About

Making Memories for Children

Hullabaloo Stories sprung out of a desire to make sure our children know other members of the family who live very far away.

One evening, Christine mentioned to Will that she wanted to figure out a way to make a board book, so Ainsleigh could still hold it, chew on it, and it would last more than one afternoon. Christine thought it would be nice to have photos of family members, since the majority of them live about 3,000 miles away.

Christine started designing books for her daughter and when friends and family said the books were really unique and a few other moms asked about purchasing them, Hullabaloo Stories was born.

We began to add items for families to personalize their space and are enjoying creating new types of items including printables and flashcards.

When do I send the photos to Hullabaloo Stories?
After completing your purchase we will send you an email with a link to upload your photos. Please save this link, in case you need to upload more photos later on (just in case).

What size photos do I need?
You will need to send us full size photos. If you have taken photos from a digital camera (point & shoot or DSLR) that size will be perfect. If you have scanned photos make sure they are hi-resolution (at least 300 dpi). If you have questions about photos, we can always have you send one to us and we can check it before we finish your book.

How are your images printed?
Our images are all printed on high quality photo paper or transfer paper.

You do the layouts, right?
Absolutely, this is the best part of the book making process for us. We love creating a story for you and your family to enjoy.

Fabric Book Questions

Can I pick my own fabric for a book?
Absolutely, we stock many kid-friendly fabrics and prints and can tailor fabrics to fit a “theme” for you. If you have some ideas, we can also scout some out. If you have the perfect fabric already, let us know and we can arrange for a custom order.

Can my fabric book have crinkle material?
Yes, our daughter loves the crinkle pages; we include this unless you request not to have it. All fabric books have batting and crinkle in between the pages to make it very kid friendly.

What sizes are available?
Each fabric book usually measures roughly 5-6 inches x 5-6 inches. If you would like a larger fabric book, please indicate this on your order details and we will provide you a quote with any additional costs or contact us and we can get you a quote in advance.

Board Book Questions

How are they attached?
Images for board books are attached using a laminating machine that puts an adhesive backing on it.

Can the photos peel off?
Well our daughter is pretty adventurous so she has been known to tear up many books, but the books we have made for her have really held up compared to the books we buy her at the store.

What sizes are available?
You can purchase a 5x5 inch or 8x8 inch board book.
