Ratings and Reviews
Great pictures, be careful of sizing
I’m really happy with my order and experience with Parabo overall. The app was easy to use, and I got 58 pictures (including shipping) for $18. I was emailed on August 1st saying my order was being shipped and would get here in 10-15 days. I got it on August 6th, so I’m really happy with that. The pictures are printed on matte paper, which is great since you don’t have to worry about fingerprints (especially since mine are gonna be in my dorm). Also, the prints come in a nice resealable bag, so it’s easy to put them away if you’re using them to decorate a dorm like I am.
That being said, you have to be careful with the sizing of the pictures. Since it’s a square print, if your picture isn’t square things can be cut out. The app doesn’t have a sizing/crop option so you have to make sure to think of it yourself. They do tell you it’s a square print though, so it’s my fault really, but just as a warning, make sure you resize/crop your pictures before uploading them in the app.
Overall, very happy with my order, and if I want more pictures or a photo book I will definitely get it from them.
Great experience with customer service team
I had a great experience with parabo. I've ordered with them before when I was in high school and I loved the prints. They are great quality and it would be a cool way to use their pictures for decorations. Recently I've ordered another photo book and I was contacted by the team to ensure that I the images that I picked were actually proportioned the way I wanted it. They wanted to take the time to make sure that my book was going to be perfect. I was able to review the order and confirm that it was exactly the way I wanted it. I wanted to make a slight change in the title and I honestly thought that I would have to cancel the whole order and start over (something I vehemently wanted to avoid) but they were able to change the title and not cancel the order! They made sure that I knew that usually this isn't the case but they were able to make the exception for me. Shipping is a tad bit expensive for my taste but they usually have their prints free and I got my soft cover book for free so I really didn't mind the shipping cost. Great customer service team, great quality pictures. It's a small start up company with a lot of potential to go above and beyond.

10/10 customer service is top notch
Eliana, customer helper reached out to let me know the photos I chose for the order I placed might not be the best option if I’m looking for crisp high quality prints (which I was.) She encouraged me to send higher resolution photos or new photos all together if I wanted to keep my order for engineer prints. I found higher res photos to which I sent back to her and another customer service angel, Christina hit me back making suggestions on some prints that might work better for the photos I wanted to use. She offered to re-fund my initial order and issued me another credit for my first ever order. It couldn’t have been easier. Parabo is cool but their customer service is excellent. I don’t know much about photo printing other than I like it—and I have a lot of photos of my cats that I’d like to have all over my home but Parabo makes it easy and is totally available to help if you have questions. I am really looking forward to my oder to arrive so I can place more! Definitely download the app and get your pictures off your phone and on your walls.
