I feel a little ashamed that I did not know about the awesomeness that is blurb.com before this weekend. I've made countless photo books and photo projects at Shutterfly & Paper Coeterie in the past, but couldn't quite figure out how to get some of my new Instagram photos into a book.
And wouldn't you know Blurb does that? It's so easy! A few of my favorite features:
The books are so easy to make!
You can pull photos from Instagram, Facebook, Picasa, and your computer
The prices are very affordable
You can convert any photo book into an e-book for $1.99! Imagine how fun it would be to share your photo book with friends and family in an e-book?
Apparently you can make a Blurb book within Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4. I have no idea how to do that, but it sounds fabulous.
Things I didn't like? Shipping is a little expensive ($7.99 for the slowest shipping). There aren't the "fun" photo projects you can find on Shutterfly & Paper Coeterie (calendars, mugs, etc.). But the process was so easy & simple that I can't really complain.
Blurb has many many many more uses than just photo books. I'm considering taking some of my best blog posts and putting them in a Blurb book to keep as a journal :) The possibilities are endless!
I can't wait to show you the final product! Have you ever created something on Blurb? I'd love to hear about it! Head over to Blurb now and get 15% off your order with code 15OFFBLURB!
