This fall, my oldest nephew got married (yes, my nephew. I’m the youngest of 8, remember? I’m kind of the generation in the “middle”). Needless to say we had a million and more photos from the wedding, maybe in part because all three of my kids were IN the wedding?!?! and I love taking pictures. Given the closeness of my kids with the bride and groom and all, when My Publisher asked me if I wanted to do a review of their photo books, I jumped at the chance. There wasn’t going to be another time for me to get those photos organized so quickly, so I went for it. After signing up for an account and a quick download of their software, I was good to go. (Photo will be changed to one of my book when another nephew can unhide all of my images from my laptop- he promises they are not gone but I can’t find them).
It took me maybe 25 minutes to get my 100+ photos set to go in the book, then organize and place each page as I wanted it. Given that the book really just encompasses one event, this probably would have taken me a lot longer for any other book I make. Maybe not. I over think things a lot…
Once my book was finished I was able to preview it (I have actually had a dickens of a time with other photo book creating companies and their preview options- never seems to work for me!!) with ease, making sure my fonts and text looked ok placed on the cover, the captions for photos, and the spine of the book itself. Once I was happy with what I was seeing, I clicked to upload my creation to the My Publisher site and voila!! A few minutes later I was confirming my purchase and DONE!! Just a few days later I had my shipping confirmation and within a few days of that the book arrived, well protected from the elements or heavy objects, and we’ve enjoyed it since.
When I say enjoyed it, I mean it. My kids, as I said, were IN the wedding, so they’ve been looking at these pages over and over and over again. We’ve brought it with us when we visit my dad in assisted living twice, and probably will again in a few weeks. This book is really well made and stands up to much loving and attention from a 2, 4 and 6 year old. (And, a 77 year old). I’m really happy with how this book turned out, the speed of processing my order, the shipping, and the quality of the book itself. The precious memories of the wedding are preserved and able to be enjoyed over and over again by all of us.
Another thing I’ve noticed about My Publisher is that they always seem to have codes available for discounts or free product – which always gets me wanting to check a company out. I’m hooked, though and will definitely use this service again!!
One of my readers will win a traditional 20 page photo book!! This is a SHORT duration giveaway because the winner code expires 11/12 so I’m ending it on 11/10 at midnight. Good luck!!
