Make Your Own Autograph Books

I would love to make an autograph for my nephews using some Disigns I've seen here.

But how do you make them? I mean.. what do you use to create the actual books?

Thanks,

There is a step by step tutorial in post #1 of the Autograph Book Thread (link in my signature). Post #2 contains a list of characters that are currently appearing in the parks (I just updated it yesterday, so it is VERY recent). Ask at the end of the thread if you have questions along the way.

Music mouse I have a question I was looking to make one from shutterfly using the pages like you did on your last trip . What size book from shutterfly ? Every time I try I'm either cutting some of the pages off or it's giving me a image error . Thank you so much you helped me last year a lot and the books for my boys came out awesome!!!

I have made both 5x7 and 8x8 books. Don't worry too much about the low resolution errors. Their resolution requirements are for clarity of photographs, and our cards are more animation oriented so they should still be fine. I think Shutterfly has a template choice that lets you have a thin border around your image that you can use if you are having problems with your edges being cut off.

That image is sized for a 5x7 and will either distort or get cut off if you try to use it as an 8x8. You could choose a template for the 8x8 page that has a 5x7 cutout in the middle with color surrounding it. That would work. Whose DISign is it? Perhaps they could reformat it for you in some way. I could do it and personalize it, but I don't want to alter someone else's DISign (it's bad form).

I'm sorry, but I won't alter another DISigner's work without permission. If it is Milliepie's DISign, you will have to ask her to change it for you.

I printed my cards from Donatalie's photobucket page and possibly some from others...Printed them 5 x 7 with the actual card being 4 x 6. Left 1" margin on the top for the binding.

Laminated the book cover using chipboard in between the cover and a Mickety themed scrap paper.

MUSICMOUSE I ASKED MILLIPIE AND THIS WAS HER RESPONSE
I don't mind if she changes the format to fit. Especially since I can't help you with that part.
The thrread it is in is the Disney "2013" image so you can also see .

If you could and didnt'y mind i'd really appriciate it and so wouldn't my boys.
We are using Shutterfly and making a 8x8 book and would like this to fit the whole cover ove the book thanks agian....

THANKS A MILLION !!!

Beautiful photo printing results! I sent a group of autograph cards to Walgreen and had them printed as 4x6 photos and they are wonderful! Thanks to all of you who worked on these.

I have a question, though. I downloaded and saved all of these to my computer and it took a while. Photo bucket doesn't give the option to download multiple jpg's at once and while I'm thrilled with the results, it did get a bit tedious. I'm wondering if I could maybe put these on a Shutterfly Share Site so everyone wouldn't have to go through the long process and could just select multiple images and download. (If there is a better way to do it on Photo bucket, I missed it.) I would never take the work of the talented designers on this site and put it out there unless the designers were good with it, though. Just a thought . . .

This image is great! Can I get an autograph book that says Emmy's Autograph Book. Thank you so much. This is our 1st trip to Disney and I want to make it special. Anything else that you could put her name on would be greatly appreciated.
