MyPublisher Closing Down – Your Questions Answered and a Farewell Giveaway

Deals-Banner-PBG3

____________________________________________________________

Earlier this week MyPublisher sent an email to its registered users announcing the company would be closing on May 8, 2017.  Just as soon as the email hit users’ inboxes, I was getting e-mails and Facebook messages expressing disappointment as well as a flurry of questions about what’s next? Messages have continued to come in steadily as the days have passed and I realized if I wrote a post, it would be easier to point folks to this instead of responding to each person individually.

It’s no surprise that this is big news in Photobookland – MyPublisher has been around for 23 years and they’ve built up a loyal following.  The last event that worried some MyPublisher customers was Shutterfly’s buyout of MyPublisher about three years ago. Shutterfly kept the company going pretty much business as usual these last few years, but I suppose at some point they made a business decision to discontinue MyPublisher as a separate “sister company” and close it altogether. Some photo book features we’ve come to associate with MyPublisher have been brought over to Shutterfly, but not all. More on that below…

MyPublisher was actually the first photo book company I tried about a decade ago and it’s still one of my favorites today. I’m pretty bummed about the closure. My mom is a die-hard MyPublisher fan and she’s urging me to make her one last photo book of her recent vacation. Here’s a shot of the last one I made for her with MyPublisher for my folks’ vacation Down Under…

Good news is you still have time to start up a new project, finish up current ones or reorder previous books through May 8th, but other deadlines as you can see below are considerably sooner.

Some initial notes and tips about the closure:

  • Shutterfly and MyPublisher run on two completely different platforms. Therefore your existing projects will not be moved over to Shutterfly and you will have no access to your old books after May 8.
  • Shutterfly books are built using online software versus MyPublisher which utilizes downloaded software, so you’ll have to be connected to the Internet when working on Shutterfly.
  • You can still reorder old projects or make new books before May 8.
  • MyPublisher states you can get a free digital version of your saved projects if you contact customer service before May 8. Please note, you do not need to call the company. You can log into your account and go to “My Projects”. If you hover over your book image you’ll see an option to “Download”. If you click on it, a PDF of your entire book will download automatically to your computer. This would be the same PDF if you were to call, so no need to call, it’s on the site already.
  • This PDF file is for archival purposes only. It is not of sufficient resolution to print but it’s nice to have a digital copy. You can share it with friends or family.
  • Note that I was not able to download a digital copy of my books made in 2007. 2009 to present, downloaded just fine. I think a software upgrade may have affected the older books.

The following are some questions that were sent to me as well as a few of my own. I asked my MyPublisher contact to help address some questions, and for some, I added further details that I thought would be helfpul. These are paraphrased for clarity. A lot of these questions deal with the similarities or differences between MyPublisher and Shutterfly as the company is encouraging users to give Shutterfly a try.

Q: Is super gloss paper available at Shutterfly?

A: Shutterfly does have a glossy paper option. The process is different from MyPublisher’s but the overall look is the same. The glossy paper however is not available in either of Shutterfly’s layflat books.

Q: Is the upgraded premium 170# paper available at Shutterfly?

A: No, Shutterfly does not have the deluxe paper option but the standard papers are the same.

Q: Is MyPublisher’s lay flat binding available at Shutterfly?

A: Yes, the hinged lay flat binding from MyPublisher is available at Shutterfly. It’s called “Standard Layflat”. (It’s a $25.00 upgrade for an 8 x 11 size and $15.00 upgrade for an 8 x 8.) Shutterfly also has a seamless lay flat which is called “Deluxe lay flat” which is considerably more. ($50.00 for 8 x 11 and $40 for an 8 x 8). Note that these charges are irrespective of the number of pages you have, it’s a flat fee versus a per page fee.

Shutterfly’s Deluxe lay flat pages do not have a gutter.

MyPublisher’s hinged lay flat has a small gap.

Here’s a page I found in Shutterfly’s help center with regard to paper types and binding. You can also click on the image or link to go to that page if you find it hard to read below.

Q: Does Shutterfly offer MyPublisher’s 15 x 11.5″ Deluxe size?

A: No, the closest size would be 14 x 11. Also the standard size landscape at Shutterfly is 8 x 11 (versus the unique and slightly larger size of 8.75 x 11.25). Shutterfly additionally offers square books which I know a lot of MyPublisher users were hoping MyPublisher would add to their product line. MyPublisher’s photo book sizes were unique and not offered elsewhere. You’ll be able to find something close in size but not exactly the same.

Q: The Free Extra pages deal is my favorite deal. Is that going to carry over to Shutterfly?

