I am planning on using Shutterfly to create a guest book with our engagement photos. Has anyone used them? Any specific upgrades I should consider?
I plan on using black pages so people can sign with a gold sharpie.
Also, does anyone know if they allow multiple coupons? I have a $20 credit from David’s Bridal and also purchasing a groupon for $17 8×11 photobook. I know that means I would get money back but I am also going to do upgrades…Just wondering if that is something they would allow.

@SouthernBee33: Hi, sorry, I just saw this. We just ordered a guestbook through them, awaiting for it to come in the mail. I googled copuons and got a TON. I got 50% off, free upgrade to expedited shipping OR free shipping, free prints, etc. You can use multiples as long as they are not the same category (ex.. two shipping coupons)

Google and get as many coupons as possible. I believe you can use more than one because I always have. I highly suggest using the lay-flat in leather photobook but you have to wait for this coupon because most of time the 40% off photo books does not include that one but you can occassionally find the one that does, just be patient.

Yes. I did this very thing! It was a great hit. I didn’t try black pages tho. I used standard pages with lines for sign in on a few pages and had a decorative pen for guests to write with. I didn’t see that shutterfly let there be multiple coupons or discounts tho.

We did this and it worked out really well. Be careful because the sharpie might smudge since the pages are glossy. I would go for white pages so you can use other pens if the sharpie doesn’t work out. You can use as many coupons on you want. I would recommend paying the extra for the lay flat pages. It will make it easier for people to sign.

Be careful with Sharpies – they aren’t archival quality and may eventually change colors. Look in the scrapbooking section to find a archival quality pen in a color that you like instead. Many of these are great for writing light colors on dark papers and the color will stay truer.

Thanks everyone for the great advice!
I will get the lay flat pages… because you are right, it will be harder to sign if I don’t get them.
