Blurb Imagewrap photo book review

blurb_logo_smallI previous mentioned the Blurb photo book I had ordered with the intention of updating that post with my thoughts when it arrived. Now that it’s here there’s quite a bit to say so those thoughts are now presented as this new post. There are also plenty of photo’s of the book, shared for anyone trying to decide whether to go ahead and place an order.

Delivery took seven days from placing the order, and I received an email the day before notifying me of dispatch with UPS. The book came from the Netherlands to the UK so to me this was very good since Blurb claim 5-6 business days to make the book and 1-15 to deliver dependant on your shipping choice. I had specified priority 2-4 day shipping at £10.37, in effect I got the 1-2 day £21.37 express option. To save more money in future I intend to order multiple books in one order as the shipping cost for ten books was still £10.37. Read more…

iPhoto Book problems part 2

January 31, 2008 Leave a comment

Apple PhotoBookAt 5.31pm this evening I received a reply from Apple’s Photo Services team concerning my defective Photo Book. They have refunded the cost of the book to my credit card (minus postage costs) and apologised for the inconvenience. If I want to place the order again I need to contact them within 48 hours.
That’s a fast and decisive response that I can’t complain about, but it leaves me puzzled. I asked for a replacement book if the problems could be fixed or a refund if not, and got a refund. Does this mean the colour issue is not something that can be changed? In what I have found to be typical Apple behaviour they have resolved the problem without admitting it exists. I had exactly the same response when my Macbook suffered the sudden shutdown issue, and again when the battery lost capacity.
I’m not going to order another book if I can’t be sure the quality is as good as it should be. Looks like the search for an alternative Photo Book supplier starts here.
