The Design Process
Q. I don’t know anything about design. How can I know what I want?
A. Our sample book will help you envision the finished product. You have the choice of using our sample (found here) as a template, or you can commission us to create a custom design. With either method, though, nothing goes to press without your express approval.
Q. What if I have a lot fewer photos than what I see in the samples? My family was pretty small!
A. No matter how long or short your story, no matter how many or how few your photos, your book will be designed to fit your story perfectly.
Q. Some of these old photos are cracked and faded. Can you still use them?
A. Absolutely! Not only that, but Susan improves every photo. Here are a few examples of how new life can be breathed into old photos.
Q. My family is huge. All these photos will mean nothing to someone reading my memoir in the future.
A. Not to worry. We write captions for each photograph and document, explaining the content. And for really complicated relationships, we can create a family tree that makes it easy for even complete strangers to understand it all.
Q. I have a treasure trove of old letters I’d love to use. But some of them are so delicate, I’m afraid they’ll fall apart.
A. We bring our equipment to your home or other location and scan your photographs and other documents onsite, so that they never need to leave your possession. We can also scan framed photographs that are too fragile to be disturbed.
