So when I reviewed my vendors on WeddingChannel.com I was given a promo code to get a free 8×8 20-page album on Shutterfly.com plus 50 free prints when I signed up for the account!
I am excited but am just wondering – has anyone else used them? Are they decent quality? I don’t want to waste a lot of time on the album if it isn’t going to be any good!
Btw – if you’ve used them and liked them, how difficult was your album to create?

Hi! I use shutterfly all the time! I made my parents and Father-In-Law a photo book with all our engagement photos in it and it turned out great 🙂 You can either do an automatic book flow and they will load your pics for you, or you can customize the entire book yourself ( I did this and I probably spent 8-10 hours on it!) They also have great customer support! We did our STD through them and they were great. Hope this helps!

yup! I have dozens of shutterfly books (that i got for free from their codes) and I love them, especially now that they have the totally customizable path. If you’re used to making photobooks, it can be pretty quick, I can whip one out in like an hour or 2 now. First time it took me maybe a few hours.. but totally be worth the time.

I used Shutterfly for photobooks for my parents and my in laws for Christmas… I was SO impressed with them! I loved them and was really happy that I got to design my own books – I was able to make them in our wedding colors, etc… In fact just a couple hours ago, I told my Darling Husband that I wanted to order one for us too… I got one from my photographer – That one is very elegant, clean lines, etc… I just tend to like things to be more decorated, colorful etc 🙂 SO I wanted another one! I’m also thinking of doing one from there (they often have coupon codes for deals on photobooks) with our engagement pictures 🙂

Ive used them as well. Just check because they do crop the photo a little bit when they print it. Once I ordered cards and they forgot the envelopes so they resent me the whole order. Always good deals if you get the emails.

I really wanted lay flat pages for my wedding album but since I also got a free shutterfly album, I used it to make a honeymoon album and I absolutely love it! I just wouldn’t personally use it for a wedding album, but I plan to make future photo books in the future using shutterfly, so I definitely recommend them!

I made albums for my mother and Mother-In-Law with shutterfly and loved them. the mothers love them, and they were pretty easy to make. I mean, the books aren’t pro quality, but for the price, they’re great.

I’m using my “free” Shutterfly photo book coupon to make my Guest Book for the wedding – using the engagement pictures and they have some premade templates for signture lines and such

I got a free 8x8too and used it to make a small book for dh’s grandma. Too small for an album for us and I wanted something higher quality for us though.

@78science: That’s what I did for my guestbook too! I got it from mixbook though. It turned out great and everyone loved it.
@SapphireSun: Yeah, I’m definitely planning on either doing just a cutesy coffee table book or one for my mom, etc, with the free coupon. We’re going to get our fancy schmancy one from our photog.
@pinkshoes: So I just spent almost 2 hours making mine (I have made them before on diff sites) and all of a sudden it just deleted my whole album! 🙁 I need to give it a rest for a few hours before I’ll be patient enough to make another. haha.
Glad people tend to like them!
Are their individual prints a decent-ish quality?

@AmeliaBedelia: Deleted? Did it not save it to your account at all? They usually autosave, so if you log back on, it’ll pop up and ask if you want to resume the saved project.

@sweetpea87: Nope, nada. :/ Grrrr. I saved it manually several times as well. Unless I’m a complete nutjob and I just can’t find it, haha. I was pretty much finished with it too! Bummer.
