“Your memories deserve to be printed.”
Don't leave your photos just laying around on your desktop or phone. Print them!
Every time you look at them you will be flooded with your happy memories. Something we all desperately need.
You can't buy happiness. But you can invest in things that bring up your happy memories.
the real deal. you shouldn't read this
The best investement
Okay, so you looked through some photos of the books and you thought: "Aww these are so beautiful!" And then you saw the pricing and maybe cringed a little.
I feel ya! But I can ease your anxiety!
Let's look at it this way.
How much do you spend on a Christmas gift for you parents? Remember that struggle of finding that one perfect thing that you think they will enjoy? Once you give it to them how much do they actually like it? Use it, enjoy it, when will it break? And how much did you pay? Probably too much or not enough.
How much do you spend on groceries? If you make a delicious dinner will it last you for weeks?
Of course not. You will eat it and forget about it.
How much do you spend on some good liquor? And you are okay to spend that much because it's good quality stuff right?
A trip to a nice restaurant, all your TV subscriptions, a movie ticket. I can go on but I think you get what I mean.
Let's face it there are a lot of things in your life that you spend easily over $100 on and they don't last.
We tend to buy things that give us instant gratification and that's just it.
We don't invest but we spend.
That is why these books might look "expensive" to you because you look at them as an "expense" when really it's an investment.
These books are the only investment that will actually grown in value over time. Your parents will cherish them for years. You will cherish it. Your kids will thank you for these memories. Can you really put a price tag on your parents tear/ Can you really call a legacy " expensive"? No.
These books are your legacy. Their value is immeasurable.
So how does this work?
You pick 50-60 of your favourite photos either through your gallery or just by emailing me the photos.
While I make a pretty lovely mock up of your photos you pick the cover you would like, size and if you want any debossing for the title.
You can fill all that out in a form at the bottom of the page.
After you approve the mock up the book is sent to print! It takes about a week to get printed (it's all handmade) and a week to ship.

Let's make your book!
Fill out this form and we will get started right away!
You can send me the photos through your gallery - just give me a shout and I will set it up!
Or just email them to me =)
How long does it take to make the book?
The mockup is made in 1-2 days. After your approval of the mockup I send the book to print and it takes about 5-7 business days for the book to be put together. It is a handmade masterpiece, you don't want to rush it =) The book ships in another week depending where you are and the mood of Canada Post workers.
Why does the book cost so much?
It's handmade heirloom quality. It is put together by hand and printed in local Canadian small batch print labs. Unlike Costco or Shoppers it's not printed with big soulless machines but by real people.
