Mini-Review: Saal Digital Photog Books Offer Quality at Modest Price Points

Saal Digital 1

In a competitive and saturated photo book market, Saal Digital offers photographers and serious amateurs yet another quality option to consider.  Last month Saal Digital offered me a “discount coupon” to try one of their photo book options.  Typically, I have relied on higher quality book makers such as GraphiStudio based in Italy—and at commensurately higher prices as well.  But sometimes the most expensive offerings are not the best for all photo projects. Enter Saal Digital, offering a good quality product at modest pricing.

Photo books are offered in square and rectangular formats, lay flat binding, a selection of photo and matte papers, and various cover options.  Books may be between 26 to 120 pages in length. Print quality is quite good for the price point and certainly much better than typical consumer grade offerings.

But the biggest attraction to Saal Digital is actually their website online ordering capability.  Kudos here to Saal Digital. The online process is exceptionally easy to use, select options, and create photo books.  I was amazed at the simplicity of the online software to create a photo book “automatically” with images that were simply (and quickly) uploaded from my computer.  Obviously, personal tastes vary and are subjective, and other design options will obviously produce even higher quality layouts.  Need a quick photo book? It’s hard to beat Saal-Digital’s automatic software option.

Saal Digital offers professionals and discerning consumers a good quality photo book option at a competitive price point.  You can get more information and order photobooks at https://www.saal-digital.com/
