    I was at a photo expo today and saw some professional photo books at a booth and they looked amazing. They were hardcover and had very stiff pages. The company on the back was "bind design". I can't seem to find a website for them and they exactly the type of books I want to create.

    What print service do you use for your books? Thanks in advance! :D

    Very likely a self-published book. Find any good printer service and tell them what you want. Then be prepared to pay.

    Most places that print photographs have them in one quality level or another.

    You can look here.

    Or

    I have used Mpix and Millers before.

    Um thanks for the great help... I did google it and no real life experiences or recomendations were listed. Funny huh? All the websites I found did not give a clear page type ie paper or more cardboard like.

    I've heard good things about Lulu. I've ordered a personal photobook (Soft cover) from qoop before.

    There are many, many companies that will create custom albums & photo books for you. Many of them will only sell to professionals though...you actually have to apply to be a customer.

    AsukaBook USA - Custom Coffee Table Quality Art Books
    Art Leather - Home
    Bon Match Albums - Buy Custom Photo Albums - Self Mount and Flush Mount Albums
    Collages.net - Total Workflow and Printing Solution
    Finao Online - Home
    Professional Photography Studio Software
    Graphistudio - Home
    TAP: Official Photo Packaging Website

    You might also check out some local professional labs and see what they offer.

    Wow, thanks Big Mike! That will give me a lot to look through!

    One more question...Is there a name for this type of book? Is it a flush mount album?
