    and I believe there is no minimum order for fotohub...can even just produce one

    the finished book is in a thick medium that is durable (don't know about colour durablility, but physically is hard)...and with matt or gloss finish...

    you can try Tomy Print @ Funan Level 2. I printed a softcover 8" x 12" (80 pages) there. Good quality and price $52 only. Can do the photo arrangement at the shop there.

    I don't think Riceball is doing it anymore.
    The last time I asked Zhong Lin, he said that he is not doing coffeetable book anymore.

    I just did a self made wedding photobook and my wedding guests were impressed by the print quality you can give them a try

    I just collected my photobooks from printworks. Good quality prints even for shots I took from my 5 megapixel P&S camera. Very reasonable prices too and book was ready in 1 week.

    cheapest option is to buy the book template from canon. its a set of photo papers for inkjet with a binder so u can bind the pages into a book.
    i think the set is ~ $20 not sure.

    Hi tchuanye,

    Thanks for recommending us. Just a question:

    Since it's an online thingy and it involves high res images, do you make sure you take care of the copyright issues of your pics, as in preventing them from being leeched. Or just forget it, dun worry and just send images to them?

    I just forget it and send images to them. Seems they are quite ok...and I think its in the photobook format already, not as individual pics being uploaded.
