feed when i noticed an AD that grabbed my attention, it was from a company called Saal Digital, a print company & they were looking for people to review their photobooks the deal was they send you a photobook to the value of £40 in exchange for an honest review of what you thought about the product. This was perfect timing for me, i had been in the market for a book of some kind to display all my favourite work for that year, with plans to do one each preceding year to build up a collection of books to look back on in years to come and see how i have progressed as a photographer. When I received the book I was so impressed with the quality of the book and the digital images!! I was so taken by the product that I showed all my family and friends who where also impressed!! Since ordering the book as a trial I have ordered a photo print to hang on my wall. I have received the print and all I can say is OMG what a print and it was packaged really well!! The whole process was very quick in the time of ordering to the time to receive the product. I will be using this company for all my photo's and in the near future for my business! Thank you Saal your digital products are awesome!! Rie Ramsey-Charles
Rana on 02.01.2017
My photo book order was matt finish lay flat A4 book. The photo-book arrived on time. The quality of the printing was beyond my expectations. I downloaded the Colour Setting for my Mac from your website which helped me determined the colours and the contrast on my Mac screen. Very handy! The SAAL book design software was good but it was a bit slow on my Mac other than that, I’m extremely pleased with the product and the service.
David on 02.01.2017
Beautiful interface in creating a photobook. Very simple, lovely options to choose from. Outstanding :)
Customer review from 02.01.2017
The software was easy to use . Plenty of templates to choose from . Print quality was brilliant and had the product delivered quickly . Love it. Thanks
Andrew on 30.12.2016
Can only comment so far on the design stage for the photobook, there are plenty of options to ensure the you are going to get something that is really easy to design or give you a design that is truly unique. The software is intuitive and very easy to use and again deciding on the option at the start the design stage can take anything from a few minutes to however much time you want to put into it, personally I have probably spent a total of eight hours putting my book together. A quick word on customer service, I was contacted a couple of times whilst in deign to ask if everything was okay.
Customer review from 29.12.2016
As a keen wildlife photographer I've used a number of printers and I have to say the quality was excellent thus resulting in a higher price than some other. I believe you get what you pay for. Customer service was first class, extremely helpful and quick when I had any issues. At first the software was a little difficult but once you get to grip with it you realise how easy it is to put the book together. Highly recommend many thanks
Customer review from 29.12.2016
Totally loved my finished product, which I found to be of great quality, and creating it was very easy to do with your software. I particularly liked having full control over where I could place my photos, and the fact I didn't have to upload them individually first. Communications were great, and prompt delivery too. Only change I would make personally would be to not print on the inside front and back covers as it seems a little strange - maybe that's an English thing though ;)
Rana on 28.12.2016
The printing quality was beyond my expectation. Very good service overall. One little minor comment is to improve the photobook software. On the mac it was a bit slow. Other than that, all is good. I' definitely, going to use the SAAL for photo printing - especially book printing.
Ed on 27.12.2016
Really impressed with the quality of the print. Nice thick pages that burst with colour. Lovely cover in really good quality. The software works nicely and allows me to design my spreads in indesign and upload them super easily. Other softwares arn't great for this! Quick turnaround. Reasonable price you can find cheaper of course but they won;t look as good as this!
Customer review from 26.12.2016
I really cannot rate Saal-digtal's Photobooks highly enough! I opted for a 52-page Photobook in 15cm x 21cm (A5 portrait) format, which provides 26 double-page spreads, plus cover. I opted for standard glossy card cover and matt finish internal pages. The software for designing the layout and uploading the photos was simple and easy to use, once I'd fathomed out a couple of small counter-intuitive features about layout control! The software's workflow is excellent and provides ample opportunity to review and amend your design at any time, whilst also providing a seamless transition into the actual ordering and uploading process. Once I'd placed the order, the company provided excellent communications regarding the progress and expected delivery date, which turned out to be spot on -- just one week from ordering, with most of that time accounted for by the slowness of mail deliveries from Germany. The final product was well packaged and arrived in pristine condition and its quality is absolutely superb. The binding process really does deliver a seamless centre fold, so that each double-page printing can carry a single image without detriment to the image. I deliberately chose a range of images taken from numerous cameras of varying image resolution and the quality differences between them remain obvious in the final printed product, demonstrating that there is no loss of image quality even for 42Mp high resolution images, which render in absolutely stunning detail on the high quality photographic paper used in the product. All in all, I am delighted with my experience of using Saal-digital and would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a high quality printed photographic product. They aren't cheap by cheap internet printing standards but the quality really is at professional standard and far exceeds anything I have seen from other companies.
Alberto on 23.12.2016
Just recived a photography book ordered on saal.digital.uk Stunning paper quality and fantastic prints I didn't lose any details on my photos ( a detail of full page attached in photo ) Easy setting up the page thanks for them software Good communication with customers service Fast delivery and reasonable prices Definitely I'll use again,and will recommend to my colleagues and friends to join them
Customer review from 23.12.2016
Received a Photobook on Monday (it was very quick - less than a week) and can’t express enough how I’m happy! The printing quality is absolutely superb, colors are just they suppose to be. I’m very grateful for the such amazing work!
Pei on 22.12.2016
I saw the free photo book offer on FaceBook and decided to give it a go! After I received my voucher code, I downloaded the software to my laptop, and searched out various photos to insert into the album. I was able to select a design, framing, colours etc, and selected photos for each page. It was quite easy, I only really struggled with the cover page as I wasn't able to upload a photo but left it as text in the end. The photo album arrived within a few days and I was impressed the package went through the letterbox without the need for the postman to knock on the door. The quality of the book is excellent, though I'm no expert...but the photos looked great. My sister in law asked if a professional photographer took the photos but they were taken either on my iPhone or my Canon cameras. So the print was definitely excellent! Thank you!!!
Customer review from 19.12.2016
What can I say. The quality if fantastic, it was easy to design and fast delivery. The photobooks make for a great portfolio. I will be ordering more. highly recommended!
Paul on 13.12.2016
I saw an offer on facebook for £40 off photobooks, and thought I that I've been meaning to get one printed to show my portfolio to prospective clients. The colours in the pictures were excellent - very vibrant. I loved the fact that the pages opened flat which allowed for 2 page spreads. The only negative I would say was that the front cover page was tucked under a bit too close to the opening edge. I've checked the software and there was no way I would have known that this would happen. However this is just something to bear in mind for the future. This photobook was a good quality and I would certainly use it for wedding "parents" albums. However I am yet to find a product of suitably high quality to use for the official wedding album. I didn't notice a premium range from this company.
Customer review from 13.12.2016
Loved the Photobook I just recieved - great quality of printing and materials. Just a couple of points - First the 'A4' photobooks aren't really A4 - although the size quoted in figures is accurate the landscape version is actually 15% smaller than A4, just something to be aware of! Also I couldn't find an easy way to move the photo within the template to frame it up .. you have to move the template edges and then move the picture which results in losing the exact layout often as not, it should be easier! A minor annoyance only though. All in all though an excellent product and I will use again with confidence.
