Japan Photobooks

More than a year later...I finally finished our Japan honeymoon albums! (old recaps of that big trip here: xxxx)
I waited until I had obtained two Groupons for Blurb - each $45 dollars worth of Blurb for $20 dollars.

Then, I waited until the coupons had almost expired! Nothing like expiration motivation.
Front covers
Each book has about 270 pictures in it.  A total of 540 of my favorite shots!

Though I got the smallest size book (7x7), the pictures still look great in full bleed!

I don't really know why I broke the pictures up into two books. Probably because my coupons expired at different times. But I'm glad this long overdue project is finished!
Back covers
Now I can..what? Work on the wedding albums? Hahahahaha....

Married folk, have you finished up all your album and memory keepsakes yet?

  3. Your albums look great!! We lucked out that wedding albums were included in our package, but I've been dragging my feet on doing one with the honeymoon pictures. I need to get on that.

  6. Cute! This will be a fun way to remember your adventure forever. We have a small book for our wedding, but until my parents gave us a present of big portraits when they came to visit in September, we didn't have any physical pictures printed from our wedding!

  7. That's awesome!! They look great! I used blurb for my dad's 60th birthday photobook, I really liked the quality. I totally sat on our honeymoon photobook, but ended up slapping one together (like, literally, just threw a max of 5 pictures per day into a photobook -- also with a groupon) for Todd for our paper anniversary. =) Our actual wedding albums were done in time (barely) for Christmas, so that we could give one to our parents. And I finished our wedding/honeymoon scrapbook a few months ago. I'm glad I did, though, it feels great to finish!
