After our wedding my husband and I wanted to create photobooks for our parents with photos of our special day however we were having a difficult time picking a company that was affordable and easy to use yet still had good quality. During my search I discovered that Future Shop was having a 60% off sale on their photobooks! Excellent! I decided to make the books from them.
They have a lot of great things going for them. First off, their software is online, all you have to do is upload your photos to their site and you can complete the books online. This is great if you have a slower computer that can't take having a program installed onto it. It is also very easy to use. I found it to be self explainatory unlike other programs I had used (or tried to use) in the past. They are also fast at printing the books and shipping them. Another bonus is the free shipping!! If you have a Future Shop store near you, you can create the book and ship it to the store and then just pick it up. Shipping prices for these types of books can get pricey since most companies are located in the United States.
There are some downfalls to the books too. I wasn't overly impressed with the backgrounds that were provided, there wasn't too many to choose from and ultimately I ended up going with white. Because the program to create the books is webbased, you wern't able to use your own fonts, and their selection is once again limited. I didn't care for their layouts too much either. There wasn't a large selection, which made things difficult when trying to decide where what pictures should go.
Overall, I would definately suggest using Futurephoto to create a photobook. The quality of the pictures(and pages for that matter) is wonderful, the pages are a decent thickness and all of our photos are crystal clear. If you are looking for something simple and can get past the the small selection of layouts and backgrounds go for it!
