Marrieds - Have you done a Photobook?

We FINALLY received our discs of pro pics, and now I want to make some parent albums for Christmas gifts.

Has anyone else done this? What online vendor do you recommend? I'd love to see someone else's for inspiration as well :)

TIA!

    Stinkerbell - I loove yours! What style of book did you choose? Were you happy with the print quality? Do you have any hints/suggestions for using Picaboo?

    I've also done a few through Picaboo.  If you become a fan of theirs on facebook you hear about sales and deals.  I used a buy one get one sale to get 2 books for the parents for christmas and I just took advantage of a 40% off sale to order a book for ourselves.  I can post a link to mine this evening when I can get to my computer. 

    I've also done shutterfly books.  I think the quality between the two is comparable.

    I used the "Classic Custom". It's pretty easy and strait fwd. to use. I did our guestbook and one album before this (the one my mom has) and was happy with the quality.

    Hummm.....I would play around with looking for other backgrounds and such...I am still not 100% on this one cause I want to lean some of the new features that Picaboo has added. I don't want to find something later that I should have done! LOL.

    I used blurb.com

    Seriously LOVED IT! I've used shutterfly & snapfish before, and I loved blurb!

    I used Kodakgallery.ca and was very pleased.  It is shipped from within Canada so no customs fees, etc.

    I'm too lazy, and haven't gotten around to it yet.

    Anyone want to do one for me?!

    Thanks Ebony!  It's one of my favorite pics.  Although it's hard not to have a lot of favorites.

    We're using PIcaboo - used them for a couple of other books & really like them.
