Is anyone thinking about using Blurb to make their guestbook?
I’ve never seen a blurb book but love the great reviews it gets- my question is- will the paper be too thin to have people sign it- OR will the paper be too glossy to hold the ink?

I think it’s a great idea…maybe you can call them up and ask for a sample of the paper?
You could include your story, your vows, your e-pics, questions for your guests…oh the possibilities are endless!

OHHHHHHHHH – Angel you are a GENIUS! I didn’t even THINK about putting text with fun questions on them.
OH i’m giddy over it now!!

They mention it as an option on their website, I think, and suggest using fine point sharpies instead of regular pens. I’d still consider having a book attendant to make sure the pages are dry before they’re flipped.
I’m thinking of doing this myself, it makes it more interesting to me. Something I’d really want to keep out where I’d see it more often.

I’m doing this but using IPhoto book. A friend is lending me her Mac to work on it.

iphoto book? I must here about this–my new shiny mac is waiting for me to use its endless uses.
I’m thinking about using a Blurb book too–I like the thought of having a coffee-like table book with my e-pics plus guest comments from my wedding. I love Miss Chicadee’s book. It makes me smile. And I agree with OnlySupernova: fine point Sharpies and guest book attendent.

You can use iPhoto on your mac to make a book – there’s a little button for ‘projects’ or something like that. You can make books, calendars and a whole bunch of schtuff!

I’ve ordered books from Kodak, iPhoto, and Blurb and for the purposes of a guestbook I would recommend Blurb and am going to use it myself. It has the most formatting and text vs. picture layouts of any of the programs. And it has an application that you download to your computer where you design the book and then when you’re completely finished you upload it to Blurb. This saves the timeconsuming hassle of uploading pictures that you eventually don’t use. The quality of the paper is great – it is a semi-matte so not high gloss. It is definitely thick enough to withstand a felt-pen like a sharpie. I would recommend Blurb over Kodak and iPhoto because you have much more control and layout options. Blurb also comes with a photo-customizable dust-jacket cover which (the last time I checked) neither Kodak or iPhoto offered.
