Sports Photobooks - For Rep and High School Teams
Scrapbooks are essentially decorated photo albums—but different than a photo album because it preserves something more than just the photos. A scrapbook can include journaling (telling the story behind the photos) as well as memorabilia (tickets, certificates, letters, artwork, etc.). Many people choose to create an annual family album as well as other theme albums for special events such as vacations, weddings, or a baby's first year.
Great Memories works only in digital scrapbooking and not traditional (paper-based) scrapbooking. I work with digital photos and digital "supplies" to create your custom project and print according to your needs. The results are stunning and very professional.
Benefits of Digital Scrapbooking
- make multiple copies at anytime as gifts for grandparents and other family members (or in case your original is ever lost or destroyed)
- ensure permanent storage and archival of your precious memories
Printing Options: Photobooks
Photobooks are professionally bound books (bookstore quality) made from your digital photos. I work with several online publishing services including:
These services give me great flexibility in printing options and the results are spectacular. Photobooks can be created using simple template pages - or with custom scrapbook pages that I design for you. Any combination of simple and custom pages can be accommodated. Photobooks come in many different sizes (from 4x4 up to 12x12) with a variety of cover options (including completely customizable covers) and are the perfect way to permanently display your photo memories.
Printing Options: Albums
I can also print your customized scrapbook pages for insertion in a scrapbook album of your choice. These albums come in a wide variety of sizes, designs and prices and can be purchased at various stores including Michaels, Chapters, Wal-Mart, etc. The printed results are excellent quality and will last for years to come. This is a good option for "scrapping as you go" - pages can be designed, printed and inserted as special events happen throughout the year.
Photo Scanning & Restoration
Any prints provided to me will be scanned in. All photos will be touched-up to look their best (red eyes removed, dust & scratches repaired, lighting corrected, etc.) Your original photos will always be returned - sorted and organized. Your scanned images, as well as final page designs will be provided to you digitally, and are yours to keep forever.
Special attention is paid to old or damaged photos - see my gallery - I can make them look brand new again.
Scanning is also an amazing way to permanently archive family memoribilia or kids artwork. These items can then be used to personalize your scrapbook pages.
Having difficulty even finding your photos? Whether they are stuffed in boxes or in folders all over your computer - I can help you get them organized by date and by themes - so you can easily find what you need.
Photo Collages & Frame-able Gifts
Create the perfect gift for someone who has everything. Memories captured in beautiful designs to commemorate birthdays, anniversaries, memorials, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparent's Day - or just to say you care. Sizes from 5x7 up to 11x14 can be accommodated.
Set your photos to music and sit back and enjoy the show. Great for large gatherings - weddings, family reunions. Slideshows can be provided in video CD format (for playback on almost any DVD player) or in movie file formats for playback on PCs.
