Photograph Books

Postby steelfrog » Tue Feb 07, 2012 2:45 pm

Howdy--does anyone have a recomemndation for the best on-line service where I could design and "publish" a hardback book with my own pics, etc? I am making books for the kids to memorialize our trips, and don't much know where to start. I know blurb.com does this and maybe adorama.com

My wife and I do picture "yearbooks" every year and we use Blurb. We've been really pleased with how they turn out.

+1 Blurb.com, I have made a couple different books both hardcover and softcover, very happy with both.

I've used Picaboo and was happy with the results. I'd keep a look out for Groupon type deals. A lot of online photobook companies seem to be advertising this way.

I would be cognizant of the number of pages you add, the price shoots up pretty quick if you're not careful.

I used Picaboo to make a 14ers book in the fall. I highly recommend it. Easy to use. Quick production time. After you download the program, they will send coupons and discount through email very frequently. My only complaint is that after 50 pages the program ran considerably slower than when I had fewer pictures loaded into it. I am working on a book through Photobook America because of a groupon... and it's not been fun.

Another vote for Blurb. 100% customizable and great quality. I've used Shutterfly as well, but would easily choose Blurb over them.
