I use and like Blurb.com for my personal "books". Blurb is template based and sometimes a bit quirky, especially with text, but I find the templates very helpful. There are many templates but, of course, still a limited number.
You can preview some of the Blurb books, here's one of mine:
I'd submitted that book and ordered one copy but was traveling and not able to see it until today. Seems like it took about a week to be printed, shipped and received. Anyway, I like my recent Blurb book.
I used the "darkroom" template (black background) and found that one page was printed with a tiny bit of white showing at one edge. Also, most of my jpgs had already been sharpened for printing using PK Sharpener but I intentionally did not sharpen a few of the later images because Blurb says that they will do the final sharpening. In the future, I'll sharpen all images with PK Sharpener as those images looked better to me.
As I suggested in another post, it's a simple and quick process to assemble a small test book to see if the Blurb product is satisfactory to you.
Plus, my Christmas shopping is done!
