In Print

In the age of digital photography, it is easy to share an enjoy your photos without printing them. While I do not print all of the photos I take, I still enjoy having a tangible product. There are countless ways and places to print photos and projects, so I will highlight 3 of my favorite sites that I have used recently.
I love Shutterfly's 8x8 photo books! I have printed multiple books and just printed 2 for Father's Day gifts. If you subscrible to their email list, you will find that they regularly run sales. I am currently using my Pampers Gifts to Grow points for these books, so I only pay for extra pages, tax, and shipping. The custom path option is getting better and better on this site. Make sure to save often, since I did have the site crash on me once. I love their books for printing a large number of my photos in an organized manner and for making gifts.

Tiny Prints
I just used this site for cards recently and was happy with the result. They have cute, quality photo cards. I plan to order more cards from them in the future.

Scrapbook Pictures
This is my go-to site for printing unique photo sizes and digital scrapbook pages. I have been using My Digital Studio for over a year and finally printed out my 12x12 digital scrapbook layouts. I orginally wanted to print them through Stampin' Up!, but I did not find their printing service as intuative as their software. I went back to this site, and am happy with the results. I may give the Stampin' Up! printing services another try, but it is hard to beat the price and quality of prints from this company.

Next, I want to try out a service that will print your blog into a photo book.
