Fondfolio allows you to create a beautiful collaborative book filled with sincere and heartwarming words from loved ones — a personal and thoughtful gift for someone special.
How it works
Enter some basic information about yourself and the recipient then select the type of event – this will determine the content of the questionnaire.
Share your unique questionnaire url with the friends and family of the recipient. You will be notified each time someone contributes.
When you’re ready, customize the design and place the order. We’ll begin production right away and will notify you as soon as it ships (gift wrapping included).
For life’s significant events
Times when giftcards, chocolates or flowers can’t communicate the depth of your gratitude for another’s existence
A lasting record of an individual life through thoughtful anecdotes and memories from their friends and family. Gift a reminder of good times had and those still to come.
For all their hard work, good spirits, and loyalty, a Fondfolio from their co-workers will remind them just how much their presence will be missed around the office.
What better gift to give a couple on their wedding day than the memories and wisdom from everyone near and dear, including those unable to attend.
Illness & Recovery
When a loved one is struck with illness or simply needs their spirits lifted, this gift will show them in a very tangible way, how much they are cared for.
Words of gratitude
My partner's birthday present was not only a gift for him, but surprisingly for everyone involved in writing to him. The process of answering the questions impacted us in a deeply emotional way. Everyone kept commenting on how special it was.
— Rylee, Milestone Birthday
My mom LOVED her Fondfolio. It was truly amazing. Your customer service, the packaging, and the idea in general! Thanks for making the moment special.
— Dalia, Just 'Cause
They loved it! They both cried tears of joy at the great memories that were shared with them. Thanks for making a great and beautiful gift for two of my favorite people. The Fondfolio site and process itself was seamless. I’ll be sure to tell my friends and family about your great service.
— Meghan, Moving
Having contributed to a friends Fondfolio in the past, we were thrilled to receive our own at our “post-elopement” party. The night was an emotional blur and went by way too fast. But the Fondfolio lets us relive those memories over again, and was truly the best gift.
— Amy & Scott, Wedding
Huge thank you for the birthday gift you made up and sent over for this young fella’s special day. It‘s not often you‘ll see me getting emotional but your book did – what an excellent idea! I was really touched so many people took the time & effort to have an input.
— Allan, Milestone Birthday
Probably the best gift I’ve ever had! It makes me laugh and cry – I feel so loved every time I read it.
— Vicky, Milestone Birthday
There was time for people to actually think about what they wanted to say, rather than being put on the spot with a pen and writing something trite or cliché. Now we have a whole bunch of really thoughtful words, including some stories we'd completely forgotten about!
— Kate & Chris, Wedding
I was given a Fondfolio as a 30th birthday gift from friends. The feelings I have reading this outpouring from those I love most will always be cherished.
— Ryan, Milestone Birthday
Fondfolios are made to order by hand. This ensures that each one is given the highest level of attention, matching the value of the words that fill its pages.
Printed on creamy 100% recycled speckletone paper and sewn using super tough waxed Irish linen thread. The folios are housed between durable hardcovers wrapped in pearl linen cloth, which come in a variety of bright colours.
The cover is embellished with a gold foil stamp and finished inside with hand-printed Japanese Chiyogami paper.
The unique exposed spine allows for an infinite number of contributions and serves as a visual reminder of the real human connections expressed within.
We giftwrap each of our Fondfolios in a locally-sourced vintage scarf, using a Japanese technique called “Furoshiki” – adding to the uniqueness, while also helping reduce our impact on the environment.
After you've completed your order you will immediately receive an interactive version of your Fondfolio which can be shared publicly with everyone who contributed.
Warm words, shared.
Your Fondfolio contributions stored online forever in a personalized Fondfolio website—share the lovely words with everyone who contributed. Sort responses by question type or read individual responses.
Digital + Hardcover
Everything you get with digital, plus a beautiful handmade hardcover version—each response occupying a spread. Free Furoshiki giftwrapping, free shipping. Something tangible to treasure.
