photo book companies- your preference ?

Hi all - following our trip to FL a few weeks back (is it really that long?) I want to create a photo book of memories. Would like to add text to it so it can't be just photos

So then dibbers if you create these which company do you use ?

I've only used Tesco before and they were fine. I've heard good reports of bonusprint and cewe (so?) Bit am open to suggestions

Personally I find Tesco to be poor, not tried books but the prints and other stuff are not good. I use DSCL for prints and they are vey good, think they do books too.

Apple are my choice for books.

Interesting - thank you

I have a feeling that alot of the places that sell these books use the same manufacturer who is based in mainland Europe somewhere .

I had one done by Tesco many years ago and was happy with the result.

This time I went to bonusprint - got a herd discount and am looking forward to seeing the results

Thanks again

I have many photobox.co.uk ones - they are lovely quality but they've really increased the prices this year so I've held back on my latest trip. Do not pay full price! There are usually 30%+ off sales that come around - signup and wait for emailed 'offers' - some you have to create immediately, some include a credit for 1/3 months if it takes you awhile (it does me).

My average 100 page book has been about 30, this year they are asking 44

However, if you want fewer pages it would be cheaper - they are relatively easy to use, load as many pics as you want, different layers, backgrounds - all their stuff is great but you have to wait for the right sale

Agree with waiting for the offers. I've usually had some photos sorted ready for speed filling of a book.

I've asked for 2 copies with 14 extra pages and glossy and the total is about 42 including delivery which I am pleased with. OH found me a 40% off code and I got 5% for signing up to emails

No competition blurb/

You can get very granular like, paper quality, covers (hardback, soft, sleeved) etc.

Complete control and if you are ok with photoshop etc you can do anything
