Made My Book by Shutterfly - Review
Every Christmas I make a book of photos for my family and my in-laws (and I keep it to myself because I'm greedy). Unfortunately, it is one of the most amazing parts of my vacation time when I sit down to make it. When the Shutterfly people asked me if I was interested in a free book in return for checking their new Make My Book services, I sucked!
With Make My Book, you can enter a stack of photographs, choose a book type and have it adopted by a shutterfly-artist. You' ll set up and plan your best shoots to make a book of photographs tailored to your event. Launch on the Shutterfly homepage. You can find the Build My Book item under the Books page.
Franny and Simeon' s birthdays, our excursions to the beaches, etc. You will need about 3 working day to get the definitive evidence of your book back. You will get an e-mail confirming when your Make My Book is completed. It is now the right moment to make changes! As with creating your own photobook, you can modify it by creating and deleting photographs or using decorations and layout.
There were some designs I liked when I was looking at my last book. Some of the layout didn't need flowing and editing (how seriously, why did they put a footprint and a ladybug in the baptism?). Lastly, use the Order page to modify the page order to your liking or (as in my case) to remove a few pages because the book was very long.
The things I used to love about Make My Book: I only took about 15 mins. to submit my book enquiry. There is a $9.99 commission (it's a good idea!) AND you only need to buy your book to use it. Valued the e-mails that informed me about the book's completion time.
So I asked for a christening and a few other details. I' ve also asked to organize the book according to season (and it was). Although there were fewer possibilities than designing your own book, the styling possibilities would cover every opportunity you might have. This is great for special events like a birthdays memorial book or a christening.
So it' s great to be able to optimize the end result. The thing I didn't really like about" Make My Book": I' m a little perfectionistic when it comes to designing photobooks, so there were a few things I didn't like.
The book was too long and the function "Curate my photos" was just like this. And a 75-page book is crazy, so I had to cut a great deal to get it brief enough to make sence. There' s a maximum of 800 pictures (I submited 400), but I think this will work best if you keep the number of pictures low (100 or less) and do your own work.
This way your book won't be enormous and ridiculously pricey. We had some pics from our January Christmas photoshoot and pics from our Nashville journey blended with our Cleveland-journey. This is the best way to celebrate a special occasion (birthday celebrations, wedding, beach excursions ) instead of waiting for a foreigner to organise your whole year.
I had more love than not all love and I am looking forward to my last book in the post. I ordered shutterfly photobooks for many years (see the book I made to speak to Simeon about Spina Bifida HERE), so I rely on the software and I know that their support is fantastic (tangential: a few years ago my photobooks never came in the post - although the follow-up information said they had been there.
I got a whole new range of textbooks from Shutterfly, no question asked and they came right on schedule for Christmas! In my opinion, I will use Make My Book in the near distant past for certain events (although I will probably still make my own Christmas book, as I am obviously a pitch controller). Franny's first anniversary is just around the corner and Make My Book could really make my creative photographic memory section really easy.
