As many of you know, I tend to be rather reticent to promote products on this blog. Honestly I’m kinda hard to impress and as momma always said, “if you don’t have anything nice to say…” well you know the rest. I make rare exceptions for products or services about which I feel strongly. One of them that I have used for many years is Shutterfly.com. Originally I used them to print Christmas photo cards and with truly excellent results.
I must say, though, the coolest thing we’ve done via Shutterfly is putting together custom photo books (not photo albums, mind you, but actually hard bound books) of photos… in our case they were from our wedding. We had bought the electronic rights to the photos from the wedding photographer and my wife tailored books of photos with captions specifically for different family members. I have one on the credenza behind me as I type.
Here’s the thing, if you are like us you take a ton of digital photos. You could send everyone a stack, but they’ll end up decorating the bottom of some drawer. Here’s a better idea. How about the photographic highlights of your family’s or child’s year, in a format they can put on the shelf and enjoy year after year? I should note Shutterfly also does tons of other things like holiday party invitations, some really cool photo gifts, and much more.
They are running some good specials. Check ’em out…. and tell them Daddy sent you!
