Last week I got an email from Shutterfly (I am on their mailing list) letting me know that they had a free book special on! It was valid for a hard cover 8×8 book. Of course I had to jump on that, and it was perfect because with Calvin’s birthday coming up, I could do the whole book of his first year! So I quickly got to work since I only had a couple days until the coupon code was no longer valid.
I just finished and ordered it, and am excited for it to come! I have made one other book like this, when I got the same offer from TripAdvisor as a thank you for writing travel reviews. It was supposed to be for making a photo book of vacation memories, but I used it for wedding photos instead. What can I say, I didn’t have any wedding photos printed yet, so I took advantage of an opportunity given to me.
These books are nowhere near fancy, and I really don’t put that much effort into them (especially this new one since I could really only work on it during nap time), but they are fun to have and flip through once in a while.
I find Shutterfly okay to use. There are things that I would change if I had a choice, but it does the trick.
Have you made photo books online? What sites do you use?
