Photobooks and Calendars

I am thinking of giving my mum a photbook of pictures of my girls for christmas, but i hear so many conflicting reports of who to use.

Can anyone recommend a good source for Calendars and Photobooks?

Thanks

Chris

Chris,

I use Snappy Snaps. They seem to come up with better colours than Jessops (too red) and Snapfish (under-exposed).

I used photobox for the one time I made a book and was very impressed.

I've used Jessops twice now and been quite impressed - colours seem fine to me.

Hey Chris

I know some people don't recommend them, but to be honest, I have had excellent quality and service from Photobox. I recently put together a photobook of my bird shots as a present for my Sister in Law in the USA, and I was delighted with the quality of the book.

I second that. I have used them for a couple of years, and am extremely happy with results. Prices are fair, and quality extremely good if images are properly handled before they're sent for publishing.
Have a look at my books at http://www.blurb.com/user/geirsan, you'll see what I mean by watching the previews.
