I just did my first Boudoir photo shoot and am now looking for printing options.

I would like to get both a photo book and prints for framing . We want to find a secure & discreet printing company.

Is it better to look for a local or a web based printer?

Who do you use and how is their quality?

I've done two books with Blurb & one with Shutterfly. Both are good quality at a reasonable price. Is that what you're looking for, or do you have the budget for the really high-end ones?

I've noticed that Costco & Meijers offer books, & you can see examples in the stores. See what's available in your area.

Best compromise of quality, price and ease for photobooks for a vacation
POTN tested several book publishers before we made our yearly "Best of" books, & Blurb won for overall price vs.quality. OTOH, we did not test them against the high end wedding albums which were much more expensive. Be aware that they've upgraded their software, paper, & cover options several times since this 2007 thread:

I've used Shutterfly before and was quite happy with the result: http://www.ethereality​.info …bout_me/wordpre​ss/?p=2605 (external link)
