Create the best keepsake gift filled with not only memories but the instructions to recreate favorite dishes those memories are attached to. To meet the growing demand for custom cookbook orders for small families and friend groups we have created the Keepsake Cookbook collection available for a limited time. Order as few as 12 books and include up to 90 recipes enjoying the benefits of free typing and formatting of recipes, a professional quality cover and dividers.
Simply collect your recipes and sort them into categories. You may have up to 8 dividers. Our suggested divider list is:
- Appetizers, Beverages & Dips
- Soups & Salads
- Breads & Rolls
- Vegetables & Side Dishes
- Main Dishes & Meats
- Cookies & Candies
Divider title names can be changed and you do not have to include all 8. Many family cookbooks only have 6 or 7 dividers.
Recipes can be submitted in the following ways:
Mailed Paper Submission – Mail your recipes to Cookbook Specialists along with the order form. Make copies of your recipes and send us the copies as these will not be returned. Keep each category separated by clips or in individual envelopes. We also prefer you number the recipes so we know the order they go in to the book.
Emailed Submission – Speak with one of our Customer Service representatives on options for emailing either a file or photos of your recipes.
Mailed Electronic Submission – We can accept recipes on a flash drive so if you have them in a Word Document or images of each of the recipes we can provide guidance for placing the files on a flash drive so our typist can easily type them into the book in the correct order.
Recipes can be handwritten we just ask that you take a moment to print any recipe authors names since signatures are hard to read. Recipes will be typed in our standard format using our suggested abbreviations in a non-continued recipe format.
Design selections to choose from:
Recipe Design – You can select from two different recipe designs and either standard font size (10 point) or large print (12 point). For books with large print there is a limit of 60 recipes allowed. Books are limited to 100 pages so we recommend avoiding long stories added to the recipes as this will mean some recipes will need to be removed.
Covers – Select from one of our 5 popular pre-designed covers. The Family Favorites Designer Frame has a space to allow for you to include a photo in either portrait or landscape. Photos can be emailed or a copy mailed with the recipes. Covers are printed on cardstock and the outsides are coated making it easy to wipe them off and protects them from sticky fingers and spills.
Dividers – Choose one of the 3 pre-designed dividers designs and from our list of paper colors. Dividers are printed in black ink on standard bond paper.
Binding – Books are bound with Spiral PlastiKoil binding. This durable binding allows books to lay flat when in use or even fold over on themselves like a spiral notebook.
Additional – Included is a FREE title page, publication number, table of contents and an alphabetical index by category. You can also have 5 free personal pages starting on the back of the table of contents. Personal pages can be used to include a message about why you created the book, a dedication, memorial, brief history, favorite cooking tips, or we can provide lined notes pages.
Once your book is created we provide you with a free PDF to review and proofread. Books take approximately 2 to 4 weeks to complete from start to finish.
Shipping – Is based on current carrier rates and is in addition to the book price.
Reorders – Are available at current pricing at the time the reorder is placed. You can contact us for a reorder quote at any time after you receive your books.
Contact – Our customer service people are happy to answer any questions you may have and we encourage you to call or email. 1-800-838-1679 or firstname.lastname@example.org
