Lulu Photobook Review and Giveaway

Hands-down my mom’s favorite items to receive as a gift are those with pictures of her grandchildren on them. When I had the chance to review a photo book for Lulu.com I knew it would be the perfect gift for my mom’s birthday. I spent hours gathering pictures online of my mom with her four grandchildren and then I used Lulu’s studio to create a custom hardcover book.

Lulu’s studio was easy to use. Once I chose my book size I chose a theme for the book (which was just the background design of the pages). The pages were already designed but I loved that I could change the layout of them easily.

Once I inserted the pictures and had the layout perfectly I then added text to some of the pages. Afterwards, I previewed my book and published it.

Here are some pictures of the final product:

The book turned out beautifully! It looked professionally bound and was printed on high quality photo paper. I really loved that I could completely customize the design and layout and easily switch pictures around while I made it. Another great feature about Lulu.com is that people can create a book and then sell it on Lulu.com.

One reader will win a hardcover 9X7 photobook (20 pages)
