@TwoStatesBride:  Wow, the Artifact Uprising books are so beautiful that I personally would be willing to overlook the fact that it doesn’t lay flat.  But if you’re not feeling it, then i say pass!

We haven’t been super impressed with their print quality.

Hi TwoStatesBride,

I just thought I’d share my experience with Artifact Uprising in case your still considering using them, or if any other brides out there are.

We made our wedding album through Artifact Uprising and I cannot recommend them enough! In fact we were so impressed with the quality that we ordered extra copies for both of our parents who love them too. The quality for the price is astounding and shipping outside of the US where they are based was reasonable and quick. We ordered the landscape hard cover book for our wedding albums with a full sized dust jacket. Your right that the books are linen not leather but you can chose the colour of the linen and so far it’s ageing really well. They used recyled paper which still looks and feels of a high quality and if you’ve used a candid style wedding photographer it suits the style perfectly. We were so impressed that we used them to make a soft cover book of our honeymoon photos and plan to do the same for all our previous overseas trips! I’m in the middle of putting together a book documenting our first year of marriage together through snaps I’ve taken over the last year.

Their hardcover books don’t lay flat like some I have seen but I really can’t recommend these enough. Every person we’ve shown our albums to has commented on how great quality they are and we’ve even had a few people ask for the info about the makers so they can do their own. I hope that helps!

carolineswee:  I’m currently working on creating a wedding album with Artifact Uprising, a hardcover book.  Can I ask how felt about their design program?  I’m finding that it is very frustrating, how you have to click through 5 pictures at a time and if anything is over 12mb in size, the whole upload cancels.  Did you find any tricks?

My photographer made our album, but we have the lay flat pages, and they are REALLY nice.  To me, they really transformed our album from pictures on a page to something that really tells the story of our wedding.  

I agree about the paper covers.  They would ware, but they would be great to have if they photo was printed on the cover too.

I’ve used them all or rather tried to (Artifact Uprising. Picaboo, My Pubisher, Shutterfly to name a few). I felt that Shutterfly was the only one that was intuitive. The rest left me frustrated.

From shutterfly, I’ve bought the generic 8×8 for guest photos from the wedding, shower photos, as well as making a guest book. For our wedding photos we bought a lay-flat 11×14 book (109 pages). The quality was great and are a few steps above the general 8×8 books they sell. 

They do have other covers, but we opted for a photo on ours. We waited for a sale and only paid $105 for it. We look at it almost everyday and it’s held up very well. Quality is amazing and the paper is thicker than a generic 8×8 photo book.
