Each guest is given their very own guestbook page to complete the front and back side. If it is a wedding guestbook, the page is usually presented to guests while they are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new Bride and Groom at the reception. Depending on the type of Guestbook Store guestbook you wish to use at your event, there are different ways to set it up to assure you will receive the most completed pages from your guests.
For our original guestbook many people have a dedicated guestbook table and guestbook attendant. This table should be in a common area visible to guests, preferably near the entrance. The attendant should encourage guests to fill the pages out at their leisure and tell them where to return the completed pages. Another manner to distribute the pages is by placing them at reception dinner tables. You can simply place one page at each setting or several pages in a group at the center of the table.
For our Photo Guestbook, there are two recommended times when it is best to take photos of your guests for their guestbook pages. While your guests are entering the reception area, take a photo of them as they arrive and hand a page to your guests to complete at their leisure. Another method is to have a guestbook attendant walk around to each table taking photos of your guests and handing them a guestbook page with their photo attached. In both instances, have markers placed at each table for your guests to complete the pages.
Regardless which guestbook you choose, we highly recommend appointing someone as guestbook attendant to answer questions for your guests, hand out blank and collect completed pages. Which ever method you choose, DO NOT leave the pages in the album and expect people to wait in line to complete them.
Yes! You will be surprised who will fill out the most creative pages! This guestbook is an excellent way for each guest to share a personal greeting or wish that may have otherwise gone unsaid.
We have always worked hard to offer our guestbooks at reasonable, affordable prices while providing the highest quality product of its kind. A complete guestbook starts as low as $26 and the total price is calculated based on your preferences. In addition, each order comes with a free personalized titling page.
When trying to determine how many guestbook pages to purchase, we recommend purchasing 75% of the total number of persons attending your event as some guests will fill their pages out as a family or couple. If you plan to place them at each place setting or have helpers to pass them out to each guest, we recommend ordering one page per person. If you find you need more than 300 pages, contact us so we can prepare the best guestbook solution for you.
For the Photo Guestbook, each book will hold a maximum of 80 completed pages with a photo affixed to each page. Since couples and families will most likely have photos taken and complete the page together, there is enough space for 120-150 guests in each book. In the original Guestbook with the drawing rather than the photo, 100 pages can fit into the guestbook album. This will be enough space for approximately 150-200 guests.
Guestbook Store pages are printed on a high quality 80lb card stock that contains 30% recycled post-consumer fiber. Pages are also acid and lignin free for great quality that does not deteriorate.
Since these pages were designed with flexibility in mind, they can accommodate many different types of photographs taken from a digital or standard camera! Ideally, the pages are designed to suit a 4" x 6" size photograph, they will also suit a Polaroid 600 or 500 size photograph easily.
The most effective way to attach photos is by using an acid-free double-stick tape. This tape is sold at many scrapbooking specialty stores, as well as Michaels, Target etc. The Photobook pages do NOT come with photo squares or slits in the paper.
The guestbook pages are printed on 80lb card stock, which means they retain a high opacity to prevent each side from bleeding through to the other. We have found that Fine Tip Markers work very effectively on Guestbook Store pages. Make sure your markers are not permanent. Ball point pens are an option, although we have found that guests get very creative with markers.
The actual dimensions of the guestbook pages are 8.5"x10" and an album measures 9"x11."
To ensure your satisfaction with receiving the highest quality guestbook from us, the pages and albums are only sold as a set.
