'Photo' Personalised Baby Board Book

Personalised Baby Board Book | handmade board books, made to order using your photos & words, range of designs available, by PhotoFairytales.

This board book design is the perfect showcase for your photos - simply your photos shown to maximum effect, and text below each image with different brightly coloured backgrounds. A striking design with a clear and simple layout, young children and toddlers will love the simplicity of this book. The clean and simple layout will show off your photos beautifully and the bright colours behind the text will add to the eye-catching feel of the book. (If you'd prefer the background colours to be a simple white or all one specific colour that's not a problem - just pop a message in the 'special instructions' box on the payment screen and let me know!) The board book is personalised with your own wording throughout. The design requires 12 photos: 10 for the inside pages, plus two for the outside front and back covers.

"I just received our personalised book and I have to tell you that I am absolutely delighted with it! It is so beautiful and was obviously made with real care and skill. Great job!"

HOW TO ORDER: This is where the fun really starts and you begin to design your book! Have a pen and paper handy... View all the pages of the book in close up by clicking on the first picture of the gallery above. As you flick through the pages decide which of your photos you would like to appear on which page, jotting down the text you'd like to appear with that photo (max 60 characters per page). Please read the information below regarding how to choose the right photos. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.

About the wording: You can write your own text for each page - you can even give the book your own title. Each page is limited to 60 characters. The books all use a natural, clear font similar to that used in schools due to its clarity and the fact that the letter 'a' for example is written in a natural way.

About the photos: As the photos are an important part of the design of this book, for best results please supply pictures that are good quality, and nice and clear. Very dark/light or poorly focused photos won't give a good result, so pick your photos carefully and chose ones that are a good size! Your photos will be carefully cropped individually to ensure they are shown to their best effect. For best results, I would recommend you choose photos that were originally shot in a landscape format for the inside pages as they will lend themselves to the shape more readily. You will need 12 photos in total, and they need to be at least 250kb in size, although even bigger is better as it will give a better finished result (maximum size 2MB). Your photos should be saved in JPEG format, and nice and clear. Please save the photos titled with your surname and the corresponding page number you would like it to appear on: for example "Smith front" for the front cover, "Smith 1" for page 1, and so on.

  • The Front & Back Covers: These photos are cropped to a square and fill the entire page. The text is written over the top of the photos so please bear this in mind when choosing your photos so that nothing important is likely to be obscured by the text.
  • The Inside Pages: The area for the photos on the inside pages is rectangular and measures approx 76mm x 102mm (landscape format). I will crop your photos to these dimensions for you, or you're welcome to crop them yourself before sending them over.

Are my photos the right shape - landscape or portrait? If your photos are a different orientation to those shown on the sample pages (eg, if you want a portrait photo on a page that shows a landscape photo in the sample book above) that's not a problem - the artwork is created to order each time just for you and will be adapted to suit your own photos.

Photos too big or can't rename them? If your photos are too big to meet the maximum 2MB size, and you don't have software on your computer or devise to resize them, you can use a free image resizer website such as picresize.com. If you need to rename your photos you can name them on picresize after you have resized them - simply click on the 'save to disk' button and title your photo with your surname and the page number.

Photos too small? Unfortunately if your photos are smaller than 50kb I won't be able to use them for your book - the print quality is unlikely to be good enough and your photo will be pixelled and distorted.

How long will it take before I receive my book? It usually takes 5 working days to design and make your book. UK delivery via courier is free of charge and will take 3-5 working days. If you need faster delivery you can upgrade to 1st class recorded (signed for) delivery which takes approx 1-2 working days, or Next Day Delivery (Monday-Friday). Overseas orders are sent via International Tracked & Signed Delivery only, and delivery takes approx 3-7 working days.

Can I create a book with my own artwork rather than the existing designs? Yes, I'm more than happy to use your own artwork. Please get in touch to discuss what you have in mind.

Can my baby chew the book? It isn't advised that you leave your child to chew the book. Please note that the books are handmade and won't withstand rough handling. If the pages get damp or sticky you can wipe them clean with a damp cloth. The books aren't waterproof but they are water resistant, so they will stand up to dribbling!

Can I add extra pages? Yes, you can! The standard books have 12 pages (6 leaves), and you can add extra leaves up to a maximum total of 12 (giving 24 pages). Adding an extra leaf gives you 2 extra pages each time. Each leaf would cost an additional £3.50 – so, for example, if you wanted a 10 leaf (20 page) book the cost would be £27.95 + £14 (eg, £3.50 x4) = £41.95. If you would like to add extra pages please contact me to let me know as I'll need to take your order manually via email rather than through the website.

Any other questions? Please don't hesitate to get in touch!
