My beautiful hippie friend over at Blogging from the Boonies has made me privy to yet another awesome goodie to send to our Compassion Kids.
HotPrints will let you print 4 free picture books a month. You do have to pay 2.99 shipping for each book, which technically makes them not free. But still makes them a hella good deal.
I ordered just one the first time, as an experiment. I wanted to make sure the quality of the print was good before I committed to shipping more than one.
For reasons I’m not sure of, it took the first book a really long time to finally make it to my doorstep. Like a month or more. I literally thought it wasn’t going to come, that it has gotten lost in the cracks somewhere. (And yet I didn’t bother contacting hotprints because I’m lazy, it was only 2.99, and I didn’t care that much)
But it DID finally show up one day, to my surprise. And I loved it.
So I quickly went back to the site and ordered 4 more (since by then another month had rolled around). It works out pretty great for me, because I have 4 Compassion kids. I decided to keep the first one on hand to show people in case I get a chance to do some freelance advocating for Compassion letter writing in person. :)
And apparently, Hotprints just wants to keep me on my toes, because this time the books came within a matter of days. Surprising me again.
I designed them all differently. Hotprints has a ton of choices, and it’s really easy to drag and drop your design.
I made a soccer themed one for my little Brazilian Luan. Because what 6 year old in Latin America wouldn’t go gaga for futbol?
And I made various pretties for my girls.
There are 14 pages worth of pictures (and there are many different design choices for number of pictures per page, also. I went with 2 large pictures for every page) but the book it still very thin. Well within the quarter inch regulations for Compassion goodies.
I can’t WAIT to get these in the mail to my kids. They’re going to absolutely love them.
