I used PhotobooksRus for my printing in the past, and I can't sing their praises highly enough. The quality of the binding, paper and colour of the printing are all so beautiful. I have spent many a happy moment sitting and pouring over my beautiful albums. My favourite part is that the lovely, slimline A4 books sit neatly on the shelf; it's not a cumbersome task to take them down to look at.
The software provided by PhotobooksRUs is simple to use, but still feature-packed. I'm pretty savvy with Adobe Photoshop, so I was relieved to find lots of the editing features are quite similar, but in a more user-friendly way. I love the range of page formats to choose from, and the flexibility to add your own backgrounds to your book. Basically it's just a matter of downloading the software to your computer and loading your photos into it. From there, you can choose to have as much or as little control over how you photo book comes together. You can choose the fully automated option, or design each page layout yourself.
A 20-page, A4 photo book costs $59.50, with additional pages at 99cents each. Beautiful followers of happiness.stuff and nonsense (within Australia) can take advantage of a lovely deal.
A 70 page A4 photo book for just $45!
Leave a comment here, and I will email you the purchase details (make sure I can reach you!). I can't tell you how rewarding it is to get that album in the mail. Even if you aren't ready to print your 52/Portrait Project, this might be a great opportunity to give photo book printing a go.
Disclaimer: PhotobooksRUs are a company I have used in the past and have been very happy with the product and customer service. I received no money or products for this post, just the great discount for our 52/ Portrait Project community.
