I've used numerous photo services to have photo books printed, in fact I was pretty loyal to a different brand until the Summer of 2007 when I got a code for a free book from shutterfly.com. So, I created the book online and then waited a few days to receive my book. I was very impressed when I opened the box.
Here are some of the things I like about the shutterfly.com 8 x 8 photo books: they are sleek (it looks like a professionally published book), nice hard cover, thick photo paper, brightly colored printed photos, attractive scrapbook style layouts/backgrounds, and overall impressive styling.
I really enjoy the scrapbook look of these books without actually having to scrapbook. I used to enjoy scrapbooking, but this is so much easier!
