Picaboo Classic baby photo bookPicaboo is offering our readers a giveaway of a 20-page Classic photo book!

Picaboo offers customized photo books, cards, and calendars, any of which would be perfect for holiday gifts and treasured keepsakes! One lucky winner will receive a coupon for a free 20-page Classic photo book, valued at up to $39.99.

Please note that this giveaway prize coupon does NOT include shipping costs, which allows us to open this giveaway internationally. Shipping from Picaboo starts at $7.99 for ground shipping to the continental United States. The winner is responsible for verifying and paying shipping and any surcharges to the applicable destination.

This coupon covers one of these different Classic photo book styles:

  • Classic Linen books feature a traditional photo book design with a die-cut window on the front cover, allowing your image and caption from the first page to show through the cover when the book is closed.

  • Classic Custom hardcover books add a “wow” factor and a professional touch to your book with a completely customized cover that really makes an impact. Create a one-of-a-kind cover featuring the layout, background, images, and text of your choice on the front cover, back cover and spine.

  • Classic Leather books have a rich, smooth finish and formal, timeless design that speaks to their lasting quality. These covers are easier to care for than the Classic Linen, which can show fingerprints and other markings more easily.

  • Croc-embossed leather books feature our classic design and durable bonded leather with a stylish embossed finish. Less formal and more “fun”, croc-embossed leather can jazz up any photo book. (No – it’s not real crocodile skin! The croc design is embossed on Picaboo’s standard Classic bonded leather.)

Creating photo books with Picaboo is easy and fun. Photo books can be fully customized by dragging-and-dropping photos and captions anywhere on your pages, and Picaboo’s easy software allows you creative control so you can make each special page look just the way you want it to.

  • This coupon is good for one 20-page Classic photo book in any style.
  • It does NOT cover additional pages over 20.
  • It does NOT cover applicable shipping costs.
  • The coupon will expire on December 30, 2010.
  • The ground shipping cutoff for the continental United States (to have your book by Christmas) is Tuesday, December 14.

Picaboo Classic photo book open pages spreadI (Lauren) haven’t used Picaboo’s software or printing yet, but Sam and I have made photo books for several years now from a couple companies. They’re a perfect way to organize and show off your favorite photos and preserve them professionally for generations to come. This year, as in a past Christmas, we’ve put together a charming collection of photos of our adorable Mikko and ordered several copies: one to keep, and one each for the grandparents and a doting aunt. Back when we were the doting aunt and uncle, we put together a photo book of our niece’s first two years to give to her parents and grandparents. We also arranged our favorite artsy shots of Seattle, for our own enjoyment and to display for visitors. Every photo book has been a huge hit!

If you’re like me and love the idea of scrapbooking but lack the follow-through, making a digital scrapbook is the perfect way to keep layout and organization easy and hassle-free. No trimming photos by hand or hunting for the glue stick — just drag and drop, and you’re done! You can even customize with captions and text.

Picaboo Classic Hardcover photo bookSome great ideas for photo books include a petite brag book for the grandparents to carry around, a coffee table book of baby’s first year, an illustrated retelling of your birth story, a beautifully arranged album of wedding photos, a memento of a recent trip or family reunion, a collection of pictures that speak to you about a particular time or subject, a portfolio of your favorite photographs, a gift for a dear couple on a special anniversary, a memorial to a departed loved one, a preservation of family heritage, or whatever else you can think of to commemorate!

The reason we’re ending this giveaway so very soon is that it does take some effort to organize and edit your photos, learn the Picaboo software, and arrange everything to your liking before sending it to be published. Since the ground shipping cutoff (for holiday delivery to the continental U.S.) is next Tuesday, Dec. 14, we’re ending the giveaway this Friday night, Dec. 10, to give the winner plenty of time to craft a masterpiece over the weekend!
