To Your Questions About Our Custom Scrapbook Design Services
Common questions about our scrapbooking design services...
Why should I purchase a custom scrapbook?
photos are currently disorganized and you want to have something to show
for them. You love the look of a scrapbook but don’t’ have
any time to create one. You want to make sure they will be store in an
archival safe way.
What is the process of working with a custom
First we will have a phone or email consultation where
we can discuss the photos you are interested in scraping and any preferences
you have for the designs. You will then receive a contract that will
be required along with a 50% deposit for me to begin working on your
custom made scrapbook pages. I will email you photos of pages as they
are completed so you can see the progress. Once the pages are complete
the final payment will be due before the pages will be shipped.
I have years of photos, how do I decide where to start?
suggest starting two albums, one for this year and one for the oldest
of your photos. Grab your photos from the past year and start an album
that you can add new pages to every few months. Once you have that album
in place you can than go back to the beginning of your photos and create
an older album. By doing it this way you won’t have that feeling
never being able to catch up to your current photos.
How much does a complete scrapbook cost?
is currently $29 per page. Packages start at just $275 for a
10-page scrapbook album.
What form of payments do you accept ?
You can pay online with a credit card. I also accept PayPal, checks and money orders.
How long will it take you to complete my 20 page
album and what if I have a deadline?
It will take approximately two to
three weeks to complete a 20 page album once I receive the materials
from you. If you have a deadline, you must contact
me BEFORE you order your
package to determine whether or not I can accommodate your needs.
What if I’m not happy
with the final product?
will email you pictures of the pages as I complete them. That way, if
there is something you don’t like, I can redo the page until
we get it right.
How often will you email me pages?
I’ll send you photos of each page, starting with the first two I complete. Then I’ll
send you four pages at a time as I complete them. However, if you want
to be surprised with the album, please let me know and I will not send
pages prior to completing the entire album.
What if one of my
photographs or another item is lost, stolen, or damaged?
You are advised not to send anything of which
you do not have a copy. According to the contract clients must sign,
I am not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged items. However, if
the photos are in my control and I damage them, I will pay for the reprinting
fees. If you will be sending photographs by mail, make sure you have
the negatives or have your photos scanned into digital format before
you mail the originals to me.
What if you create a 20 page album for me and
I find more photos I want to add to the album? Can you add to the product
that you already finished for me?
Yes, you can add pages to your album.
However, you cannot go beyond the maximum number of pages that will fit
in the album. Your scrapbook, which is similar to a binder, will easily
come apart, making it simple to add the pages after you receive them.
If I order more than one product, will I receive
special pricing or a package deal?
If you purchase a 20 page album and
add additional pages, each additional page will cost $25.
Do you have any special scrapbooking offers?
offer an annual plan. With the annual plan, you will have 4 pages done
every month. For example, if you just had a baby and you sign up for
the yearly plan, you can email me photos of your baby’s milestones every month for four different layouts. I’ll
create the pages then ship them to you every two months.
Your first set will arrive in an album then you can continually add
the pages to the album as I send them to you. You will continually
send me photos. For example, in January you can send me your family
Christmas photos and your child’s birthday photos. Then in February you can send photos from your winter vacation and your daughter’s dance recital…etc.
I will then create the pages and mail them to you.
Why do 12 x 12 and 8.5 x 11 pages cost the
Patterned paper generally only comes in size 12 x 12 so therefore
I still use the same amount of paper when creating an 8.5 x 11. Also,
it usually takes the same amount of time to complete an 8.5 x 11 as it
does for a 12 x 12 page.
How do I get you my photos and memorabilia?
way is easiest for you. You can give me your photos and memorabilia via
email, mail or a photo sharing website. My preference is a single email
for each set of photos. This way you can easily include the basic who/what/when/where
and any journaling along with the set of photos.
How many photos can fit on a page?
from 1-6 on a single page layout and up to 15 on a double page layout.
Sometimes you have many photos you want to include. This can be done
by reducing the size of several of the photos.
Will you alter the photos that you use?
you specifically request for me not to, I may crop, adjust, convert to
black and white and remove red eye to help make the photos look great
in the layout. For this reason it is best for you to keep and original
copy of any non-digital photos.
Can you include my journaling on the pages?
it is great to write up your own journaling for your pages. I will print
your journaling and incorporate it into the page. I can also provide
you a journaling spot for you to handwrite your journaling after you
receive your album.
What is a page? What is a layout?
A single page
or layout is considered 1 12x12 or 8.5x11 size scrapbook page. Two pages
or layouts fit back to back in 1 page protector. For a 20 page album
there will be 10 page protectors holding 20 pages. A 2 page layout is
two side by side pages that flow together. They share the same theme/event
and their materials match. 2 page layouts are great when you have lots
of photos for a single event. This creates a nice book feel when each
left and right page in the album go together.
If I want you to use some products I already
purchased can you do that?
Yes just send them to me and I can fit them
into the page.
I saw a certain product that I want included,
can you get it and use it?
If it’s something that is still available
and I can find it, I can certainly use it in the page.
If I have an idea
for a photo gift/project that you don’t
have listed on your site can you still create it for me?
Let me know what
you have in mind and I’ll let you know if it’s
something I could do and provide you with a quote.
Can you make the same album/layout twice?
this is great if you want to give the same album as a gift to two separate
people. Contact me about getting a discount on a duplicate album.
