Dear SeaShore, you have posed a very interesting question I am thinking that you really do want to get the photo's in a viewing order. As far as cost you will have to do some research. Purchase the album you wish to use, also get one or two pkgs of refills. That is generally the max for most albums to maintain a nice look. keep track of how many store envelopes of pictures you use. How long did it take you ? What prep work did you feel you had to do? Now do the math on the albums how many envelopes did you use? How many do you have left ? Thats your cost now how long did it take you thats your wages and don't forget time spent on ordering the product.
Now we all know you don't even have to make a purchase all you have to know is the total number of pictures per album est of per envelope
I just wanted to help ya get a jump start on getting the job done .
