Our Travel Books

Want to keep those travel photos where they will be safe and easy to access years from now? Have concerns about recollecting details of that great vacation? Want to remember names and addresses of favorite restaurants that you can recommend? We have an answer that fits our concerns perfectly.

After each trip we take time to compose a book about the trip. We’ve discovered these are good alternatives to boring our friends and relatives with a slide show. If guests seem interested, it is easy to pass around our trip books. We also look forward to sharing them with our grandchildren and refreshing our memories as time goes by.

There are a number of services that allow you to create a custom designed book from your own photographs and have it professionally printed and mailed back to you. People use these services to create wedding albums, family photo albums, special occasion records and unique gift items. While we have created books for a number of reasons, our favorite is to keep a record of our travels.

The process is simple and easy. You create an online account, upload photographs to the online project site and use the website to pick your format, design each page and add copy. These services also offer numerous styles to pick from and decorative accents you can add to the pages. When you finish, simply order, pay and expect a finished book to come in the mail in a few days.

Probably the largest of these services is Shutterfly but you should also look into Blurb and Snapfish along with services within popular photo software like Apple’s Photo.
