    Hey ladies,

    A few years ago I compared photobooks pretty extensively for a big trip we took. I probably compared 5 or 6 book options and finally chose photo.com - premium photo printing, sharing and organization because of the classy cover and exquisite binding. They're not overly expensive and there are lots of options for how to arrange photos on each page.

    What i liked about the cover is that they have an option for a hard colored cloth cover with a square/rectangle cutout that shows your photo from the first page. The colors are sharp and the photos are crisp.

    I've taken to making a photo book every year at Christmas (to give to my fi)to capture our year of photos. I always go with a black cloth cover. The books haven't shown any signs of age and I've been really pleased with them.

    Hope that provides at least one more option out there!
    Cheers,
    Clara

I chose to use the photo cover. I do wish there was an option to design your own pages in addition to using their templates for inserting pictures. There are many backgrounds to choose from, but by the time I chose them for all the pages, I was wishing for more.
      i agree, i felt really limited by the templates. now i use lumapix to design the pages & then upload them into the one pic per page template.

        Great info! This is really helpful as I was just starting to research what site to use. I think I'll go with Shutterfly now!
