There are many ways, maybe perhaps I can share some I've seen and done for myself.

- A4 prints of montages of the shots taken
- Small book binds of the prints with some captions/inspiration words on the sides/top/bottom
- Slot in album
- Bookbinders + photocorners for easy carrying & changing of shots for view
- 8R prints + mount on cardboards

I find that self designed montages + binding would do good and you can easily replace or add new pages when you need to. Or alternatively you can consider the albums GloryWorkz has to provide :)

:)

Just print it in S8R and buy those slot-in clearholder folders to put them in. :)
Those clearholder plastic tend to be not clear. I won't recommend that.
Anyway, my recommendation is to print the photos in S*R in glossy and then use double-sided tapes or photo corners to paste the photos onto sheets of black thick papers. Then bind the sheets together.

Your idea is better. Agree with you that the clearholder plastic are usually not clear. Photos tend to look dull when viewed through them.

There are still 3R, 4R, 5R, etc. ;)

Just tell them "Super Eight R", the labs will know. :)

Glad to share. Glossy print, don't put clear plastic over it, becos the glossy will stick to the plastic sheet over time. To protect the photos, I recommend cold lamination. :)
