    I am wondering how long it usually takes to make a photo book on Shutterfly, from start to finish, including Shutterfly&#39;s time to print the book and ship it to the Washington D.C. area? Does anyone know? Thank you!</p>

      Hi Elia.

      Shutterfly has a feature where it makes your book for you. It will place your photos in a book, probably based on the date of them.

      Not what I would want, since making a book is a creative process, but this feature does exist.

      Assuming using a computer is not a problem, the creative process sometimes goes quickly. I find that most often it is best to take time out between versions.

      It is amazing how time away from a project can create new ideas on how best to present the material.

      My experience in sending books to US friends is that it takes roughly a week to arrive after ordering. It takes about 3 weeks for items to arrive at a Canadian address.

      Thank you so much GC!!! You were very helpful!


        Hi Elia,

        It takes 2-3 business days in printing and process the photo books but I think the processing time of layflat pages books is more compared to standard pages book and for more details on shipping you can check Shipping options.
