We’ve set a minimum of 12 contributions, just so each book has a healthy thickness 🙂 and there’s no maximum — our unique design allows for an infinite number. Most Fondfolios tend to receive ~ 20 – 30 contributions, on average. The most we’ve ever seen collected was 92. We’d like to see that record […]
How can we help?
The contribution order defaults to chronological, rewarding those who didn’t need as many reminders ;). We can also order alphabetically by first name if you’d prefer, let us know as it’s not yet an option on our website. In the future we’re hoping to offer more flexible sorting options.
You have to wait, once you complete the purchase the contribution form closes (preventing more contributions) and the digital version is generated.
We will proof and spell-check each contribution before we print. If you want to make edits yourself, you also have the ability to edit the contributions from within your Fondfolio dashboard.
We’re working on a robust Save for Later feature, but in the meantime you can simply enter your email address at the bottom of the contribution form in the Send me a Copy field and click Submit, then continue to edit your contribution later, as many times as you like using the link in the […]

We recommend that you create a private Facebook event with the date set as the contribution closing date and invite people to the event. Allow and encourage guests to invite others so that you can reach people outside of your friend network. If the recipient has a significant other (especially one whom they’ve been with […]
Sometimes, we all need a little motivation to get things done. Here are some tips we’ve found helpful when reaching out to people and encouraging them to contribute. Be concise, friendly and instructive when reaching out to people (the less explaining the better). Lead with the most important bit — the URL and call to […]
1800 characters might seem like an arbitrary number, but it helps us ensure that we’re creating a consistent product and puts all the contributors on an even playing field – with those that have a tendency to ramble and those that might not have as much to say each getting one spread in the book.

It’s our belief that words are more timeless, and ultimately more meaningful than a thousand pictures. Besides there are so many great ways to share images with your friends and family these days.
