Paper Coterie is a new photo book and gift site that is celebrating its grand opening today.
To celebrate, anyone can use a $40 credit with the code OPENHOUSE. Shipping is not included and this is good through TODAY ONLY FRIDAY, MAY 6 Sunday, May 8 (they extended the promo!). If you don’t have time to make a full photo book, you could easily make a photo journal or other fun photo keepsakes that only requires a single photo.
A few weeks ago they did their beta test with some bloggers, and I received a photo book from them for free.
It is amazing! (View my book here)
Here’s what I love:
- The cover has a matte finish.
- You can basically edit anything within the provided designs – something that most photo book websites (ie Snapfish and Shutterfly) do not offer. Don’t like the one photo template? Just add more photos. Need to move the text? Easy. LOVE THIS FEATURE.
- The designs are really original.
- The site is easy to use.
- The presentation (when you receive your package) is awesome- the packaging and little extras make the company really stand out.
So I would encourage you to go check them out and use that credit. Who doesn’t like free?
I think I am going to make a Halloween photo book of Elias from this past year – photos of him in his costume, the pumpkin patch, etc. since I never did anything with them.
What are you going to make?
THURSDAY UPDATE: I just completed my order (it is 7 am CST). I started a Halloween book yesterday, which I finished this morning, and I made a birdcage journal. The total was $44 before the discount. When the discount was applied, as well as shipping, my total was $20 ($16 for shipping). I almost didn’t add the journal, but I still would have paid $9 for shipping, and I really loved the journal I made. You can order less than or exactly $40 in product, but you will still pay the $9 shipping. It looks like anything over $40 will result in $16 in shipping fees.
I recommend becoming a fan of Paper Coterie on Facebook. Their responses to site kinks have been quick and impressive.
