Millions of parents save their children's artwork, sometimes for decades. Many frame some pieces but framing even one piece of art can easily cost over $200.00. Now for the same price of framing one piece of art, you can preserve all the artwork in a beautiful, timeless art portfolio book that quickly becomes the most talked about coffee table book in your home.
Truly Custom Books
Never before could parents take their children's artwork and transform it into a professionally crafted, hardcover book and by streamlining the custom book creation process, Artimus Art is able to offer parents an opportunity to create a true custom art book at a a fraction of the cost of hiring their own graphic designer and bindery house. Our oversized books measure 11" x 11" with truly custom covers. (Not dust jackets) Our books pages are printed with the art image on the right hand page and art title and descriptions, on the left. For books with no titles and descriptions, the images are printed in spreads, meaning that artwork is printed on both left and right sides. For books with less than 50 art images and no text, the art images are printed only on the right hand page with the left page blank. Parents can create a dedication page which is positioned after the cover page. Create the dedication page when you customize your book by uploading a fine quality photo and entering the dedication. Our book quality far surpasses that of any DIY on line "photo" bookmaker and rivals books by the finest bindry houses anywhere.
Since there are several steps to the process of creating our art books, customers are notified via email during each phase of the process.
After a book package is purchase on our website, an art collection box is sent out the next business day and customers receive an email indicating the box was shipped.
When the artwork arrives at our facility, customers are notified that it's arrived safe and sound and after the artwork is scanned and posted to the web gallery, customers receive an email indicating that the images are posted. Once art images are posted to the web galleries, customers are instructed to log on and customize their books and receive their final email when the completed books is shipped along with original artwork. Customers know exactly what stage their books are in by our unique stage-by-stage process information method.
Titles and Descriptions
Inside your web gallery, you can customize your book if just a few easy steps. As of March 1, 2012, art titles and descriptions printed in your book is included in all packages. Customers can go into the gallery and give each piece of artwork a title and description. Choose to included them in your book by checking the box "Include Art Titles & Descriptions from Web Gallery" box when you customize your book. You may choose also not to include them in your book but rather just use them to send your art images from your gallery as e-greetings. Children love to create names for their artwork and describing what the artwork means to them. It also allows kids to remember their art experience when they're older.
Collecting your art
We understand how difficult it is to actually gather your stored artwork together. We make it as easy as possible. Choose your book package and we'll send you an art collection box the next business day. All you must do is just transfer the art from your box to ours and count the number of art pieces. The box includes instructions, order forms for extra book pages or extra oversized artwork and also includes a large plastic re-sealable bag for each child's artwork. Returning the box is a snap with the UPS shipping label. All original artwork is returned along with your book.

Our art collection box is big enough to accommodate art for several children and each book package purchased receives an individual oversized resealable plastic bag to separate the artwork.
