Don't worry - you're not being a pain. You can buy chipboard at any craft store such as Michaels, JoAnn Fabrics, or Hobby Lobby. You'll find it with the scrapbooking supplies. You can even order it from Amazon if none if those places are near you. I had two (very thick) books bound at Kinkos for around $10. Be sure to get the spiral binding (it looks like coated wire, but it's a type of plastic), and make sure they understand that you want it bound on the top and not the side. I'd love to see a picture when you get finished, if you get a chance to post one!

These are the books I made two years ago. We still use my DD's every time we go. But I did hers as a 5x7 and I carry it with a small clipboard - makes it easier for the characters to sign it. I also keep it in a large ziplock in my backpack to protect it from getting wet.

I triple hole punched on the sides (when I cut out the pages I left about 2" on the left side) and tied it all together with ribbon. This makes it easy to remove the pages AFTER the characters have signed them, so the book is not as heavy on subsequent trips...

Those are fabulous! I love the ribbon! I really admire all of you who scrapbook together your photos and autographs when you get home. I'm just going to keep my books as souvenirs of this trip and make new ones for my next trip (provided I can convince my DH to go again - fingers crossed!).

For those of you who are making autograph books for upcoming trips, there have been recent multiple sightings in the Animal Kingdom of Clarice (Chip & Dale's girlfriend) and Launchpad McQuack (from Ducktales).

Hi guys..I have 2 quick questions..
To those who had your pages printed as pictures and then put them on cardstock- what type of adhesive to you did you use??

For that same group that have used them in the parks..did you have a problem with smeering??

I printed mine as photos last year (matte finish) and doing so again this year. We used a clickable sharpie and no problems with smearing.
Cannot answer the question about what adhesive to use, I just put them in alphabetical order in a photoalbum.

Matte finish on the pictures seems to be a better surface for sharpies, as long as you wait a few seconds to let it dry. You don't have to mount the photos onto cardstock - you can put them in a photo album or even bind them as they are. If you want to mount them onto cardstock, use something heavy-duty such as scrapbooking adhesive. Good luck!

You are very welcome! My two boys love their books and this way we will always have them for personalized souvenirs!

How exciting - I'm looking forward to seeing your pics! Oh, and my DH thinks I've gone crazy too, but I'm OK with that!

Yes, if you want to get them bound rather than putting them in an album, the cardstock will make them sturdier. Just make sure to use heavy-duty glue or rubber cement so they don't come off, and leave a 1" margin at the top for the binding.
