How many photos can I use?

An 8 ” X 11″ book will hold about 100-110. Then you can add pages to the books to get more photos in your book. The 8″  X 11″ is a hardback book so you can display your photos on your coffee table. I think that 100 photos make for a very interesting book.

Can you retouch my photos?

Yes, I can do that, and if you look at the pricing sheet you will note that I will enhance 100-110 of your photos for free. Now I cannot make bad pictures great, but I can help with the coloring and contrast. If I need to do more than 110 there will be a fee as that will make it a custom book.

How many pages in a book?

The standard book has 10 pages (front and back) which will actually be 20 pages for your photos. If it is a family history book you may want to do more than that because you may want to include text.  I have a sample that you can look at.

How do I get my photos to you?

If they are in a folder on your computer you may email them. If they are digital photos you can put them on a thumb drive or a CD. If they are prints you will need to scan them to a CD or thumb drive (the cheapest place I have found is CVS), this will take some time, but that is how I did my older personal family photos. Please call and talk to me about this if they are prints, and I will be glad to help you.

How long do you keep my photos?

If you have emailed them, once I’m done with your book I will delete them from my computer. If you do a CD or thumb drive I will give it back to you when you pick up your photo book, and they will be erased from my computer.

Can I use copyright photos?

NO! No professional photos can be used.

Can I see a sample?

Yes, during the original consultation I will show you some of the books that I have done.

What is the delivery time?

Deliver time depends on when the photo book is ordered, the usual is between 3-4 weeks, unless I have to mail it to you.

If I order more than one book is there a discount?

Yes. Price is depending on how many more you order.

Can I get a different size book?

Yes, you can; however, that will be a custom book and for pricing we will need to talk about what you want so I can calculate the price.

How much does it cost to add extra pages?

This is a custom book so is the same as above.

What if I want to include more pictures?

This will require additional pages and therefore would be a custom book .

How much is the shipping?

Shipping price depends on where you are located.  I try to keep prices as low as possible; however, if you need it in a hurry you can pay extra for expedited shipping.

What if I don’t like my photo book.  Can I get a refund?

It is important to me that you love your photo book, and in order to ensure this, you will have a chance to review you book before it is published.  Once I receive your written approval and your photo book is published, no refunds will be provided.
