Here you find product reviews from our customers.


  • Very pleased with it - first time I had bought something like this.
  • I have used pixum for many years and found them to be excellent at both the creation and delivery/service aspects. Totally recommend them Simon Moffatt
  • Excellent quality, great colours throughout the photo book, highly recommend, will definitely order again, thanks Pixum!
  • Apart from it crashing occasionally this wasn't a big problem as it autosaved. The options were easy and great. Excellent product.
  • Service prompt, good live support when I had questions (although you need someone dedicated to English speaking customers), quality of prints very good. Very happy with results. Should be even better next time when I am more familiar with your products. Lot to learn.
  • Excellent in every way. I did not find the web page clear, that the photo book large landscape was lay flat, which is what I wanted. I had to email Pixum to confirm. Otherwise, superb, no errors, very fast turnround. Not the cheapest but the best.
  • I downloaded the app to compose my book. The app is quite powerful in most respects and gives you plenty of control over layout, cropping and more, though I found its handling of photo libraries a bit awkward. The results: a splendid photo book of high quality, exactly as I composed it, and produced and delivered in a matter of days. Recommended.
  • Very pleased with product build and print quality.
  • Excellent
  • This is a review for photo album No 17 from Pixum. It is a wonderful product and gives us great pleasure to look through it from time to time and to show our friends. I highly recommend this.
