Recession Mama Michele Ashamalla: I have a digital camera and can manage to upload my photos to my computer. Then, most of the time, there they sit.

Hot Prints

Occasionally, my husband has a burst of energy and orders a bunch of prints. I have been meaning to make a foray into the world of photobooks, but it seems kind of involved. Recently, though, a friend turned me on to HotPrints.com, where I can try out photobooks with a free one every month. No strings attached -- they don't even ask for your credit card information.

The books are 16 pages, printed on glossy paper. They are stapled, not bound, and in the center is a removable four-page ad section, which is why the company can give them away. You can upload directly from Facebook, but I hear that the pictures that come from Facebook aren't that sharp, so I plan to just go off my hard drive. The ads don't bother me, since reviews say the insert is easy to remove. People say the quality is good, but not as good as printing at a lab.

I think this may be a great way to get me on track -- 16 pages should be enough to chronicle an average month. It's a great solution for the previous month's pictures. And I'll worry about catching up later ....

I’ve been using the website for a few months now and let me just say, I agree with your thinking: free? yes, please! I’ve made a photobook of my daughter’s birthday, one of her in various dress-up clothes, and one of all my kids for my mother-in-law for mother’s day. You’ve heard right: the quality is not as good as say, Kodak Photobooks, but for the price ($0!!!), it’s totally worth it!! And, the website is super easy to use.
