I know photobooks have been asked quite a few times in EPZ, with the highly recommended are Loxley, Blurb, Lulu etc.
One thing I don't know is if those photobooks are with thick pages or thin as a 'normal' book.
And I am after photobook with thick pages., that doesn't cost an arm and a leg...Smile
Any suggestions?

lol - they're the pricy ones Cole, Grafistudio and Loxley and Jourgensen spring to mind, good few hundred quid a pop - one you add your margins, you're looking at a fair old price tag.... Wink

Blurb have options for different paper grades and weights, but I don't think any are actually rigid.

You are such a disappointment Cole. I open every 'wedding' thread with the anticipation that it will be a lively and entertaining "Lucian" thread, this I fear will be dull and mundane......

OK, let's make it this way:
I want to produce cheapest photobooks with crap photos, and add 500% margin on top. Any suggestion?

Now we are cooking !

Try producing a normal photobook with photobox , leave2 double sides blank and then use two double sides - continue this throughout the book. When your book is delivered glue them together to create thick pages. Put them in a flashy briefcase ( available from any bargain goods outlet ) and add 300 pounds to the price.

Get a cheap faux leather jacket from a charity shop and cut out a cover for the book wrap it around and glue down the edges.

Oh, and then ring photobox and tell them there is a fault , send them a doctored photo, and demand a replacement , this can act as a parent book ( you will need to do this twice for two sets of parents ) , dont forget to add another charge for the free books.

Last but not least , label them as Murano Book , hand made in Italy Wink

- on a slightly more serious note GraphiStudio do offer some good prices if you are with them for their rigid card books , and most of the photobook manaufacturers now offer heavier paper , ( 150-200 g is quite light 200+ is better )
