For Christmas I made a blurb book of my grandparents' posterity. I'm hooked now. No more paper crafting. No more scrapbooking. It's a simple, low frill way to do photo books.
I just finished Dean's first year. For a 102 pg. image wrap, hardcover book with premium pages (7X7 book), I was able to print 385 pictures for $40 total after delivery. The last time I printed out photos from Walmart it cost over $30, and I definitely didn't order 385 pictures! And then I had to pay for scrapbook paper and spend the time putting them in some sort of order.
Another great thing is you can purchase multiple books as gifts (mothers' day) or if you wanted a copy for yourself and your child(ren) you can do that too. Others can buy their own if they want. You can do soft cover, dust jacket, or image wrap. Regular or premium paper. You can make money off your books if you want. If I'd done a soft cover book it would have only cost about $20! Anyway, I sound like an add for them. Like I said, I'm hooked.
You can preview the first 15 pages or so of Dean's book here.
