					Custom Baby Books has a simple mantra: We create the baby book of your dreams.

No baby book off the shelf is a perfect fit. We offer you all of the pages, questions, colours, fonts and pictures you want,
none you don't. Flipping through baby books in shops is grim – first off, they're filled with pictures of random babies. We
offer you a range of stock photos to complement the pictures you submit to us, but the only baby face you’ll see will be
your own.

That's our first promise to you: no random babies.

If you don't like you be called Mummy/Daddy, we can swap names to anything of your choosing. If there's no Daddy
around, we won't leave you hanging with empty pages. For adoption, single-sex parents and gay parents, this is probably
the only baby book that will actually suit you.

In addition to selecting your pages and customising the questions on each page, you also choose whether to include: a
colour scheme, photo retouching, stock photos, quotes about babies and a graphic theme.

You’ll see bolded questions requiring your response and green lines (_______) where you can type/write your answers.
For multiple choice questions, tick an “X” in the correct checkbox. If you have any questions or to order by phone, call
07581.290997 in the U.K. and 310694.5481 in the U.S.

We promise to respect the cherished memories you share with us and look forward to getting to know you better as we
create a beautiful baby book. In this packet, you’ll find all the information you need to get started.



1. pictures

   Baby Book Lite comes with 15 photos, Baby Book Deluxe comes with 40 photos. We will scatter the photographs
   through the book, where they fit best. For digital photos , email them to info@CustomBabyBooks.co.uk. Try
   to find the highest-resolution version available. If the files are large you may have to send only a few files per email.

   If photos are hard-copy, mail them to: Corina Kellam, Custom Baby Books, 62 Shirley Street, Hove, BN3 3WG.
   They will be returned within two weeks.


2. title

   Your baby book can have any title you want. It will appear on the cover and on the spine of the book.
   We will write only what you write on this line, we will not add any subheads. Feel free to get creative!
   You can use private jokes or nicknames.

   Some former titles (Felix the Fish: Pregnancy & Baby Journal, Our Baby Record, Princess Lily's Baby
   Book, Lou's Baby Journal, My Pregnancy Diary, Mini-McManus Arrives!)

   Title _________________________________________________________________
3. covers

  We create beautiful covers incorporating photographs (our stock photos or photographs submitted by you, the
  decision is up to you). If you are looking for inspiration, here is an assortment of designs. Note the number under
  each. You may choose two designs, if you like. We will customise both and let you choose your favourite.

  __ Yes, I like the design of cover number ____ & ____
  __ No, I want a bespoke design, none of these suit me. (Call or email to discuss your preferences.)
4. colour schemes

 Though we're happy to create a custom colour scheme for you ( I'm obsessed with brown and pale pink, for example ),
 we have four basic colour schemes to choose from. Even if you want a custom scheme, please select one of the four
 colour schemes so we have an idea of your aesthetic for the other touches in the book.




 __ Pastel




 __ Bright




 __ Black & White




 __ Sepia




 If you would like a custom colour scheme, please describe it here, using colour codes of colours above, when

 possible _____________________________________________________________________


 If you only want certain colours featured, what colours do you like best, and are there any in your colour
 scheme you particularly dislike? Please use color codes, when possible.

 Favourite colors ______________, ______________, ______________, ______________

 Colours I dislike ______________, ______________, ______________, ______________

 __ I do not have favourites, feel free to use your discretion.
5. picture retouching to match colour scheme

  You may want the pastel colour scheme for the book layout, but want your photos to appear in the book in their
  natural state.

  However, we can Photoshop your personal photos to match your colour scheme. Would you like us to do so?

  __ Yes, retouch my photos to match my pastel, sepia or black & white colour scheme.
  __ No, I want my photos to remain in their natural state.



   For example, here is a typical trio
   of pictures we recieve.




   We can Photoshop them to
   appear pastel.




   We can Photoshop them to
   appear sepia.




   We can Photoshop them to
   appear black & white.
6. fonts

  You can select the fonts used in your book. One will be used for the title, on the cover of the book. It will also be used
  for headers at the top of each page. Another font will be used for the questions on each page. A third will be used for
  the answers, which will be typed/printed in if you order the Baby Book Plus or Baby Book Deluxe.


  Title & Headers Font _________________________________

  Questions Font ______________________________________

  (for Baby Book Plus or Baby Book Deluxe) Answers Font ___________________________




7. page selection

  This is the meatiest part of the Order Form. Just put an X in the blanks of the pages you wish to include and edit the
  questions as you wish, making the questions read exactly as you want them to appear. For Baby Book Plus & Baby
  Book Deluxe, type in your answers after the “…” and we will print those answers in a different font.

       Remember, we can swap Mummy/Daddy for other words (i.e. Mum/Dad, or Kate/Aimee) and for single-parent
       families, all questions will be edited (we references will be switched to I).

  When it says “tape/paste into book” the page will look like this:
