Iris is amazing- she is very easy to work with and responds to emails quickly. She made us the perfect photo album to commemorate the memories of our friends and family who have visited us in Chicago! We will cherish our guestbook" photo album for years to come.

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.
