Wedding Album!

February 26th, 2009

I’ve been wait­ing a mighty long time to write this blog…
The KISS book for Sam and Reanne arrived a few months back.

It was my first book ordered through them and I’m not ashamed to say that I went with them based 100% on cus­tomer reviews, which by the way, were all perfect.

I designed the album myself which was a fan­tas­tic chal­lenge. I used Pho­to­junc­tion and it worked along side the KISS 12inch x 12 Inch lay­outs to a tee!

The Book arrived and it was a real plea­sure to take it out of its box. And then out of its can­vas tote bag!
The print­ing was per­fect, all the lines were SO crisp, and all the cor­ners of the pic­tures were so sharp, the col­ors too were more awe­some than anything!

There was one small prob­lem, so I emailed Kevin and the guys at KISS, and with­in a few hours (remem­ber they’re based in the states), they let me know that anoth­er album is already on the print ready to be shipped out for me, at no extra cost! We’re talk­ing a wed­ding album with a mar­ket val­ue of about £2000 here!

The new book came in no time, and since then, they had imple­ment­ed their new space age pack­ag­ing which looks allot kinder to the envi­ron­ment, and makes the book feel safer in tran­sit, it also makes the box small­er and lighter, so I bet it real­ly is doing the envi­ron­ment a load of good!

From the start of the process, right up to the end, I was in con­stant com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the guys Kevin, Shaun, Rachel and Mark, they made me feel real­ly special.

Since the lit­tle prob­lem with my book, they have since brought in a new rou­tine where they make sure the book is ABSOLUTELY per­fect before it leaves the factory.

When I was writ­ing this blog in my head, I thought some­thing along the lines of;…
I don’t real­ly want to make this blog make KISS bet­ter than what they are, but I’m cer­tain­ly not going to say “don’t go with KISS, they made a mistake”

The Fact that there was an error with my book shows that this book isn’t made by the same robots like at Blurb, but its made by Humans who often make lit­tle mis­takes, and that’s ok, because they’ve not only sort­ed out the prob­lem, but have made my life easy in doing a damn good job of sort­ing out the prob­lem, and have now made sure that this nev­er hap­pens to any­one else.

I will def­i­nite­ly order an album with KISS again. Definitely.
Thanks guys, you’re the best!

Enjoy the pic­tures ok?
If you’ve seen the album, leave a com­ment at the bot­tom of the page to let me know what you think!

    I have seen the book and it is superb. The lay­out and pre­sen­ta­tion is of the high­est qual­i­ty. Keep up the good work Joseph .

    Thrilled that you got a per­fect book. Thanks for being patient and under­stand­ing that this is hand craft­ed and small things slip through some­times. We are excit­ed to pro­duce amaz­ing books but we are even more pas­sion­ate about tak­ing care of our photographers.
