I received my first photo book from Mixbook.com this week and love it. It's a gift for my parent's Mother's Day & Father's Day gifts and I can't wait to give it to them. They are opening a bed & breakfast in Cherokee, Iowa hopefully by the end of the year and I thought they need a guest book for all of their guests to fill out when they visit.
Mixbook actually has several different kinds of photo albums that you can make up. Their prices are very reasonable and even though they said that it would be shipped for arrival the week of July 13th I received mine within a week I think.
When I decided to make up a guest book for Mom and Dad I had to send out an email to friends and family that I thought might have digital photos of Mom and Dad with their friends and thanks to our friend Kay Jipp (who sent me like 8 emails FULL of pictures) and my sister and brother in law (who have SCADS of pictures of their family of Facebook) I was able to fill up a Guest Book with lots of pictures.
When you make up your photobooks you have the option of several layouts (weddings, parties, school, kids, romance, recipes, etc), you can add stickers, backgrounds, text boxes to add quotes, and more. You start out by "naming" your book, add photos, customize it and that's it. It's very easy to use. (sorry, I used my camera phone & they came out a little grainy)
You can make up your own album by clicking here and setting up an account. It's fun to make up an album and dream a little about being an author and writing up your own book. You can also have friends and family join you in designing your book which makes it great to give as a gift. My sister looked over the book and added suggestions on the final design which helped me out a lot.
