I wanted an original guestbook for our wedding so I decided to make a photobook of pictures of my husband and I through the years as well as ones of us together now and leave room for our guests to sign around each photo. Picaboo had some great online coupon codes, and when I was making my book I found one for a free book (to the value of 29$ I think). I was able to save a ton of money using this code as I made a 40 pages book.
Some of the great things about Picaboo include their backgrounds. They have a HUGE selection of backgrounds that you can choose from. If you don't find one on the downloadable software then you can go on their website and look for backgrounds on there as well. Theres no shortage of backgrounds. They also have more layouts then some of the other books out there. You can also add borders around your pictures which is a nice touch. The paper/print quality was great, the paper was thick enough that my guests were able to sign the book with sharpie markers and it didnt bleed through to the other side. The quality of the photos was excellent and the full bleed photos came out amazing, I loved them!
Another bonus that I loved was the fact that you could upload the book, and then share it with friends. I found this incredibly helpful when I wanted to have someone other then myself proof my book and make sure it looked ok, they didn't have to be at my house because the book was online.
One downside of the book however is the fact that you need to download the software to your computer. If you have a slower computer this can be a bit of a pain since it will really slow it down. What I do is download it, create my book, upload it and then delete the software until the next time I need to make a book.
If you are interested in making a photobook definately do a search and see if there are any good coupon codes out there and give Picaboo a try. The final result will impress you.
