Bigger is betterWe’ve all heard the saying “bigger is better” and even in the world of photobooks that’s true. But when we talk about big at RapidStudio in the photobook business, we’re talking about the heart - not the product. Creating, printing and owning photobooks are all about the memories, it’s all about treasuring your most precious moments and the people close to your heart.
Small is beautifulWe don’t talk enough about our Mini Books (or brag books as we like to refer to them). As in life, we tend to overlook the simplest and smallest treasures and we forget that these small things have their own special kind of awesome. The Mini Book is no exception.
Our most popular photobook must be the A4 Landscape Hardcover. It’s just the right size to store on a shelf, to leave on your coffee table or to flip through. It’s not bulky, it doesn’t take up a lot of space but it’s not too small either. It’s near perfect. I say near perfect because it lacks in something that the Mini Book brings to the table. You can’t carry it with you everywhere you go. Well, unless you go everywhere with a burlap sack, briefcase or laptop bag that has space for all your favourite things, including a photobook of your godchild, your favourite niece or your beautiful partner.
If you’re anything like me, you don’t carry a back pack stuffed with your favourite items everywhere you go, but you might have space for a teeny tiny memento. A keepsake, a reminder, a cute little something to peek at when you’re away from your screensaver or a little photobook that holds your favourite moments of the last year when you’ve had to move them from your phone because it ran out of space for the 5th time.
Now, here's a great ideaWhen you’re going away on a business trip where you will be away from your loved ones for more than a day. In those moments you miss them the most and if you’re scared of flying like I am, need them the most. In those few short minutes that could seem like a lifetime, where your phone needs to be switched off during take-off and landing, you will have a small photobook with you chock full of love and precious moments to help take your mind off of the unpleasantness of flying.
1 Year's Memories in your pocketA Mini Book starts with 12 pages and may grow to 24. That’s very easily a full year’s memories in a very small package. They’re inexpensive and quick to put together. You can gift them to your loved ones or you could make them to keep in your own handbag or shirt pocket.
The Mini Book's most significant advantages
- It’s inexpensive
- You may carry it anywhere
- It won’t run out of space (like your iPhone)
- The battery won’t die when you flip through it too much
- It can assist with overcoming or at the very least, coping with various phobias such as the following:
- Aviophobia (the fear of flying)
- Monophobia (the fear of being alone)
- Athazagoraphobia (the fear of being forgotten or forgetting)
