Are you ready to get started? For guidelines on what I need from you before we begin, please take a moment to read about how our process works.
We use archival Epson paper, and can print or resize your special pictures. It works to have one print on some pages and a dozen or more small images on others.
Pictures can be submitted as originals, digital files, slides or negatives. Originals can be used or scanned…
The price of your custom scrapbook is determined by two factors: supplies at cost and time at $10 per hour. This averages out to about $7-9 per page. At the beginning of the project, I will request a deposit to cover estimated materials ($2 per estimated number of pages). At the end of the project, I will provide a detailed invoice. Payments may be made in cash, by check, or via Pay Pal.
Here’s an example of how the cost of my sister’s two travel albums broke down:
- Supplies: two travel albums with two covers and 95 pages averaged $2.00 a page for supplies.
- Time: The average time (I have actually measured this) is 24.6 minutes per page which comes to $4.18 in labor.
I consider custom scrapbooking an avocation as well as a vocation and do it out of love for the art.
I am honored to be brought into your family enough to preserve your memories and help you tell your story.
I will let you know my availability when we begin the project. Once I begin the creative process, I work 4-6 hours a day, so 20 pages takes about 2 days (3 if I am printing and editing the images, too). Depending on whether I’m working on other projects, the project could take a couple of weeks. All efforts will be made to guarantee your “needed by” date.
