Photobook Your Memories

Last Sunday as I was updating my family journal, I told my daughter that I should get it bound into a book, especially the photos and scrapbooks. Rather than keep everything on my harddisk, I was thinking a Photobook would be appropriate. I'd have to save money and target to do that at the end of the year.

Photobooks seem to be the trend these days. Some people create Photobooks as their wedding album . Definitely more appealing than those bulky and heavy traditional wedding albums. They are also great for other special occasions such as anniversaries, barmitzvah, christening, holidays etc....

There are many photobook services online. For example, if you are in UK, Photo Productions designs and prints Premium Photobooks. They are not like the many design-it-yourself photobooks services that give you cheap prints. They have a team that will professionally design your book using your uploaded photos. Their quality is also exceptional. After you approve of the design, the book goes through a 23 stage digital printing and hand-binding process. In other words, not only are the images vibrant but the book is durable as well.

The service they provide is usually available through a photographer. However, that makes it more expensive. They are the first UK based company to offer such services to the general public. Their website is user friendly. You'll find it no hassle at all. You also get full online proofing of the Photobook designs when they are done. They will ship to anywhere but if you are in UK, shipping is free.

If you are a professional photographer, you can apply for a trade discount. This means more savings for you. Their tagline is 'Premium Photobooks, Not Premium Prices'.

*Disclaimer: I'm getting some pocket-money from this post.

  1. For any of you interested, there's a creative and practical take on
    Orchid Children and Dandelion Children on the
    Committed Parent blog (http://committedparent.wordpress.com)
    this week. This somewhat revolutionary way of identifying children and their needs, and what we as parents can actually DO, is clearly and simply addressed on Dr. Brady’s compelling blog. Although nothing is ever black and white in the world of child development, it does seem that depending upon the environment they're raised in, our kids can turn out as superstars or psychopaths. As the mother of two “adult” boys still struggling to come into bloom as they approach 40, I can attest to the importance of being able to make the Orchid/Dandelion distinction early. I would urge anyone who is interested in the latest information on early childhood (emotional and brain) development to read and bookmark the Committed Parent blog.


Don't go without saying something. I would love to read your comments. BUT no junk comments please.
