@april13th:  I don’t think it’s inferior! Shutterfly does beautiful photobooks.  I myself used adoramapix to make my wedding album – love their quality, and they’re decently priced!

Photo Books and Photo Albums are two completely different products. So it’s like comparing apples to oranges. It’s like debating between getting a Vespa or a Limo…. they’ll both get you where you want to go, but in completely different ways.

It’s really all about whether you want thin magazine-type paper or hard cardboard-type paper. A lot of us splurge for the flush mount because the hard paper feels more like a classic photo album rather than a hardcover magazine.

In terms of photo quality, if you do a photobook I would not do shutterfly – I’ve tried a few companies including Shutterfly and found that PhotobookAmerica was the best. Mixbook is also supposed to be really good. Check out Photobookgirl, she and a few other people online do some great comparveisons of different companies.

For flushmount, I did a whole post on my experience in the hive which I posted about here.

These are really two different things. If you want a book that will alst your lifetime and maybe even be worth keeping for your children or grandchildren, you should get the flush-mount. If not, then a quality (i.e. not Shutterfly) photobook is fine. I’d get one that uses higher quality paper and processing than Shutterfly for something as important as a wedding album. Shutterfly, in my opinion, is fine for the album of your weekend trip to the Bahamas, but isn’t nice enough for a wedding album. Plus, you can get similar prices for better quality with other companies. Even the Apple albums are a step up.

@april13th:  I’d never heard of Bridebox, was just glancing at their site out of curiousity and noticed they have the same album names (Marina, Anza) as Myphotocreations – I wonder if they’re connected? Watch out though, mpc is expensive.
