Hi All,

blurb.com!  If you don't mind being small, you can fit nine pictures on each page!

Look for groupons and special deals for Shutterfly and Snapfish.

Also, if you're a Costco member, someone was literally just like half an hour ago telling me that they do cheap photo books.

Blurb looks OK, although interface sucks. Mixbook is a lot more user-friendly, similar priced (got 50% immediately as first time customer). Number of photos is limited, but it's going to be a thoughtful gift and not literally a stack of photos in one page

I personally love Mixbook! I think their layouts are nice and the interface is easy to use. And they almost ALWAYS have some kind of sale. What I do is put my book together so it's ready to go and then wait for a 50% off sale.  They almost always have good sales around every holiday and lots of random sales in between.

Read Photo Book Girl's blog. She always has a "coupons" section as well as reviews. Never, never pay full price for a photo book.

That said, I got a photobook from Shutterfly recently and I'm really happy with it. As we speak, my Blurb book is in the mail so I'll have to check in later and let you know how I like it.

We used Costco for our wedding album and it looks fantastic! They also do canvas prints (and other poster/aluminum prints we haven't tried) and we've been happy with everything.
