What You'll Get
Words, often criticized for being too concrete, have been slowly falling out of favor, with authors preferring to tell their tales via pop-ups, photographs, and interpretive ketchup blobs. Share your photographic memories with today’s deal: for $10, you get one 20-page 8”x8” hardcover photo book (a $29.99 list-price value) from Shutterfly. This Groupon cannot be used toward tax or shipping and handling, which starts at $7.99; it expires on May 18, 2011, and is limited to one per person.
Photo books contain 20 pages or more (up to 101 pages available for an extra charge) of photographically preserved time, printed on high-quality photo paper and professionally bound in a sturdy hardcover fold. Photo books are constructed online using the simple process of Shutterfly’s Storyboard tool—choose your style, edit your pages, customize your cover, and preview your finished book. During the style stage, choose from multiple backgrounds, such as fibrous, flaxen wheat, to vividly complement the portraits in the foreground. The subsequent step provides an opportunity to easily edit photos and add short captions, such as “Billy, Age 2,” or “The Velociraptor That Ate My Top Hat.” Depending on the chosen layout, up to sixteen photos can fit on some pages, and if 20 pages do not provide enough real estate, additional pages can be added for $1 each. It can take five minutes to create a book; see how easy it is here.
The keepsake compilations are built to last, ensuring their presence will spruce up any coffee table, personal library, or stack of books for a long time to come. Whether the book is a gift for yourself or someone else, it will spellbind all viewers, who will wonder how to navigate its analog pages without a keyboard and mouse. In addition to producing tangible mementos, Shutterfly allows users to store and share any photos in online albums, which can be digitally passed onto friends, family, and Abe Vigoda.
