    Wink New!

    Hi,
    My goal is to make three scrapbooks by Christmas! Our youngest is graduating from HS this year so I wanted to make a baby thru graduation book for all three. Guess the sentimental feelings are getting the best of me!
    Anyway, in my eagerness i bought all sorts of stuff I really don't know how to use. I did one page and that took me about 3 hrs!! Well, needless to say.....I can download a heck of a lot of pictures in 3 hrs!
    This looks so much fun, and i LOVE the professional look of the pages. That was much more of the idea i had going into this.
    One question I have is, can books be made and bound? or do i have the pages printed and slipped into my own book?
    Thank You! look forward to the process!

    Hi and welcome to SBM ... glad you are here and I'm sure you are going to have lots of fun.

    You have a couple of options that I know about for making bound books. Shutterfly.com will make them in all sorts of sizes. You choose the pictures online, set up the book and they print and send it to you.

    Then there is Epson who do a kit which turns your photos into a hard bound book - more information Here
    Had look on the internet and apparently HP do a version of this as well - take a look Here

    There was also a system you can buy where you get a little stand that heats up the spine of the book and glues all your pages in. Just found the thread here in SBM all about it Here

    Hope this helps

    I tend to put my pages onto a DVD slide show set to music rather than printing. Welcome to our little community. See you in the gallery.

    Yes I get my layouts done here. Above they have written order prints(top of your page).They do such a great job.All you have to do is slip them into your album sleeve and they are all done.Welcome.
