If you can convert the files into JPEGs then you can definitely use MyPublisher.  Just choose the custom album option and upload each page individually to the album.  I add my own backgrgounds and full flush mount pages easily with their program.

One issue with My Publisher – their lay flat pages aren’t very good.  Usually layflat pages are sort of seamless.  The My Publisher pages are actually two seperate pages that have a square fold.  So there is a gap.  I’ve tried it once and was very unsatisfied.

I use My Publisher a ton and am generally a huge fan, but their lay flat pages are a major opportunity for improvement.

@palu002:  Zook Binders would be my second choice but I’m not sure if they still work with amateurs or require a licensed photographer to order.  Plus, they do more traditional albums instead of storybook albums.

Adoramapix has everything on your list,  apart from a linen cover.  I have just ordered my wedding album,  I designed the pages in Photoshop and uploaded them as Jpegs as double page spreads. 

Mine is a 10 x 10  but there are 8 x 8,  6 x 6,  and 12 x 12……like you,  I prefer square.  

There are also many other sizes in landscape and portait shapes.  

They have lay flat pages  and the pages are printed on fuji crystal photographic paper,  and are very stiff.  Not quite cardboard,  but very much thicker than Mypublisher. Because they are printed on actual photo paper,  the images are clearer and brighter,  ulike mypublisher and blurb  that prints on normal lustre paper.  

I think there are limits on page counts ….. I think you have to order  14, 28, 50 or 76 pages……and not much else inbetween,  so if you can design your pages and photos to fit within these page counts,  your laughing. 

The cover options are…photo wrap,  leather  or leather lux….  

but the price and quality …I have been told,  are amazing.  I am certainly surprised at the low cost of mine……just waiting to receive it to see if it is as fabulous as everyone says they are.
