#mybonusprint January winner, Wendy Power, shares the inspiration behind her beautiful photo book.
From photo books and mugs to photo prints and wall art, we love seeing how you transform our products into something wonderfully unique. We’re always inspired by your creations and we think other people will be too! So, today the spotlight is shining brightly on you – here’s a look our #mybonusprint January winner and what she had to say about her bonusprint experience.
What inspired you to create this photo book?
The family history book is something I had wanted to do for a long time. I wanted to create a book so that the old photographs could be seen by all of the family and meanwhile keep the originals safe and sound; my Aunt and I have been researching our family history for the last ten years and one of the main reasons for doing the book was as a gift for her. I always use bonusprint because of the quality of the products and ease of using the software.
Can you tell us about the photos in this photo book?
The photos in the book start with our oldest photographs we have, dating late 1800s and I have also written some text to accompany the photos. It was a 100 page book as there was so much I wanted to put in it and the lay flat pages made the book even more robust to survive the years of page turning. The book features every member of our close family right up to the youngest member born in 2014.
Have you made any other photo products, or are your loyalties firmly entrenched in the photo book category?
I have been making photo books for years now as I’m also a very keen photographer. Books I’ve made include: Our new house build, our dogs first twelve months, numerous holidays books, my children’s first 18 years and special birthdays. I also do photo calendars every year, make my own photo Christmas cards, and create wall art.
So Wendy, what are you going to make with your voucher? (I have a strong suspicion already)
I will certainly use my voucher on another photo book… I love doing them! In this digital age a photo book enables other people to see your precious moments, without the risk of losing your photographs to a broken laptop.
Broken laptops are a sore point for me, let’s end there. Thanks for sharing your lovely story with us, Wendy.
