Brag Books ?

Has anyone ever done a brag book, specifically digital?

I did them for Andrea's birthday last year and had them printed at a local printer but they cost quite a bit of $. I was thinking of doing one this year as well for her birthday. Is there a way to have brag books printed online? Anyone have any experience with brag books?

What size are you thinking? How many pages are you going for?

Have you thought about buying your own albums to put them in (like from the dollar store)?

I believe brag books are done in 4x6, probably 12-13 pages. No, I don't really want to put them in albums, I want them to look more "finished" than that.

I'm doing a brag book for my grandma's birthday (because I can't afford to get 20, 12x12 pages printed for her, 4x6 prints are much easier). I'm just planning on getting them printed (at 15 cents each) at Costco and putting them in a book. Are you looking more for a bound book? I haven't tried ArtsCow for that, but they might be able to, or shutterfly, just some suggestions.

Yep, that is what I'm looking for Trina. Well, kind of. I really liked what I did last year, I just see so many of the brag book quick pages that I thought maybe there was a better way to print them. Just for fun, I'll show you what I did last year (the only reason I didn't like it was it cost about $80 for ten of these books).

Do you want to design it yourself or use a premade one? Everywhere I've looked seems like they have their own and you can't just use your own images.

Walmart.com Photo center has 5x7 memory books with up to 20 pages for $7 each

And then they have mini books (2x3) with up to 24 pages for $3.88 each.

If Walmart is offering these, than I bet other photo places are too.
