I've been having a small mental crisis about what to do about pictures.
Ever since Anna was born, on Tuesdays I take all the pictures off of the cameras, upload the good ones to Wal-Mart, have the prints made (it used to be cheaper to have them delivered to the store but now it's cheaper to have them mailed to the house!) and then I put them into the albums the very day they come in the mail. It's not too hard to stay caught up and it's worked well.
But now with all of the new cool photo book options and with the inevitable decay that goes along with little fingers looking at standard photo albums, I'm wondering if I need to adjust my system but every time I start to think about it I get all flustered. Which company? How often do you make a book? What is going to last long term? Which option is cost effective? How important is it to have prints quickly? How important is it to have prints that we can grab out of a book at the last minute for a school thing?
I make a blurb book of the Lobmeyer League emails that I send out every week, but I only print those books once every three years and they only have a few pictures per week.
But is that enough? Is anything else just overkill and a waste of time? Or should I keep printing more pictures than just the few that get sent out in the email? Or what if the company goes out of business and I've wasted years of work?
You see the problem.
Does anyone have any answers?