Customer review from 09.12.2016
I ordered my book through the Facebook offer and was blown away by the quality of the product and the quality of service. I am about to start my own business and am very interested in becoming a reseller. Fantastic job guys.
Louisa on 07.12.2016
i saw the free photo book offer on Facebook, and as i was looking to create a portfolio of my most resent work, so i jumped at the chance. now i have created a few photo books over the past 6 years, as this seems to be the number one choice for wedding albums. I have always used the same company, but after reading some of the reviews i decided to give Saal ago. Downloading the software was easy enough, once got to grips with what everything did it wasn't to bad to use, but must admit i was a little disappointed with the templates, would liked to have a little more choice. And would like to see a full page preview of the book. Once i was happy i sent the order on the 28/11/16 it arrived on the 3/12/16. Once i opened the parcel i was pleased with the look and feel of the book, i went for the hardcover matte padded cover. I chose to have gloss print inside as i had a mix of colour and b&w, and i have to say i am very pleased with the results, the prints are sharp and clean and the paper quality is really good, also love the lay flat feature. I would defiantly use Saal again to print another portfolio.
Scott on 06.12.2016
Awesome service! Highly recommend
David on 06.12.2016
This is the first time I have used Saal and I was not disappointed!. I received my album in a reasonable time and I am very pleased with my album. The quality of production is stunning. The photo paper is of very high quality and has that laminated look which is superb. The photos are brilliant with vibrant colours. I will certainly be using Saal for any future albums and this album is the best I have seen by far. Many thanks to Saal!
Customer review from 06.12.2016
I was recently asked to produce a photobook for review and have to say that i was very impressed. The software was easy to use and once sent it took 3 day to arrive. the quality of the printing was fantastic and will be getting some more done soon.
karen on 06.12.2016
Wanting to produce a book to show case my recent work in a professional format i was delighted to find the ad on instagram to trial this product, after all who doesn't like 'free' things. It was easy and quick to download the software for the templates, i found it a little confusing to start with but quickly got the idea and had designed my 28 pages very quickly. The hardest part was choosing which work to include! The upload of my images was fast considering the image size and delivery of my book was within days. The book was delivered in ample packaging to keep the hard back cover from damage and i was blown away by the quality of the printed images! Not only where they crisp but the colours were the same as represented on my monitor! Amazing. The photo paper is nice and thick so gives a great feel to the pages as you turn them, it is a lay flat format and it does. I feel this to be a very high quality product that i will not hesitate to show to potential clients and to use during portfolio reviews. I highly recommend this product.
Customer review from 05.12.2016
The whole process has been an absolute joy to do. The software was so easy to download and you can adapt all the layouts or just use the ones provided which give your photobook a nice modern feel and not just the 4 to a page that you usually get. I love the range of page sizes and the ability to add text to anywhere in the book is also fantastic. Overall i am overjoyed at this product. I just can't wait to see it in person now!!
Customer review from 04.12.2016
I have always used Apple Photobooks but they changed their format making it too restricted for me. Luckily my niece recommended Saal and this is the third book I have done this year!
Gary on 02.12.2016
An excellent service and product. I was very impressed with the software which has a variety of templates and options giving a great deal of creative style when designing the book. The quality of the pages and printing is one of the best I have seen for a photobook and the colours were captured well. I have used a number over the years including the Apple books and this Saal book is far superior to the others and the Apple products in my opinion. The book arrived quickly. What more can I say - highly recommended by a Pro Photographer.
Customer review from 02.12.2016

Customer review from 02.12.2016
I have recently produced a photobook to showcase some of my amateur work, and I've got to say the customer service, website and software is fantastic. The software is so easy to use everything is clearly set out. I think the prices are amazing too. I haven't received my product yet as only submitted it yesterday but I love the fact it has a link to be able to keep up to date with the production of it. Brilliant. Will deffinatly be recommending to everyone I know. I will also write another review once I receive my photo book too.
Customer review from 30.11.2016
I am impressed with the easy to use software, the templates can be easily mixed and matched, and altered on the page which I did with a couple of pages and had no design issues, other than the pre-set image ratios of the boxes, which I couldn't seem to alter other than a single click zoom in/out. The speed of turnaround and delivery was very quick - uploaded late Tuesday - got delivery confirmation Thursday and received the book on Saturday! The book itself is a good quality , great hardback cover - however little disappointed there is no fly leaf.. Had I've known I may have changed first picture. I wanted to use this a demo of work for my pictures - however I did seem to have an issue with my "misty" morning purple hues - they just weren't there! and the overall the printing wasn't quite as vibrant as some printed copies of the same photo I had produced previously. However taking into account the ease, flexibility and price this is a very good option and I will probably use again for specific projects.
Dave on 30.11.2016
Incredibly easy to use - tools are superb and make life very easy. The final product is simply brilliant and a joy to look at. 2 very minor comments: Possibly make it clearer the cover photos are the outside cover not inside covers for first timers! The texture of the outside covers detracted from photos when light is at an angle...
Jonatas on 29.11.2016
Overall I like the photobook but one thing I am quite disappointed: the black and white photos look quite yellow toned, with a lack of bright white and contrast. Color photos look bright and good quality.
gill on 28.11.2016
Just received my photobook today, ordered on 23-11-16. Good timely turnaround. Photobook is brilliant quality will definitely be ordering again from SAAL
Customer review from 28.11.2016
As a regular buyer of photobook products I was initially wary of the free offer from SAAL. Having tried and tested products from many different suppliers, some very well known, I became disappointed in the varying quality of both the printed images and the materials used. Hence, for the past 5 five years I have remained with one reliable supplier only as I have found the software they provide as fairly easy to use and the standard of quality of the printed product has been constant time after time. Since this offer for a free trial seemed too good to turn down I went ahead and ordered it. I decided on a Photobook of size 19cm x 19cm with 26 matte pages, Leather Cream cover, unpadded. Just for the sake of saving time I used the basic ready-made templates within the SAAL software, which I must stress is a breeze to use. I used around a 100 images (of a wedding some years ago) to show a sample of my typical wedding coverage to prospective clients. I don’t have any sample photobooks to show to clients as the products I currently use are very expensive so this handy sized book will come in very useful. The SAAL product itself is very impressive and you can feel the quality before you even open it, just by just the finish of the cover itself. On opening the book for the first time I immediately scrutinised the binding as this ultimately proves the robustness and longevity of a book. I have been very disappointed with other manufacturers when it comes to this most critical part a books construction. The SAAL book was put through rigorous bending, opening and flicking pages back and forth (yes I was rough with it) without any concerns or visible crease failure. Under close inspection I am guessing that the production of this book is from one continuous roll of photo paper, which may explain its aversion to wear and tear. The heavy weight photo quality paper used produces true colours with black blacks and white whites (if that makes any sense), and also giving fine control of contrast. All in all I’m very impressed by the SAAL photobook and will certainly be ordering more in future and I cannot recommend them highly enough. I am very very choosey when it comes to books and SAAL wins hands down over the rest. Try them and see for yourself.
