Here's a great example of how we can bind your child's original artwork and schoolwork. Our favorite thing about Lucas's Keepsake Book is the adorable, odd shaped pieces we were able to incorporate without having to glue them onto extra pieces of paper. We often receive things that aren't square or rectangular, especially with Pre-K and Kindergarten books. Even if the piece is round, like the blue moon below, if there is room enough on at least one edge where we can "catch" it into the binding area, we really prefer the look of binding pieces on their own, rather than attaching them to a piece of paper.
Here is a wagon with wheels and a red handle. We bound the wagon in on the left side and then folded the red handle in so it's not sticking out when the book is closed.
The owl below is not attached to a page underneath. We bound it into the book by its ears. No, not its real ears, that would be cruel. By its paper ears. The wings are made from pieces of paper plate, which are folded in when the book is closed.
We prepare all the pages for you, including any trimming, folding or mounting that is needed. If you have some items that you would like to include but you aren't sure if they will fit, go ahead and send it and if we can get it in the book we will. Unlike other art preservation companies out there, we will return any pieces that won't fit in the book without charging you extra, assuming it will fit in the box.
Items with googly eyes are usually okay, but we often have to cut off the "bubble part", then glue the eye back on, especially the larger ones.
If we can't get something into your book, please know we tried every possible position. We will return any items we can't bind with your finished book.
What sets our books apart from all the other digital memory book services out there is the fact that our books hold ORIGINAL papers, not scans or copies. So, it's important to us that we be able to include as many original pieces as we can, including things that are shaped like ducks, queens, moons, wagons, owls, and more.
