    Default PhotoBooks, anyone try them??

    I want to do something nice for my husbands Grandmother for her 90th. I'm hoping to do a photobook so that she has something she can look at after the big party. I want her to have those memories of everyone who was there to help her celebrate.
    I'm going to be the photographer.....hopefully I do well.

    Question I guess would be, has anyone had a book made by Wal Mart or any other type of photobook. I want one that can have the cover as a photograph with font and quality cover and pages.

    I have til this weekend to figure it out. so HEEELLLP! Thanks.

    I did a photobook a few years ago through a company in the states. Since then, a number of on-line retailers (www.photolab.ca, http://www.futurephoto.ca, www.easypix.ca to list a few) now offer these books so go to the site you plan to use to determine the requirements and pricing.

    These are fun to put together and look fantastic, but if you need your book by the weekend, you may be out of luck because a little more lead time is needed to do the books. I saw some DIY kits in a store a while back (sorry, I can't remember what store it was) , so that may be an option. I'm planning to do "coffee table" books of all our old photos (once I get them all scanned).

    Ordered a couple of Epsom Photo Books, we'll see how they work. I didn't like the ones at WalMart, they felt cheap and I want something to last and have a glossy cover.
    Wish me luck.
