Lulu print on demand publishing makes it easy and affordable to publish and sell your custom photo book. Want to get it done quickly and easily? Lulu Studio makes it easy to use your pictures from Flickr, Facebook, Photobucket, SmugMug, or just upload them from your computer.

Photo books come in either hardcover or paperback, your choice. There are several sizes to choose from. I chose to get the 5.25 x 3.5 compact set of three. These are perfect for Grandma’s purse!! She will love these cute little books! They are very affordable. You can get a 8×11 letter sized paperback book with 20 pages for only $15.95 for 20 pages!!! Hardcover is only $10 more.
Lulu is a very unique place to create your photo book! My wife loves to take photos. Every special event or vacation that we have my wife creates a photo book. For families like mine, Lulu is great because we
have two sets of parents as does my wife so if we bought everyone a book we would go broke! With Lulu you just create and publish your photo book and your family members can buy their own book! This way parents get the photos of their precious grandchildren without breaking your bank… brilliant!
- Lulu is very affordable. Prices start as low as $9.99
- Lulu is a publishing company so your friends and family can buy your photo books as well
- The quality is wonderful. My mini books turned out great!
- Lulu has many other options for your photos like cookbooks, portfolios (my wife wants to do this because of her love for photography) and calendars which also make great gifts.
- The help center is a bit confusing. The only help I could find was from Lulu members. It would be nice if a Lulu representative could answer questions. My question was: Can family members change the size of a photo book that you have published? I still don’t know the answer.
- While the templates seem plentiful the page layouts are lacking in my opinion. I wish there would have been more choices.
I like Lulu. It is really a great place to turn your photos into lasting memories.
