Can say better than that. My favourite is myphotobook and worth putting on your list of possibilities.

I've just done a wedding album for a friend, using Blurb. The process was easy, price very good (85 for 126 pages on upgraded paper and with image wrap) and the quality is excellent. We even managed to get rid of the little Blurb logo on the back.

I will certainly use them in future.

I have used Blurb for a number of personal books and I am completely satisfied. Their BookSmart software is easy to use.

Like Digiammad, I recommend the the better quality paper. It is a sort of satin finish which suits images perfectly.

I won an Albelli photobook in the Christmas draw and it should arrive any day now. Will report back on quality later. Smile

I have used Lulu.com and Blurb.com and have been happy with both.

Although they are both in America, the books are printed and despatched from the sub-contracted printer nearest to the buyer.

Thanks very much for all your answers - it sounds like Blurb is the one to try.

Albelli are excellent. I have used them a number of times and had our wedding albums for family, best man and bridesmaids printed up by them. They have never disappointed either on service or quality...and they often have great offers e.g. 2 for 1 when I was buying the wedding books. Last week they had a Groupon offer where you could buy a 25 voucher for 9. Try them..you will not be disappointed. The layout software is very good and you can change product size and resave the design.

Just received my Albelli books. I'm thrilled. They're much better than I thought they would be. You might need to lighten your images slightly to compensate for the printing, but choose glossy paper and you won't be disappointed.