Gillian on 28.11.2016
Easy to use software and easy to design the book once I got the hang of it. Very quick to upload the images which is great. Only comment on the design would be the size as images had to be cropped or a border put round to fit to A4 size as that doesn't fit the dimensions of the original images. Well printed and bound book. Padded cover with images a nice extra.. Photo paper pages are nice and well bound together, pity I didn't try the extra thick pages though as this would have gave the pages more weight. Arrived quickly and well packaged. Happy with the book and would use again.

Good quality, easy and user friendly software. A bit pricey but I really like it. Delivery time was a good surprise. I may use this again for my travel books.

I ordered and paid for my photobook on Sunday evening, after using the easy to use software and dragging and dropping my photos onto the required pages, all very easy, the book was dispatched on the Monday morning, and received today, Friday. A brilliant service, and the book was top quality, and I will be using it this weekend to promote both our businesses. I will not hesitate to recommend your products and use your service again. Many Thanks Ben Williams Natural Encounters Photography

I feel that this survey / comments request is a little premature, I will do and submit a review of the software and its usability to facebook in due course, and will do a follow up review once the book is received. As I am the Editor, I would offer to put a review into the World Image Magazine ( www.worldimagemag.com ) but would need to access more of the products available. My review of the software and photobook will be published in the magazine. Best Regards Gordon Longmead

I recently took up offer to review a photobook with Saal Digital. Having seen a review in a photgraphy magazine I was interested to create and see what the quality was like with a view to using as sample portfolios. Firstly, the software is very simple to use and gives you plent of scope to be creative or, if you prefer, use templates provided. There are a multitude of options from cover types, sizes and print finishes so you are really spoilt for choice. I received my photobook within a few days of ordering and was mightily impressed with the quality and finish of the product. It is important to use their ICC profiles in your given photo editing software as I forgot one couple of images in soft-proofing and are a little darker than I would have liked but that is down to user error and not Saals printing. They are not the cheapest or the most expensive company for photo books but the very high quality is such that I will use them again in a professional capacity.
Customer review from 22.11.2016
Loved the photo book and plan to use it again soon. Love the fact the software allows you to drag and drop from a hard drive rather than upload it to the software. Highly recommended.
neil on 22.11.2016
Just received my photo book from Saal-Digital.co.uk and all I can say is I'm very happy. The quality of the whole book is superb and delivery was fast. I'll definitely be ordering more prints/books etc from Saal in the very near future. Thank you Saal for such great service.
Tamas on 21.11.2016
I ordered my first Photobook :) I read only positive comments, so i hope my book will be pro quality :)
Tomassco- Tomas on 20.11.2016
Recently i received my photobook .Totally pleased with it . The software is easy to download and install . The pages are very thick and heavy- they lay flat at the open page and do not bend . I will be using SAAL again !
Customer review from 16.11.2016
Recently I received the square photobook created by Saal Digital. I must say I was delighted with the quality of the photobook, thickness of pages and generally all book had a nice feel to it. I ordered matt finish for the book cover and pages and I think it looks stunning. The service was really good and book was created within one day and delivery was in a couple of days. The software was easy to use when you had a little play with it. I will be definitely using the company again.
Jon on 15.11.2016
I have just received my photo book which arrived very quickly. I was impressed with the software which is free to download and very easy to use. I am overjoyed at the quality of the finished album, it looks and feels very much a professional photo book. Along with the quality of Saals products, after a price comparison with other companies offering the same, I would highly recommend Saal for value, quality and delivery. I very nice company to do business with. Thank you.
Customer review from 14.11.2016
I received my new portfolio, a book produced by Saal Digital UK. I was so excited to hold it and turn the pages, it did not disappoint! The pages feel thick but I think this will keep the book fresher for longer and will avoid dog eared pages. The printing was great (could not fault it) and really showed my work off. The finish was of high quality and I can not wait to start showing it to new clients as I am sure it will secure me work. The process of formatting the book was easy with Saal's own software and the delivery was swift. Have to say I am impressed with the results all round and will order again!
Customer review from 14.11.2016
Great promotion! Many thanks!
Catherine on 14.11.2016
Today I received my portfolio of my dog images in one of Saal-digital's books. Totally pleased with it. Their software for making the book was easy to use and the book itself is just beautiful. Pure quality. I look forward to displaying it at my next show. I totally recommend this company as the making up of the book was very easy and uncomplicated and the delivery time was extremely quick. I chose a matt finish cover with my logo on it together with a presentation box and I just love how it has turned out. A big thank you to Saal-Digital. Will definitely be using them in the future.
Barry on 10.11.2016
Overall not major issues
Chris on 09.11.2016
Excellent, very professional, high-quality photobook. Thank you very much!
Customer review from 08.11.2016
Finally I got my Portfolio. I am absolutely pleased with the superb quality overall. I love the way has been printed: colours are great at the right saturation point. Thanks Saal-Digital PS Customer Service is always been very kind and accommodating with my requests.
Adam on 04.11.2016
Recently I had the pleasure to receive a photo book off the good people at Saal Digital UK. The company was a pleasure to work with and communication with them was fantastic. The company supply a free software to download to make their wide range of products, not just photo books. The software is easy to follow and a pleasure to use. Making your products couldn't be easier. I opted for an A4 photo book with a soft and matt finish cover. Delivery times were great with not too much time waiting for the postman to come with my book. The quality of print is of top standard and the matt paper I went with really compliments the pictures. I would highly recommend them if you were ever thinking of making a photo book.
Peter on 04.11.2016
Received my photobook back from Saal Digital and must say I am very impressed with quality and delivery time. I will definitely be using this company for my future wedding albums.
Customer review from 03.11.2016
Took me a while to prepare the book but only because I've not used your software before. I liked that you could use blank pages and place and size the images to suit each page. My only comment would be that I couldn't size the images full bleed without cropping as the book was A4 rather then 2x3 scale. The upload was very quick which was good. I look forward to receiving my book.
Ian on 03.11.2016
Software quick and simple to install, I've had some experience in using desktop publishing software so quickly worked out how to drag and drop photos in place etc. There is good selection of sample backgrounds and artwork for the photobook to use and designing the layout was very easy. The hardback photobook was of good quality and my friends were over the moon with the finished product, as it is a lasting keepsake of their special wedding day.
