I ended up using the custom publisher feature. It was easier for me to keep my photos in the order I wanted doing it that way instead of just having the program insert photos into the book. Once I got into a rhythm it went pretty fast. I actually ended up making a "yearbook" for 2011 too! I uploaded my books with about 15 minutes to spare before the promo ran out. :)
They finally arrived and I was so excited! Even the inside of the box was cute!
I'm super pleased with the quality of the book. The covers are really nice and the photo quality on the pages is beautiful.
I love the books and we're going to start making a yearbook every year. It's so fun to look through them and remember all the fun times we had last year. My only complaint about the entire process is that I couldn't figure out how to upload two different books on one order so I had to pay for shipping twice. But, I did save about $70 on each books so extra shipping costs weren't such a big deal. Anyone else a fan of creating photo books? I can't believe it took me so long to jump on the bandwagon!
