Flickr introduces Photo Books, get your images into a hardcover for $35
Custom-made photo books have been in existence since a long time and there are plenty of online companies which offer users a wide range of solution to get the photos they like printed in different forms.
Flickr has now introduced its new Flicker Photo Books service of its US-based users and it will soon be followed by its international roll-out. This Yahoo-owned photo site has been working with its partner Snapfish to offer a number of printing services, including the new Photo Books.
The company introduced the new service through a blog post, and Rajiv Vaidyanathan outlined the basics of the new web-based offering, stressing on its ease-of-use and the quality of the final product.
One can start building a book by hovering over on of your photo sets and then clicking on the book icon. Flickr will take care of the rest by lying out the images with its ‘intelligent’ tools, and one will also have total control over the design, if you want to.
The basic books will come with 20 pages of premium white proPhoto paper with a luster finish and your chosen photos will be “wrapped in a sleek, photo wrap high-gloss hardcover complete with a matching dust jacket. No cramped formats, no awkward descriptions, no spoiled memories,” Vaidyanathan writes.
The basic hardcover book has dimensions of 11 x 8.5 inches, with up to 20 pages and costs $35, for every additional page you have to add an extra $0.05 each. Users can print a maximum of up to 240 pages in a single book.