Customer review from 02.11.2016
i was browsing through Instagram when i seen the offer to test this product and i am so amazed. i downloaded the software which was so easy to use the only problem for me was choosing what photos to pick once the software its self if easy to use i love the feature that tells you the quality of the image when placed the delivery to UK was really quick and when i opened the package i was amazed the quality of the book its self is highest quality i chose the padded version and glossy pages which look perfect and nice and thick of the highest quality i would totally recommend saal-digital to anyone who is looking to get photo books done as they are amazing and i will be using them again in the future
Customer review from 01.11.2016
First time for me using the software too, and it was all fairly easy once I had got my head around the tools and what you can do with them, but this did take a week to happen. One thing that I don't like is not being able to see a full "as it's going to be printed" preview before you go through the order process, and had I had this option I would not have "sent" the book for printing without making changes. As soon as you hit the payment button, thats it no changes possible, which is a shame as this is the only thing that lets the book down. Customer services were good, but slow to answer emails. Book arrived pretty quickly even at the cheap postage rate, so no problems there. Very impressed at the quality of the book and printing, especially as the images were printed as taken in very high resolution, and I would have no problem recommending SAAL in the future should they continue to make a few tweeks to their software to make it more user friendly. All in all 8.5 out of 10 from me. Cheers
Customer review from 29.10.2016
I have already published my review on your Facebook page and certainly will be using your service again
Customer review from 29.10.2016
It is the first time I have used this software and was not disappointed. The service was great, kept informed all the way through the process from the order to being placed to it being delivered. I placed my order Sunday night, delivery was attempted Thursday. The book looked fantastic. The only criticism I have which reading other comments is not uncommon is when dragging an image into a frame it will crop the image. Otherwise a great experience. Would definitely use again and recommend.
Adam on 28.10.2016
Just received my 1st order, doubt it'll be my last. Software really easy to use. From the very beginning have had constant updates with how my order is going to being shipped. From placing my order to it being received only took 7 days, which when thinking it came from Germany to the UK is really good. The quality of the book is nothing short of amazing. The cover is a hardback and the prints are of the highest quality (obviously the image resolution had something to do with this, but a couple of my images were taken using a phone camera and still look great quality). Anyone thinking of a photobook I recommend Saal, you can't go far wrong.
Customer review from 28.10.2016
I think the book and the colours are of a very high quality and feel very nice. I found the software fairly easy to use, but that's because I am familiar with designing books. However, I think someone new would struggle with it and it could be more user friendly. I also found myself clicking back and forth between the panels and often lost where I was in terms of whether i wanted to pick page layouts, colours etc. It wasn't immediately obvious. Therefore, although I was happy with it, I wouldn't be 100% confident in recommending the software to a friend who was not a regular book maker. I would however, given the quality of the printing, be happy to try some other products.
Customer review from 27.10.2016
This is the fourth time I have tried to leave a honest review. Could not do it from an Ipad so now trying by laptop, hopefully this will work this time. I saw the offer on facebook and thought why not. Was a bit hesitant when i had to download the software to my laptop. But all was ok. I found the software very confusing. I wasn't sure what I was doing. I ended up using the built in layout as I did not know how to use the other ones. Adding the photos was easy but when the software added them to the layout some of them where cropped all wrong and I had to change most of them. One of images that I didn't change was a full page spread, the software never said it was not a good quality image for that size, so when the book arrived the image is sadly pixelated. Was very disappointed with that. All the others are great. The paper quality is good however some pages where glued together. I did manage to get them unstuck with no damage. Was happy with the padded cover it does look good. Overall everything ok. Unfortunately it is just lying in a drawer.
Chris on 25.10.2016
I ordered my Photobook on a Sunday evening after spending a few hours using the design software; starting from a pre-made template. It was very easy to select my photos and position them where I wanted. I submitted the order and was informed of the progress of my order during each step on the website. My Photobook arrived on Wednesday and it is Fantastic. The book itself is well made and each page has been reproduced true to the original colours. Because of the construction (fold flat?) of the photobook, pictures can span across the central fold and still look great. This means that you can use all of a page area for pictures. The book has been passed around friends and family and still looks as good as new as the front and back hard covers provide protection to the pages within and also look great. I have recommended saal-digital to all of my friends!
Oliver on 24.10.2016
Very patient as it took me a while to find the time to design the album with being so busy!
Cara on 22.10.2016
Very flexible software program that was really easy to use to compile my photobook. So far so good and so I eagerly await to see the quality of the final product.
Temple on 17.10.2016
I found an advert on Facebook - a £40 voucher for a photobook in a 14 day period, in exchange for an honest review. This yielded a 30 page A4 sized hardback book in gloss finish. The pages are very thick and heavy - they lay flat at the open page and do not bend. I ordered it late on Saturday and it arrived from Germany to the UK by Thursday. Paypal and Visa were accepted as payments, and the upload of the completed book took a minute over Wifi. Numerous emails informed me of each step in production. The software is easy to download and install. As a semi-professional photographer, I've used many photobook online services. This has the familiar set up of tools - accessing files from multiple sources on the left, a central window for the book, quick page access at the bottom, and various layout and tool options to the right. There are numerous options for text. Each used image has a handy "tick" next to it to indicate it has been used. I had much fun trying different patterns and gradients for the backgrounds. It is possible to have a "spare" photo which you can fill with a background or gradient in order to make a unique border around each image which you drop on top - the software lets you decide which images are on top or sent behind. My file sizes are very large, and the software coped quickly with them, telling me the image quality was "very good". Out of habit, I cropped and lightened the images in a different software. It is possible to crop the images (and keep the aspect ratio) within the book. Handy guidelines appear when you align photos with other images already across the double page spread. A word of advice: It doesn't seem possible to change the "centre" of an image - this is the point that all the sides references - decide your centre in different software. Also, lighten the images in different software - I couldn't find an option for this. This is a photobook creator rather than a photo editor software. It is possible to create a base for similar projects and then change the project by saving it under a different name. This also allows you to go back to an earlier saved version if your experiments don't turn out the way you hope! Previewing the whole book is possible, to see the balance of images throughout rather than focused on the two-page spread. I will be using SAAL again.
Tatum on 17.10.2016
As a proffesional photographer I was a bit sceptical when my mom told me about an offer to trail a free photobook. I had not heard of Saal before and always looking for good quality photobooks at affordable prices I gave it a go. I was very impressed by the speedy delivery and many options to customise. The paper is thick and colour rich. The product came just as it was discribed and I was very impressed. I will certainly consider adding this to my proffesional display products I offer to clients as the quality is excellent.
Richard on 16.10.2016
excellent products and service
Scott on 15.10.2016
Portfolio demo. I saw the free book offer on facebook and jumped at the chance. The software is a little daunting at first as it is so comprehensive and has lots of built in templates and backgrounds but I soon got to grips with it. The whole design and ordering process is simple and the delivery time was great too. The only slight issue I had was with quality control, upon receipt of the book there was a slight crease in the glossy cover. The packaging was undamaged and due to the location of the crease there was no way it could have happened in transit. This is super important with a white label service when sending books directly to clients. Saal's customer service is fantastic they responded promptly and reprinted the book even allowing me to make some small adjustments too. The 2nd book arrived and looked stunning the paper quality is very good but unfortunately, this too had a damaged cover this time on the front edge. SO frustrating as everything else is so very good. Again Saal's customer service was excellent and the 3rd book was perfect. I do think I've just been unlucky as I know a couple of other photographers who have used Saal with no issues at all. I will use Saal again in future but at this stage will get their products delivered to myself before passing on to my clients.
