Well take that everyone! I received her printed, first year, photo book in the mail just the other day. And I will admit – if it wasn’t for the super easy Picaboo software, I might not be able to brag about this accomplishment.
I made her entire first year photo book in just one night. I stayed up really, really, late. But I got it done and ordered and bam! She has a super adorable baby book.
How cute is this spread? I love the full-page photos. Next time I am going to do a double-page spread with the lay-flat pages. I should have ordered lay-flat pages this time since Lucy will be looking at this over and over and over. Lay-flat pages are more durable – the normal pages are thinner. And they make double-page spreads really pop off the page.
I have used a few other photo-book companies and there are a few things I appreciated about Picaboo. First, I loved the software! Look at the image below – it is so easy to use and I don’t have to use a browser to do it. (Using a browser slows down my computer).
Next, their customer service is amazing. If you go to the Picaboo website, their customer care center is easy to find and use. Plus, they are all over social media and easily accessible. If you are an online scrapbooker you will really enjoy the Picaboo blog. I just found a helpful post about how to take photos for double page spread.
Finally, they are always running amazing deals. When you open the Picaboo Desktop App, it loads the most current deals for you. I highly suggest subscribing to their newsletter too because you can find out about 2 day deals (once I saw a deal for BOGO photo books).
These makes super affordable and oh-so-heartwarming gifts. Regular, custom books start at only $10! Then the gorgeous leather ones are still only $40.
