Printing Books for Babies?
September 21, 2008 6:34 PM   Subscribe

Are there any online services that will allow me to print custom books that can withstand the awesome destructive force of a small child?

I would like to be able to print up custom storybooks and photo albums for our kids (< 3 years). I'm trying to find someplace that will custom print board books and/or laminated photo albums that can will withstand small hands, teeth, and curiosity. I realize that these make good DIY projects (and I've made laminated photo books thanks to the power of Kinkos), but I'd love a point-and-click solution, too.

I have done a search for the same thing, I wanted to do board books or those crinkly fabric books for my son. I have a couple of links, but I haven't tried out either one yet, so no idea how good the final products are! LifeTimez does board books and MyCustomStory.com allows you to upload photos and make your own story.

It looks like LifeTimez only inserts photos into their own layouts (which are universally bad). I'm not sure exactly what MyCustomStory does; it looks like neither will print up arbitrary designs. Poo. I'm going to email both just to see if I'm missing something.

Maybe print with waterproof ink on Teslin which is based on Tyvek, This map supplier stocks it in 8.5x11 sheets i guess you can get it for laser printers too.
