another possible alternative to this... perhaps giving an option for people to add pocket pages in the program, so they can keep these keepsakes with their albums without having to make a separate keepsake box for all of them.
Hole punch options for softcover square books
In the scrapbook community, there are many reasons why people will create page after page and then have them printed individually. Its so they can put them in an album cover of their choice which suits a baby's or adults personality... and so they can add a page with attached keepsakes. I believe you would capture a lot of this community... especially the ones that create their pages digitally, if you provided an option of several different hole spacing's for the soft covers. It would give a lot more versatility, and still keep the option open to add a page in front of/or behind their soft cover.... in album they wished to purchase separately.... and still create their special pages of hospital bands, locks of hair, movie tickets... ect.
This may seem like such a simple thing, but if you research the different hole punched styles for both the 8x8's and 12x12's, and then offer them as an option, I have no doubt this would increase your sales in a big way.... once the word has been passed around of course. :) Just a thought.

I would totally be interested in this option particularly if it was accessible via your mobile app. I would use it to create pages about activities that my kids have been up to. I take lots of photos on my phone but don't have the time to download them to a laptop and then upload them into a software for publishing. I would love to be able to quickly create A4 page collages with brief descriptions and have them printed in high resolution.
You could also provide the option to sell a hard cover folder (with a lever arch clip, or something similar) to be able to store all the pages in.
Is it possible to print unbound pages so that we can punch and bind them ourselves? (leaving room for keepsakes). I'd love to have the blurb cover as well, but for scrapbooking, enabling unbound prints seems like the easiest option for Blurb.
I am also interested in unbound pages, not for scrapbooking, but because I'm an artist and I would love to have a hand-bound book that I made myself.
I would also be very interested in unbound pages with holes. My parents gave me a wooden wedding album as a gift and I would love to print off our wedding photos via blurb and not have to use the scrapbook pockets to place them in the album as I think it will ruin the effect. Is this option available?
