I'm curious what on-demand book printing services you have used and what your thoughts are on the product you received. I have used Blurb and was happy with the result. Then I recently made a book using Apple Aperture and had it printed through Apple. It made my feelings about Blurb go down a notch as the Apple product was superior in construction, paper quality and color fidelity. By comparison my Blurb books now look a bit faded, the images are not as crisp, and the paper weight is not as heavy as that of the Apple product. In addition, the Apple book had both a printed dust jacket and printed hard cover. With the Blurb products I purchased I had to choose either dust jacket or hard cover. Blurb's offerings may have changed since I used them a few years ago, but I was really impressed with the product Apple sent me. Another thing I liked about Apple's book product was that I didn't have to pay a surcharge to remove an Apple logo on the book. Blurb charges you a surcharge to remove their logo and name.
Here is the cover of the book I made with Apple's book service:
So .. what kind of books have you created, what book printing services have you used, and what was your opinion of the product you received versus what you expected.
I should add that my Apple book is a hardcover 13x10 inch book with about 80 sides (40 pages), it cost about $150 with delivery, and it took about a week from order to delivery. I could not print and sell these at this price, but it certainly makes an impressive coffee table book for my house.
