Photo albums are meant to be poured over. You should be able to snuggle up with your coziest blanket, album in hand, and lazily take time to relive the memories the photos bring to mind. Album99 by Nations Photo Lab is just beautiful, and I think it’s the perfect book to walk down memory lane with!

The album is a beautiful flush mount, ranging in sizes from 5×5 to 12×12. I chose a 10×10 with thin pages and the oatmeal linen cover. You may customize further by choosing thick pages, or from three other cover choices: leather, photo wrap, or canvas wrap. The product gets its name – Album99 – because pricing starts at just $99! This is a truly fantastic price for a book of this quality.
When it came to choosing which photos to include in my design, I knew I wanted to create a special album from my trip to North Carolina last summer. I traveled there with my mom to visit family, and my husband joined us after a few days. It was incredibly special to have that time with her one-on-one, and I took plenty of pictures to document the fun we had!
Creating the album is done either in Nations’ web design program or ROES; I chose their web program (one less thing to download!). It’s a fairly cut-and-dry process: upload your photos, drag and drop onto the desired page or choose one of their premade layouts. If you’d like even more design features, you can add backgrounds, clip art, borders, text, the works! I kept my album simple by only using their layouts.
The album is eye-catching, to say the least. I love the texture of the durable linen cover, and though I chose the ‘thin’ pages, they are exceptionally sturdy! I was also impressed by the quality of the Instagram pictures I included. I imagined they may not print as clearly as those taken with my DSLR, but I could barely tell a different between the two. The photos are printed vibrantly, and the slight sheen on the pages makes them really pop! You will love holding this album in your hands!
I am thrilled to have this album, and will certainly design another in the future. I hope you will hop on over to Nations Photo Lab to order your own Album99 and check out all of their other delightful products!
