about Photobooks. found these and would like to share here :
I think their printing is very good. The color was saturated and the pages have a nice satin sheen. Excellent sharpness on the three books I have done there. My only problem is the stupid hole in the cover that lets the first page come through. I can't use them anymore for that reason. NOTE: the big one (11x15) is really pretty awesome with the right content.
Very much like their production quality, and the binding is excellent. I also recommend the slip covers. I have made a few 7"x7" and have been quite pleased. Great color and sharpness.
I really like these guys. You simply cannot beat the quality for the price. No way. If you have well prepared files, the work is simply wonderful. Very much like magazine printing/saturation. I have created 5 books at LuLu and have been pleased with each.
Similar quality to LuLu.com, but with the addition of a layout tool for those who are not designers. I prefer to design my own pages, and the Blurb book was very nice. Could have used a touch more saturation, but I printed without testing and probably could have pumped it a bit more on my end.
These guys are my favorites: Top quality printing, and incredible quality. These are not on the low end of pricing though. My Design/photo portfolio is a 12x12 60 pages, wieghs about 4 pounds and has a 1/4" steel etched cover. Price was nearly $450 with design by me. I just decided to add a pic of it cause I am kinda proud of it. ;-)
