My daughter is 21 in about ten days time. With my usual planning and foresight I've just now decided it would be nice to give her a photobook of family photos spanning her 21 years (approx one page per year). I don't think I can get the images chosen, scanned and organised in time to use a commercial printer. Added to which, as an old-fashioned Lancashire lad, I will never buy anything if I can make it myself. I don't print many images myself, so I'm limited to an ageing HP Photosmart C7180. I could buy some A4 double-sided inkjet paper and layout the pages myself. The spring loaded self-clamp photobook binders sold by Marrutt http://www.marrutt.com/pro-photobooks.html look useful for a one-off item which doesn't need to be ultra posh. I'm not looking for anything swish or archival standard, just a little fun item for her to keep. My questions: Has anybody any experience of this kind of binder or a similar alternative? If you were doing this kind of project, what kind and weight of paper would you go for - glossy, matte, silk? Any comments on my forward planning and tightness of wallet would not be undeserved, but probably superfluous as I'm only too well aware of both traits.
