I made a really nice photo guestbook through AdoramaPix.com I love their thick, lay flat pages!  They have great preset layouts and the photos look amazing since every page is really nice, thick photo paper.

I made wedding albums through MyPublisher for our parents.  They have a ton of different layouts to choose from, and I was able to fit a ton of pages/photos in their books.  They also have lay flat pages, but the paper that they are printed on is not as thick as adorama.  The paper is high quality and very professional looking.  We chose them for the parent albums because they have really nice linen or leather cover options, while adorama just has a glossy picture cover.

 

We used AdoramaPix.com to print our wedding and engagement pictures.  They are affordable and very high quality.  Many photographer use them for all their photo printing needs.  And they have a storefront in NYC so I was able to pick up my photos and engagement book in person. ๐Ÿ™‚

Just so you know the difference, the quality albums that REAL pro photographers typically offer are called flush mount.  They have pages that are very thick, do not bend, and lay flat.  The pages are printed on professional photographic paper and then mounted on archival board.  Most of these are hand bound and sewn using book binding techniques.  These books are very durable are made to last for years.

The books that consumer labs typically print are called press printed.  Actual photographic paper is not used, the pages are an archival paper.  They bend easily, and are quite thin.  They are typically glued into the binding so the integrity of the book depends on that glue.

If you are looking for something to last yrs and yrs, I would go flush mount for sure.  If you don’t, definitely buy two copies and keep one tucked away and un-used.  The few press printed books I have tend to show a lot of wear after little use.
