Wrap Up Your Year in Photos

December 24, 2012

Like many parents who have had children in the past 5 years, I have thousands of photos of my daughter.  Between our 2 iPhones, the camera, the grandparents and the aunts and uncles, there are billions of pixels devoted to her (beautiful) face.  I love having the freedom to document every little milestone, but holy moly, what if I drop my phone into the toilet (again.  ahem.) and haven’t backed it up? There is still a place in my life for hard copies of my favorite photos, and the end of the year is the perfect time to create one.  Luckily, having your pictures printed and bound into a book is easier than ever! Choose your best moments from 2012 and have them printed with one of these great companies.


Shutterfly is one of the most well known photo book companies, and for good reason.  They’ve got tons of options, and there are always coupon codes and promotions (free shipping on orders over $30 with code SHIP30).



I am in the process of making an epic photobook from Blurb.  I like this company because it supports a lot of platforms (including Instagram), and because it allows you to download a program to save your progress on your own computer.



Snapfish also has a bunch of options for layouts, and appeals to folks who like a more scrapbook-y look.  They also give you the option to upload your photos, and automatically make a book from them without having to mess with the sizing, layouts, order, etc.



We have a Mosaic photo book, and I love everything about it.  It’s so simple to put together (via an iPhone app), the pricing is straightforward ($20), and the shipping is fast.  It came is such a pretty box, and would make a perfect gift.  And it’s very cool looking, to boot!!



I think Pinhole Press wins for highest quality, and most awesome products.  My favorites are their board books and custom memory game!  My next book is coming from these guys.


I think it’s worth it to take the time to print your photos so you can enjoy them, instead of having to stare at a tiny screen all the time!
