I shot my friend's graduation yesterday and want to give her and her family a photobook of all the photos I took of her.

What company would you all recommend? Shutterfly is the only one I know of and I'm looking to see if anyone knows anything better.

Blurb does one too, but I haven't ever seen one in person. I have downloaded their software and played around with it though. Thought it was kinda cool.

blurb books are beautiful, and reasonably priced. Im not in love with their software, but its decent.

MyPublisher.com has photobooks you can order through Costco's website, and if you sign up for email updates, they send coupons.
I've been using them for years and never disappointed.

I used Blurb last summer to make a book for my wife - to celebrate our 20 years together. While the Blurb software was pretty frustrating to use at times - I was very happy with the end result. I printed one of their larger books, a 13x11 hardcover imagewrap with premium paper 100#. Here are a couple photos of it..

Thanks for your help!

glad to hear this! Blurb is also partnered with smugmug, which is who my site is through. I'll be doing some blurb books here pretty soon!

+1 blurb.

I looked around and saw Blurb online. Used it for one book of my travels. i dont mind the software tbh, worked fine for me. Also you can edit your own page layouts if not happy with the predefined ones.

The print quality is pretty good.

I think the price is reasonable considering the quality of the product.

Just made a book from my honeymoon, 126 pages, £70 total including premium papers etc and trackable priority postage.
