well girls, i ended up ordering 2 diff bpic books. after reading several posts about blurb.com i decided to order one from them. and i've gotta be honest, I was really disappointed with it! It was TINY and some of my images were cropped strangely, even cutting out my head in some of the photos!
well, i knew I could get a better book, so thanks to laurasweets post about her guest book from mixbook, I decided to give them a go, and I LOVE IT! the book is HUGE, cost only about $36 with a coupon, and the quality is out of this world. Here are some photos:
blurb on left, mixbook on right, front cover:
blurb had some photo editing options, but mixbook had a ton more. i only got about 16-18 photos from my photog to use, so this was important. inside cover or blurb book: eh, its ok...
and of the mixbook:
omg love it
mixbook, the photos came out SO clear!!
examples of the cropping issues I had with blurb:
<---cut off entire upper left photo! even some of my face!
<-- my face is lost in the binding..not good
here's the mixbook photo, which not only cropped it exactly how I wanted, but also has an AWESOME "extend the picture across 2 pages" option. i think its sooo much cooler:
mixbook also has awesome reflection effects, which I made my fave page of the whole book out of:
<-- it says "You've gotta breathe her, really taste her, til you can feel her in your blood..and when you can see your unborn children in her eyes, you know you really love a woman" and I never woulda come up with it if it wasn't for the reflection function!! LOL
SO, for about the same money, I got a FLIPPING AWESOME book frommixbook.com, and would not rec blurb. Hope this helps you out ladies!! <3
