    I don't mind at all!
    It's just that the price changes based on certain factors... i.e. if you want a cameo window, or a funkier cover like alligator etc, how many pages you want, the size of the album etc...

    So, I ordered a 12X12 black leather with 30 double-page spreads or 60 pages (or "sides" as they're sometimes called...)

    So my total order, with taxes and shipping was $560 USD.
    So, definitely not cheap, lol, BUT cheap-ER than ordering the same through a photographer... at least most photographers I checked with charged a design fee (which I think has a huge range, from $200 - $1000 ?) and then they charge for the actual book anywhere from $500 to a couple thousand...

    Though if you don't want to go through your photographer or design it yourself, there are some companies that do that, including Sarah Sproullie, who's a vendor on this site:-)

        Whoops -- sorry, forgot to mention the kind of album I ordered is called "Tuscany"..
        And the base price for the leather covers, including 20 pages, is $249 USD.
        Every page after that is an additional $7.50 USD.

                    Thank you for sharing and I'm thinking about doing the same thing. Also thinking about making photo books for my guests but on a lower scale (like a mini photo book).
