Blurb Imagewrap photo book review

blurb_logo_smallI previous mentioned the Blurb photo book I had ordered with the intention of updating that post with my thoughts when it arrived. Now that it’s here there’s quite a bit to say so those thoughts are now presented as this new post. There are also plenty of photo’s of the book, shared for anyone trying to decide whether to go ahead and place an order.

Delivery took seven days from placing the order, and I received an email the day before notifying me of dispatch with UPS. The book came from the Netherlands to the UK so to me this was very good since Blurb claim 5-6 business days to make the book and 1-15 to deliver dependant on your shipping choice. I had specified priority 2-4 day shipping at £10.37, in effect I got the 1-2 day £21.37 express option.

I’m off to San Francisco and Las Vegas for two weeks, leaving in about an hour. The San Francisco hotel has free internet access throughout the building so I might do some posts from there, but the Treasure Island in Vegas want $15 a day for internet access so I can’t see that being used much. Sounds like a mission: find cheap or free WiFi in Vegas.
