Long time no post though I continue to visit often (mostly to view/ comment challenge entries and browse the forums).

Have a question some of you may be able to help with:

A friend of mine runs a well-established travel magazine with associated website. She is in very early stages of considering whether/ how to offer readers the opportunity to seamlessly use their uploaded images to create/ purchase photobooks and all kinds of other items.

I have used photobox and vistaprint only and had a look around some others.

Can anyone give feedback/ opinions on any other sites you can think of which would be suitable to be used as back-end fulfillment suppliers for this kind of thing?

I haven't used Bob Books but I have seen their products and quality looks excellent.

Looking also for comments on ease of use not just for IT literates but novices too. So good templates, very straightforward interface, good instructions etc.

What about blurb?

Any others?


PS I'm talking about a UK based business so preferably looking for UK based supplier, possibly European mainland.

Photobox - truly excellent for calendars; I bought 6 different A3 wall calendars and 2 flip-over desk calendars last christmas, and they were superb. Have tried one photo book - the quality of printing was high, but I would only choose to have whole page photos if I were to do one again. Another problem with the Photobox albums is that you can add very little text, and you can't choose how to format it.
