Shutterfly Photo Books

December 7th, 2013 at 07:49 am

Over the past few years, I've been trying to catch up on our photo printing. We do a photo book each year (I complete it in early January and wait for a promo to have it printed).

If I see a promo earlier in the year, I print one of the past years I haven't printed yet. I was missing 2006, 2008 and 2010.

Anyway, I received a $10 off coupon in the mail, so I decided to work on 2008. I guess it was a good year for photos (D is a children's photographer), because I ended up with 64 pages! Eeek!

But... they were having a 50% off promo for photo books. And I found a 20% off the entire order coupon. And there was a free shipping code.

In the end, we got the photo book plus our holiday cards (I would probably not send these, but D is insistent - we have a lot of overseas family who we don't see very often) for $54. I think it was about a $70 savings.

I should mention that I have a line item in our budget for this (I put in $10 a month - so $120/year) which will go down once I finish the previous years (now just 2006 and 2010 - yay!!).

There are obviously other companies that do this, but I'm really familiar with shutterfly now.

Do you make photo books? Or print photos and put them in an album? Or print photos and put them in a box? Or just keep them on your computer? Or something else entirely?

    I never take photos, but ask my DH to make some for me a couple times a month. Maybe one in 50 get printed. Few are stored digitally. I just want to view something in a fresh way, and after I have examined the photo, it can be ditched. We have few family photos. Like yours, my DH is a pro, but the Cobbler's Shoeless Children Principle applies here.

    Nearly all of our photos are on our computer. My mother made a photo book for each of our daughters to give to them at age 10, covering their life to that point. We have two photo books of vacations. I like that you stay pretty much up to date with those. It is a good idea! I'm going to make a photo book for my parents for Christmas, the book will be free with a promotion with school pictures and I will pay for shipping.
