For those of you who haven’t yet heard of it, Blurb are a company that makes photobooks.
When Mr M and I first got engaged I bought an Oh So Cherished Journal, which is basically a set of romantic questions which you answer and give to your partner on the morning/night before the wedding. The journal itself is lovely – its made from leather with nice quality pages, space to put your photos in and it comes in a nice presentation box. For anyone who isn’t a perfectionist and worries that they’ll make a spelling mistake or if you are someone with lovely writing, this is perfect for you. I however, have neither of these traits and so I decided to sell the Oh So Cherished Journal and make one via a photobook maker.
I must have tried at least 5 different online photo book creators before finding Blurb and its simple and easy to use online tool. It allowed me to edit what I wanted, put photos where I wanted and leave them out from where I didn’t want them. There was also a lot of different templates and sizes and scope to use your own colours. The only bad point I found was the p&p – quite steep at £4.99 I thought!
But anyway. I created a romantic journal through Blurb for Mr M and in total it cost me a little over £20 including p&p. This included 15% off for new customers. And I’ll also save another £1.06 through the cash back I’ll get from Quidco for going through their site.