A: I have not personally seen the free extra pages deal over at Shutterfly. Shutterfly usually offers 30 to 50% off hardcover books at various times of the year. I have seen Picaboo and Winkflash offer free extra pages before.

Q: Which company should I use now that MyPublisher is closing?

A: This is a hard one to answer as it depends somewhat on what it is you like about MyPublisher and what you rank as an important consideration (for example the user interface and software might be very important to you. Some folks write me saying they absolutely need to make their photo books with downloaded software and will not consider an online only company.) Since I use my own software and upload finished layouts, software is less of a consideration for me. As for end product, MyPublisher printed books are hard to beat and hard to find an equivalent for elsewhere. What impresses me most about MyPublisher photo books are how tight, neat and solid the construction of the books are, particularly in the binding. It feels like a high quality book. The endsheets and the translucent interior cover page adds a professional touch to the book and gives it a finished appearance. Clarity and color reproduction are also consistently accurate. The heavier premium paper is always an upgrade I am willing to pay for and at only $3.99 it’s a bargain. For me, the heavier than standard paper is a happy medium. It’s thicker than a standard weight paper (typically 100#) but not as heavy feeling as a book printed on photo paper (such as the Deluxe layflat upgrade offered by Shutterfly).

As for price, many folks would wait for the popular free extra pages deal to max out their books at 100 pages for only $35.00. Adding the lay flat upgrade would only bring the book to $60.00 – an excellent price for a 100-page lay flat photo book.

As you probably know I make photo books ALL THE TIME. It’s going to take me some time to think about where I will print the photo books that I used to print at MyPublisher. That said, I use different companies for different projects and subject matter and of course a lot depends on the budget I’m planning to spend. MyPublisher was my go to for vacation photo books, but I wouldn’t use them for photo books I would be allowing my young kids to handle (for that I would use a sturdier paper such as the Deluxe layflat upgrade from Shutterfly or the similar paper offered by AdoramaPix or Photobook America layflat.) I’m definitely going to get to work and do some investigating of my own, try more new companies that are popping up every day, and I’ll be happy to share with you what I find out.

    If I won, I’d use the gc towards my 2016 album that I really need to get a start on – I always wait until the whole year is over, though that’s really a bad habit! I always order two copies so that each of my kids can have one in the future. I’ve liked your FB page and MyPublisher’s as Laura Morrison.

    If I win I’d probably update the heritage book of my dad’s side of the family for myself. Each time we add another baby or somebody gets married I update the book but have never purchased it for myself although several nephews and my sisters have purchased the newer copies. I still have the original from 10 years ago and have just been writing in the new information. A printed copy would look much nicer.

    I have used Mypublisher to make all my familes photobooks. I am so disappointed to hear of them closing. If I won I would make my last and final photobook of my son’s first Birthday Party. His birthday is April 10th and a photographer is coming to take all the photos of the party and I should have time to get my photos back and make my books.

    If I’ll win this contest, I’ll make a compilation of my kid’s artworks since they were a baby. They are both 5 and 2 now and they are both my little Picasso’s. 🙂

    The required question is easy! I was working on a vacation album that I planned to submit to MyPublisher when I got the notice they are closing. It is a 100 page book of my recent trip to Cambodia and Vietnam! I was on page 45 when my hard drive failed, so right now my hard drive is at the computer repair place. Wish my luck. I do my own pages in Photoshop and have about 90 hours in that work.

    My Publisher is absolutely my favorite company for photo books… I have already purchased some vouchers to use before they close, but would love to win another one so I can print all my grandparents photos that I scanned.

    One of the photobook companies I often use is Picaboo because I like the way you can order a voucher for future books. Sometimes I miss out on specials because I don’t have everything ready to go when I see a special.

    I am so sad to hear this about MyPublisher. I’ve printed so many books with them. If I won, I would use the money toward either my South Africa vacation book or my Honeymoon book. Like you, I’ve used MyPublisher for many of my vacation books. The free extra pages is a great deal for a great book.

    Tried to write a review of My Publisher:
    I have used My Publisher for over 10 years now and it is by far my favorite. The books are bigger than anyone else. I always make the biggest 11.5 x 15. Even other companies say their books are big but when you put them up against My Publisher, My Publisher is still bigger. I love their lay flat pages and the premium pages make scenery pictures look amazing. They will be missed. I’m not sure which company can even begin to take their place. Thanks for the memories My Publisher!!!
    But I can’t get it to post. Oh well if I won I would make a Hawaii vacation photo book.