Roy on 14.10.2016
A few weeks ago I took advantage of an offer from SAAL Digital; in exchange for £40 credit I'd review the photobook i created. The book was created in their own software downloaded for free off their website http://www.saal-digital.co.uk I'm used to working with Quark and various photo editing apps, their software was a breeze to use. Easy for anyone who has ever used common programmes like Word. No nasty surprises. Find your photos and drag them onto the page you want, cropping them to fit. Once you're happy, you can preview the book before sending it off to print. I paid a five pounds to remove the barcode on the back cover as the book is for my use only it seemed weird to have something like this on the cover. The quality of the final book was outstanding. Pictures taken on an outdoor stage in drizzle and with no stage lighting came out brilliantly. (the burlesque dancer with her self lit butterfly cloak below). My only issue is the cost. It would not be profitable to reprint the book for resale at over £50 before I could add any markup. The final book is here: https://www.saal-digital.co.uk/service/share-order/?r1CZRroysreQCf66gmpWjq1OJwoIzcdvKoMM6rgK
Customer review from 13.10.2016
My book arrived for some wedding photography that I did for my brothers wedding. The book quality is very good. The programme that is used to create the album takes some time getting used to but once I got into it I was able to create a personalised book thay suited my brothers taste. I would definitely use Saal again for future projects and recommend them to other photographers
Customer review from 13.10.2016
For quite a while now, I have been intending to start collating my exhibition images into books, as an easily accessible record of my progress. I had investigated several options without making any decisions, when an offer from SAAL Digital UK caught my eye on Facebook … a free-of-charge A4 30 page book with hard cover in exchange for an honest review. Too good to be true? You would think so, but it was an absolutely genuine offer, so I emailed off an application, was accepted and settled down to create my book. The initial task was to download the software, easily done, with options given for Mac or PC and very clear directions, although I found I didn’t need them. I decided to go for full page bled images with small captions. I could have had text pages or a combination of text and pictures with different coloured backgrounds – the permutations are many and varied and cater for all kinds of design input. Complete instructions for using the software are provided, but – as a dive-in-and-see-what-happens person – I just started and had no problems working it out as I went along. The software is easy to use, simply select images from an-easy-to-follow menu and drag them into position on each page. I pre-sized my images before loading, but it is possible to resize once loaded, by clicking and dragging on the corners of the images. I couldn’t find the icon to constrain the ratio of my pictures (but it is there as I read on another review). Type sizes, styles and colour were immediately available and, again, very easy to use. The choice of material is limited to matt or gloss, which is a bit of a disappointment, as I would have preferred a silk finish, as I was loading a mixture of colour and monochrome images and find that high gloss can adversely affect the monochrome and matt can dull down colour. However, having chosen to pay a small extra charge for gloss, I am pleased with the final result. The monochromes have held very well with no colour cast and the coloured images, although a tiny bit on the dark side, are pretty true to my original files. SAAL do offer to supply ICC profiles, so this wouldn’t be a problem if colour balance was critical. The pages are a little on the heavy side (I estimated around 200 gsm) and reminded me a little of a child’s story book, but they do lie flat when open and the hard cover is very professionally finished. The overall production and finish of the book is excellent. I ordered my book on Friday 26th August and it was delivered early on Thursday 1st September – a pretty impressive turn-round. I will be using SAAL again to continue recording my images in book form and would recommend their services, particularly in terms of quality and speed of production.

good value for money
Customer review from 13.10.2016
Colours of Menorca by Driweave Images I was fortunate to receive a £40 14 day free trial to make my book to which I am grateful & so to say I was excited upon arrival of my book, is an understatement. Delivery turnaround was very good arriving within a week. From the simple polythene sealed packaging through to the finished product, I couldn't be more delighted! The book has a glossy finish to it throughout. Each page, (including the double paged spreads), has quality clear, crisp, colourfully sharp printed photographs. All this, bearing in mind many of these pictures were taken with my iPhone!!! I will definitely be recommending Saal Digital to others and looking to do similar projects in the near future which includes printing up some more copies of my book as gifts etc. I cannot thank you enough for boosting my photography confidence.
Customer review from 13.10.2016
I saw the offer for a photobook in Facebook, as an artist things like this are incredibly useful putting all your best work together to show potential clients. The process was very easy and the choices the software allows you are infinitely useful, you can choose different layouts, designs, colours, fonts.... so much choice! With my book ready to be printed I was shown a digital version which I could flick through and check that it was ok, I enjoyed this aspect as I could check the page margins and see how each page flowed from the previous page. Once ordered it arrived a few days earlier, bearing in mind this item was shipped from Germany to the UK I was hugely impressed. The book was well packed and a joy to open, I've had photobooks from other suppliers but this is by far the best in terms of quality and the overall look. I'd recommend to anyone, having one of these on your bookshelf is a joy.
Ian on 11.10.2016
Well my book has arrived and must say I am really happy with the results. The quality is fantastic, the images are very crisp and true to the images I edited on my computer. I didn't use the ICC profiles even though my system is calibrated, now I know what the results are, I shall definitely be using again and am sure my clients will be very happy with their albums. I really can't fault SAAL it took 12 days from start to finish which is much faster than other companies I have used and a lot better standard. Well Done SAAL and see you again soon.
Customer review from 11.10.2016
Found this company via a advert on Facebook and have to say the photobook I ordered was out of this world along with a amazing customer service and fast delivery. Great design software, easy to use and highly recommend using them for quality photobooks and other products.
Customer review from 11.10.2016
A couple of weeks ago we were given the opportunity to create and review a printed photobook created by SAAL Digital. The terms and conditions were very straight forward and we were surprised to see that one of the terms was to write an honest review which wouldn’t be checked before being published. We felt this was a good indicator that this company was extremely confident with their products and quality of printing to allow this. (most companies at the very least check your review before being published) The hardest part was choosing the product images to use in this photobook that would become our product photography portfolio for existing and new clients. SAAL digital have their own downloadable software to create the photobook and we found it very easy to use. There are a number of different layouts you can use and it’s easy to adjust the size and positioning of each to showcase each individual image to its best. The other thing we were impressed with was your images were not limited, you could choose to have 1 main image or several smaller images on each page, again this is not something we have seen with other companies, you are usually limited to amount of images you can add to the whole photobook. This feature is ideal for that stand out image that needs a whole page to itself but by doing so you are not having to compromise and lose images. Once we had finally decided on which images and layouts we were happy with, we reviewed the book, and sent it through to be processed. Thinking it might take a while to be printed and delivered we weren’t really expecting to see the book very soon. We were wrong, the photobook arrived 4 days after we had submitted the final layouts. The photobook was extremely well packaged and a lot of care had been taken to make sure the book arrived in the very best condition. Once we had finally removed all the protective packaging we were really impressed with the quality of the book and the front image we had chosen, on the inside, it just got better and better, a bit cautious of the quality of the larger one page images we were stunned to see how well they looked. The quality of the paper and the printing made the images absolutely pop on the page and this is what every photographer wants when they have taken the time to shoot items, a company that can deliver stunning printed versions of your work. We are absolutely delighted with the final product and it’s something we can very proudly show to all clients new and existing, it’s also an opportunity for companies we work with to also see for themselves the quality of SAAL digitals photobooks. Overall a fantastic job from start to finish and a high recommendation for anyone considering a photobook.
