Sup peeps. I'm sure most of you have a lot of work now that wedding season is coming to a close. I know that's the case with me. So much so, I'm considering not focusing on album designs at all, and just focus on everything else. Just wanted to know if any of you are outsourcing your album design, and if so, what's a good, reliable company to use. If you don't want to disclose it on the forums, feel free to pm me.

I, too, would be curious to know what others experiences with this has been.

I tried Zookie Pro (design service at Zookbinders) in the first month or so that they were doing design, and found their work to be pretty good, especially for a service in such an early stage. I gave them an image set with about 20% more images than I wanted them to use, and gave them permission to decide which ones to use, and they made good choices; I approved the first design with no changes.

My design approach is different now (simpler), so I'm not sure I'll outsource album design again, but would consider using them again if I needed design. Layout isn't what I want to spend my time doing, and album design (i.e., the layout of the album) isn't something I emphasize; there's not a lot of juice to squeeze from that orange -- so I don't need to control it obsessively.

I may have mentioned this before on the forum, I am open to doing album design for other photographers, can cater to your style preferences, etc. I do not use templates and create every album from scratch so each one is unique. Anyway, I just thought I would throw that out there in case anyone wants to contact me directly.

Find a stay at home mom with a Macbook and lap downtime. Best option in my opinion. They'll fine tune their approach JUST for you. A large company won't do that as well. Plus it keeps one more working mother off the pole. Have a heart guys.

It's true, there are stay at home moms who will edit and design albums for very reasonable rates. Check your local facebook group and ask around, shouldn't be too hard to find one...

I do album design. :3

Here you go... http://thealbumdesign.com/

I worked with them this year and they are great! We had to go through 3 album revisions, and they were easy to work with & are very responsive.

If anyone decides to try them out, then PLEASE let them know that I referred you! They have a great referral program!

I've been using Red Boot Design for years, they are great. They are owned by Kubota Image Tools I think. Highly recommended:
