Qustion on snapfish photobooks

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies! I am wanting to make my BM scrapbooks but these bound books look so much easieri. My question is what size is best.. i was thinking the 8x10 or the 5x7. Also i have some photos that say low resaloution, not recomended. did anyone have this too and did they come out okay?

 

Thanks Ladiessmile29.gif

If they say "low res" they will probably not look good. They only put up that warning when it's really low.

 

I think 5x7 books would be good for BM gifts unless you have a lot of pictures to use. Also, that way you can make them smaller so the resolution isn't a problem.

 

If you look on ebay, you can probably find cheap codes for 5x7 books that expire 3/31. They are for shutterfly though.

a red triangle or square pops up if it's too low res on shutterfly to warn you. You can put it in a smaller frame & see if you can still use it.

Also to let you know, the 5x7 Shutterfly books are not what I expected them to be. I had the idea they were going to be nice hardcover books like the ones I had previously ordered. When I got them in the mail (less than a week, I think) altho they looked nice, they were very very thin, soft cover books. The entire book was less than 1/4 inch thick, the cover (front&back) was no thicker than 100lb weight cardstock. The quality is very good, pics crisp and clear and true to color, but the book itself was just not what I was expecting! For $3.24 each tho, who can complain?! :)

 

I would recommend the 8x8 book, nice little size and, HARDCOVER!

I haven't ordered mine yet so I didn't know. That's too bad. I think it will still be nice for a little gift for my gma.

The 8x8 books have a hard cover. You can also put a big picture on the front.
