    Any comments for those who have printed with both?

    I know Queensberry is a bit pricier, but i'm assuming its worth it for the thicker paper stock alone?

    A lot of people have moved to VisionArt. Is price/margin the main/only reason?

    I moved away from Queensberry for about a year already mainly due to the fact that I had to pay around 50 bucks extra per album to get 3 sample pages sent to me for colour check up prior to making the final album. Too many problems if I didn't do it.

    I prefer the VA style, they're cheaper, ultra fast, amazing customer service, free postage, heavily discounted samples...what's not to love :D

    The two are vastly different products I'm not sure how to compare them.

    Could you elaborate on how they are different?

    I'm talking QB Flushmount vs VA Original Fine Art Book.

    From what i can tell VA is only marginally cheaper (crappy exchange rates) but has an inferior paper stock?

    Have you put money where your mouth is and ordered samples? Most of us have and that is where our opinions come from. Their binding patents are entirely different. Printing is different. Paper stock is totally different.

    Yep they are great. Matches my brand too and my style.

    You should join some actual wedding groups if you are going to give it a go.

    Thanks for the input everyone.

    Guess i'll have to actually get some albums printed.

    I have a few client albums to print this year so will try out both. Probably going to go with Queensberry first.

    What are these wedding groups you are referring to?
