One of my all time favourite gift choices is a personalized photo book from Blurb. I have talked about Blurb before on this blog because I just love them so much!
What is Blurb?
Blurb is a people-powered book publishing platform that enables anyone to produce a bookstore quality book. Blurb’s BookSmart software is free to download and works on a Mac or PC. Within BookSmart, there are a wide variety of professionally designed layouts and other customizable options like backgrounds, borders, colors, etc to select from. You can import photos (from Flickr, iPhoto, Picasa, Photobucket, SmugMug or your computer), text, or even your blog (via Blurb’s blog “slurper”). Order one copy or many. Your book will arrive in 5-10 days.
Prices start at $12.95 for a 7x7 softcover book, $19.95 for a 10x8” softcover book, and $54.95 for a hardcover book with dust jacket. Blurb also features hardcover ImageWrap as a cover option. ImageWrap prints your cover image directly onto the front and back of the book for a durable, matte finish that feels like a high-end art book.
Blurb now offers flat rate shipping! Pay $6.99 ($7.99 Canadian) for up to 5 books (any size, any weight) to be delivered via ground shipping.
You can also make your book available in Blurb’s Bookstore so that family and friends can order it directly from Blurb.
If you’re lacking time or creative mojo, check out BlurbNation, a marketplace where you can find professional designers who will design your book for you.
A Blurb book would be the perfect gift for ANY family member- especially those grandparents or long distance relatives!
The folks at Blurb are offering a $36.95 bookmaking gift code to TWO of my lucky readers! (I am under no obligation to say anything nice about Blurb in return for these codes- I just really like them!)
