Hi Appleblossom,

I’d recommend checking out blurb.com. I’ve read from a couple project wedding users that their books turn out amazing, and also have a friend whose Future Sister-In-Law used them to print her photo journal with fantastic results.

Are you looking for an empty album or the whole make-your-own online and have it printed?

Blurb.com allows you to make an amazinf coffee table book. I have started adding a coffee table book in my package as it looks better then an album.

MPix and Somerset both offer leather bound flush mount type albums to non-pro photographers. MPix calls this album their “assembled album.” (MPix also offers photobooks with thinner pages in the “press products” section of their website.) Both of these options have seams/borders, so you can’t do a two page spread like a lot of the professional-only flushmount albums. These albums are pricier than thinner paged photobooks, but not as expensive as most pro albums. These are the only flushmount albums I’ve been able to find that are available to the general public – anyone know any others?

If you’re looking for a leather bound photobook where the pictures are printed on thinner/nonboard pages, My Publisher, Kodak Gallery, Shutterfly and Snapfish (and some others) offer leather cover options. MPix offers this type of book with a suede cover. Blurb doesn’t offer leather covers. My Publisher, Kodak Gallery, Snapfish, MPix, Adoramapix, and several others all offer photobooks with image wrap covers or picture dust jackets, and a couple of them offer linen covers as well. I’ve personally only made this kind of book. I’ve used Kodak Gallery and MPix (standard page paper option) and I thought the quality was pretty similar for both. IMO Kodak’s paper seemed slightly thicker, MPix’s image quality seemed a little better. There are a bunch of reviews on these types of photobooks on WB and the interwebs in general 🙂

My photographer (Drinker Images) helped me make an album for less than $600 and it had almost 100 pictures in it.
