Why is Smilebooks better?


Well, I am glad you asked. They use thicker paper than the other guys do. The book is sturdier and of higher quality. Most importantly, the book is hand reviewed before it is sent out. I was lucky enough to get to try their Design Services. I usually will not review a photo book. It is so much work keeping up with myself, the kids, the blog. We can't all look pretty, and something usually has to be sacrificed. It is usually the blog, sometimes the house  or sometimes me. (Never the kids.) Needless to say, I don't have any more hours in my day to sit down and design a photo book. I wish I did have the time. 


Smilebooks is unique because you upload your photos that you like and that's it. No I mean it! That's it! They pick and choose the layout and use the theme you chose, there are quite a few of those, actually. I even uploaded about 100 pictures, and just trusted them to choose which ones fit together best. It was cool because they took the photos from the beach, and put them all in one area, with a beach background on those pages. Even better there were little nice touches, like starfish and sand dollars. Then, the pictures that were taken at the hotel of us in the same outfits all ended up on one page as well. Well, they really spanned 2 pages. It was really neat and really easy for me. 


I gotta say- I am impressed and I love the new book. Devonny is so funny though; because she sits down and flips through it, pointing at pictures of Giana, going, "Gigi! Gigi!" On every picture of her beloved big sister! It's so sweet!




 Photo books can be completely time consuming. Especially if you want it to look just right. There is the uploading, placing pictures, arranging, cropping, I know for a fact it can take 2-3 hours normally. 
Nope. Took me the 10 minutes to choose the 100 photos, and another 10 to upload. Finally, when they get it just right in a few days they will email you for approval or changes. I got the 8X11 hardcover book. $114.00 value! I saw no need for any changes, I thought it was perfect! Everyone I have showed it to really likes it as well! The picture quality is awesome because the pages are really glossy and the images are extremely crisp and clear.


Why don't I just show you a few pictures of it? ( I didn't include all of the pictures, just some)

I like the small smilebooks best because the calendars are neat but after the year is over, you throw them out and a small photo book you can keep forever and take it places with you.
