(Closed) Blurb covers?

I just put in my order for our wedding photo books, and this is how I figured it:

 Hard vs. softcover: Hardcover is fancier and more durable, so if it’s going to mostly sit on a shelf, softcover is probably fine, but if it’ll be out on your coffee table where it will get a lot of handling, maybe hardcover is better?  But if you’re book is 30 pages or less, that’s really only 15 sheets of paper, and such a slim hardcover book might look odd?  I dunno, that was my reasoning =P

Dust jacket or imagewrap: I chose imagewrap just because then your cover art is printed directly on the book, and I think it’ll look nicer that way.  Also, one of the big reasons I chose hardcover was for durability, so a dust jacket would sort of negate that, since it’ll get worn easily.

So, I chose hardcover, imagewrap for our bigger 8×10, 60+ page book, and softcover for our parents’ 7×7, 25 page books.

 Wow, that was longer than I planned =P  Hope that helps!

Although I can’t comment on the quality of the books I will say my reasoning is the same as peihan17. 

So I will be ordering a 8×10 (probably 70+ pages) hardcover imagewrap book too.

I think 45 pages is more than enough for a hard cover though.
