I love turning my photos into gifts to share our moments with our friends and family (isn't that the point of taking all those pictures anyway?) I recently had the pleasure of ordering some custom-designed photo gifts from Paper Coterie. I usually don't like the graphic design of baby/family albums found at photo gift sites but these were beautifully designed and just my style. They have traditional styles as well as very design-forward templates. The quality far exceeded the cost.
And I finally got to publish those newborn photos I had taken of Baby D almost two years ago!
Even the hubbers - who rarely comments on crafts - loved the photobook and the growth chart. The photobook pages were very study and had a matte/glossy finish (durable yet attention-grabbing). The growth chart was (unexpectedly) suitable for the high-traffic kitchen area where Baby D eats. Its made of re-positional fabric and was super easy to adhere to our wall.
I also ordered a journal and since it comes with 80 pages, I thought it would be a thin little thing. It wasn't! The pictures on the cover were put on by magic. Seriously. I'm not sure how they did it but it is professional grade - it looks like I ordered a pallet of these to give out to friends and family.
Adding to the awesomeness is that the company is a group made up largely of women. They're a team of friends, girlfriends, wives, mothers, aunts and co-workers.
Buy It! Visit their site for all of the cute stuff I ordered and more. (FYI: Firefox is the best browser for designing on their site)
