    What resource are you using to print pages?

    I thought it was here at DD I learned about a new company (probably in March) that did a super quality job printing scrapbook pages to make albums. I created a digital 8x8 album of 50 pages (viewed it on DVD for the celebration and they watch the slides in a digi frame) for my parents 50th anniversary in April, and now would like to put it in book form for Xmas.

    I know it was not Shutterfly, although not opposed to any site that you all have had great service and quality with. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Sorry I have no suggestions - I have only used Shutterfly & loved the result.

    I have used MPIX.com for printing some pages and had good results. I must admit though it has been awhile since I'm now addicted to Shutterfly books!

    It's possible that it was White House Custom Colour. (whcc.com)

    They're a bit pricier than Shutterfly though.

    Heritage Makers does an awesome job. The print quality on the paper is much the same as Shutterfly (had the same book printed at both) They are pricier though, and I have been happy with Shutterfly. One significant difference is the pages are sewn in, not glued.
    I've heard good things about vivio.com too. Have not printed there myself yet.

    I have also been very happy with Heritage Makers. The quality of the books is top notch, and on the couple of rare occasions that there has been a problem, their customer service was excellent. They reprinted a book immediately and sent it out to me.

    well I use Blurb. I do love shutterfly, but the postage to here is often a lot {I'm in England - but guess my name told you that!!!} so I make most of my stuff thro Blurb. I am addicted to their 7x7 size!

    I've used Shutterfly a lot, but right now you can get a basic standard matte print for 99 cents, which are regularly $1.99 at scrapbooksplease.com. Obviously there are higher quality choices for more money, but I just get the standard matte.

    I am also in the UK and am looking for a good printer. Do you have an link for Blurb's site? Also are there any other UK printers you would recommend?

    Thanks!
