    Photobooks Blurb?

    I'm curious which photobook publishers are your favorites. I was using MPIX but wasn't that happy. I mean the prices are alright but I found the quality just okay. Previous to that I went directly through Apple. That's why I tried MPIX. But I hate the limitation of page counts with almost all of them.
    I found one called Viovio that was very inexpensive with no page limitation, but it was way to complicated for me. They don't provide a software download so you can't see or proof a product. Might be good for someone who has more expertise in printing/publishing than I do.

    Finally I just recently found one called blurb.
    Pricing is great and there are no page limitations.
    Has anyone out there used them at all? I'm curious as to what you think.
    Or any that you use that you like.

    I should have my first book in about two weeks, (they aren't quick), so if anyone's interested I can let you know.

    Check out this thread. Sounds like a lot of people are happy with blurb.

    Have you made your own photo book?

    I like Sharedin.com, since they take books I create inside Aperture.

    I use Smilebooks.com to create any photo book. The software is a breeze [read: easy to use ] and print, paper qualities are awesome!
