Hi ladies!!! I missed you all so much!!! I have been so busy since we got back from the honeymoon...
It came in the mail yesterday afternoon and I'm super happy with how it turned out. I ordered it from Walgreens using a 50% off coupon code they sent. The quality is good. Better than Walmart and Shutterfly. However, when files are enlarged, they tend to be slightly pixilated. You can opt to upload high resolution images, but the result is still the same. This book is 8x11 inches, so it may not be an issue on the smaller books. However, I knew that this would be my "Brag Book" for work and church so that all the people that weren't invited and/or didn't come could see photos and share "Our Sweet Day"
Plus, Walgreens photobook software is the easiest program to use, so it only took a little over an hour, opposed to the 10 hours I spent on Printer Pix for the parents Memory Books. I will NEVER use them again - OMG I was about to pull out my hair. The only saving grace is that their software gives you the option to set photos as the background. These photobooks better be the best quality ever or I will ask for my $9.00 refund - LOL. I found them on Groupon and then found out that they are in Europe so shipping takes 3 weeks. The things I will do to save some $$$
But I am still in the process of creating our custom Wedding Photobook. It will probably take me a month or so and I will have it professionally printed as our Keepsake. But the Brag Book for Walgreens will serve it's purpose. I don't think I'll want anyone to touch our Keepsake photobook. Just too darn OCD.
DIY Alert - creating your own photobooks online with shutterfly and all the others that have popped up will save you hundreds of dollars over having your photographer create them for you. The company I use for processing and creating my images from my photography start out at $150 for just a small book. That's just the cost. Not the marked up price that the photographer has to charge for their time it takes to create them. I know they look all shiny and nice when you meet with the photographer, but I'd invest in the copyright release cd over the photobook.
