Being as sentimental as I am, I’m always looking for ways to preserve the most important memories in my life – as a daughter, wife, mother and friend. The people behind Paper Coterie think the same way. I was lucky enough to be able to review a Memory Box from their line of products.
Paper Coterie is new to the scene, having debuted in May 2011, but they are quickly making a name for themselves with their quality paper and fabric products. They offer a line of custom calendars, memory books, recipe cards, books, posters, growth charts and more. Creating an account on Paper Coterie is easy and free and gives you access to a number of photo, text and product editing tools that allow you to easily create a custom look for your special memories.
My oldest son, having turned three this past September, has just started a pre-school program. And even though he is only three weeks into his program, he’s already bringing home a lot of hand-made little projects. Since I know I’ll be saving everything he does, I chose the School Days Memory Box as a way to store all the little keepsakes of Matthew’s first year of school. I chose a picture from Matthew’s first day and uploaded it to my free account on the Paper Coterie website. From there I was able to easily edit my photo and the text I chose for the book. Ordering was quick and easy.
When my memory book arrived, I was instantly impressed on how well the book was packaged to protect it during shipping. To me, that says the company cares! The book was thick and sturdy, yet lightweight, and I knew it would hold up well with whatever finds its way inside – as well as look nice on display.
