I recently received my bespoke, personalised Photo Booth guestbook and it is absolutely beautiful. The quality and workmanship are evident and it is the perfect size with space for 1 photo strip per page and ample room on the page for my guests to write their notes next to their photos. The custom colours I chose, as well as the binding, are lovely. This will definitely be a treasured item of memories from our wedding. If you want something truly beautiful and unique, this is it! Iris was fantastic to work with as well, and we quickly agreed on the specs over email.

Frequently asked questions

When will my custom order ship?

Orders placed the week of July 24th, 2017 will ship the week of August 28th, 2017. If you need your order sooner, let me know your shipping destination and required delivery date an i can confirm a timeline.

What are the bookcloth and endsheet?

The bookcloth is the material that wraps the outside of the book. It is the color you see on the covers. The endsheet is the paper that lines the inside of the covers. It is the color you see on the inside of the front and back covers.

How does proofing work?

Within 1-3 business days of an order being placed you will receive a proof of you text in the font that you have chosen via etsy mesasge. Look over the proof to confirm that text, spelling and date are correct. Respond via etsy message or email with approval or any changes that need to be made. Production on your item will not begin until the proof has been approved.

Can the text be printed in colored ink?

Unfortunately only black ink is available.

Can a custom order be rushed?

Custom orders can be rushed for a fee. If you are concerned about the timeline of an order feel free to contact me with your shipping zip code and required delivery date. I will layout a timeline with options for you.

Can I add more pages to a book?

Pages can be added to most books. Let me know which item you are interested and the total number of pages you'd like and I'll provide a price quote for the additional pages.

Care instructions

Store your book in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. Avoid any contact with water.

If the cover of your book has become dirty, you can use a clean white eraser to gently remove any dust or smudges. Same goes for the pages. If your book has become damaged, contact me to inquire about a repair. I can repair most damage for a fraction of the price of replacing the book.

What type of pens are suitable for use with the guestbooks?

For pens, I DO NOT recommend fine point sharpies as they can bleed through the paper.

If you are interested in a felt tip colored pen I recommend Microns or LePen.
Most ball point and gel pens are fine, though I recommend a quick drying gel pen like Inkjoy so that it does not smudge.

If you'd like to receive paper samples to test pens with your order, just make a note at checkout and i'll include that.
