    @CherryWaves:  I’ve used Shutterfly for other photo albums and the quality is good and they are efficient.  However, for wedding albums, I used Picaboo.  Their customer service dept was very helpful, they had a variety of layouts, and the ablums turned out very nice.

    I actually used Shutterfly, and I love them. I was going to go for one of the higher quality sites, but Shutterfly had a great sale, so I ordered books for the moms. The books look great, so I’m ordering ours from there too.

    Sorry, meant to add, I’ve had a really easy time making layouts for Shutterfly. I found it easy to work with, and I am happy with the quality of the books I received.

    Check out Blurb.com.  I love my Blurb book and I loved their tool for creating books.

    I picked it primarily because of price, but it is fantastic.  The last time I went to the dentist, everyone was raving about it.  Apparently my mom had brought it in on her last visit 🙂

    PS) Don’t forget to use coupons for whichever site you pick – http://www.retailmenot.com

    I used Mypublisher.com to do my sisters photobook for her wedding. My Future Sister-In-Law used that site too for her sister as a gift and she works for a professional photog who suggested it.

    I haven’t used any of them yet, but my friend raves about the album that she made on http://www.mixbook.com. I’m looking forward to making my own because the photogs charge an arm and a legt.

    I very highly recommend photobook America. I had my wedding albums done by them and they are really good quality. Also, they have regular groupons that can save you a lot of money on the books. For detailed reviews of different photobook companies, you should look up Photobook Girl’s blog.

    @Eve2011:  Agreed. I used Blurb for photo books and really liked them. The only downside is that a year later, the binding on one of the books is coming undone. The others are fine so that might be a fluke.

    @CherryWaves:  Adoramapix is head and shoulders above the quality of most of those other. Ompanies.  Pages are thick and printed on photographicpaper and bound accordion store so they lay flat. I used them for our copy of our wedding album. 

    I’be used mixbook, shutterfly and picaboo for other albums and they all have their pros and cons. 

    Mixbook I loved their software and embellishments, but found the actual paper it’s printed on a little thin, but stillseemed hard to rip.   Almost like our new polymer money  The colours were great though. 

    Picaboo Iground the software a little cumbersome and the actual printed version seemed a little redderbyte washed out than when I’d print our photos anywhere else. 

    I think shutterfly has the nicest printed product of the cheaper programs.

    I’m really really happy with our Adoramapix photo guest book. I went with them as a test run for our wedding and parent albums (mixbook was my original plan for the guest book). It’s pretty fabulous, good quality and I like the lay-flat pages.

    @CherryWaves:  I used Adoramapix for our wedding album. It was user friendly and had a number of templates to choose from. Overall really happy with the quality for the price.

    I would absolutely 100% recommend Adoramapix for something like a parent’s album. We used Shutterfly for a quickie guest book, and while it was nice for it’s purpose, the Adoramapix albums we made for our parents were head and shoulders above Shutterfly.

     

    PM me if you would be interested in the link to my parent’s album.
