Popcorn Season!

Derek S. and his sister, Karly, from Rockford, Michigan take the annual Boy Scout Popcorn Sale seriously! The brother and sister team were selling the delectables Sunday afternoon in a busy parking lot in Cedar Springs, Michigan.

They were happy to pose for a picture. It's not every day a brother can get his sister to dress up as a box of popcorn!

Events like these make great subjects for photo cards, and even trading cards! Friends and family may appreciate receiving an unexpected card in the mail like this.Greeting card













Trading card (2.5 x 3.5 front and back shown)

Pictures like these also work well for a family calendar.

Hot Nights; Hot Cars: Community Events Photo Books

Community Events make great subjects for photo books! Last week thousands of people staged themselves along 28th Street, from Wyoming to Kentwood, Michigan to catch a glimpse of cars from bygone eras. Cars from the 50's, 60's and 70's cruised 28th Street as onlookers in their 50's, 60's and 70's remembered their youths, their first cars, their stories.

Luckily, we had our camera on hand to snap a few shots. The left page, in the example above, uses a picture of the official sign as the background with three small inset pictures of T-shirts sold commemorating the event. The right page showcases a few of the hood ornaments.


Community Event photo books make great thank-you gifts for the sponsors of the event.

Background Ideas for Photo Books

Almost as important as the pictures in your photo book are the backgrounds. Our photo book program has many backgrounds from which to choose. They come in different colors and themes, all able to fade back as you choose.

Have you considered using your own pictures as backgrounds in your photo book? We hope the following examples will spark your creativity and help you look at your surroundings a bit differently.

We've all witnessed beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Many of us have taken pictures of just such events. What do you do with that beautiful sunset from this year's vacation? Try using it as a background for your pictures.

This two page spread is of a sunset in Lake Superior Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. We placed photo boxes along the side and bottom of the pages to illustrate that other pictures, perhaps of the people experiencing the sunset, can be used on the page as well.

This is the same two page spread with the background faded back 33%.

Shoreline rocks and water, also taken in Lake Superior Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada, are the subjects of this background. The right page background has been faded back 33%.

A sandy beach is the subject of this background. Again, the right page background has been faded back 33%.

Beach chairs on a sandy beach are the subjects of this background. The photo boxes on the left page have been arranged in a whimsical fashion. The right page background has been faded back 33%. Our photo book program makes it easy to let your creativity shine through.

Our final example of a background page is a map. The map shows the route taken on this vacation. Pictures can easily be added, as illustrated above. The right page background has been faded back 33%.

VACATION! Photo Books Part 4: The Vacation

The vacation is over. The memories, like the sand in your shoes, linger. Now is the perfect time to create your Vacation Photo Book.

After you have decided what organizational structure you will use (chronological, topical, etc.) and you have sorted your pictures accordingly, it's time to think about page backgrounds. Our photo book program has many backgrounds from which to choose. But you might want to consider using some of your pictures as backgrounds in your Vacation Photo Book.

Here is an example of a two-page spread using a picture of shoreline rocks underwater as the background. This photo was taken in Lake Superior Provincial Park in Ontario, Canada. It captures the rocks and water that were present throughout this vacation. This background is neutral enough to use on several pages. It can also be saved and used as a background in future photo books.


Here is an example of a 'sand shot' used as the background for the opening page of a North Carolina ocean vacation taken this summer.

Here is an example of a background that is available with our photo book program. This background is textured and comes in several colors. This background complements the photos on this page.

Another idea is to use a group picture as the background and place candid shots highlighting the activity along the side. A caption completes the page.

Please visit our web site for more information on how Freeze Frame Publishing can help you freeze time and frame your vacation memories forever.

VACATION! Photo Books Part 2: The Day-cation

A "daycation" is another mode of summer vacation. A one-day adventure for you and your family or friends. Daycations make great themes for photo books! A day at the beach. A day at the zoo. A day in your back yard hosting a 'gala,' perhaps.

The needed ingredient: your digital camera!

Please visit our web site for more information on how Freeze Frame Publishing can help you freeze time and frame your daycation memories forever!

Wedding Photo Books Part 6: Remember I Do

We have been talking about different ways in which to chronicle your wedding events: guest signature photo books; attendants' photo books; pre-wedding photo books; the big event photo books; and honeymoon photo books. Please see our past posts for more information on these photo books. You can also enter the word "weddings" in the search box at the top of this blog to see a full listing of wedding entries.

