I've used Blurb for my last 9 wedding albums, and both myself and my clients have been really pleased.
I know several of you think companies like Blurb are for amateurs, and pros should be using something more like Asuka or Queensbury. I get that, but Blurb is pretty nice for the price, it keeps my costs where I need them and I like the design software.
So I have two current clients that want, and are willing to pay extra for flush mount 'hard paged' albums. I've read through some threads and done some googleing and I'm still a little lost.
I understand why premium companies work the way they do - going out of their way to keep pricing private and deal only with pros. But it's such a to do to submit my info and get to a point where I can see samples and find out pricing. I'd just like some basic info so I know who to go through all that with.
I'd really just like a ballpark figure. Is my cost a few hundred or closer to 1k? Also, I really prefer large, landscape oriented books, which is what I do with Blurb, but most of the flush mount books I see are either square or portrait.
I really wish there was a slightly higher end version of Blurb out there, or that Blurb would offer a flush mount version. My client base isn't willing to pay 1k or more for their album, but I would like to meet these two clients half way. Any ideas?