Scott on 10.10.2016
I was a little hesitant at first, as with other downloadable photo software It always causes some confusion some frustration and eventually I give up. With saals it couldn't have been simple straight on uploaded pictures and positioned them perfectly to what I wanted even allowing me to change the shape of the frames was easy. once complete ordering from the shopping card was again simple with no confusing extra click this click that order this order that, just simple Once my photobook arrived it was evident these guys know what there doing, the sample was perfect the quality was perfect the pictures jumped off the page and they even improved the colouring ..I will be using only Saal from now on as this the quality I want from all my photos ,.. Very impressed very happy experience ,thank you Saal.. Only difficult thing I found was, what photos I should use,...now I'm working on my next project thank you
gary on 10.10.2016
We recently got our photobook which we found on www.gratisfaction.co.uk and I must say it was a pleasurable process from start to finish. The book has turned up today and the only disappointment was my lack of attention to detail when it came to the cover, this is the reason i dropped 1 star for the software as it wasnt stand out enough that the cover and back were not in this logical order. Therefore our cover is actually on the back of our book and despite common sense it has sadly not worked out! The photos are absolutely amazing quality, the delivery time all the way from germany was flawless and i must say i am extremely impressed and think I will order another one. At £40 the book is a bargain, it has a professional feel and I will be back in the future whenever I need to purchase something like this. I just wish the Cover/Back section was more obvious as I am sure I will not be the only person to make this mistake. Thanks so much, Gary
Zoltan on 08.10.2016
Thank you for the beautiful photo book. Good sharp printing and quality book.
Alan on 06.10.2016
In return for an honest and impartial review, I recently took advantage of an offer and produced a photo book of the prints I exhibited at Artspace. The book was prepared and printed by Saal Digital UK. I am used to producing photo books online so jumped straight in without looking at instructions etc and found the software intuitive and with loads of options for setting up the style of book and layout of images etc. There were also a good number of extra controls to change opacity levels etc. The book didn't take long to pull together and the upload of the images was pretty quick compared to others I have used. I did receive a link to an online view of the book. That didn't work and I reported it. It has now almost been fixed with all but the first page displaying correctly. Less than a week later the book was delivered and I am very impressed. It really is beautifully made, printed and well put together. Packaging was excellent too. The colour renditions are all true and the paper used is very high quality. The actual cost is perhaps higher than some of the other providers out there, but I think you will really get what you pay for, a high quality book of your images that will last and be a pleasure to look at for a long time.
Customer review from 05.10.2016
I have photobooks made on a regular basis for my clients by a single supplier as the quality of all their products is exceptional. However, since their books are handmade they area expensive and slow to produce, so having the chance to try Saal Digital with very little outlay was something I couldn't pass up. I found the software Saal Digital supply to be adequate for most purposes, if lacking a little in usability and design possibilities as I am used to having far more control over my layout. Overall, however, the software is straightforward and for simpler books works quite well. Quality of service and delivery time was excellent. I wasn't flooded with loads of emails, but I was kept informed of what was happening, and being able to see the status of my order matched quite well with the service I get from my current supplier. For many people, Saal Digital will provide a book that suits their needs perfectly, with a good price and reasonable quality. For my clients however, the book will be a hard sell. I specifically ordered a book that would be similar to those I normally get, with a matt photo cover, and extra thick matt pages. Compared to the books I currently provide, the Saal Digital book has a number of problems. The paper for both the cover and pages has a bit of an odd feel to it that is not quite as satisfying and tactile as I'm used too. It's not a deal breaker, but it's just not quite right. The cover is definitely a lot thinner than I was expecting and far too easy to bend. The pages themselves are also a lot thinner than I was expecting having ordered extra thick. However, the quality of the printing is extremely good with a nice edge to edge spread and the colour match was pretty close to what I was expecting. It's not quite a lay flat book but it's very close. Packaging could have been better as the book I received had suffered some damage in transit. Overall, the Saal Digital PhotoBook is pretty reasonable value for money, it's of fairly decent quality, and I will most likely order more books as my entry level option. Compared to the likes of Photobox, Snapfish etc... it's definitely a better option
Customer review from 05.10.2016
I am an artist and I was chosen for the product trial and I received a voucher code for a £40. I am more than satisfied with the product, the quality is perfect, everything is just amazing. I am more than happy that I used Saal services and I will use them again and definitely will recommend them everywhere. The software for the design was easy to use, fast and really good. I received my photobook just now- and I am really impressed. Thank you Saal !
David on 05.10.2016
Much like other providers Saal give you the chance to download their software so you can create the photobook offline before finalizing the book and uploading/ordering. The software at first looks a little difficult to use compared to other providers, but after 10 minutes you learn where everything is and it becomes really good to work with.There are endless amounts of layouts that can be chosen for the pages. I was able to create the photobook around 300% quicker than other providers simply because the layout tool and the way you can resize photos is much quicker and accurate. The Album arrived within 5 days of ordering which is around 2 weeks faster than other providers I have used, considering it comes all the way from Germany thats a really good result. The album itself is extremely high quality,both the paper and print quality are better than anything we have previously used. We would need to look at other album sizes and finishes but overall the product and service provided has been better than any other provider. We will definitely be using @saal.digital.uk photobooks in the future

Wow what a great quality photobook, its more beuty than i excepted :D love it and im sure will order more products in futer
Customer review from 04.10.2016
Overall, i was quite satisfied, I found the book to be nice, but not great in terms of print quality and truth to the original images, i found some to be under exposed more so than the originals. The design software was very easy to use but the options on what you could do were limited i found. Luckily i wanted a plain and simple book, with full page prints and for this, it was great, simple layout and design and because of this the software was perfect for it. The book is nice and bulky and feels like its constructed well and will last a decent length of time. I would look at purchasing from SAAL again.
Jason on 03.10.2016
Designing my photobook was very easy using their included software and had many options for prebuilt layouts and designs. All I needed to do was upload my photos and drag them into boxes. Delivery was very quick within 2 days all the way from Germany. There was an issue of text alignment/overlapping on the delivered, however after contacting support they quickly offered to reprint the book at no extra charge. The finished quality is great and to a high standard.
Christopher on 02.10.2016
I took up an offer for a credit of £40 to test and review a Saal photobook, which was perfect as I was looking for a photo book provider for my wedding photography. The software was easy to use, the service on support was pretty fast, prices seem reasonable, postage was abut 4-5 days which is pretty good. One big problem that I have with Saal is that they require images sent with ICC profiles for their paper types rather than srgb like most printer companies require. As most photographers work in srgb, when I soft proofed with the Saal ICC for glossy photo book it muted my colours and basically meant after I had edited my images as usual, I then had to re-edit to boost the colours for the Saal product. I understand Saal want the customer to check the colours are correct for when they are printed, but other companies just take images in srgb. I decided to just let the images be submitted as I had edited them in srgb, as it was just a test album. I have to say most images do look fine, and colourful enough, but there is the odd image that did look muted. I am sure I read the presentation box could be customised to include my company logo etc. but couldn't see any options in the software for this, so the box comes very plain indeed. Would I use Saal again? I think it would come down to price of other companies.
