I’m confident that I’m not alone here. Have you spent hours of your life at the computer making a photo book online? Between choosing the photos, editing them, adding in captions and “stickers”, rearranging, and then spell-checking it feels like hours of your life have been sucked away, never to be had again. Oh, and on top of that, we probably waited until the last minute to take advantage of a deal so the added time crunch on top of all of the previously mentioned stresses must be mentioned!
Well Shutterfly gets it, and has solved all of our problems for a VERY low cost (only $9.99)!
Make My Book is a new service that makes the photo book creation process extremely fast. People, fast means fast. Last night at 8:30pm I set up my book. All that needs to be done is to sign up for a Shutterfly account, choose a book size and style, upload photos and that’s it! So when I say “set up” my book, I really mean it took me 2 minutes to do barely nothing at all. From that point a Shutterfly rep professionally designed my photo book. And THIS morning at 6:00am I was sent a preview of the book they made for me! Though they say to allow 3 days, it took less than 12 hours! Amazing.
The book I created was a memory of our story for my Mother-in-Law for Christmas. I had photos of my husband and I dating, married, pre-kids, then a few shots of how our family changed over the last 9 years of our marriage, including the addition of our pug and then four children. Shutterfly took note of the dates and arranged photos chronologically.
I was pleasantly surprised to see that Shutterfly also added in some stickers with special quotes like “Embracing Life”, “This is my happy place”, and “Nothing says love like family”. They arranged my book so I got the maximum use out of my photos selected.
It was super easy for me to go through and move photos as I wished. I only swapped out two pictures, and then re-cropped one, other than those 5-minute revisions, there wasn’t a thing I felt I had to do to this perfect memory book! My Mother-in-Law is going to love this gift!
In total, my 8×8 hardcover, 46 page book, cost $63.53 without using any of the promo codes that Shutterfly has out there. Including their BUY MORE SAVE MORE event going on right now (ends Sunday, November 8th) where I will get 30% off.
Head on over to Shutterfly and create your memory book now, letting THEM do the work for you!
