Ideas & Inspiration
Quick Tips for Documenting- First off, don’t stress. It is our goal to make documenting simple and easy while capturing the moments that matter most. When to document? We made sure you are able to fill out pages at any point in time. Record at the end of each school year, end of middle school, or years later. To help remember important moments or pictures to add, use the box the book came in to compile keepsakes and moments to spark documentation in the future
We’ve got Spirit, yes we do! – All customization combinations look great for a childhood memory book but you can also create a book that coordinates to your school colors and shows your school spirit! We made sure to have the most popular school colors for all customizable components.
Some of our favorite school color combinations include:
- Cardinal leather cover, white grosgrain ribbon, and opal plaque
- Marine leather cover, white grosgrain or navy stripe grosgrain ribbon, and opal or navy plaque
- Green cloth cover, white grosgrain or green/blue plaid ribbon, and opal or navy plaque
- Purple cloth cover, white grosgrain or yellow grosgrain ribbon, and opal or yellow plaque
Favorite Memories – The Favorite Memories Insert Pages are a quick and easy way to document an event, trip, special occasion, or just about any memory without having to give it too much thought or effort.