Ian on 01.10.2016
At this current time I cannot comment on delivery time as I have only just submitted my order. What I will say after using many different publishers, printers and suppliers regarding printing my images for clients, Saal is by far the fastest and most straight forward out of all of them. The process was so past, some companies I have used has taken me three days or more to upload my images, with Saal was a matter of minutes. Truly amazing, such an easy straight forward process, which as a photographer with demanding clients at times helps to take the stress out of the process. Thanks Saal and I will definitely be recommending you guys.
Customer review from 29.09.2016
I'm extremely happy with the album I ordered from Saal Digital. The quality of the gloss photographic paper was fantastic and I look forward to ordering many more albums in the future for my own business where I rebind books and albums in custom leather.
Ian on 28.09.2016
The software is so simple to use, just drag and drop photos and select the layout (so many to choose from). Ordering and paying on-line was very quick and easy. Can't wait to get the album as it is a gift for friend's who gave me the honour of photographing their wedding. Thank you also for providing me with an extension to my voucher code, although the prices are very reasonable, having a discount voucher really helped toward the cost.
Customer review from 28.09.2016
I received my book this morning after a bit of a wait though I think that was more to do with my local delivery than with Saal. I love the finish on these pages and have decided to introduce personalised 'baby' board books as part of my packages. Babies still need books and what better than books with known faces in them? I will be back :-) Blue
Magda on 28.09.2016
I was quite a sceptic before my first order, but I was pleasantly surprised when arrived. Quality was first class, pictures were nicely printed and looked exactly like on my screen, the finish was outstanding with first class quality prints. Definitely will be ordering again! Highly recommended.
Carlos on 27.09.2016
Finally we received the first Bridges of the River Thames book from Saal Digital The final product was of a very high quality. We chose the A4 size for panoramas with glossy finish and hardback cover. The delivery was fast and well packaged to protect the book in transit. Thank you so much to Saal Digital UK for giving me the opportunity to print and publish a project while testing their services. Also thanks to Julia Hollier for all the hard work, for the bridge research and writing. It was lovely seeing it come to life with a quality finish in order to appreciate the detail of my photographs. The software was easy to download from Saal-DigitalUK and use, allowing for the photos to be uploaded quickly and some room for manipulation to position them. The full project consists of 22 photos each requiring a double page spread. It was also nice to be able to add and edit text onto the pages. This worked particularly well in our case where we wanted just a small space to add comments on the shots. The most impressive thing about the book is the print quality and the vivid and accurate colour reproduction. The detail and colours of the photographs have been produced with care which has created a beautiful book that we are extremely pleased and proud of. I highly recommend this product from Saal Digital This the project page in Saal-Digital https://www.saal-digital.co.uk/service/share-order/…
Customer review from 27.09.2016
Once i got used to the software, i loved it. really good choices and options and layouts. The quality of the photobook was way better than i had expected. It was fantastic quality. The speed of production and delivery were good also arrived well packaged.
Customer review from 27.09.2016
Love my photobook! The finished article has far surpassed what I expected. The quality could not be improved, people browsing the book are always trying to separate the pages as they think it's stuck together, when in fact the paper is just really good thick paper!! I found the software a little difficult to understand at first, uploading the pics I wanted to use and then having to remove them from all the suggested placements due to bad crops, but once i realised you can drag the desired photos straight from Bridge to the area I wanted it was brilliant, a huge amount of scope for editing the layout. I would highly recommend and will be using Saal again for my next project :)
Customer review from 24.09.2016
Fantastic quality product, great to show off my work in printed form. Will definitely use again. The software was easy to use and I was kept informed all the way through the order and delivery process. Arrived quickly, and would have been quicker still had it not been for our own Royal Mail.
Customer review from 22.09.2016
Can't wait until I get my photo book to check for the quality. The process was simple enough, although the editing process was a little disorganised.
Customer review from 21.09.2016
The software took some getting used to but the quality of the photobook is superb - better than any I have had done by other companies. The thick glossy pages really do the images justice. They are stunningly sharp and rich in colour. I had a free trial which forced me to rush the production more than I would have liked - and to be more conservative with my design choices. But I wouldn't hesitate to use them again, or to recommend Saal to others. The speed of production and delivery was also impressive. Make sure you allow yourself lots of time to become familiar with the software and to browse the design choices before you get started. And note that whilst images appear in the design almost immediately when selected they won't actually be uploaded until the product is complete, so allow time for this at the end.
syed on 20.09.2016
the delivery process is very dissatisfying and communication is not up to the standard.
Customer review from 20.09.2016
I am delighted with the end result! The photobook I received echoes the finish and quality of the well known GraphiStudio photobooks but at a fraction of the price. I will certainly recommend this alternative to the Brides & Grooms I photograph each year. The glossy cover sets the tone of a quality product and the hard pages give it a luxury feels which is ideal for weddings. It took me some time to get used to the software but eventually managed to achieve what I was after. I would however like to see some specific wedding templates instead of having to look through the various options/menus to find icons, royalty free images, backgrounds etc... Overall, a very good service and excellent finished product.
alan on 17.09.2016
As a photographer in a digital age I find it more important now than ever to print photos, as so many photos never see outside of a computer screen. I found the software easy to use and gave me lots of options to use various layouts and page spreads. The software wasn't the easy to use to start off with, but it's far more than capable and produces outstanding results when the finished photo-book showed up . The book its self was amazing quality and I would be more than happy to send this to clients as it came to me in the post. I would recommend Saal-digital to anyone looking for a professionally finished product. Personally I loved the Matte finish and the thickness of the paper as it made the images feel like they're of superior quality. Thanks again
Customer review from 13.09.2016
Have to review how great the quality of these is, lovely thick pages and rich colours. We have a lot of similar books made at home and this tops them. A little more pricey than others (depending which page/size/finish options used) but you get what you pay for in colour accuracy! The software to make it has masses of options as you can see, very customisable, including printing on every single inch, and flatly across the join. They ship from Germany at ridiculous speed, and any issues were answered and sorted quickly!
Customer review from 09.09.2016
This is probably most intuitive photo book software I have used and, from start to finish, my experience was seamless, efficient, fast and I am thrilled with my book - the padded cover is lush! The quality and speed of production is excellent and I particularly liked the regular updates so I could track the production. Things I may change next time...I had to rush this book because the 14-day trial period started just as I was going away so I didn't have time to fully prepare my images. On reflection I should have either chosen the glossy finish or sharpened for matte, one or two looked a bit 'soft'. Of course this is down to me although maybe it would help if Saal could include something about image preparation in the instructions? Maybe they already do...I didn't have time to read them! I also love the way the book fully opens without a spine, just hope this is robust, but time will tell. As it is, I am completely sold on this product. Yes I did have a free trial, for which I am very grateful, but my review is honest and I now have 3 more in the pipeline, there's contentment for you!
