About the book: The book has 12 pages including the outside front and back covers. Each page features your chosen photo (except the outside back cover) and text, creating a book which is totally unique for 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 11 photos for your book - one for the front cover, and 10 for the inside pages (the outside back cover doesn't feature a photo). They need to be between 50kb 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 cover photo will be cropped to a circle shape, quite tightly around the subject (resolution and photo layout permitting). The frames on the inside pages of the books are 3x2 ratio. You can either crop your remaining 10 photos to this ratio before sending them (ideally working to 9cm x 6cm size), or you can send them as they are and your photo will be cropped for you as it is felt best suits the photo. If you have a photo which needs to be "zoomed in", it is best if you can do this yourself before sending the photo to ensure it is cropped in the way you want it. If your photos are a different orientation to those shown on the sample pages (for example, if you want a portrait photo on a page that shows a landscape photo in the sample book images) that's not a problem - the artwork is created to order each time and will be adapted to suit your own individual photos.
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 (except the outside back cover) 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. The outside back cover of the book features your own special message, up to 4 lines long.
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 3-5 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).
