My very first Shutterfly order!
I've been wanting to create a photobook for my parents (and secretly for myself) :)
I remember hearing about Shutterfly and it seemed like they had the 'best quality'
in terms of searching around, website appeal, etc. I know there's a very inexpensive
website called ArtsCow, but it does lack in quality... just a bit... but if you just want
photos placed inside a book, then they will do the job :)
The photobook is comprised of our trip to Europe... back in the summer of 2010! XD
My order came in a pizza-like shaped box! and I love the orange!
This is what you will see when you first open the box, how cute :)
and your book is safely placed inside (it had a plastic cover, but I took it off)
It took forever to arrive though... considering it's from the States and I live in Canada ><
There were supposed to be delays from Canada Post, but I received my other mails.
I even received a pen I ordered from Korea within' 5-7 days.
The photobook took about 3 weeks to arrive ._.
Let's just say... that I was getting very impatient ><
but I am happy with my order... the photos turned out nicely
As for the pricing, I think it is very reasonable.
If you were to print this yourself and bind it... I would say that
it would cost you well over $50-100. I like how Shutterfly offers
a variety of template designs as well. My book came out to around
$43 (I added additional pages). Shipping was around $10 ><but
this book will be with me for a very long time and my parents were
never able to properly see the vacation photos, since they were always
on my laptop... I decided to just print them out, and let them keep it :)
and my nails for the past week :)
Just something simple :) I'm planning on doing a darker look this weekend :)
Base: Sally Hansen Green Tea & Olive base coat
