Shutterfly Photo Books {Review/Giveaway}

By Friday, July 29, 2011 246 No tags Permalink 0


I love to take photos. I 116.24 GB in photos! Which translates to 43,877 files, mostly super big in size (3000 x 2008 pixels, 300 dpi). I have often thought of creating scrapbooks but it all stopped at the thought. Scrapbooking materials are so expensive. The digital kind can be easily built but I often found myself getting new sets and never really using them.

Thankfully there are sites like Shutterfly that will take the load off your back with their amazing photo books! Just recently I was given the opportunity of giving their photo books a try and, being the photo junkie that I am, I couldn’t say no!


The process is fast and easy. There are plenty of themes to choose from: wedding, baby, kids, summer, holidays, etc. I decided to go with the kids’ theme Planes, Trains, Automobiles since, well, both my loves love them all! Specially wee-oohs (aka firetrucks)!



With Shutterfly’s custom path, you can build your photo book your way. I found out that a white page was sort of intimidating. I often stared at a page while trying to figure out what I wanted to. Thankfully every theme gives you a few built pages to start with where all is missing are the photos. Of course there are layouts too where you simply choose where the photo will be located and you get to choose the background, text and embellishments. And if you are super cool, you can make your own layouts from scratch! I am not that cool….not yet.
Shutterfly offers much more than just photo books. You can also find amazing Christmas Photo Cards as well as thank you cards.
