photo books from mypublisher.com
i was raised by a scrapbooking mother. she put little captions and cute stickers in those old sticky photo albums way back when and later began selling and hosting parties for creative memories from our home. we always took tons of photos then printed them, chose the best ones, cut them into cute shapes and glued them into albums for everyone to see. whenever i came home for a visit in college, mom always had a new photo album for me to page through.
i love looking through those old albums, and i have several of my own. oh the hours that went into making each and every one of them!
i made two scrapbooks for mariah…one for her first month and another for the rest of her first year. it was a long process as scrapbooking usually is, but i was so glad to have printed pictures of and for my family. something tangible that brings us together unlike sitting around a computer screen. the only downside – those things are huge!
but then i got
lazy busy. my pictures sat on the computer for too long. we printed a few for our photo wall, but that was it.
after much searching and discussion with my husband (who grew up with those slide-in albums), we decided a coffee table book we could make digitally would be the best option. then as i always do, i started researching to find the best company. i’d make a book with blurb.com before, but wasn’t pleased with the quality. i read through this review from the daily digi and this one from digital home pouring over every detail they presented.
final decision….my publisher.
i’m THRILLED with the results. great layout options, outstanding photo colors and page quality (i upgraded to premium paper), beautiful full color cover. there is an option to have lay flat pages, but for me it’s not something i feel i need.
i made my 2010 album in october of 2011, and just completed our 2011 book this month.
take a look at the newest one:
i highly recommend them for your yearly albums, as well as birth story or wedding albums. using the software to drag and drop photos into their layouts is easy as can be. and they ALWAYS have great coupon codes and deals. (both times i waited for the “right” code so i could save 50% on my books)
i could go on and on about them….i’m so happy we decided to make coffee table books and to print with mypublisher.com. and now every year when my mom comes to visit, i’ll have an album for her to page through.Pin It
