Get your own picture book printed
When visiting my sister a few weeks ago, she showed me a very nice book that contained all of the pictures of a trip that she did to Portugal last year. The quality of the paper was very nice. She explained to me that she used a service called PhotoInPress.ca to do the work. Starting at $15 CAD, PhotoInPress has a web-based application that you can used to layout all of the pages of the book and specify text to be printed between the photos. The result is quite stunning and really affordable. Considering how many pages you can fit per page, it can actually come out to a similar price as individual prints.
