THE BOOK COMPANY
Artimus art launched in 2008 by Dana, who having three kids and a very busy schedule, thought turning her kids' precious artwork into a book was a great idea. She didn't have the heart to toss it but wanted to preserve it. So when her kids arrived home with arts and crafts projects her kids made, there was a purpose to the madness. "Deciding what to keep and what not to keep became easier because I'd only keep what I'd want in the book".
Now, with over fifteen years in the industry, there is a reason that Artimus Art is the #1 provider of child art books, as well as offering kid art books, memorabilia books, and even family cookbooks.
We started making mainly kids' art books but we had folks who wanted to create a book of items that have collected over the years. Things that they don't have the heart to toss.
These things are not photos, (well, sometimes), not kid art, but rather things like invitations, announcements, letters, diplomas, newspaper clippings....meaningful items that have invoke memories of a life well lived. It's hard to part with some things and having them reproduced into a book makes it much easier.
Often times they are items of loved ones lost or of a life well lived. It's a beautiful thing to turn them into a book that will preserve the memories and allow you to part with the originals.
We call these books Digital Scrapbooks and fall under our "Concierge" product pages where you'll find more information and pricing.
Our mission is give busy parents an easy way to preserve kids artwork. Few parents can toss their kids art and tend to store it, literally for decades. Now they can turn it into a book and toss the originals with no guilt.
F. A. Q. 's
How does the concierge service differ from the DIY?
Creating high quality photos of artwork is a challenge but with the new iPhone cameras and editing features, it's possible to get decent photos of art for the DIY. However, our Concierge service creates professionally reproduced images. The difference is the quality and integrity of the art reproduction file that gets printed. It's decent art photos vs incredible art reproductions.
How fast do your books ship?
Once the bookbuilder is submitted, you can expect the book to ship in about 2 weeks.
Can you do multiple books?
