Q:

I have a cd with quite a few pics on it from a 50th anniversary party, does this offer make the pics for the book into a photo album?

Brian P.  asked on  Dec 28, 2012

A:

Hi Brian! With our Simple Path, we offer to place a group of images in your photo book for you using a smart algorithm. It's a great way to put together a book quickly and we think you'll be surprised how well your images are placed throughout the book! - Robin @Shutterfly

Q:

how much does the 8X8 and 8X11 weigh? Thank you!

Ferry N.  asked on  Dec 28, 2012

A:

Hi Ferry! The weight of a book really depends on how many pages you order your book with. All books come with a minimum of 20 pages. Weight will also vary between the 8x8 and 8x11 sizes, but 20-page books will generally weigh 2 lbs. or so. - Robin @Shutterfly

Q:

Can you use the groupon to buy an additional copy of a book you made previously?

Janet F.  asked on  Dec 28, 2012

A:

Hi Janet! Absolutely! You may order any book project, previously ordered or newly built, as long as it meets the specs of the offer you choose from Groupon (8x8 or 8x11 hard cover). - Robin @Shutterfly

Q:

Can I send in a story that I wrote with some pictures to go with the story (and Shutterfly could put together)?

Marcia M.  asked on  Dec 28, 2012

A:

Hi Marcia! Great question. You may certainly construct your photo book to combine images with a story. You wouldn't be submitting any text to us like you would your images (via our photo upload tools). You would upload your images, add them to a book project, and fill in text using text boxes. If you have text already written, you can use the copy and paste function of your computer to add the text quickly to text boxes in your book. - Robin @Shutterfly

Q:

If I create a 8 x 11, book what background/theme options are included in the Groupon price?

Donyele F.  asked on  Dec 28, 2012

A:

Hi Donyele! We offer quite a wide variety of styles, backgrounds and layouts to choose from at no additional cost. A small number of styles and backgrounds are a part of our premium Storytelling collection. These can be used for an additional cost. You will find each item in our Storytelling collection marked with a blue S. - Robin @Shutterfly

Q:

I have a photo album that is already formatted on my desk top... it has 20 pages... Can you use that format already done and make a hard copy? Thanks, Donna

Donna B.  asked on  Dec 28, 2012

A:

Hi Donna! If you mean you have created a book using software on your computer, you may be able to use the content you created, but it's difficult to give advice on how to work with a 3rd party's software. If you are able to save a page you have created as a .JPG image, it could be uploaded to your Shutterfly account and used as an image covering an entire page in a photo book. One word of caution when doing that; Shutterfly's styles, designs, and layouts are proprietary and may not be printed with any service other than Shutterfly. If you have created pages with software outside of Shutterfly, there could be similar proprietary printing terms and conditions. We would ask that you investigate that and honor any rules your software has. - Robin @Shutterfly

Q:

Some books have the "Storytelling" design. Can I use the groupon on an 8x8 and just pay the upgrade fee?

Heidi S.  asked on  Dec 28, 2012

A:

Hi Heidi! Yes indeed. You may choose from our premium Storytelling styles and designs for an additional fee. - Robin @Shutterfly

Q:

For the 8.5 x 11, is the binding done with portrait orientation or is there a landscape orientation available too?

Angela S.  asked on  Dec 28, 2012

A:

Hi Angela! Our 8x11 books are bound on the 8” side and designed to be viewed left to right, just like a regular ‘ole book. Our layouts are all designed accordingly. With our custom path, the content on a page can be rotated manually to be read with the binding on top if truly desired, but it would definitely be a task to accomplish that. A book read with the binding on top is not a common request. I hope this explanation helps. - Robin @Shutterfly

Q:

Can I use this deal and upgrade to another type of cover? Say I buy the $15 (8x11 hardcover, $34.99) groupon, can I upgrade to the padded cover (8x11 padded, $39.99) and pay the $5 difference from the original prices of the two? Does it work that way?

Wendy C.  asked on  Dec 28, 2012

A:

Hi Wendy! This Groupon is specifically for our hard cover so I'm afraid padded covers will not work. - Robin @Shutterfly
