Last week, I got my first photo book from Blurb. After our wedding, I intended on making a photo book to showcase all of our beautiful photos. We had so many photos that I couldn’t possibily hang them all on our wall and I wanted a place where we could see all of our pictures from the ceremony to the reception. Well..we got married 2 years ago this October and I had yet to do anything with the photos aside from a few photos on our wall and my coveted facebook album :). When Blurb offered me a photo book, I was so excited! I decided to do a hard cover 8 x 10 book with a dust jacket. I decided to use their online book maker – Bookify. You also have the option to design your book by downloading a program onto your computer.
To be honest, it took a bit to understand the program but once I got the hang of it, it wasn’t hard! My only con was that it wasn’t as customizable as photo books I have made in the past. I wasn’t able to place texts where I wanted – only where the layout provided. The same went for pictures but I was super pleased with what was available. I uploaded the photo files from my computer and just plugged them in.
I was able to share the photos from before the wedding – like our “first look”.
I loved that I could choose a layout with several photos on each page.. I made sure to do a few like this with details from the wedding like decor and even snapshots from the dance floor!
My book arrived in just a few weeks. It is beautiful! Blurb always has awesome sales on their products. Right now they have 40% off if you use the code ROADTRIP40!
