    TripleD. I guessed you should be having hundreds of photos ba. Best quality. Not going to be expensive also.

    BTW, TripleD is at Burlington Square.

    only +-100 photos?
    just go for best quality printing, will not cost more than $15~$25 difference from cheap labs.

    glossy prints look sharper and color more vivid, but may have problems if you using some slot in pocket albums which the prints may stick to the plastic pockets after some time.

    Maybe ard there.
    Not too sure either.
    Cos I'm getting those big big album with the plastic cover which is whole piece.
    Don't know what is that kind of album call leh..

    Anyway, I thinking of placing 4 - 5 photos per page.
    Gonna fill up the whole album.

    So glossy is a better choice?

    I Personally would not go for those Big album with plasic cover. Unless you like to take your time to make a collage.

    For me, I preferred Matt. For TripleD, juz say you are from ClubSNAP. shouldn't cos you more then 25 cents. see whether can you get 20 cents and below ba. go and bargain a bit.

    you can try the scrapbook album idea, if you want to include some postcards, flyers, entrance tickets, odd size prints in the album.

    for me, I would go for a photobook or coffee table album for a holiday photos.

    spend so much money for a trip, a 4R album will not make a cut.

    Saw it from http://www.myimagestory.com.sg/Products.aspx
    Is Coffee table photobook same as photobook and coffee table album?

    For Fotohub, there're not product samples. I'm not sure what it it.
    How's the quality of the pictures?

    Anyway, which is better? Fotohub or my imagestory?

    Hey Paranoia

    we are avid travellers too and we always go to Simon at Grace Digital Lab to develop our photos.
    Go to this thread to find out his pricing and opening hours.

    http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthrea...ight=grace+lab Good service, great quality.
