Gift Idea: Custom Photo Book

5 December 2011 | 0 Comments

A custom photo book makes a great Christmas present, personalized for the recipient.  Did you take a vacation together?  Make a book from the pictures, so you can relive the memories.  Or maybe a year’s worth of photos of your family (or of the kids – great idea for grandparents).

I’ve made a lot of photo books with many different online printing companies (My Publisher, Picaboo, Apple) but without a doubt, my favourite is Blurb.  The printing quality is great, and so is their pricing.  I suggest spending a few extra bucks and get the premium paper – it’s a lot thicker than the basic paper and makes a difference.

You don’t have to be a designer to do this – just download the free software from Blurb’s website, and drag and drop your photos into place.  You can even import your pics from Facebook or Instagram.  It’s super easy.

Order by December 14 for guaranteed Christmas delivery.