It's never too late for the 'already-marrieds' to create lasting memories of their wedding days and events surrounding their vows. Photo books have come to the fore in the past five years. There are more and more opportunities for you to create personal photo books blossoming every day.

Do you have a traditional wedding book tucked away safely in a closet or drawer, no longer readily available for perusing? Do you still have loose snapshots of your wedding events in photo lab envelopes or a 'picture drawer'? Why not create a new photo book to commemorate your wedding?

A personally created Remember I Do photo book would make a lovely gift for your parents, your friends and yourself.

Get your wedding album and wedding pictures out; reminisce with your spouse and loved ones as you choose pictures to use in building your Remember I Do photo book. If you choose pictures from your professionally created wedding album make sure to check your records or call the photographer to see if you can make copies of those pictures. Select your pictures, convert them to a digital format and start creating (or re-creating!) your wedding! It's that easy! You may even wish to dedicate a page or two to the two of you today!

Now is the time to settle in to your new life together, but for many of you, not before you take a honeymoon. Your honeymoon is your first vacation with your new spouse. In between relaxing and reflecting and settling in to your new life we hope you'll take some time to snap a few pictures.

A Honeymoon Photo Book would make a nice addition to your complete wedding story photo book collection.

Wedding Photo Books Part 4: The Big Event

You've spent much time and money preparing for your big day. How will you remember it once it has passed? A Wedding Photo Book that you create can be the perfect way to remember your big day!

There are a few ways in which to create your Wedding Photo Book. One way is to ask your photographers if they offer photo books in one of their packages. If they do not currently, Freeze Frame Publishing can assist them in printing a photo book containing their professionally taken photographs.

Another way you can create your Wedding Photo Book is to have lots of cameras available throughout your wedding day events. Place cameras on tables and let your guests snap pictures of your big day from their vantage points. Provide collection centers for the cameras near the exit areas when your guests leave. Have these pictures burned to CDs or other digital media. You now have many pictures, taken by your guests, to choose from as you create your own Wedding Photo Book.

Your guest-taken pictures can also be used to make "thank you" photo books. Or you can make individual prints of special photos to enclose in greeting cards at a later date!

Our photo book program is easy to use and can accommodate both text and pictures with limitless layout and background options.

Enjoy your special day. Enjoy the memories you create!

Wedding Photo Books Part 3: Pre-Wedding Memories

You have spent a lot of time planning your wedding day. You have taken care of some of the details; you have some ideas for attendants' gifts. Now it's time to focus on you and your future spouse.

Shutters will be 'clicking' away on your wedding day. You will have many versions of your big day in pictures from many different angles, many different photographers. Pictures of your big event will be plentiful. We'll talk more on that later.

Have you considered chronicling your pre-wedding events? All of the activities leading up to your vows can make a great photo book too. A pre-wedding photo book detailing these events can be a nice companion to your wedding book.

Our photo book program allows you to enter text as well as photos. You can recount how the 'big question' was popped. Sprinkle in photos and text of sharing your good news with your parents, your friends and family. Add some photos of dress shopping, tux shopping, bridal showers and couples parties. And remember to talk about picking the reception site, the menu, the music, the invitations and announcements. This might also be a good place to introduce your attendants as well. A good ending to your pre-wedding photo book might be pictures from your rehearsal and rehearsal dinner, if you have one.

Enjoy this special time in your lives.

Wedding Photo Books Part 2: Attendants' Photo Books

Many of you will be giving the attendants in your wedding a special momento in appreciation for all they have done for you and your future spouse.

Attendants' Photo Books might be the special gifts you've been looking for!

There are a few ways in which you can create Attendants' Photo Books for the participants in your wedding. One way is to create a photo book showcasing pictures of you and your attendants over the years. You can devote specific pages to each of your attendants as well as devote specific pages to any showers or parties you may have had. This photo book would be suitable for everyone in your bridal party.

Another idea for Attendants' Photo Books would be to create personalized versions for each of your attendants. To do this, create one common section of your book. The common section could include bridal shower and party pictures, shopping for and trying on dresses, as well as any other pictures in which all participants are present. You can then personalize each book by devoting a few pages in the front of the book to each attendant. Simply create one personalized photo book and save it. When you re-open your book you can change the personalized photos and re-save your book under a different name. Repeat this process for each of your attendants.

