    A long time ago I started a thread asking for opinions on a crazy idea I had for thank you cards (I get these crazy ideas in my head all the time:)  At the time I wanted to create a mini magazine. Here's my original thread: thank you cover.jpg

    I did these through Mypublisher.com which is super, super easy to use!   All you do is drag and drop your pictures where you want them.  The print quality was absolutely AMAZING and stunning!  The colors were vibrant, the pages were premium and high quality.  It looked really professional.  A lot of people thought I got these as part of my photographer package.  I LOVE mypublisher.com (you would think I'm a spokesperson for them :) 

     

    Each book is small - the size is 5.75 x 7.75 (if you want a visual, just take a piece of paper and fold it in half - it's about that size).

     

    The cost for a booklet with 20 pages is $9.99 BUT they have these great promotions all the time so you can get a really good discount.  In my case, I took advantage of a buy one, get one free promotion so each book came out to less than $5.  I sent one to each couple. 

     

    If you think that's too much money, they have a new even smaller booklet now which is only $2.49. 

    This is something you can only pull off with a DW because it's less people so you can include pictures of everyone in the book AND you won't break the bank sending one to everyone. 

     

    Hope this inspires someone to do something different.  I wanted to really find a way to thank my guests in a unique way because not only did they take their personal time and money to travel far, they also gave us the best gift of all by giving us a week that we will never forget for the rest of our lives.  It was worth the $100 bucks or so I spent on them.

        Those are soo nice.  I am not surprised all of your guests called and raved about them.

         

        I am not sure my fiance would be willing to go for it, but I may just have to sneak around and do this on my own!

         

        And congratulations on your wedding - it looks like your group had an amazing time.

          Thank you!  I just realized that for some reason the picture of the cover page has some weird image over it so I'm re-posting it..

                    Wow this is amazing!!! You did a wonderful job! I am so stealing this idea- but I will probably make the smaller books! How much did the books you made cost you to send in the mail?  Thankyou so much for sharing!
