Photobook recommendation

Hi,

Which lab would you recommend for good quality photo book? I have only used Apple through iPhoto many years ago and recently Shutterfly to make photo books. Apple was good but I do not use iPhoto anymore. Shutterfly quality is mediocre because the paper feels cheap and the prints on the photobook was much grainer than prints.

Anyone has used MPIX, Adoramapix or has some other recommendations? Thanks.

Sorry Joe but am not replying in detail as this has been extensively covered regularly and even recently too, so not about to repeat everything again.

Just do a Search - as actually advised by the DPR rules.

I have tried a few and find that Adormapix does a great job at a cheap cost.  They usually have specials to make an 8 x 8 with leather cover for $10 to see the quality.

If you are a Pro you can get very good quality books from Zookbinders.

Blurb does a decent job, and they now have a "pro" option for higher quality.  In my experience though, if you are willing to pay more, Asukabook does a fantastic job.

Only my opinion. It's worth what you paid for it. Your mileage may vary! ;-}
