Signature Photo Book

There's still time to make a Signature Photo Book for your graduate. Create this photo book with a few pictures and lots of room for signatures and words of wisdom for your graduate. Below are a few sample pages of a Signature Photo Book.


Remember to have colorful pens (Sharpie fine points work well) available for your guests to use as they leave their words of wisdom for the new graduate.

Perhaps you'd like to have a special page for the siblings of the graduate.

Enjoy the season. Enjoy the moments. You are creating new memories to share. Congratulations, graduates! Congratulations, parents!

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!

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.

Welcome summer. Thank you veterans. Thank you families of veterans.

Graduation Photo Books: Part 3

We've been talking about creating pre-big-day photo book pages to commemorate your special graduate. Have fun trying new layouts. The two-page layout below was made using a graduation announcement on both pages and topped with pictures of the outside and the inside of the announcement.
Our photo book program has many options making it easy to create a photo book just right to remember your special occasion. Go ahead; be adventurous with your page lay outs!

Enjoy the season... eat lots of good food... share lots of fond memories... take lots of new pictures.

Here is an example of a two page spread built before all of the festivities have occurred.

Graduation Photo Book: Part 1

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.