Finn on 08.09.2016
Blinding German efficiency. Ordered this photobook at about midnight and it was dispatched by lunchtime the next day. Staggering. Quality is excellent and more so for the affordable price. The only thing I would change about the whole experience would be having an image constraint option when using the software.
Ian on 07.09.2016
I was grateful to be given the recent opportunity to try a Saal Photobook at no cost, and having created a number of such albums using a range of competitors including Jessops, Bobs Books, Bonusprint & TicTac Photo, reckon I'm pretty qualified to make an assessment. I think this is possibly the best all-round album I've yet created. Certainly the construction of the book, the image quality, paper, and all-round appearance are first class. No exposure issues either. I sometimes find that my prints can be a little darker than they should be, probably because I expose for highlights and the fact that my monitor is possibly a bit too bright. One particular album provider under-exposed many of my images but the odd thing was that others were perfectly exposed when I would have expected consistency throughout. Saal got the exposure spot on. The book arrived very swiftly, indeed it was sent within a day or so of ordering it, and I was informed of this. On arrival I found it to be well packed and in unmolested condition, indeed the presentation of the package on arrival was first-class. Finally, - creating it: all the album suppliers use similar software but some are easier to use than others. I found the Saal software fairly easy to navigate, my only problem was figuring out the meaning of the terms provided for the design layouts, I went through all of them to see what they actually offered, when a picture illustrating the alternative designs would to my mind have made this more straight-forward. The album saved readily and when it came to order the album, that too was relatively straight-forward, the only confusion being the template in which to write a UK address. This asked for the street then the number, additional address information, zip code then a city. In the UK of course, we have a number or name, the street, town, County then postcode, generally speaking. I'm nit-picking! First class album, well pleased, - happy to recommend, - will I order another album? It's a "yes" from me!
Leanne on 07.09.2016
I have not yet received my photo book but the speed on the responses, the incredible customer service and the fantastic support and options on site is beyond what I expected.
Alice on 07.09.2016
I have just received my 26 page book - the quality is superb; beautiful very thick glossy pages, and the colours are spot-on. Some similar products tend to get the colours wrong but this one is perfect. I'm very impressed and will definitely recommend these products to my clients. Just a couple of things to note: images are also printed on the inside covers, which is not very usual. This did not bother me, but some people may not like this feature. Also if you share your photo book to your Facebook page, you get the company logo as a thumbnail, rather than the front cover of your book, which is a little disappointing and doesn't encourage your followers to click on it. I did have some very prompt support on this issue but it has not enabled me to replace the thumbnail.
Donatas on 06.09.2016
Woow. Quality of the book is just amazing. Software so easy to use. Thank you so much. Would recommend this for everyone.
Vivien on 06.09.2016
We were very happy with your website and the support we had from your team. We did find the quality of the black and white images superb in the tonal range especially as I use a digital camera and my husband uses analogue. The quality of the paper is very high however we do feel that by adhering the spreads to each other the resulting pages are very thick. This has also resulted in the pages being quite wavy. Having ordered a photo book and not the photo book XT I am wondering if we have the correct product?
Niki on 29.07.2016
Amazingly easy to use the software, book was emailed across on Sunday evening and I received it on following Wednesday. Love the quality of the book, Thank you and I will return to do another one after my son's wedding.
Customer review from 29.07.2016

Omg I'm so impressed with the quality of my photo album.the delivery took under a week which I could not believe how quick it was .Absolutely beautiful. I will definitely use saal digital again . Thank you so much.
Customer review from 22.07.2016
So, its been a few weeks now since I received my 'free' photo book from Saal Digital UK and now several people have seen it I wanted to write my review. As you can imagine, the offer of something for free was initially met with some scepticism, would I actually receive the finished product and with it being free was it going to be a substandard product? I needn't have been concerned, within five days of compiling my book and submitting it for processing, it arrived from Germany. Before opening the package, I was still of the feeling that I would be somewhat disappointed! How wrong I was. Having only ever seen my images printed poorly at home, to actually seeing the difference professional printing can make has made me want to have more tangible prints/portfolios of my photography. The pages of my book were luxuriously thick with a glossy finish that really did improve how my photos looked. Going forward I can definitely see myself getting more photo books just for my own personal satisfaction and enjoyment.
Mark on 20.07.2016
I'm really impressed with the quality of Saal-Digital albums, especially for the price point. I will definitely be using them again. Read my review on the link below: http://www.markgriffithsphotography.co.uk/single-post/2016/07/19/An-impressively-affordable-wedding-album

seriously good service and quality, well pleased
Rafael on 14.07.2016
First of all, I must say that I'm really happy with the results. The software is good although not excellent. I found a problem not being able to resize with a proportions constraint (if there is one, I could not find how to use it). Another annoyance is that if I place a picture over the bleed, it does not allow me to crop it, and quite often I ended up just giving up on it and scrapping a relevant part of the image or going back to my edition software to process the crop prior to importing the image. I found a workaround which is to place the picture on the top or the bottom where there is breathing space for the image to be placed over the bleed. However, it limits the layout of the page. I find quite useful the ticks to let you know the images already used. Let's review the book itself. I was surprised with the good quality, the pages thickness and consistency, and more over, the accuracy in the colours, which I was scared of. Great job overall. And the book is sturdy and really well made. However I found some of my pictures had being changed a bit in the contrast. Most of them seemed to be as they were, but A couple of them lost a bit of contrast in my opinion, whilst some others had a bit too much. I wonder if they were treated a bit prior to printing or it is due to the printing process itself. Well, to wrap up, really happy with the results, from now on a client, and amazed by the promptness of the process. Thank you for a great job.
Jessica on 14.07.2016
I'm so excited I have received an amazing album realized by saaldigital with my wedding photos. It's so beautiful and professional, I love the glossy and unpadded cover, the colors and the paper are so nice. I'm very grateful for this precious album. Thanks you so much saal digital , I love it.

Gwynne on 14.07.2016
I have just received my second ever photo album of my images from Saal Digital UK. What an amazing experience from conception to delivery. The whole time, from submitting to receiving was 3 days. Unbelievable, from outside the UK. The app they have designed has been well thought through, giving you all the options you will need to create your book. From a basic layout/style to a blank canvas. Every step of the way telling you how much it will cost (but also showing, what options cost less). One other thing I liked was that it showed you wether the image was of sufficient quality for the size required in the book. The quality of the book is above what I thought it could be and the prints are crystal clear. I will say that I am certainly surprised I can recommend this company Saal-Digital so easily. The hardest part of the whole process - choosing my images. They have done me proud.
Malcolm on 13.07.2016

I have just placed an order for a photobook and so far have been very impressed. Though I cannot yet comment on the quality of the delivery time (first order quite literally placed about 10 mins ago) the software is very easy to use, the response times to any questions have been very good and information has been easy to find when needed.
