A number of subscribers have already asked me about the vendors I use for photo books.
My original two books were manufactured by “My Publisher.” You can get 20% off all orders if you download their software through “Costco.” I like their book quality and price, but the jacket can be damaged easily and they do not have a laminated image cover.
“Blurb” is a digital book publisher I used for my last two books. They have more options, such as the “image” cover, and they will actually sell books for you online. They also offer a premium paper as an option. I have been very happy with their product. They have their own software to download and send out coupons regularly for discounts.
There are a lot of others and their sizes, options and pricing structure are all different. Shutterfly, Inkubooks, Snapfish, Picaboo, and many others are online (digital photo books online). Even Kodak sells photo books online!
Blurb is probably most suited to the professional because of their production options.
Enjoy your new photo book!
