I ended up placing my order, because I don't think I had enough time to learn new software to print a new book. I ordered a hard cover book for my DH grandmother. I normally only order the small soft cover books.

However none of my books ever looked like yours. How do you manage that? I really like the backgrounds and all. Your really look great. I use the standarad mypuplisher softwear. How did you make them like that?

I wonder if I should contact them about the book I have that feel apart. It is a few months old though, I don't think I have the receipt any more.

DisneyPhD,

The stuff I got printed are digital layouts I made in Photoshop.

When you get your book, could you post a close up photo of the binding so I can see exactly what kind of binding it is. The one thing I like about publisher is that it is full bleed, which you can't get with Shutterfly.

I will be working on my WDW/DCL scrapbook which I am doing digitally and want to get those printed in a photo book as well but I was thinking of hard cover but Shutterfly's hard covers are only 8x11 roughly and the photos are not as big as the album, there is a large white border around them.

I will post some photos of the shutterfly books when I get them.

This will be my 1st hard cover, but I can take a picture of one of an old soft cover one for you.

That is really cool that you can do that in photo shop. I need to look more into that. I have gotten into making digital scrap books for friends and family and vactions and I would love to make them look like yours (minis the binding issue. )

Hi, I got my 1st hard cover book in the mail from them. It is great, DH grandmother is going to love it. Very good quality, no binding problems at all.

The price is more then a soft cover book, but so nice for specail things.

I have had excellent luck posting my concerns at planetfeedback.com - even when I have received no satisfaction directly from a vendor I seem to get attention when using planetfeedback.com

Good luck!

DisneyPhD,

Glad to hear! Perhaps when you have some time to spare you could take a close up photo of the binding (maybe from the top with the book open?) and post it for us to see??

RobinMarie,

Thanks for the info, on my way now to check it out!

I will do that. It always takes me a while to get them from the camera to the computer, but I will be doing that after Christmas so I will post then.

I really want to learn to makes ones like yours. Those are great. I can't wait to get started. How much does photoshop cost?
