I bought the digital negatives from my photographer, and I have 200 or so 4×6 photos I printed from these. I’m trying to find a nice album to put these in. All the ones I find in stores have those “Memo” sections, which I don’t want. Any ideas for places to get a nice album that’s not outrageously expensive? I’m also thinking about getting a scrapbook-type album and putting them in with photo corners, but I have no experience with scrapbooking. Has anyone done that? I’d love to see photos if you have them. Thanks!

I would check out Michaels. I got a really nice one that will hold 180 4 X 6 prints; two prints to a page; front and back. It has wording on the front and back that says “Live every moment, laugh everyday, and… Love beyond words…
It measures approximately 8 X 9 and has a burgundy ribbon with a Victorian theme. They had a lot of other nice one that were bigger and smaller too. I think I only paid about 6 or 8 dollars for mine.

+1 for michaels and if you have the digital negs then maybe check out mpix.com or blurb.com and put together a photo book 🙂

i second if you have the digitial copies to create an album. we made ours with myplublisher.com and not only are they very reasonably priced and great quality… their customer service is second to none. we’ve gotten nothing but compliments on our albums.

I also suggest getting a photo book printed. It’s pretty economical considering the cost of printing hard copies.
Here is a article that someone wrote about the different features of photo books that they ordered. We choose Adoramapix personally (got a 10×10 book for about $70).

I looked at store albums for a while, and even though I found a good variety at CVS, I decided none was big enough to hold my 300 photos and as nice as I want. Like the PP’s suggested, I went the online album route and couldn’t be happier. It gave me the flexibility to blow up some pics full page while keeping the others small enough to fit several to a page. I posted about the finished product here with several images: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/i-finally-finished-photo-recap-with-adoramapix-album

Thanks for the ideas! I think I will definitely do some photo books (guess what everyone’s going to get for Christmas lol). I do have a bunch of pics already printed, though, so I’m definitely looking for a photo album too, though.
