I recently started doing some sports action photography and put together all the shots of one team in a hardback photobook. The parents love it and want more. The one I did I did using Shutterfly.com. The only problem is there is no way for my customers to view it and add captions if they want. Also, if I mass produced it gets a bit expensive as those are at retail prices.

Does anyone know of a vendor that I can use? Shutterfly's was great quality and I don't want to compromise that.

Look forward to hearing back from any of you. Thanks

What kind of quantity are you looking for, for a single printing?

iPhoto/Mac can do it... and you can also make a PDF of the book for others to pre-view.

I don't know where you're located, but I ran across this the other day. 20% off mypublisher.com from Costco. I've never used them, so I can't speak to the quality.

Bob, Probably no more than 20 or 30 of each team. Many will want there own child in the window on the front so those will be one at a time. Thanks

What kind of paper do they use to print them? Prices seem a little low for it to be high quality. Would you say they are like the big photobooks you can get in a bookstore? Slick pages with crisp/clear photos?

Thanks
