A&I Books - New York City: $20 for $60 Worth of Custom Photo Books from A&I Books

Jump to: Photo Books vs. Other Books

Get your digital photos out of their hard-drive nooks with today's Groupon to A&I Books, recently featured by Hewlett-Packard as a way to get high-quality photography books. For $20, you get $60 worth of custom-designed photo books that are perfect to display the photos you took of the Ansel Adams exhibit. Make a handful of small books to promote your art, photography, or theater production, to commemorate your dog with his own coffee-table tome, or to give your significant other, mother, or mailman a sweet gift for the holidays. This Groupon can't be used toward shipping cost; shipping for most orders is $15, but depends on quantity and speed.

A&I Books makes making your own photo book easier than sticking photos into slipcovers for a photo album, and the results are brilliant and professional. After receiving your Groupon, go to A&I Books to download its free, intuitive software directly onto your hard drive or central nervous system. (Feel free to use InDesign or Photoshop instead.) Drag and drop your digital photos into the program's templates, and use the ID# on your Groupon to activate your credit at checkout. Your custom-designed book will be printed in-house at A&I on high-quality paper with superior image saturation and color density, even more beautiful than your promotional calendar from the King Kong remake. The finished product will be delivered to your home, or your office in the Dojo District if you prefer. Books are available in hard and soft cover. Get a few small 4x4 and 5x5 books ($14 for soft cover with 40 pages, $24 for hard cover) or an 8.5x11 hard cover with 60 pages ($54). If you have a bigger project in mind, you can use your Groupon toward the cost and pay the remaining balance.

Perfectly bound family photos on high-quality paper make thoughtful holiday gifts for anyone, especially people who prefer photo books to word books. If you don't own photos, make new memories by getting together with friends for a photo shoot and preserving them on bound pages. Or you can gain exposure for your artistic talents with a perfect portfolio option.

Photo Books vs. Other Books

As new and exciting forms of media become more common, some nuances might be lost: “Is my modem the same as my router?”, “Why can’t you put frosting on a steak?”, and perhaps most crucially, “Are photo books the same as other books?” Utilize this handy cheat sheet to let you know whether you’re dealing with a photo book or an imposter:

Photo Books tell the story of your grandmother’s 100th birthday in a lovely bound volume you can send to her as a belated gift. Picture Books tell the story of anthropomorphic trains overcoming minor obstacles or dinosaurs getting potty-trained.

Photo Books record the travels of your college-reunion canoeing trip in a souvenir format you can customize and share. Graphic Novels tell the autobiographical story of a fine arts grad student’s trip to Israel to reconnect with his estranged father, or depending on your strictness of definition, what Batman is up to.

Photo Books illustrate the life-journey of two newlyweds, from cutting the cake at their wedding to the wobbly first steps of their 11-month-old son, Oliver. Facebook illustrates that one of your former co-workers identifies with the Grumpy Care Bear and makes his own bow and arrows.

Better than any of the books I have created with other companies. Loved it.
Debbie H. · February 24, 2014
I love the book I made, but I feel their pricing is too expensive for me to keep buying books on a regular basis since I can get more economical pricing elsewhere , but I have always recommended people to check them out. I like the fully customizable features and the book jacket. It's so beautiful. I love showing it off to my friends.