Another idea is to create entirely different photo books for each attendant.

Our photo book program allows easy personalization with the availability of customized captions and page layouts.

Mention this blog post when ordering your Attendants' Photo Books and receive one free photo book with the purchase of four photo books.

Wedding Photo Books Part 1: Guest Book Photo Books

The summer months are the most popular months for weddings. If you, or someone you know, are planning a wedding you are aware of all of the details that go into making your wedding day special.

Have you thought about your Guest Book? Photo Books make great wedding Guest Books!

With a little pre-planning you can create a personally customized Guest Book. In addition to having a record of all of the attendees you will have a memorable record of some of the items used in the wedding as well as places where the events were held.

What pictures to include and how many are up to you. Perhaps you'd like to have a picture of the place where you exchanged your vows. A picture of your rings. Your champagne glasses. The garter. Your wedding invitation. Leave plenty of space for your guests to sign and have plenty of fine-point, Sharpie-style pens available.

Our photo book program allows your creativity to show as you design your Guest Book. Pictures can be large or small, full page, faded back. You can add titles or phrases on pages or leave them blank. The possibilities are endless.

We hope this suggestion has been helpful. Please visit our web site for more information on how Freeze Frame Publishing can help you freeze time and frame your wedding memories forever!

Pics of My Pets: Part 4: Cut Outs

We've been showing different photo book page options to showcase your favorite pet. Today we'd like to show you another option: cut outs (and not the sugar cookie variety, either!).

This picture of Sparty in her beach gear makes a great two-page centerfold in your photo book.

This picture would also make a good "cut out" suitable for framing. Another idea is to put magnetic tape on the back and post the picture on your refrigerator.

Pics of My Pets: Part 3 "Centerfolds"

Do you have pictures of your pets that capture their unique personalities? Maybe you have a series of pictures surrounding one event. These pictures may be just perfect to create a full two-page spread of your pet.

We have built a sample two-page spread of Clara. We have built it two different ways to show you some of the possibilities available to you when using our photo book program.

In the above example, the two-page spread has one central picture and four smaller "series" pictures. The central picture has been faded back 33%. The four surrounding pictures have not been faded.

In our second example, the two-page central picture has not been faded back. The four smaller "series" pictures are accented by different colored frames.

Pics of My Pets: Part 1

Pets certainly add another dimension to our lives. Sparty Sue, from Lowell, had adventures of her own while her "parents" were away.

Pat, Sparty's "dad", documented the incident.
By the looks of things, Sparty was remorseful, at least for the time being.
Pictures capture the moments of our pets' lives just as they capture our lives. Why not consider a Pics of My Pets photo book to remember the other members of your family?

Thanks Dads!

Father's Day is tomorrow, Sunday, June 15. Father's Day is placed between two "life changing" events: graduations, and weddings. And near the beginning of summer vacation for the school-aged set. With so many other happenings, it's easy for Father's Day to be an "oh...what are we doing for dad this year?" after thought. Just as moms are important in our lives everyday, so too are dads.

Happy Father's Day, dads! Even if words aren't always there, you are. You are in our thoughts; your influence lives long into our futures.

My dad has been gone nearly 27 years now but I can still hear him ask me, "who do you want to be, Laura?" That question has helped guide me thoughout my life. I am now embarking on a new entreprenuerial adventure...but I come by the ability to take on the challenge honestly.









Thank you, fathers. Thanks, Dad.

Graduaton Photo Books: Part 4--One Last School Memory!

By now many of you have crossed that stage, received your coveted diplomas and are ready to take on the world! We all congratulate you. Your hard work and dedication have finally paid off. We have been encouraging you to take pictures of all of your graduation-related events. Now, what will you do with all of your pictures? Perhaps many of you have already posted your best shots on Facebook or another social networking site. And your friends have likely done the same.

The internet social networking sites make it easy to instantly share your photo memories with others in your group. That is great. With the proper equipment(large screen TVs, hand-held internet devices, etc.) many can view your site at the same time. Have you thought about where your pictures, your tangible memories, might be twenty years from now?

