    Hi Ladies!

    I am wanting to make a photo book of pictures from our wedding.  I was hoping to get the kind with leather binding and hard pages.  Any ideas or recommendations on how to do this.  I just cant seem to find any good websites. Thanks SO much for your help!

      Hey there girl!

      I found that there are often groupons, teambuy and other group buying sites that often have specials on digital photobooks. I bought one from Picaboo not to long ago and was able to produce 2 photobooks with my $100 credit, that I bought for only $39!!  I chose the ones with a photowrap cover so not sure how much more leather would be.  I used these to make a photo guestbook for my sister in laws shower gift and I am going to make the other one for my fiance for xmas (with pictures of his son through the last few years, awww)


      I also just got a $115 groupon for $29 from photobook Canada!! this one doesnt expire until next year so I am going to use it to make books with our wedding photos, and maybe one for BD photos if I get up the guts to actually do it!


      Good luck!  p.s the process of personalizing and doing the layout of the photobook is super user friendly on Picaboo, it took me a LONG time though, I would say almost 8 hours over several nights to get it just the way I wanted it.

        I agree with signing up for Groupon; they have specials all the time for Mixbook as well as Photobook. (also be on the lookout for a great deal on their canvas wrapped pictures!) In the past I have purchased a photo book for my sisters bridal shower that had pics of her from birth to her adult years, pics of her then fiancĀ© from birth to adult years and then the last section had pics of them together as a couple. It was really easy to do and they have so many layouts. Oh I forgot to mention that Living Social also sends out really good coupons too so be sure to sign up for them as well.

          My best friend recently got married and used Mixbook to share all the pictures with us. She made an online photo book and it looks pretty cool! It was very customizable and easy to use.
