I am doing this post because I met people while in Disney who asked how the book was made.
I created an autograph book for the boys during our Trip to Walt Disney World; well it was really created for me as they felt they were too old to stand in lines and meet the characters. I suggest that anyone who is planning a trip take the time to put together a personalized autograph book. Not only is good for your little ones, you also receive special attention with the characters. They were so excited when they saw their personalized autograph pages and it made meeting the characters much more special.
Here is how I created mines:
*I did not create any of the pages that were included in our autograph books. The wonderful people on the disboards created them for others to use. I just selected the pictures that I wanted included in my autograph book (On the disboards, they also have a running list of characters that you may see at the parks). I had the pictures printed out and then took them to Kinko’s to have them binded.
I lurked around on the disboards and found the creative people who post their pictures for everyone to use to make their Autograph books. Here is the link that will get you started. I have uploaded the images to Shutterfly and
you can view them here.
1. You find the pictures that you like
2. Right click on the picture
3. Save as: on your computer
-I put mine in a Disney file all on their own
4. Once I had enough of the pictures that I wanted. I uploaded them to Artscow (They run specials all the time. I was able to get 100 prints free) or you can upload them to any other photo sharing site (but you must be careful because some will not print because they are disney images or you can save them on a flash drive and print them at walgreens or walmart)
5. Make sure to print them out in a MATTE finish. (This way the characters can sign and the pages still look pretty)
6.Once you receive them, take all of your pictures, put them in the order you want (I placed mine in alphabetical order) and take them to kinos.
7. Kinkos cost around $5.00 to bind them for me.
