I haven’t, but I’m curious to hear if anyone has…I am going to make my guest book on Picaboo, and possibly the parent albums too. Sorry I don’t have an answer but at least I can bump you up!

Since there’s a Picaboo give away today, thought I’d bump this up in case anyone new has used them. I’d love to know about their quality too 🙂

Ditto Julialimei… I’d love to hear if anyone has ordered one of their flush mount albums.

I don’t know anything about Picaboo’s flush mount albums but if they are anything like the quality of their regular photobooks then I would say find a different site to get your album from.

I was looking into photobook websites for making my guestbook and I will be making a wedding album the same way.  I found a really extensive review of about a dozen photobook sites (guy made the same album on all sites and compared quality).  Picaboo was one of his worst of all the reviewed sites!

Here’s the link to the article if you want to take a look: http://www.digitalhomethoughts.com/news/show/97676/the-great-photo-book-round-up-review-who-makes-the-best-photo-books.html (It is really long, but totally worth the read if you’re looking to make you own album!)

That article is great, very informative. I think the Picaboo review is talking about thier “photobooks” though and not the flushmount albums which (I think) are printed using a different process.

@lc2be – yeah, that review is just their regular photobooks, not flush mount.  For me though, I don’t know that I’d personally be able risk my money and spend all my time using a site that receives poor reviews on a similar product to what I wanted. 

I’ve also been looking at some options for flush mount albums for when I have my wedding pictures and have been very intrigued with Somerset Albums: http://www.somersetalbums.com/index.asp  I’ve heard good things about their product and the pricing seems very competitive for a flush mount album.  You guys might want to check it out as another option!

Thanks for the link aliciareneephotography. I also noticed that Somerset uses “leatherlike” material for the cover, not leather.

I’m a big fan of Mpix. I pretty much have everything printed through them. I’ve even gone so far as to design a gallery wrap! Their books are really well made – I designed a coffee table book for my Mom’s 50th birthday last year and it came out GORGEOUS!

I just got my Picaboo book in the mail! (although it’s not a flush mount, sorry!!)

@futureKMM, that article was absolutely awesome! I can’t believe that guy did all that work, wow!

But… I do think that Picaboo must’ve updated their software or something since the review, because there were all kinds of warnings and visible lines that would let me know when I was going out of the “safe” zone.

I am more than pleased with my book! I love it. It’s just a 22 page book of our first year together. So, just fyi, if you are looking to get a book, I had no issues with Picaboo whatsoever. And, there’s an offer out there currently for a FREE book, you just pay $8.99 shipping… heck yeah!

Just wanted to let people know that I did order a flush mount album from picaboo. It came today and I am thrilled with it. I was able to make a 23 page book (probably 70+ photos) and I had a coupon code for free shipping and 15% off. It was about $325, which I think is a huge savings as most photographers get at least $800 for them. The program was easy to use and I am not very savy with things like that. I did have a ton of photos and the files were huge which caused things to freeze up a few times. I would suggest doing any edits before hand and saving all the picutres that you want in the album to one folder on your desktop. The switching in and out to get photos also slowed it down.

I’ve never ordered from Picaboo, but I know someone who has ordered photobooks from Shutterfly and they look great! Just a thought – you might want to check them out too 🙂

We ordered our engagement picture album from picaboo – I am THRILLED with how it turned out! We got a groupon ($25 for $100 credit) and were able to get three classic books (with the photo covers) and still have $20 credit left.

The program was super easy to use and the quality is great. Shipping was super quick too.

I wish I would have waited a week as now they offer “lay-flat” pages for all of their books, but oh well. I will definitely be using them again.
