    Thanks ... that looks very interesting! I wonder what the quality of the product is like? If anyone makes a book, let us know!

    Cheers, PeterB.

    I have used Snapfish previously as they had a special offer where you could print a book for free. The quality is very high and professional looking.

    I've heard good things about blurb.

    Another one is lulu.com

    Cheers,

    A couple of months ago I found an Aussie site that was offering photo books, and they offered to send out a couple of sample pages to judge the print quality. When the samples arrived in the mail, I wasn't very impressed. No doubt good enough for a snapshot album but they weren't my idea of "coffee-table book" quality. I can't remember the name of the site now, unfortunately.

    Anyway, I'm just waiting until I have enough good images to put a book together (which may be a *long* time at the rate I'm going) ...

    Cheers, PeterB.

    I got one made through Snapfish. It's really nice, great keepsake.. but not sure if it's worth the $$ they charge. I guess to really make it worth while you need a nice thick book full of photos.. mine is quite thin.

    I've used Pixart (http://www.pixart.com.my/index.htm) for printing gift photo books before. The customer service and pricing were great, but I wouldn't use them to print a portfolio.
