Book Process Detail

CelebrateAHero.com presents you with the Internet’s first group greeting gift book. Our process makes it easy for groups or organizations to celebrate the lives of people they love, admire, and respect.

Use this easy-to-follow format to help you along your way. You may click on any underlined topic for a more detailed description:

Start a Book:

You select the type of occasion and name the person or persons being celebrated. We will create a book including a paper design and several headings that match the occasion. These are only suggestions. You may use the book we create for you and save it to your account or you may make changes at any time.

Select a Paper Design:

You may choose from a wide range of design formats to obtain the “look and feel” that best matches the occasion or event being celebrated. Use our designs for printing from a color printer onto regular printer paper or print your gift book on your own pre-printed paper.

Customize your Title Page:

Customize your Title Page by changing the title, adding a date, and/or uploading a graphic or photograph.

Select an Album Cover:

Select one of our exquisite handmade or leather covers to protect and add beauty to your gift book. Our special screw-binding will accommodate any size book. Covers add the final touch to make your personal gift book into a lifetime treasure.

Select Page Headings:

Each occasion has suggested headings associated with it. These are designed to help prompt your guests to make comments. You have the option to select alternate prewritten headings, edit our suggestions, or create headings of your own.
