Joseph Clemson Posted May 31, 2016 Share Posted May 31, 2016 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.
