The first photo books I did, I created when Sam's Club had an actual machine that you used in the store. Now, you just download the photos and make the book at home. It does take a couple of weeks to get the book. I recently did one for a lady at church who had a party for her 80th birthday. The book seemed a little too plain (this lady likes a lot of bling!), so I spiced it up a little by adding diecuts throughout the book and rhinestones on the cover. I think if I saw this book lying on a coffee table, I would be more apt to pick it up and look at it over the boring original book. What do you think?
I have done books on Snapfish and Shutterfly and I have seen books done on Blurb and Apple. I recently tried out a new photo book where you choose scrapbook paper and embellishments that are available for actual papercrafting.
Since I do like to travel and to shoot weddings, I would like to hear what your experiences have been with photo books...which ones do you love and which ones would you not use again. I guess this book would be considered "hybrid" as I did the book digitally but then added physical elements.
We will get back to the Outer Banks now...they have found the anchor from Anne's Revenge so I might need to go see that at the museum when I go to Cape Lookout! Also I noticed that St. George Island also made the Dr. Beach top ten beaches. It always amazes me how much I notice things mentioned about places I have visited (or will visit soon) after I am made aware of them. I am sure I will see references to the Outer Banks that I would never have noticed before.
Have a great and safe holiday weekend!
