hello,

1st you have to compose 1st  all the data, pictures, page sizes, information etc.

2nd layout at your favorite softwares ((photoshops, adobe (illustrator, indesign etc.), coreldraw))

lastly, if you intended to print in the future theres lot of developing site here in manila to help you. not to mention the names.

:)

thanks

Just bring soft copies of your pictures to any picturebooks outlet. They make both hardbound and paper cover picturebooks in a variety of sizes. Digiprint also makes picture books.

my mom had her coffee table book done at digiprint. Very nice quality and the pictures came out clear even if she was only using a 7mp p&s cam. I am planning to create myself one but the pictures are not enough yet for printing.
put something smart or silly here...

usually starts at 2k at fans digital.  the 6x6 is at 2k if i'm not mistaken. i had a 10x10 book printed and it cost me 4.5k.  not sure lang of the prices in between.  call them, 722-6878.

or if you like, you can try shutterfly.com too :)

Question? If the coffee table book is going to be used for souvenir program will the cost go down? Meaning if we're going to order for about 20 to 30 or even 40 prints mas mura po kaya to? We're going to have our Bonsai Exhibit and one of the concerns is to have a book of all the participating bonsai plants.TIA.

good day to all!

i'm planning to create one as a wedding/birthday gift (scanned printed photos and some digital ones). i hope anyone will share some photos of their coffe table book with front cover and some layouts so that i can have an idea on how it looks like.

thank you.  :)
