    Hmm...maybe I should come up with some tutorials for you girls.

    Have you looked at their tutorial? it's pretty helpful...that and just plain old trial & error!

      I just keep playing with different things on each page I do, I just showed some of the ones I have been working on with Will and he being mr graphics man says he doesn't really like them, so I think I will need to keep working on making them cooler like Sarah does with her siggy's. He did like my siggy and printed it for his frame on his desk though.
      Christine + Will (married 7/20/07) + Ainsleigh (born 6/25/08) + Nolan (born 11/9/10) + Delaney (born 12/31/13) = One Very Happy Family!

        I ordered my bd book from Shared Ink and I do not have the photographer account. I can tell you that the CEO was very helpful in accomodating my requests. I ordered the normal size linen book, but I wanted full bleeds (where the ink goes to the edge of the paper) and Chris (the CEO) totally worked with me to make sure that the book came out just as I wanted it to. It might be worth it to send an inquiry through their website to see if they can accomodate your requests....leather bound, bigger book, etc.

        I also used a photo editing software program (photoshop) to create my pages and then uploaded my page directly into shared ink.

        How long do the books take to arrive once you order them?

          The one I just made for a coworker arrived less than two weeks after we ordered it. I think my other two books have taken about 3 weeks.

              I just ordered two shutterfly.com books. I don't know how the quality compares to mypublisher but I'm pretty sure it's not as nice as shared ink. So far, I have just ordered them for cute gifts & wasn't too concerned with them being really fancy. I ordered an 8x11 for my grandma of all of our engagement pictures & best pictures from vacations. I had the choice of a satin, suede, or leather cover. I chose blue satin. It looks really nice. It was hard for me to ship it off today, because I've been having so much fun looking at it. This is just something for her to take to the bingo hall & show her friends. I took pictures if anyone wants to see it.

              The other book I ordered was our guest sign in book. It has 1-2 small pictures on each page & a lot of blank space for people to sign. I hope it turns out nice. I was in a rush to finish it last night, because my free shipping code was going to expire.

              So far I've just used shutterfly, because I keep getting offers for free books & free shipping. I also made a cute colorful book of our little kid pictures for mother's day. My mom loved it.

              They also put a blank page at the end, but suggest you pay an extra $1 to add a picture to that page. I did that for all books but the guest book. I figure for the guest book it will just be an extra autograph page.

              They have 12x12 books, but I'll have to check if it's available with a leather cover.

              I'm intersted to know if there are better websites for making our wedding album. I'd like to make a really nice book with a book cover. For just playing around and making cute gifts, I've been really happy with shutterfly. Especially since I haven't had to pay more than $1 per book.

                Only the 8.5x11 & 5x7s have an option for a leather cover.
