Optionally, the barcode can also be omitted, which allows you to have a particularly classy and high-quality presentation of your pictures.

No Manufacturer Logo

We do not include a manufacturers logo on any of our photo products. However, our photobooks contain a small barcode on the back cover and on the last page. This does not contain any references to us as a manufacturer or as a customer.

Photobook with padded cover

The feel of the padded cover, whether with photo paper or leatherette, is indescribable and leaves an even more valuable impression.

Upgrade your photobook with another feature by selecting the option "with padding". The cover is filled with an additional soft padding layer (3 mm). You can not only see the difference, but also feel it as soon as you hold the photobook! This option can be selected for both the cover in leatherette and the cover with photo paper.

Discover the two different types of photobooks from our collection: photobook and photobook XT. The difference lies in the thickness of the spreads and the page count available. The spreads of the photobook are adhered to each other on the back side and have a thickness of 0.34mm. On the other hand, the photobook XT is flush mounted. Each page is 1.08mm thick with a grammage of 600 g/m².

Individual page count

Our photobook is available from 26 to 120 pages while our photobook XT is available from 10 to 36 pages. You can add additional pages based on your own needs. Thanks to the layflat binding, you do not need to worry about the disturbing fold in the middle of the book any more.

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.
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.
Customer review from 05.01.2017
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
designed thursday afternoon, you printed it on friday i had it before breakfast on monday!!!
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.
Customer review from 28.11.2016
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.

VERY GOOD QUALITY !!!
Ben on 25.11.2016
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.
