The best custom photo books for Father's Day

These services will let you put together a custom photo book for Father's Day

  • If you're stuck for a present to get your dad this Father's Day — he's already got socks and ties and power tools to last a lifetime — why not consider a photo book? You can easily create great looking photo books using free software, and printing and delivery times are surprisingly quick. Here's a list of the top photo book printing services in Australia.

  • [[xref:|Target]]

    That's right — your neighbourhood Target store is able to organise photo book printing. You can download free software (it's also available in store) to create a book, and then choose from a range of sizes and options for your final product. You can arrange to have the book sent to your local Target store, or delivered directly to your house.
  • [[xref:|Snapfish]]

    Instead of requiring a software download, Snapfish lets you upload your photos to its Web servers and do everything within your browser window. This is a great service to use if you also want prints, postcards or calendars to bundle with the photo book.

    Xbook prints hardcover photo books in five sizes, with three sizes also available for spiral- and staple-bound soft covers. You can get a discount for ordering multiple books, and shipping costs are low.
