Default Printing 8 X 8 books

I'm going to be going to a StarGate convention in August. Although the tickets include autographs, I have to provide something to get autographed. I've been putting some layouts together and was thinking I'd like to get them printed in a book. Last year, I printed them at home myself which was ok (except for the one I left on the printer and it didn't make it to Chicago). Where would be a good place to get the book printed and about how long does it usually take. The con's in mid-August so I'd want to make sure I have it back before then.

This is an example of one of the layouts I did last year:


Thanks.

If price is most important, ArtsCow is easily the cheapest for fair quality. I print a lot of my books there because it's affordable and the quality is decent. However,you'll want to order at least 2 months in advance-- they're shipping from Hong Kong and it does take awhile (only downside).

Thanks. I think I'd emphasize quality over price.

I've printed at Shutterfly and Mixbook... Shutterfly is expensive, but reasonable if you can find enough coupons and you can stack them... I was very pleased with Mixbook... the last two vacation albums I got there... both places take around a week from print to door.

Thanks. I'd actually looked at Shutterfly. Where would I find coupons for it? Since I've never printed anywhere but at home, I've never really paid attention to stuff like that.

Sometimes you can luck out and find them on groupon - however you can only use on groupon coupon per order... but you can find other coupons googling for places like retailmenot and you can stack them on top of groupon Another website I keep my eye on is: http://www.photobookgirl.com/ She does reviews and has the "latest" deals.
