4everbound - Saving Kids Artwork in a Book – 4everBound

THE DETAILS


Choosing Your Book

Our books come in three "sizes" - 30, 60, and 90 pages of flat and flexible artwork and schoolwork

  • 30 pages that will fit a ½ inch thick book
  • 60 pages that will fit a 1 inch thick book
  • 90 pages that will fit a 1.5 inch thick book
  • The maximum we can fit into a single book is 1.5 inches of paper, regardless of page count. The page count we offer is a good guide, but not all paper is the same thickness. Artwork from younger years like preschool and kindergarten tends to have more volume from glue and paint, which makes the paper wavy and the book thicker. We will do everything we can to fit what you send, but if you’re at 80 pages and the pile is 2” thick, we cannot fit it all.
    Your 4everBound Kit will arrive in just a few days after you order, so you can start organizing.

If you have any questions, please contact us. We are here to help!

What Size Book Should I Get?

  • Our page count is a good guide.  Much like purchasing clothing, it’s not an exact science. Our thickest book, the Chronicle, holds a maximum of 1.5 inches of paper, regardless of page count.
  • If you already know you have a lot of artwork and school papers, please purchase the Chronicle.
  • If you have a lot of small or odd shaped things that need to be mounted, please purchase the Chronicle.
  • If you have more than 5 or 10 large items that need to be folded, please purchase the Chronicle.
  • If you have more than 5 greeting cards, please see Other Types of Books we offer.
  • If you have more than 5 photos to be mounted, please see Other Types of Books we offer.

We Handmake Your Book

We Make Each Book One Piece of Paper at a Time

  • We trim all 9x12 papers to 8.5 x 11, trying to avoid anything significant
  • We trim and/then fold the oversized pieces larger than 9x12
  • Each fold increases the volume of your book, so there is a limit:
    • 5 pages larger than 9x12 for the 30 page Sentiment book.
    • 10 pages larger than 9x12 for the 60 page Keepsake book.
    • 15 pages larger than 9x12 for the 90 page Chronicle book.
  • We mount or otherwise prepare smaller and odd shaped pieces.
  • We try to use the blank backs of your other papers to mount things.
  • Smaller and odd shaped items ultimately count toward your page total, as they increase the thickness of your book.  If we can fit two or three smaller pieces on the back of another sheets, we will do that.
  • Please review THINGS WE CAN AND CANNOT BIND
  • We do everything we can to fit what you send. 
  • Anything we cannot bind we will return to you if it will fit into your box.  If additional postage is needed for returns, we will let you know.
  • If your paper pile is more than 1.5 inches thick, we will contact you to see if you want to add another book or if you prefer we remove some things. 
  • We ship back your finished book tracked and insured within 2-4 weeks

Things We Can & Cannot Bind

We try our best to bind everything

  • NO Cotton balls, paper plates, pom poms, beads, rice, pasta, large buttons, thick foam or puffy stickers, anything stiff that doesn’t bend, like popsicle stick frames or cardboard.
  • Feel free to remove cotton balls or pom poms before sending your art.
  • NO Sticky items. We cannot guarantee we can separate things that are stuck together.
  • YES Googly/wiggle eyes are OK. We cut off the bubble and glue on the pupil.
  • YES Laminate is okay with exceptions: if it’s not stiff; pages need to be able to bend and flex. Also, we cannot fold laminate, so if it’s larger than 8.5 x 11, we will need to trim it. Please don’t send it if you don’t want it trimmed.
    PLEASE DO NOT mount your smaller items or photos onto heavy cardstock. We will mount for you as part of our hand preparation. We don’t want your pages too stiff or thick.
  • YES to photos with exceptions: Photos will make pages heavier and stiffer. We recommend only a few photos. If you have more than 10 photos, we can scan them and create collages for you, for an additional fee.
  • YES to cards if it’s just 5 or less. Cards are thicker and require more preparation. We offer greeting card books if you have more than 5 cards.
  • If you’re not sure, please send it and we will return it if we cannot bind.
  • The cover sheet in your kit will list what we cannot bind. If you send paper plates and cotton balls and pom poms and other things already stated, there may be an additional fee assessed for removal and return. We don’t want to do that, so please don’t send them.
