5 tips on perfecting your Heritage Album

Mother’s Day 2016 is coming up - have you found the perfect keepsake for that special woman in your life? Moms, grandmothers, aunts, and any other matron deserve a sentimental gift that reminds them of their families, and heritage albums offer the perfect way for you to preserve special memories for a lifetime. 

A heritage album is a visual presentation of your family tree, but you can customise it to make your matriarch smile. 

Heritage albums can be made quickly and offer a premium look and feel that she’ll love. Here are 5 tips for making a Mother’s Day heritage album: 

1. Ask Family for their Photos

Talk to your family to see if they’ve got any pictures from your ancestors. Oftentimes a relative will have kept family photos that have been handed down, and these can make a great addition to a Mother’s Day heritage album. 

2. Scan Old Photographs

Your old family pictures will be right at home in her heritage album! Use your scanner to upload them to your book. 

3. Search Online for Family Pictures

If you visit an ancestry website, you might be surprised to find some of your old family photographs posted there. These can be uploaded to the heritage album! 

4. Add Dates and Details

By adding a short description of each photograph, including dates, names, and places, you can make mom's heritage album even more special. 

5. Customise the Album Style and Font

Aside from adding special photos and details to the heritage album, consider customising a unique font and one of the style choices from our Rapidstudio software to further accent the uniqueness of the album!

By using these tips, you’ll be well on your way to creating the perfect Mother’s Day gift! If you’ve got siblings or other family members who want to share with costs, that could give you an opportunity to band together on a Mother’s Day gift that will be treasured forever. Also look out for our specials and promotion discounts and you can also save.

Creative Ideas for a Post-Holiday Photobook

Here’s how to turn your holiday photos into a creative, must-keep photobook.

Returning home after a holiday can leave you with the post-travel blues. As you wash your bikini, shake the sand out of your sneakers, and try to revive the house plants you haven’t watered for two weeks, you begin to long for the lazy days of a vacation.

But, just because you’re home, doesn’t mean the holiday fun is over. Gather your memories up and create a photobook of your trip. Putting it together is a fun way to keep the holiday feeling alive, plus you can look back on it, to get yourself ready for next December (or April. We’re coming for you, public holidays).
