How long does it take you to complete an album?
I generally attempt to get an album consisting of 60 pages completed within two month's time. From the time I receive your e-mail approving my preliminary plans for your first page, to the scanning of your last completed page for you to view. I will not exceed three months for completion. This requires you to check your e-mail frequently to approve layout plans. A quick response to layout ideas is necessary to keep from encountering delays in the completion of your scrapbook.
Obviously, the time needed for smaller projects is significantly less. It generally takes me one and a half days to complete a page. If you have requested 10 pages, I would estimate 15 days for completion.
Journaling to me is what makes a photo album a scrapbook. I also feel your handwriting, no matter how horrid, is a tremendous asset to the scrapbook. That said, I too love those pretty hand written fonts.
You will receive an e-mail of my plans for each page. With each page I give you the opportunity to e-mail me any journaling you wish to be included. At your request I can also provide an empty space in which you can hand write your own journaling once you receive the album.
There is no additional charge for journaling.
I also accept personal checks made payable to Tracy Austin. I will begin creating your album once your deposit check has cleared the bank. Upon completion of the album it will be shipped once your check for the total remaining bill has also been cleared.
PayPal is an
account-based system that lets anyone with an e-mail address securely send
and receive online payments using their credit card or bank account. I,
the recipient of the charge, never have access to your account number.
Simply e-mail me your wishes to get started on a custom made scrapbook and that you are finding it difficult to know where to start. We can set a time in which I can ring you at your convenience and together we can come up with an album theme in which to get started.
there you have difficulty selecting and editing your photographs, you
can mail me all your photos in order for the album theme and I can make
the selection for you with your approval. In my e-mail of my preliminary
plans for the page I will include the photos that will be included and
those that I will exclude. You can always voice your opinion on what
photos to include throughout the creative process.
I do not offer a lower price for providing me with supplies. It is difficult
to plan a layout when you are limited to specific supplies, paper, stickers,
etc. Of course, I will always include any memorabilia you wish to have
included in the album.
Certainly. To determine your cost, I would charge $10.00 per single sided page. Your deposit would be 50% of that figure.
I prefer the 12 x 12 albums, I would complete an album of smaller size
if that is what you have started with.
I have collected many ideas for my scrapbook via magazines and the Internet.
If I either e-mail you a scan of the idea or mailed it to you, would
you be able to recreate it?
