Saving Family Memories- Make My Book Service


As a busy mom and teacher, finding time to sort through ALL of the photos I took on our adventures the past year is near impossible.  Improbable for sure.  And making sure that I have a printed version of some of my FAVORITE family photos is incredibly important to me.  Thankfully there is a new service by Shutterfly that helps out people like me.  Can’t wait to share this fabulous new service… read on to find out more!


Shutterfly has created a Make My Book Service.  You simply pick out and upload your photos from your computer or social sites and BOOM you are done.  Sure you pick out the color of your book and how embellished it was… but after uploading all of my favorite photos from this past year- they uploaded FAST- I was ordering in a matter of minutes.  Four to be exact.




How It Works:
1. Choose what you want: Select a book size and style. Upload your photos or entire albums from your desktop, phone, tablet, or Shutterfly account. We’ll design your book. We can even curate your best photos for you. P.S. It’s free to get started!

2. Receive your book: In as little as 3 business days, we’ll add your custom designed photo book to your account and email you to let you know it’s ready in your Shutterfly account.

3. View and order your book: Order your book as is or personalize it with your own finishing touches. The one-time $9.99 service fee is applied only once you order your finished book. To view your book or to make any edits, please use your desktop computer.

It’s as easy as that. You hardly need to invest any time (other than supplying your photos) and you only pay the design fee if you order the book.



So there you have it folks.  In less than five minutes (after I batch uploaded my photos) I was on my way to adding another fabulous Shutterfly Book to our running collection.  I love the quality that Shutterfly provides with their products and use them every year for holiday cards.



What are you waiting for?  You need to check out this service STAT.  Holiday Season is upon us and what better way than to have the Make My Book Service help in securing gifts for the grandparents?  I think so.

What do you do to keep the memories?
