i think you can do them online on fugifilm or kodak... but u can get handy albums done in the chemist for €40...

We did ours just before Christmas from mypublisher.com. Its easy enough to use and there are different styles that you can apply - they even have a wedding one. We got leather bound and the largest size I think for 100 dollars (this did include a discount as we had a code) when you sign up they give you a 20 dollar voucher to use which we used on our honeymoon album as a test run and we were so impressed with the quality that we did the wedding one up straight away. The paper they use is really good everyone who has seen it has commented on it. It took 5 days from us uploading our order to receiving it just before Christmas as they Fedex them.

We got ours from Blurb.com. I found them really good. It was 60 euro for the largest size album with about 35 pages. We went for the premium (heavier) paper. We only did it a few weeks ago, it took 5 days to deliver. PM me if you want any more info!

I found Snapfish good. We used them for our honeymoon album and then made two parent books once we got our disc from the photographers. I think paper quality is pretty good and we didn't go for the most expensive option either! Just the hardcover storybook style. Best of luck and have fun with it!

I've used previously and found it fab. There's a few different album types and you can do loads of stuff with them. Really reasonable as well.

Why don't you try an Irish company, based in Klonakilty, Co. Cork, prices are very competitive and in my view a lot better than some of the international ones. Fergul

have to agree with above re [url:yjys4ok4]http://www.blurb.com[/url:yjys4ok4], i spent a lot of time looking at the different deals and they were the best. the basic size / price goes up to 40 pages whichs is more than alot of the others and you really need it as you ahve so many photos that you want to include. Great thing is that you can do your own and also ones for Mothers, just save yours are a template and then you can change some of the family & friend photos to suit each side. If you need any help just let me know
