How are personalized books different from ordinary books?

Personalized Children's Books are different from ordinary children's books because the story is actually about a particular child. His or her name, along with other personal information is blended into every story on almost every page. Children will actually want to read these stories because the story is about them.

How are Create-A-Book series books made?

Information about the child is entered into the program. We print out the story using a laser printer on high quality paper. The printed pages are integrated with the full color illustration pages. The pages are then bound with a patented binding system. The books are assembled with easy wipe-off hard covers.

How many pages are the Create-A-Books?

Each book is approximately 36 pages, 18 pages of text, 18 pictures. Specialty titles such as The Wedding book and Retirement book are a few pages less and include special plastic sleeves for your pictures.

How big are the Create-A-Books?

Each book is approximately 7 by 8 1/2 inches.

How are the sticker books made?

The Disney lift the flap books are personalized with permanent white stickers that are placed over the original text in the books. The story is in narrative form. The child does not become one of the Disney characters

The Presto books are personalized with matching stickers that blend right in with the illustrations.

Our Pop-up books are 6 pages and are personalized with stickers. Some stories are in narrative form and some your child is part of the story

How are the CDs made?

All our music was sung live, one name at a time was recorded with the highest professional standards in a state of the art recording studio. We burn the CD with your child's name on high quality CDs and print the labels on a laser printer.

What ages are these CDs suitable for?

Most of our CDs are suitable for young children ages 0-8 years old (especially for toddlers and pre-school age children). Our New Sports Broadcast CDs are great for any age. Even Adults!

I don't see my child's name in the CD name list.

If you can't find the exact spelling of the name you are looking for, look for a phonetic match. Make sure to check on different spelling possibilities when searching for a name! (Example: Kurt or Curt). Check for the name on a different CD. Each CD title has its own list of names.

Do you ever get more names for the CDs?

Right now we have over 6000 names available. This continues to grow regularly. If we don't have your name we can request it from the company and they will do their best to get it as soon as possible.

I don't spell my child's name the same way it is in the CD name list.

If the spelling of your name is different than what is in our list, that's okay, we can spell the name any way you like. (Example: Katelin, Kaitlyn, or Catelyn)

My Child's Name is pronounced differently than the normal way. Can I still order a CD?

If your name can be pronounced in different ways, give us the correct phonetic spelling so we can make sure it is sung correctly. (Example: Alana / uh-LAY-nuh or Alana / uh-LAH-nuh).

I got my CD and my child's name is not pronounced correctly.

If your name can be pronounced in different ways and you didn't give us the correct phonetic spelling we had no way of knowing the correct pronunciation. This is not our fault. Be sure we know the correct pronunciation before we make the CD. We will not be responsible if the name is not pronounced correctly if you did not fill in the pronunciation field.

I have my own personalized gift business. Do you make websites for others?

Yes! I have had a lot of compliments on my website design and it was recommended that I start offering them to other dealers, so I have. You can get more information about my web design package here. My Personalized Books and Gifts Web Design Package
