So HAPPY 254 Page Image Wrap Book
Book Printing

The book I just received this week turned out beautifully!  I am so pleased with the quality of the imagewrap, the pictures, just everything.

 BLURB EXCELLENT JOB!!!

 They really outdid themselves.  So far I have been happy overall with everything I’ve ordered from Blurb.  This is my third book but so far I have ordered multiple copies of others and when something is wrong Blurb’s customer service has been great & they have been wonderful fixing problems on any of the other books I’ve done.

 Again, Thanks Blurb.  Well worth the money!

Are photobooks the new photo albums?
Book Printing

Dear Mackenzie:

I still scrapbook the old fashioned way but I take way too many pictures so for Christmas did a 384 page hardback with dustcover from blurb that had about 1,000 pictures in it. I gave them out as Christmas gifts. I am not a photographer and use a point and shoot Kodak and now a Sony H3 ( a christmas gift from my husband). The first shipment the bindings were coming loose on the book. I contacted blurb, they reprinted and emailed me a label so I could send back the books. 

 My family loved the books and told me they were priceless even if blurb hadn’t fixed the bindings because it contained our memories.  I included a few out of focus and blurry photographs but no-one cared because they wanted the memories.  You can’t go wrong.  The quality of the photographs I thought was amazing but I’m an amatuer who has scrapbooked and allowed scrapbooking to teach me how to take my pictures.

 Good luck with whatever you do.

Reprinted 384 page books beautiful!!!!
Book Printing

I just received my reprinted books yesterday.  While I wasn’t overjoyed having to wait on them I am glad I did.  They are absolutely beautiful.  No pages falling out and the quality of the binding is much better. I will definitely use blurb again.

7 X 7 small books awesome - 8 x 10 albums 384 pages separating from bind...
Ordering and Shipping

The 7×7 books are awesome 55 page hardback books I gave as gifts tonight.  No complaints.

The 8 X 10 books which my family wrapped today and only opened one and pages were falling out of it from the center.  The other two 8 X 10’s are separating from the binding from the front page.  I was very embarrassed when our family opened them. I am hoping blurb will replace them and make this right as we would like more books for other family members but are a bit gun shy at this point because of the binding issue.  The printing was great, no complaints, the quality of the photographs was great just the pages not staying in is a big problem especially when I spent almost $300 american dollars on just the 8 X 10 books.  I guess I’m too stupid it won’t let me just attach a picture so if anyone wants to see I can email it to them.

My first book - Review and Pictures
Book Printing

Loved the pictures.   After reading the reviews I’ve been a little skittish about my big order – 3 hardback 8X10 books with 384 pages and 3 7X7 hardback books with 55 pages.  These are Christmas gifts and I didn’t have time to order one and get it and then order the rest so I’m putting my faith blindly in Blurb and hopefully I will feel as good as you do about your order.

My first book turned out quite well - photos of the book
Book Printing

I hope my book turns out half as well. I’m still waiting hoping and praying I see them by Christmas.  I did what you did because I ran out of time also.  I have six hardback books on them.  Three with 384 pages and three with about 55 pages.  Your post makes me feel better.
