Question about printing restrictions in making your own BD Photobook online
Posted 19 March 2009 - 09:22 AM
I was also planning to make my own photobook with one of the better online publishers such as Mpix, Picaboo, MyPublisher, or Blurb, etc. However, I do plan on having a few, urr...topless photos of myself (FH loves that part of my body). They will be tasteful and "arty" pics, not trashy ones, ala Juggs or anything, LOL.
I don't mind if the people who work at the publishers see them, but I do wonder if there are any restrictions on what kind of pictures they will publish. IE, whether they might refuse to publish BD or topless photos. None of them have any info on their websites that I could find. Anyone out there have any experience with this?

I would call & ask them their policy.
I have also found that they are very quick to respond to emails so you can also contact their customer support dept that way.
This would really be good info to know.

MPix also emailed me with their specific policy - my feeling is that all of these online places will have similar policies, that is, Boudoir photography that is tastefully done (not suggestive or explicit) should print just fine.
MPix Adult Content Policy:
"Unfortunately, what is objectionable to some is simply artistic expression to others - the distinction is not always clear. Mpix.com is a family run business and most of our work consists of weddings, portraits, and events. However, we receive significant numbers of tastefully done nudes and boudoir orders for printing and certainly have no objection to printing and delivering these. "

I agree with lolkitteh that artsy, tastefully done pics where you can tell they are professional will be fine.

Based on this, I am guessing that 99.9% of BD photography is not going to be an issue with DIY books with online vendors.