I read an article in the Grand Rapids Press recently written by Sarah Viren from the Houston Chronicle where she talks about several high schools in the Houston area doing away with yearbooks. Four national colleges have done the same. Social networking sites are cited as one of the reasons for the decline in popularity of the more traditional yearbooks.

That has me thinking about photo books and graduations and "holders" of memories. Social networking sites are marvelous for storing pictures and connecting and re-connecting with friends. But a printed book is also a good way of storing memories. A printed book does not rely on any technology. It is there for the holding.

Perhaps you can use the social networking sites to gather your pictures, select the best ones and build your own personal graduation photo book. Chances are some of your friends have some great shots. Uploading them to a social networking site ensures many "angles" of your shared memories!

Please visit our web site for information on our special graduation promotions now in progress!

Congratulations, Graduates!

Memorial Day

It's Sunday morning. The sun is shining. Croton Pond is calm, save for a few fishing boats motoring to their favorite fishing holes. Truly a beautiful morning! Tomorrow is Memorial Day, a day originally set aside to honor our country's Civil War dead. Many years, many wars, have passed since our first "Decoration Day" in 1868. Amidst all of the events your weekend holds we hope you'll find time to share stories and share blessings.

And while stores entice us with must-have sale items, grills await their first big firings of the summer season, flowers await planting... please take a moment to remember all of the men and women who sacrificed greatly that we might enjoy the freedoms we have.

Thank you for visiting our site. We welcome your comments.

Graduation ceremonies are fast approaching. Now is a good time to take some still shots of your graduation accessories! Before the 'big day' why not scan your announcement, your open house invitation and your name card. And while you're at, don't forget to take a picture or two of your cap and gown (with or without the graduate in it!), any commemorative items you might have and your class ring. These pictures will make great back grounds for a Graduation Photo Book.

Graduation

It's that time of year again. Students ending one phase of their lives and beginning new phases. I don't think it is an accident that many graduations occur in the spring. Spring marks Nature's new beginnings, it also marks the new beginnings for the students in our lives.

Are you planning a graduation party in celebration of this event? Will you display pictures of your graduate through the years? After the festivities end, after the thank-you cards are sent, after the last of the food has been eaten, why not build a photo book especially for your graduate?

Photo books make great keepsakes and great ways to store and share your memories.

If you would like help or suggestions in building a graduation photo book, or any photo book, please contact us. Please visit our web site for information on how Freeze Frame Publishing can help you freeze time and frame your memories forever.

Mother's Day and Photo Books


While Mother's Day is "officially" recognized on Sunday, May 11 this year, we all know that moms play a special role in all of our lives every day. Mother's Day is a nice reminder to do something special for all the moms in our lives...










... and a nice reminder to be thankful for all of the children who make us mothers.

There is still time to make a special photo book for your mom. You need not be limited to using pictures, either. Do you still have some art work you created when you were in elementary school? Awards and recognitions stashed somewhere? A favorite card you made just for mom? Chances are your mom cherished and carefully saved those items for you. Why not surprise her with a photo book containing pictures of those memories too?

Need Assistance? Freeze Frame Publishing is ready to help you create a special Mother's Day photo book for your mom. Please check our web site for more details on special promotions as well as our product offerings.
Happy Mother's Day, Mom! Thank you, Collin, for making me a mom!

Draft Your Book; We Can Build It!


What are doing with all of your pictures? Are they still on your computer? In your camera? Let Freeze Frame Publishing help you create custom photo books to store and share your memories.

Pick a theme for your photo book, select the pictures you wish to put in it and give us a call. It's that easy!

If you know what pictures you want on each page and what captions, if any, you'd like to use, why not make a mock-up book? Ann, from Michigan, had an idea of the layout of her book. She pasted copies of her pictures in a word document and printed them. She then taped them on a blank page and noted other pertinent details. Her pictures were not full scale. Ann chose to number her pictures and captions and type them on a separate sheet for her design consultant.


Another way you can draft your book is to number your pictures on your CD or flash drive, enclose a page explaining what pictures you want on which pages. If you want to add captions, make note of that as well. You do not need to print any copies of your pictures at all!




You can also let our consultants design your photo book. Please see our Services section and our Products and Pricing section on our main web page for further information. We're here to help you freeze time and frame your memories forever!

We welcome your comments and suggestions.
