“We asked EverPresent to put together a paper – meaning not digital -book for a family birthday and they did an excellent job. Gave good advice on size appropriate to the occasion: 10” x 10”, cover material, and layout. All of us were very pleased, recipient and giver alike. We also ordered digital copies of all the photos in order to have easily accessible photos from 60 years. Thanks to EverPresent we do now!”
Milestone Books for each big moment
Sometimes it’s a marathon – not a sprint. Lots of our favorite Photo Books are chronicles from the long road to success. From retirement bashes to New Year parties, consider a career highlight book or a year-in-review photo book for the finishing touch on these milestones.
What do babies, holidays and vacations have in common? They’re all top-notch excuses to make a milestone album. Don’t miss out on the chance to relive baby’s firsts, Christmas through the years, or those white-sand beaches from your tropical getaway. Your family will love these books!
The EverPresent Photo Book team has years of expertise in bringing your most precious moments to life. Customize your project with funny candid photos, scanned items like an employee-of-the-month plaque, or a dedication to the honoree. You can even use colors and graphics that match your grad’s alma mater or your child’s birthday theme. Consider the following when you plan your project:
- Who is the audience for your book project?
- Only use the very best photos – it’s a book, not a library
- Consider printing multiple versions of your book for friends, family and the guest of honor
- If you’re doing recaps, add captions! Your audience will want to know what they’re looking at.
- Decide on your overall theme from the beginning to make photo selection easier

Everything you need to know
about our photo book services
What if my best photo book material isn’t digital?
Have no fear. We offer professional scanning to include physical snapshots, film, and memorabilia in your project. For large family photo archives, we recommend our photo selection service to help you focus on the items that belong in your milestone book. We also offer advanced editing for aging photos to look their absolute best.
How does the design process work?
Most of our photo book projects start with scanning any photos or documents that aren’t already digital. You’ll get to meet with your consultant and designer to plan your custom photo album project before we begin. Along the way, you’ll review drafts of your book and provide feedback if you want anything changed. Once the final draft gets approval, we’ll have your book printed for your milestone event! Visit our general Photo Book design page for more details.
Are photos the only option for my book?
Absolutely not! Some of the best milestone photo books include a range of items like travel tickets, college acceptance letters, company plaques, and children’s artwork. Any visuals that symbolize your accomplishments can give your album the ultimate personal touch. We’ll even photograph 3D objects like graduation tassels or awards, and can tailor custom designs to fit your theme!
What about my home movies?
Lots of clients send us their home movies to get digitized along with their photos. We’ll transfer your video tapes and film reels to digital so you can preserve and enjoy those, too. If you’re celebrating a milestone but your favorite memories are all on video, we have more options for gorgeous custom design projects! Consider a wedding slideshow or video montage to blend photo, movies and music in a unique presentation for your retirement party or end-of-year celebration.
