Trade Tricks: Family Snapshot
Create a custom book to capture a slice of your child's early years
No matter which service you choose, you'll be able to personalize details like the number of pages, cover image, type and more. Once you've designed your book, these services will professionally print and bind the book for you. They're relatively affordable and the results are outstanding.
Another option is to bind your own book with a product like the Bind-It Covermate machine (www.bind-it.com). This allows you to do everything at home, from printing the pages to putting the final touches on the book.
Don't forget to add fun captions for each of the photos. This is another place where the child can be a big help. You want the book to capture the child's personality, and there's no better way to do that than to have them help you write descriptions of the photos you've collected together.
