Large Landscape Cewe Photobook
£39.99*, n/a Postage: £4.25 (or free to store), n/a Delivery time: five working days photo.jessops.com We felt a sense of déjà vu when compiling this photobook, as Jessops uses the same online creator and downloadable software as Bob Books, albeit with some superficial tweaks. Once you’ve navigated the initial product choices, the creator software is packed with style and layout options.
Jessops offers matching size, paper, and binding options to Bob Books, so it’s not surprising that the photobook itself also boasts identically sublime print quality. This is all explained by both firms subcontracting the same printing outfit – Cewe Ltd.
Choosing between the two really comes down to whether you’d prefer Jessops’ free store delivery option or Bob Books’ additional creation services and international delivery.
Pros Top-notch print and paper quality; free collection from Jessops store. Cons
Bob Books offers more creation options; slightly higher base price; UK only. We say
Jessops beats Bob Books purely thanks to free store delivery. Overall score *26 pages, Premium Photographic 300gsm paper, lay-flat binding, photo hardcover
