My 3yo son and I attended Amelia’s Christmas Jar Lamp workshop at Goodman Arts Centre. She’s most patient, gentle and encouraging with all the participants, old and young (there were three 3yo kids in the class). She gave clear instructions and useful tips to help us achieve the look we wanted for our customised jars (we could choose the design and colour). The materials she provided were of good quality too, mostly imported from the US. Would not hesitate to attend future workshops with Amelia!Cheryl L

Location/Directions: It is very near Exit F of Chinatown MRT station. As you come up from the escalator, you will be directed to turn left to Upper cross street and you will exit the station. Immediately turn right and follow the curved road until you are behind where you started. Cross the road and go straight a little to reach Kim Tian Colour Centre. Why Kim Tian Colour Centre? This is actually where you collect your order from Milligram prints. They both carry the same address.
Quality: I went with Instax mini to be printed on card paper and I will say the quality is great. It's my first time making such prints and I will say it meets or even exceeds my expectations. Though printing on card paper will flatten the photos a bit, I need the paper to be stiff, hence my choice. If I ever need to make any more prints, I'll go back to them.Douglas Lin

I'm no influencer and wasn't even asked to write a review, but I was so blown away by their professionalism and so happy with my wedding album that I'm here to give them 5 stars! My wedding flat-lay album was perfect beyond belief - loved how user-friendly their project function was, which allowed perfectionist me to customise the position of each photo even down to one decimal place. Love the luxe feel of the pages and the quality of the resolution. Do not even think twice about printing your photos with AP!Sheralyn (via Google Reviews)
