If you sell a product or service, you’d be crazy not to at least consider selling online.  For some businesses, this is as simple as using a PayPal button to accept deposits or fees online; for others it means implementing a comprehensive e-commerce platform complete with shopping cart, tax, shipping, and inventory management features.

There are numerous options for processing online payments.  Here I’m going to talk about PayPal, Square, and Weebly …. read more

Father’s Day

JUNE 19, 2016
My Great-Grandfather, Grandfather, Mother
Did you know that Father’s Day idea came about as far back as 1910?  A 27 year old woman named Sonora Dodd wanted to honor father who raised her and her five siblings after her mother died in childbirth.
A bill to nationally recognize the holiday was introduced in Congress in 1913, but really become popular during World War II.  There were two attempts to recognize the holiday but Congress rejected both.  Then in 1966, President Lyndon Johnson issued the first presidential proclamation honoring father and designated the third Sunday in June as Father’s Day.  Six year later, that date was made a permanent national holiday.  President Richard Nixon signed it into law in 1972.

Honor your father by giving him something that he can always cherish…..a PHOTO BOOK!  What a way to celebrate not only his special day but his life.  You need to get me your photos by June 1 in order to get it done and have it in time for his day!  Just go to my website fill out the order form or call me at 806-790-7001.

Thanks – Mother’s/Graduation Day Photo Books

I want to thank all of you that were interested in having a photo book made for your Mother for Mother’s Day!  I don’t know about you but I have run out of gift ideas for Mother and this is always a good gift.  Mother’s and Grandmother’s love pictures of their children and grandchildren.

Now you better get ready for graduation!  Don’t you think your daughter/son going off to school for the first time would love to have a book of all those funny candid shots of their family?  Maybe not all children will admit that they will get lonesome, but my guess is that they WILL and this is a perfect gift.  You might be able to do it yourself, however WILL YOU?  Time gets away from us!   This is just like all the other things you intend to get done before they leave and it falls by the way side.  Your time is better spent with them doing fun things.  Get me the photos, I can have one done in a couple of weeks (for the first ones that order…may take a little longer if you wait to order) and they will be ready to go.  So get your order in early!

Pets – Pets – Love your Pets?


You take your pets to their favorite kennel; you buy them toys they like; and you take pictures of them.  You do all this because you love them and you know they love you unconditionally.

When I started my business…PHOTO BOOK DESIGNS I had a client ask me if I could do a photo book for her of her pets (both past and present).  I did and I thought it was such a great idea and the book turned out so wonderful. She loved it and now she can keep her loved pets right on her coffee table (so to speak).  What a wonderful way to honor not only your family, but really your extend family.   You can put your pet pictures on a jump drive or put them in a folder and email them to me.  I will do a 20 page book.   Don’t forget to include the ones that have gone on to be a pet in heaven.  Check out my website for all the details… …  Note:  You do not pay anything up front, only once you approve the book.

Graduation is just around the corner

photo books 001p

With graduation just around the corner I want to make my readers an offer I hope they can not refuse.  If you order a photo book between now and May 15, 2016 I will give you a 10% discount.  A photo book would make a one of a kind gift for your student that is graduating, whether it be from high school, college or any other type of schooling.  And what would your Mother love more than a book fill with photos of maybe grand children or all the family members?  However with time running short (for Mother’s Day) I can only get it done if I have your pictures in the next 10 days (by about April 15).  Call me if you need a rush one.

Celebrate your life with a beautiful photo book!
