    @renwoman:  for our parents, we used shutterfly, and they turned out really nice! but for ours we wanted something with a LOT more pages, at a reasonable price, and our photographer recommended Artifact Uprising. their books are beautiful and because they’re a new small company their prices are very reasonable. i can’t wait to get our book in the mail. 🙂

    I got a photobook of our wedding on

    The price wasnt bad. it was pretty huge and had abour 60 something pages. It was a deluxe flat book. so when you layed it down. you couldnt see a seem at all!! The quality was great. They have promo all the time. I have used them before for calenders and my save the dates. my save the dates…. date changed and they let me order a whole new bunch for free!! and i didnt have to send in anything back so i got a lot of free envelopes. Because they are so understanding and custimer service was so great i went back. its funny how many pages are in there with 250 photos but looking at the book its so easy to flip threw that its hard to believe there are that many photos in the book.

    @renwoman:  LOVED Mixbook. And I ordered right around Cyber Monday time in 2012 so I got a killer discount. If you can catch the promos or deal they have going on I find its very reasonably priced.

    @renwoman:  I’ve ordered 3 books, one is a photo guest book that we ordered from Picaboo, it was more expensive but we got lay-flat pages and it turned out incredible! The others were from shutterfly and they’re memory books for my 2 bridesmaids. They are cute and fun, not quite as good of quality, but definitely good for the price!

    @renwoman:  I used Shutterfly and I love how the books look. I made a family oriented wedding album for my side of the family last Christmas and they loved them, especially as my grandpa had since passed. The quality is really great and it was very easy to use the formats they have and make changes.

    Sometimes they have specials around certain holidays where you can save quite a bit. Definitely keep an eye out.

    We used Artisan State and got three beautiful albums for around $600. One of the albums is a large 11×14 with a crystal cover. All the pages are really thick.

    I just received my order from Mixbook yesterday and we were very pleased! We ordered a 12×12 hardcover wedding album that lays flat.

    The quality is very good. The pages are thick and sturdy.

    The quality of the photos is very impressive. You can make out very small details that I haden’t originally noticed in the photos.

    There is a great array of backgrounds and personalization options!<br /><br />We also got a 50% off coupon (I think there’s another one on now) so it was very affordable.

    And the order was at our door (in Canada) in 6 business days!
