Last week I wrote about how I had fallen into the photo book rabbit hole while making them for the kids as Christmas gifts. I’m still falling. I finished a third book for Cady last night and I’ve started a second one for James.
I just really love them. And I think they make perfect gifts for everyone on your list, from kids to grandparents to yourself. Shutterfly just makes it so easy and fun to make.
They have several different sizes and binding options to choose from and over 150 different styles that make it easy to customize your book to your needs, like baby, wedding, travel, holidays, sports, accomplishments… There is even a style called Pictogram that is perfect for all of those Instagram photos hanging out on your phone.
Two of the books I ordered came in yesterday and I was really impressed with the quality. They have improved the paper since the last time I purchased one. It is nice and thick. The colors are all vivid, and everything turned out exactly like I expected. My only advice, really, really proofread. They will print exactly what you ask them to. So if you write you when you meant your… Yeah. Hopefully Cady will overlook it.
Have I convinced you yet that you really, really need to make one of these for yourself? Well how about I give you a code for a free 8×8 hardcover photo book for yourself or someone on your list? Because I’m giving away TWO codes! Woohoo! Join me in the rabbit hole. It’s fun down here.
