Give CherishBound a try!

Want to give CherishBound’s bookmaker a try? For a limited time, you can use this trial account:
Goto: www.cherishbound.com
Login: focusonthestory@gmail.com password: cbtrial
Once you’ve logged in, go to the publishing center (under customers)
Here you can play with any books in progress, or create a new project.
To use the book maker to print your scrapbook pages, you would first need to save them at 8.5x11 size, but no more than 6MB (jpeg, tiff, or png). Once you have your new project open, go to the pages tab.
Select the page you want to load. Go to the templates tab. Select the full bleed page template (it is the 5th one down –the 3rd one down is a full page bleed with page numbers automatically added)
Drag it onto the book page (twice, once on each side)
Now go to the images tab. Click on the little green + to add your own images. Once the images have uploaded, click and drag to drop them on the page.
Then repeat with pages 4-5, and so on.
If you have any questions, the ? near the bottom links to a great visual help system, or you can email me.

If you decide you want to print a book with CherishBound, send me an email: focusonthestory@gmail.com and I will get the payment/printing coupon information to you. Once you purchase a printing certificate, I will help you set up your OWN personal account and provide you with my personal phone number so you can get your questions answered promptly.
So what does it cost?
Base price for 8.5x11 with 50 pages is $61 (glossy pages)
Hard binding is $17 (required on landscape, but I ALWAYS recommend it)
Shipping is approximately $5
Additional pages are $1/side up to 140 page limit per book

Are there every discounts or specials? YES! About once a month there is a “Five-buck Friday”. That means hardcover binding is only $5 for all books (original submissions and re-orders) ordered on that day. I have no advance notice—I usually find out on Thursday evening. So get your book ready to go, then let me know if you are watching for a Five-Buck Friday and I’ll be sure to let you know.
I don’t know how well having multiple people trying this account will work, but it is the only way I know to let you try-before-you-buy. Please do not abuse the privilege, or the account will be closed.
