Photo book experiences?

Posted on June 17, 2009. Filed under: Uncategorized |

In preparation for our hometown reception over the fourth of July weekend, I’m checking out options for printing a good quality but reasonably priced photo book… or five.

I’ve picked through a thousand SOOC (straight out of camera, for those of you who don’t follow Mrs. Avocado’s blog) photos and chosen about a hundred favorites, and our photographer is editing them as we speak.  I want to put together a wedding scrapbook for our peeps who couldn’t make it to the actual shindig to peruse plus a couple of keepsake albums for each of our parents, all in less than a few weeks’ time.

Oh, and did I mention they need to be reasonably priced?  We’re suffering through the post-wedding broke-ness.  Big time.

I’m also toying with the idea of excerpting blog posts (yes, from this blog) and turning them into a book just for he and I… since there’s no way it’d pass the cheese test and be left out in public.

I’m not particularly graphically inclined, so while I can cut and paste and crop with the best of ’em, I have absolutely positively no eye for layout.  A not too cheesy template is necessary, fo sho.

Help a girl out?  Have you used and liked any of the following:

I used Picaboo for my guestbook and was pretty pleased. It was reasonably priced and the turnaround was lightning fast. The quality was acceptable for a guestbook (or other casual use) but I’ll be scoping out other options for my final keepsake album.

I’m going with Blurb for my honeymoon photo book. They have a nice selection of templates!

I used Blurb with premium paper and was very happy with the final product. Many templates to choice from and the prices were very fair. I just ordered another round of the same book for presents… I’m kind of late getting around to getting them all out 🙂

I used Blurb to create a photo book for my mom from a vacation we took to Alaska last summer. The quality is amazing. They have a huge selection of templates and the interface is very easy to use. The prices were good as well. I would highly recommend them. I had had a bad experience with a different photo book company where my entire project got ‘lost’ in their computer system and was not recoverable. So I felt better that with Blurb it is saved on your machine as well as sent off into cyberspace.

[…] Hey, all.  Remember me?  I was the one who blogged about Twister and going to Brazil.  And then y’all gave me your input on photo books because you’re so sweet.  {And then I might have fallen on the face of the blog-earth […]

    I’ve been there, done that, got the t-shirt (and divorce papers) to prove it. Here I am again, pledging my life to my (new) love with eyes wide open (and heart racing) knowing full well how emotionally traumatic this can end… and doing it anyway.
