The Nation's Leader in Quality Book Binding
& Post Press Services Since 1985

2 Nashua Court, Baltimore, MD 21221

It’s back to school time again, but for some families the tradition is going to be a little different this year. Instead of returning to high school, a new group of students is venturing off to colleges in far-flung locales for a new adventure.

One of our clients was looking for the perfect way to celebrate his daughter’s departure for college. He came up with a gift book idea that will certainly resonate with any moms and dads reading this blog. You’ve been warned, have a tissue or an excuse for those watery eyes ready. Keep on reading to see what he did!



Gift Book Ideas: Back to School




Dad wrote his daughter a book chronicling the first 18 years of her life through his eyes. He shared letters he’d written to his daughter, treasured memories of experiences of her childhood, and of course, plenty of photos.

The gift book was bound in a durable case binding and is truly one-of-a-kind. It’s a project that took 18 years in the making, and from another perspective, is just getting started. It’s certainly one of the most unique creative projects we’ve done and we’re proud to have been able to be a part of this father’s celebration of the life of his daughter.
