With the digital world now, most of us (including me) have to admit that we don’t print photos as often as before anymore, since we can view it from time to time on our gadgets anyway. However, to have these photos printed is still a lot different compared to seeing them on screen, you know what I mean?
For the longest time, I had wanted to print photos of Nate’s birth and 1st year of life but look now, 2 years old na sya and still no hard copy! lol. But, thankfully (and finally!), I was able to get discounts coupons from Metro Deal for Photobook Philippines.
I heard about Photobook Philippines since last year, and quite honestly, I already have a few drafts on their website for a soft cover photo album (the cheapest they have, lol). But, I didn’t keep a budget for it until recently. You know, money matters, lol! I had many things to prioritize before this. But now, I’m so happy I finally got it!
40 Pages from Photobook Philippines for
When I saw that it was just for 20 pesos, I didn’t waste time (tamang tama may laman pa debit card ko – I don’t own a credit card so I can only use my card when it has money in it), I ordered 7! haha. And paid for a total of 140 pesos, that’s for 7 soft cover photobooks already! But here’s the trick, the coupon entitles you for a 1,200 pesos off in Photobook but excluding shipping and handling, which by the way, costs Php 250 per shipment, at isa lang kada shipment, I believe. So here’s the breakdown of what I actually paid for a 40-pages 6×6 inches mini-square softcover photobook:
Coupon price (Metro Deal) – Php 20
Shipping & handling fee – Php 250
TOTAL – Php 270.00
|These came in 2 sizes: the bigger I got the bigger one for 650 pesos after the discount (I chose the wrong size, lol), And the smaller one, was the one I got for free + 250 s&h fee|
That’s a great deal for me already, because the total cost should’ve been for Php 1, 450. Yikes! Too expensive for me! Magpapaprint nalang ako sa labas at bili ng photo album! haha! Why is the s&h fee expensive? Because it came straight from Malaysia pa pala!
Here’s what I like about Photobook Philippines:
1. Too many options to choose from – literally! You can order a photo book (hardcover & soft cover), frames, refrigerator magnets, pillows, mugs and a whole lot more! You can get them customized for you, it’s amazing!
2. User-friendly website – when choosing to order a photo book, no matter what size it is, you can choose to either have your own layout, or choose a blank layout, or choose among the many layouts they have available online.
3. Discounts, discounts and more discounts – check their website, and you will see they have so many discounts available for their customers. Or check Metro Deal, they also have existing promos for Photobook. If I just have more money, I would’ve printed more and ordered more already, but of course, I have to make sure everything is in budget so I’m taking this little by little. lol.
The only problem I see with Photobook Philippines is that they print and ship straight from Malaysia via DHL, which is why it costs more to ship it to their customers here in PH. I wish they’d open an office here in the Philippines soon so they can get more customers with a chopped off price in shipping and handling.

Nevertheless, my first order and shipment with Photobook Philippines is great, and I have 5 more coupon codes to use for my next order! I’m making another layout now so I can send more photo books to Dane when his brother goes to KSA (God-willing!). 🙂
