Have you heard of Blurb yet?
If not, check it out. You will love it. I'm pretty sure I heard about it first from Design Mom (where else?) a few months back. I think this is pretty much the coolest idea ever. You design a book online with your own photos and text and layout and everything, then the good people at Blurb make it into a real book. A real book with glossy pages and full-bleed images, and it can be soft or hard cover, and different sizes and you can order just one or many. The prices are extremely reasonable for a single printing. You can make one for your wedding, your blog, your family recipes, your collection of sunset photos, your vacation, whatever. I'm trying to think of clever gift-books I could make. I've decided that once I catch up in my scrapbooking to the point in life when I got a digital camera (that is to say once I've run out of actual photos in a box and I'm left with images on my hard drive) I'm switching over to this system. I think it will be easier and much cheaper than getting all those photos printed and buying all the little papers and such and an album. I'm excited. I don't know if I can wait until I actually catch up, I still have a year or two left of photos in a box. And I just think this is so cool. Am I right, folks?
