Books for Friends and relatives around the world
A few years ago, we bound a thesis for a graduate student who now lives in Milwaukee. She called on us to make a custom brewing notebook as a gift for her husband. Her sister in Indianapolis was so impressed that she had us make a leather covered barbeque recipe notebook for her husband. We wouldn’t be surprised if eventually the husbands contacted us for custom books to give in return. A custom made book is a very thoughtful present.
Recently, a grandmother had us turn a story about rabbits in her garden into a colorful storybook for her grandson’s first birthday. “He is living in Australia, and I want him to know a bit about our life in America!” she said proudly.
Last year, we bound over 400 pages of emails between a gentleman in the U.S. and a lady in Brazil into a fine book with a surprise ending – an engagement ring and a wedding proposal. We were very happy to see the wedding photos the couple emailed to us from Brazil.
