Personalized Photo Notepads for Holiday Gift Giving

By Isabel Kallman

Pinhole Press Photo Pads

I’ve just finished placing seven orders for these personalized photo notepads for my family for the holidays with my husband’s hard-earned cash.

Pinhole Press contacted me a couple of weeks ago offering me a free item from their photo gift shop. They wanted me to try out their personalized service. One glance at the beautifully-designed products and I knew that I was interested. Little did I realize that I would fall in love with the ease of the process and ordering service and the quality of the paper. Plus, my initial order arrived lickety-split.

The photo notepads you see above are identical. There’s one photo of my son on the cover and then one of my husband with my son on the 50 inner pages. This is a gift for my husband. In fact, I couldn’t wait– I was too excited– and gave it to him last night. He was blown away by it. If you look closely you may see that at the top of the inner page I inscribed “priorities” since my husband is always using random hotel notepads to write his daily to-do lists. This is a much better choice, I think.

Once I find something I love, I want to buy one for everyone. Thus, the large recent order I mentioned above.

My only fear with giving these as gifts is that my family members will think they’re too beautiful to write on. That’s why I didn’t mind the two-order minimum per each personalized photo notepad. If they must, they can always “save” one and use the other.

Now, I can’t buy one for all of you, dear readers. However, I do have a nifty discount code to offer! Just use the “PinholePressVIP” at checkout for 10% off (I used it on my order this morning and it works).

Be sure to check out Pinhole Press’s other great offerings like holiday cards, photo calendars, photo journals, photo books, and GORGEOUS day planners.
