    So, I have to give a shout-out to the company MyPublisher.com. I am supremely impressed with their service AND their product. I just received my BD book in the mail today (after just ordering it last Wednesday night after 5 p.m. and it was supposed to arrive yesterday but I was a dork and put in the wrong address).

    Now, there is usually a 1-4 day processing time for orders as well as a 3-5 day shipping time (for Canada), but because I'm Ms. Last Minute I wrote to their customer service and played the bride card, and they totally sped up the process and made sure it shipped ASAP.

    And the product didn't suffer! I love the quality of the book jacket and the print quality of the pages ... they're not overly glossy and I think they look great! Plus, there's a great little overlay on the first page where the text is ... I'll try and post some pics in my planning thread. :)

    Anyways ... had to share!

      Yeah, they are who I used for my BD book as well and I was quite happy with it! Glad you liked yours so much too!

      I used My Publisher for our guestbook. They estimated the turn around time on their website (you can check before ordering) as 3 days out. Luckily they started on it the next day so I had it within a few days. I think it turned out pretty well, although I tend to like the process of putting the together better with Mpix. I did have problems twice while making my book with My Publisher. I called their hotline and both times I got through within minutes. They were able to help me solve my problems immediately. The second customer service rep that I spoke with even gave me his name and told me to call him if I had any further problems. I love their customer service!

      Here are some pics of how my guestbook turned out:
      here is the dust jacket cover (it turned out better than I hoped it would!)

      inside page...i used a horizontal layout for this picture. I had problems because they don't do a full bleed. I had problems too because I made all of these pictures faded in Photoshop and put the text on in Photoshop as well. I don't have Photoshop so when I had problems with the entire picture and text fitting on a page I had to move the photo around, thus cutting off certain parts. I don't recommend doing everything in Photoshop first unless you have quick access to it and plenty of time to create your book. I'm obviously not a good photographer as seen by the following pictures :)

      Here's how the vertical pictures turn out. I wanted pages with no white but since vertical ones obviously don't fill up the page I have some of each in my book. In person the pages are the perfect amount of glossy for me.

          I was thinking of using Shutterfly to make an album; but perhaps I will utilize this instead. Hmmmm.... Thanks for the tip!

                Glad that you liked them! I love them too. I used them to make several copies of our wedding album & gave them to our parents as gifts. I've gotten the classic hardcover & the leather album. The leather album I didn't quite like but the hardcover is excellent quality!

                I'll definitely be using them for my BD album.

                Thank you...I combined a couple of different ideas from BDW for the inspiration.

                Thanks for the review of the leather album; I was thinking of possibly going that route for my parent's album. I really love the hardcover book too!

                  No problem. I thought that the leather album was going to be the best but the binding was TOO TIGHT! We couldn't even open the album because the binding was so tight that the inside of the front cover was going to rip. Obviously we had to open it & as we did, it started to rip right down the middle.
                  The one thing that I can say is that their customer service is excellent! I sent them an email explaining what happened with the leather album & they quickly sent me a new coupon code for a new album of my choice, which covered all of my costs.
                  So even if you think you want to take a chance & order the leather album, if you're not happy with the outcome, definitely contact them & let them know.
