i used software to make the layout here:

LumaPix FotoFusion - Share your digital photos by email!

 

 

Well i finally got my wedding book. i desgined it myself instead of going through mypublisher.com or kodakgallery because i read that the quality wasn't as good...also i wanted to be very specific with my layout.

 

Quality of book (A++): the book i ordered is big. 12" x 12". The linen cover is beautiful, the binding is solid and clean (some pics of a mypublisher books i saw the binding was all funky). Also, you can add these great feature like beautiful black pages in the cover or have your name and wedding date imprinted into the leather with silver or gold emboss.

 

Quality of print (A++): i chose a glossy print and the book looks so professional. I had some full bleed pics that were very large and there was no problem with the pics looking pixelated or the color being off.

 

Price (A): i knew i would have to pay more than kodak for a better quaility book but was surprised that i only paid about 10% more than at kodak.

 

Customer service (A++++++): i have never had customer service so good. the CEO would email me within hours each time i emailed with a stupid question. Also, my MIL wanted to open an account and take the pages of my book BUT also add some more pages and he very easily transferred my pages into her account so she could do this (with my permission, of course Click the image to open in full size.). Also, the day AFTER i placed my order i found out i messed up and he stopped the printing when i begged him and fixed it for me.

 

here are some pics of the book:

Tammy it looks awesome, did you come up with the layout and everything? I've been trying to decide if I want to scrapebook our wedding album or do something like you did. Was it real expensive?

That's not bad at all, I was looking at just the really nice albums for a scrapbook and they run about $140.00 and that's before you start adding everything else into it. WOW, you gave me some food for thought... Did they just work with the file Juan gave you?

yes, you need high res pics and juans are perfect...it was awesome because some pages are just 1 giant pic that bleeds to the edges...you can make fancy edges, add sayings...i did one page with alot of small pics...some bigger..so much flexibility!

WOW, I just looked at the website and I didn't see the 12 x 12 you did, and it said their books start at 12 pages (but two sided so 24).. Maybe I was looking at something different. OMG I would take me forever to figure out how to fill 60 pages, I'm not doing before shots of the wedding so it'll just be ceremony pics, B & G pics, and misc family pics.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
