sahlink,

I believe you said you had these done at Staples. I looked into Staples & Office Depot and the price doubled compared to what you got them done for! Yikes! Please let me know where you got them done! Can you try to help me break it down price wise?

Anyone else, how are you or have you put them together?
Thanks!

OK, no problem.

First make sure you sign up for the Staples Rewards card, this will save you 10% on any printing/etc. Staples charges 49 cents per page to print colored paper. I brought in my own 28lb paper for them to use (Otherwise they charge loads more) I bought the paper at Staples a couple months ago and it worked perfect for this project. So I didn't count purchasing this paper in the project. I think that are about 23 pages to print (you do need to tell them exactly where the "pockets" will be if you are doing pockets because some of these pages are not printed back to back.

Secondly it was $2 per cut, for the edges (this is where it may get spendy?) He charged me 2 cuts. Now I couldn't figure out why he charged only two cuts seeing there were more. My luck!! Otherwise, if it was going to be alot for them to do this I was planning on taking them home and trimming them myself. Either using a paper trimmer or a sissors. Ask them how much if would be before you have them do it.

Lastly, binding and covers. This is where it gets fuzzy. (I don't have my receipt and don't rememebr exactly) I think maybe $2 to bind, and $1 for cover $1back??



23 pages x ......$0.49 = $11.27 x 2books=$22.54
Cuts (2) x$2= $4
Binding(2) x $2 = $4
Covers(4) x $1 = $4

minus - 10% off a portion

Should be around $30, plus tax for 2 books to print.



What kind of cost are you getting??

I love this, it is so pretty and well done. My dgs wants to do a journal when we go to WDW in Sept., and this is perfect. I am having a problem downloading it, I get it downloaded but I can't get it to do anything except be a slideshow. What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance for your help.

This is a PowerPoint document, so there is a capability to have a slideshow view. But there should be many options to view. Do you have PowerPoint on your computer? Is so, find the square-ish button on the lowerleft hand side, click that and select end show. Then it should take you back to the main PowerPoint program (simialr to MS Word and so on). Perhaps that is worth a try.

I really love your book and think that I am just going to have to borrow the idea. It could probably help at school with me taking her out for vacation. Perhaps she can get some credit for doing "homework" on vacation.
Anyway, we'll be going to Mickey's BarBQue. The picture will work, but how can I change the wording? I don't have powerpoint.

Also, can you explain how you did the pockets a little more? I'm just not very clear on that.

I'm working on a book, using power point. it is unbelievable simple. I'll be doing some Disneyland pages, but it's a slow process for me.. as work gets in the way.

Mine will cover the entire trip.. several national parks, ect.. I'll post it later, probably a week or two away, before book #1 (of three) will be done.

What would you like the wording to say? I will see if I can find a different clip art to go.
