So call me crazy, but I usually begin my Christmas shopping in September. Finding that perfect gift for my relatives stumps me every year, especially when they are always saying they don’t need anything. But I have found with a little planning, I am able find that perfect gift for anyone at snapfish.com. I’ve used the online photo site for personalized calendars, coffee mugs, mouse pads and photo books. They have so many unique ideas for personalized gifts, but by far my favorite to give and receive, are their photo books.
Now exclusively at Snapfish.com, you can create a Premium 11"x14" photo book featuring innovative lay-flat pages for seamless viewing of your favorite photos. This new binding technology provides hinged pages which allow every page to lay-flat easily and naturally. A great solution for photo books you want to openly display and share. Enjoy up to 90 pages of eye-catching photo spreads with no sections of your photos lost in the binding. Plus, the modern size makes this book an elegant gift for loved ones or a prized coffee table display.
For the review of this new 11”X14” lay-flat photo book, I decided to create a photo book of our 2012 trip to Disney World for my youngest daughter. I suppose this will be a gift the whole family can enjoy, but since I created a special book for my older daughter after her first visit, I figure it’s only fair to do the same for daughter #2.
If you’ve never created a photo book at snapfish.com, the process is quite easy. Simply create an account, upload your photos, pick a book format and then create! Snapfish.com will store your photos and allow you to save your projects if you need to come back another time or add new photos later. I often work on my Christmas photo gifts throughout the fall because simply finding the time to sit down and create is often hard to come by once the holiday season rolls around.
When I found the time to create my 2012 Disney vacation book, I already had an idea of how I would like to layout my book. If you’ve created one book with snapfish.com then you’ll find the other types of books, including the 11”X14” lay-flat, are relatively the same. Now choosing exactly which photos would make the cut for my photo book was probably the hardest part of creating. Fortunately, with the ability to fill up to 90 pages with one or multiple photos, I was afforded plenty of space for the hundreds of photos my camera-happy (and talented) husband captured.
Since the new 11”X14” photo album has a more modern look to it, I debated whether or not to include text with each photo or create something more artistic using only images. Being a gift for my daughter, I finally decided that text would be best to help her remember her first trip to Disney World. I was inspired by the many children’s books we have collected over the years and created a special personalized photo book all about our adventure. I know this great big book filled with special photos is going to bring a great big smile to her face.
I encourage you to check out snapfish.com to see all they have to offer. The new 11”X14” lay-flat photo book is not only a great gift to give, but also a great way to record a special event or create your own work of art to enjoy. Snapfish.com makes the design process simple and the amazing quality of their photo books will bring a smile to your face too!
