If you have kids you probably know what it's like to plaster the fridge with their drawings. Or decorate Christmas trees with hand made ornaments of paper mache and glitter. There is also a good chance you have a stockpile of their artistic masterpieces in some hidden corner of your closet.
Imagine simply taking all those class projects, crayon drawings, and water colored flowers, and consolidating them into one place that doesn't clutter the house.
If that sounds ideal, let us introduce you to Artkive.
Art Meets Book
Who is Artkive?
An online company that has made saving your children's art a million times easier. You send it, they preserve it.
What does Artkive do?
They take professional grade photographs of kids artwork and then digitize them. Parents have online access to their children's work at any time. Once the pieces are photographed the images are used to create custom books as well. The books are printed and bound, with the assistance of Alexander's, then shipped to their perspective families to enjoy.
How do you do it?
From their site Artkive will send you a box with instructions on how to fill it up and mail it back to them with all your kids art. Easy as that. Artkive does most of the heavy lifting.
Of course Alexander's happily helps Artkive with the print and binding portion of their books.
