This beautiful handmade baby board book is fully personalised and made to order, featuring your own photos and choice of wording. A lovely and truly unique gift for a baby, toddler or young child - perfect for a birthday or christening, Christmas or just a special keepsake treat.
This chunky handmade board book features a simple and bold design, with bright colours on each page and bold simple text. The book measures 4x4" and has rounded corners, perfect for little hands. Your child will adore looking at photos of themselves or friends and family in their very own book. Each book is handmade to order, and totally unique to you.
About the book: The book has 12 pages including the outside front and back covers. Each page features your chosen photo and text, creating a book which is totally unique to your child. The books are made from chunky board with a glossy finish to really bring your photos to life. (Please be aware the book isn't waterproof or indestructible, and it's advised that you don't let your child chew on the book as, like most board books, this will damage it.)
Also available laminated: If you want to give the book to a younger reader I'd recommend you upgrade to a laminated finish to give the book more durability. The pages won't be waterproof but they will be water (and dribble!) resistant, plus you can wipe them clean with a slightly damp cloth if the pages get sticky. The laminated finish also gives the pages a gorgeous vibrant look, with a smooth glossy finish that will resist finger marks.
(Please remember to select the finish you would like for your book from the drop down menu before adding it to the cart)
How to Order: You will need 12 photos for your book. They need to be between 250kb and 2MB in size, and in jpeg format. Decide which of your photos you would like to appear on which page, jotting down the text you would like to appear with that photo (maximum 60 characters per page). Please choose photos that are nice and clear, and not too dark or blurred. Very dark/light or poorly focused photos won't give a good result, so pick your photos carefully and chose ones that are a good size! Once you have decided on your chosen photos, please re-title and save each photo with your surname and the corresponding page number you would like it to appear on: for example "Smith front" for the front cover, "Smith 1" for page 1, and so on. Use the images shown here of the page spreads to keep track of how your photos will be ordered.
A note about your photos: The Front & Back Cover photos are both cropped to a square and fill the entire page. The text is written over the top of the photos so please bear this in mind when choosing your photos so that nothing important is likely to be obscured by the text.
The area for the photos on the inside pages is rectangular and measures approximately 76mm x 102mm (landscape format). Your photos will be cropped to these dimensions for you, or you're welcome to crop them yourself before sending them over. Please bear in mind the shape that the photos will be cropped for the book (eg, into squares for the covers, and rectangles for the inside pages) and make sure that nothing important is likely to be cut from the photo. For best results, it's recommended that you choose photos that were originally shot in a landscape format for the inside pages as they will lend themselves to the shape more readily.
A note about the text: You can write your own wording for each page - you can even give the book your own title. Each page is limited to 60 characters. Please note that if you require several words on one page the size of the text will need to be reduced in order for it to fit. Please do not exceed 60 characters. The books all use a natural, clear font similar to that used in schools due to its clarity and the fact that the letter 'a' for example is written in a natural way.
IMPORTANT: When placing your order, please supply a contact email address - you will be contacted via email within one working day of placing your order with instructions on where to send your photos and wording.
Delivery: Your book will be created and dispatched within 5 working days of receiving your photos and wording. It will be dispatched via courier, please allow approximately 2-5 working days for delivery. Your book will be wrapped in pretty pale blue tissue paper and will be securely packaged and delivered in a strong box. (Overseas orders will be sent via Royal Mail, please allow approximately 5-10 working days for delivery).
