Engagement photo book.

I have seen some of you talking about how you did your guestbooks online and they send you the book. Whats the best site that you have used. which do you recommend? I'm going to be doing my engagement book soon for my parents, his parents and one for us. My photographer was someone I knew so I didnt get a book with them I just got free range with all the pictures for cheaper which I like alot better. Thanks for reading and the help :)

Hey FC,


My fiance and I made our guest sign-in book using My Publisher. It was the first time I used it so I was of course skeptical. But it actually turned out really nicely. The program is user-friendly (which is great for me) and it didn't take me very long at all. Also, the quality of the pictures was really good too. I know others on here have used Blurb and have said some good things about them too. I guess its just figuring out which program you like better. Hope this helps!

I just got my MP guestbook in the mail yesterday, it turned out wonderfully. The pictures didn't print as sharply as I would have liked but for $30 I was being too picky, its only pixellated if you stick the book two inches from your face... Make sure you don't enlarge the photos too much within the album because that can blur them too. I liked the thickness of the pages from mypublisher, they're a very good weight.

futurechase, i believe iphoto is for Macs.  if you have one, you should be able to use it, FI did that for a photo album he gave me after he proposed.  if you don't have a mac, i don't think you can access it...

it was nice...similar to shutterfly's.  but you can't do leather covers.  i think you can only do the dust jacket style

Maybe I will just order one from all 3 since its just a Engagement book and I need 3 anyways. Then to make my guest book I will pick the one that looked the best :)

Another option would be Picaboo. There are alot of different formats for pages and the pictures turn out great. Also, the cover can have a picture on it which I know is not the case with some other programs. I just got mine last week from Picaboo and it turned out really good.

I think I'm gonna go with mypublisher and picaboo. Maybe shutterfly but its almost double the price of the other ones. I will post about them when I get them an tell you ladies how I liked the, both. But that wont be till Chirstmas time. They are going to be gifts.
