Here are a few pages from our 2007 book. Just so you know ... these are all pictures from before I had the magic of Lightroom at my beck and call. So these are SOOC or converted to b&w or sepia with iPhoto and the printer does a terrific job with them as is.
So here is my family. My dear ol' Daddy with his favored Lemondrop. My cousins and the beautiful girls they married. My Uncle. My Grammy. Unfortunately my Aunt is hiding on the folded-over portion, and my Mom and I don't show up til the next page.
And here's our whole Washington family. And the white Christmas we got to share. Too much fun. Oh yeah. And Lightroom had officially rocked my photographic world on this trip.
Enter 2008 ...
So here's the 4-1-1. I used MyPublisher.com. I think they do a terrific job for a reasonable price. If you use them, be sure and look online for coupons. Costco offers a 20% discount. Often MyPublisher runs a buy one book, get the 2nd free. Or 40% off orders over $100. To give you an idea: each of these books was about 100 pages (the max number they'll allow in one book). I got 40-50% off each order. Each page ended up costing about $.50!!!
edited to add: each of these pages, except the floral pages, are just standard lay-outs (drag & drop) from MyPublisher. The floral pages I designed first in my Lumapix software and then "dragged" them in as a single .jpg photo.
