Top Design Ideas that COST, and some options that don’t: In today’s economy, there are lots of suggestions devoted to producing a quality book with as little cost involved to the author as possible – this issue is no exception.  However, many family projects are the culmination of a lifetime of work, many times where the author has been setting aside funds for publication for years.  Additionally, as a labor of love, some families can’t put a price on such a keepsake.  This month we’d like to offer a few suggestions if “money is no object” – and ways to make the book look that way.

  • Have a sheet for each book that is the edition number.  Each book will be 1 or 100, 2 of 100, 3 of 100, etc. (more economical – have a page “_____ of 100” and hand number in the blank once you have books.)

  • Add a photo, document, notes, etc. CD to the book.  Printing black and white photos? Include the color on on CD, etc.  The CD is a cost saver due to the fact that you don’t have to pay for the color printing, nor printing for everything you can stuff on a CD.
