Have you run out of fun, productive activities or projects to tackle while sheltering in place? Guess what–this might just be that perfect time to create that family photo book that you have been putting off! Let’s face it, most of us take zillions of pictures and never have the time to organize them, let alone create analog photo books and albums. There are always too many other things to juggle.
The good news (and we need every bit of it these days!) is that the COVID-19 pandemic may be that golden opportunity to relive happy memories, namely of family vacations. If your kids are old enough, you could scroll through all those photos stored on your phone and laptop together. Kids love seeing photos of themselves. This could keep them busy for a little while.
No more procrastinating–let’s get started! We’ve made it super easy for you and have done all the time consuming research work. We can virtually guarantee that all the websites listed below can help you create a wonderful family photo book that you will treasure in the many years to come.
Here we go!
This website showcases many family history photo book ideas. The quality of work is simply stunning. With Blurb, you can customize every aspect of your creative vision. One could say that it feels more like a self-publishing website than a quick drag-and-drop generator. Not only do they offer family tree photo book ideas, but they also offer everything from family recipe ledgers to cookbooks. You can even get a cute little alphabet product for your little one.
Chatbooks uses a neat subscription service designed for those who want picture booklets on a more frequent basis. One of the things that set this site apart from the others is its awesome photo formatting. The price of albums and cards starts from $1. You customize them from start to finish, and it’s nice to know that you can make so many of them without breaking the bank.
If you’re looking for books with a gorgeous format and high attention to detail, this is the site for you. One of the first things we noticed is how professional the printing and lettering is, not to mention the exquisite texture of the paper. They have various unique formats for their products, including spiral bound board types which are brilliant choices for toddlers. They also offer other options such as lay-flat photo books, brag books, and much more. The only downside is that this modern style isn’t the cheapest in the world. For example, a softcover 68-page product costs around $45.
This website creates some of the most stunning photo albums we have ever seen. We particularly like this one because of how the website integrates with their recently launched iOS app which can make creating the product a whole lot simpler. The quality of work is second to none. They bind their hardbacks in linen and offer a wide variety of choices for dust jackets. They are a little on the pricey side. A 50-page album starts at around $69 and a 200-page book will cost around $189 However, the photo albums are undeniably a fabulous long-lasting investment.
Last but not least is Pikto a website offering photo albums and books, prints, wall decor, and gifts. The quality of their photo books and albums is excellent with a full range of formats and price points.
So there you have it–some of the best websites for creating family photo books. We guarantee that any of these sites offers superior service and pulls out all the stops to get you the product you deserve. Hopefully, you will create some long-lasting memories in style. And if you’d like to do good while printing out your most memorable family photos, GoodPrints allows you to turn your images into high-quality wall art, calendars, and home decor items with 10% from each purchase donated to a worthy cause!
