I've been using Lightroom to create Blurb photobooks for years. Most of them are rather large (13" x 11" and 200 - 235 pages), and I always select the highest quality papers, etc. As a LR (and PS) user, I like being able to do everything pretty seamlessly and in one file management platform.

Lately, I've seen on the interwebs that there are new book makers that might be better than Blurb in terms of ultimate quality. The quality of the printed images is the single most important thing to me.

What's everyone's recent experience? I've generally been pretty happy with Blurb, but haven't looked at other options in years. Maybe I'm missing out on better options?

Blurb is probably the best "cheap" provider. Quality is "OK' for offset printing. Quality control is sometimes a problem. Of 10 books I did a few years ago, 2 were garbage and had to be re-done.

Adorama's Printique is top quality at top price. Images are printed on true photographic papers, not offset. With Printique, you need to build your book and then wait for a sale. Printique has frequent sales of 15% to 25% off, and they are short fused. Sometimes only 24 hours. Of the 7 books I did with Printique, all were perfect, no quality control problems.

Agree, re Printique.
