A while ago, I read a post on Young House Love about creating a family yearbook (my friends think this term is ridiculous, but I think it's kind of charming, SO I WIN). I decided I also wanted to create a family yearbook with highlights from the previous year, and then I immediately shelved that idea because I'm very, very good at coming up with good ideas and doing nothing about them.
Thankfully, I stumbled upon this at Pinterest about the best sites to print photo books and it reminded me of my desire to print a yearbook.
I settled on the site AdoramaPix.
First, here's the price breakdown of photo books:
(Click to enlarge!)
I chose the 10x10 book with 26 pages and found a 30%-off coupon. (My total cost of the book was $45.92 including shipping.)
AdoramaPix easily let me upload photos from both my laptop and Flickr, so it was no problem importing. It also showed me which photos were in use in the book at any given time, so I didn't double use one.
You can choose from a variety of layouts and themes.
I chose the Year in Review theme and then Yearbook.
I kept my layouts pretty straightforward, just to protect my sanity, but if I did want to remove a photo or text square, it was easy to do. I also swapped out some fonts and treatment and that was no problem, either.
When the book came, I was blown away by the quality, quite honestly. The stock was substantial, and nearly all the photos turned out crisp and eye-catching.
Some photos my book:
(I loved how some of the photos spread across two pages, without issue at all.)
I was so pleased, and hope to print future books with this company!
