Just received delivery of another photo book from Apple, the fourth book I’ve sent off to them in as many years. The quality is really very good for digital print – so much better than the first one I received – back in the days when double sided printing was not an option, paper was shiny rather than glossy and print screen was poor. However there are other options now as I have recently discovered (via a Flickr sanction of course) and these can be very much cheaper…

iPhoto printing with Apple.com

1 Medium Softcover Book (size of this is not quite 8″x6″), 100 pages €40.19 + €6.00 shipping + VAT(16% ES) €7.39 = total: € 53.58

Printing with blurb.com

Square format (7″ square) 81-120 pages €16,95 + Swiss Post Economy (nontrackable option) €5,66 + VAT (16% ES) = total € 26.23. Add a euro and shave a couple of days off the shipping time.

Blimey. I’m going to try the Blurb folks…
