31  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Misc. Gift Idea Brain Blockage / Mom's 50th.... making a book on: August 10, 2007 12:23:09 PM
Hello all..
My mom is turning 50 this year (end of October, it's approaching quickly!). It doesn't bother her too much, which is good. My brother and I wanted to do something out of the ordinary for her, so we decided we would make her a book.

Anyway, I just ordered customized postcards to send to all of her friends/family asking them to send either me or my brother notes, photos, stories, etc. to include in the book. Our plan is to scan all of these into electronic form and then lay out the pages one by one (luckily we both have experience with Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, etc.)

Does anyone have any tips or ideas for this process (or for what to include the book in general), OR does anyone have any recommendations for a site that can print and bind this all into a book? I know Kodak, Shutterfly and Flickr have options to make photo books... I was also looking into MyPublisher, but of course, those would limit our design possibilities to the capabilities of the accompanying software. I'd like to be able to add embellishments to the pages and write captions/stories on some of them.

TIA for your help!!!
