SAMPLING OF PAST PROJECTS

MY DAUGHTER IS THE NEXT PICASSO…

OUTSIDE the BOX created a beautiful “portfolio” of a child’s art work from pre-school through elementary school.
As these “portfolios” are the cornerstone of our business, please see our blog posting “your child’s artwork…” Our signature books have been utilized as grandparents gifts, birthday gifts for the “artists,” and coffee table books for proud parents.

NEVER GROW UP…

OUTSIDE the BOX scanned non-digitalized photos of a soon-to-be college freshman’s life – from birth to current day – to create beautiful keepsake to take with her to college. The book also featured song lyrics which “narrated” her “story” and included her artwork, and photos of special mementos. The book is not only a priceless tome, it is easy to transport and store in a dorm or apartment. This book was created as a graduation gift from parents to their daughter.
Our NEVER GROW UP books are extremely popular, and since our inception have become an OUTSIDE the BOX signature item . 

I MISS SUMMER CAMP…

OUTSIDE the BOX recreated the memories of a child’s home-away-from-home using photos from a pre-camp visit; downloaded from the camp website; and taken by the camper during her stay at camp. Upon the camper’s return home, this photo book was given to her as a birthday present.

Featuring photos, newspaper clippings, wedding invitations, birth announcements and more, this book was the perfect 50th anniversary present for our client’s parents.
