Zoom Album Review and Giveaway!




Every mother loves showing off pictures of her children. We usually have at least a couple professional photos in our pocketbook for just this reason. Even so there are times when we want to show off our personal photos. The problem is finding a good way to carry our personal photos with us.

I know that on many occasions I have carried around bulky photo albums in order to do this. The problem with these are that they usually do not fit into my pocketbook. If by some chance it does it weighs it down making it uncomfortable to carry.

I have also been known to have 4x6 photos loose in my pocketbook to show off. These photos usually end up bent by the time I make it home and I have to reprint them. Not only is this wasteful, but also time consuming.

Thanks to Zoom Album I have finally found the answer to my dilemma. Zoom Album provides kits that allow us to make our own pocket-sized (3 inches x 3 inches) photo albums right at our computer. All you need to get started is a computer and an inkjet printer with ink, the kit has everything else needed to make the album. The software is PC and MAC compatible. I personally own a MAC and they worked fabulously together.

The only difficulty I had was printing the cover for the album. I emailed zoom album and was sent exact directions on what to do with my computer and printer. Following their instructions made it super easy. I loved that these instructions were for a MAC with my exact printer! So if you run into any difficulties just take a moment to email and I am sure they will be glad to help you.

My end result I have a great little photo album to show off to my friends, family, and co-workers without the bulk, weight, or increased risk of damaging photos. It fits comfortably inside my pocketbook for easy carrying. What more could I want? In my opinion its great. I also think this would be a great gift for family especially grandmas because we know they have the same picture issues!

Each Zoom Album starter kit makes a total of 3 photo albums. They also have refill sets available to make 5 or 25 zoom albums! Right now you can get 40% off of everything at their site. So hurry on over and check it out!

BUY IT: Visit Zoom Album - Great News right now they are having a 40% off sale which includes all of their products!

What a great idea! I love these "mini" albums. I know exactly what I would do: I'd make albums that feature my two beautiful little girls (ages 2.5 years old and 2 months old)...and then I'd give an album to each of their grandparents and great grandparents. Oh, and I'd make one to keep in MY backpack/purse too! :)

Jennifer said...

This is so cute. I would have pictures of my girls in it, to show off of course!

These are WONDERFUL! I would make one of my Grandson; 1 for my Mother-in-law (Great-Grandma), 1 for my daughter who lives on the East coast and doesn't get to see her nephew very often and 1 for ME - we live 5 1/2 hrs away so I need to carry him w/me, too!!!

ZoomAlbum: I would finally get the photos from my daughter's adoption trip together into one place, for her to show at school etc.
I love that you can make your own cover, too! Checking out their website, it seems like they have every need/possibility taken care of.
