I was excited to have the opportunity to talk with Dana at Artimus Art, and learn all about their unique and fabulous way of preserving children’s artwork.

Because if your kids are anything like mine, they come home with handfuls of special projects, arts and crafts, and precious scribbles almost everyday.  I lovingly display them, paste them up on our art wall, the refrigerator, hang them on their bedroom doors…and then safely “tuck them” into a big box.  In the closet.  Or worse.  I (shhhhhhh) recycle them.

Artimus Art takes your child’s artwork and creates a beautiful keepsake for your family – in the form of a gorgeous, museum-quality, customized, oversized, hard cover book.

How it works – collecting the artwork

I am totally guilty of snapping quick pictures of my kiddos’ adorable artwork with my iPhone.  Most of the time, the photos sit on my phone and either get uploaded to my computer and electronically filed (when I remember), OR get deleted to create more space on my phone.

Plus (inevitably), the pictures are low res, and many times, grainy.  Especially when I do take the time to print them.  Ugh.  Not really what I was going for in the memory preservation department.

Artimus Art actually sends you an art collection box (with return postage included!) after you purchase a package from them, and you can gather all of your favorite kid projects and ship them back.  No hassle. (Don’t worry, you’ll get the artwork back when they ship your finished art collection book.).

Since this is such a professional, quality project, I suggest creating your book by either your child’s chronological age, by their school year, or even by a bundle of their school years together (i.e. Preschool Years, Kindergarten – 3rd Grade, etc.).


Now the magic happens.  When the artwork arrives at their facility, you will be notified that it’s arrived safely.  They will start scanning the artwork, and post to your own private online gallery. You will receive an email indicating that the images are posted.

Once your art images are posted to the web gallery, you can log in and customize your 11″ x 11″ book.  A nice, big, shiny, thick coffee table book.

You can even create a dedication page – how cute is that?!

All of their production and binding is in-house only.  Which means you are getting the highest level of quality possible.  You will be notified via email during each phase of the book-making process.

Tis the season…to get going!

This is definitely an investment of your time – it is a project that takes at least eight weeks (sometimes more, depending on your own timeline and shipping timelines), from art collection to delivery of your new book.  So if you have your eye on this fabulous art book for holiday presents, now’s the time to start!

And yes, you get discounts for printing multiple copies of the book, so think grandparents, godparents, aunts and uncles, close friends…whoever would love a copy of your child’s amazing, one-of-a-kind artwork.  The extra books range from $45-$65 (for each book), depending on the total package you purchase.

You can check out their packages and prices here.

Plus…they have a new blog – all about art!

I am excited to share a unique company today that would make a beautiful gift for anyone with children. Artimus Art is a company that takes the hassle out of preserving children’s artwork (and I know we all struggle with what to do with kid’s art!)

You send them your child’s artwork and they send you back a beautiful, professionally crafted fine art coffee table book to showcase your little one’s creations. The oversized books measure 11″ x 11″ and even include customizable covers a dedication page with photo upload.

The hardback books are not your “run of the mill” digital photo books but quality fine art books.  Each piece of artwork is beautifully scanned with high attention to color detail so the finished project is jaw dropping.

In addition to preserving your child’s artwork in the hardcover book, Artimus Art also offers a CD with high resolution files of all your child’s art images. You can turn these files in a JPEG for use in countless projects such as iron-ons, invitations, cards, etc.

If you have a specific favorite piece of art, you can also order a canvas print to hang on your wall. Such a darling gift idea or fun for a child’s room or new baby nursery.

Give the Gift of Art: Two Gifts in One!

Since the holidays are quickly approaching and there is not enough time to get a book completed before Christmas, an Artimus Art Gift Certificate makes a great holiday gift for any mom who would love to make a special keepsake of her child’s art.

Actually you could make it into two gifts in one ~ the gift certificate could be a holiday gift and then you could give your completed book to someone special for a birthday, elementary school graduation, or to someone special on a special occasion.

Or, you can put an Artimus Art Gift Certificate on your Santa list and put preserving your child’s art on your list of projects to do in the new year.  Feel free to email this post to your parents or hubbies (wink, wink.) And, now you have the perfect solution to the “what to do with kid’s art?” dilemma.

Artimus Art: Custom Books of Your Child’s Art!

Have you ever wondered what to do with your child’s art?  Personally, I feel guilty throwing it out, so lots of time they end up in a drawer or box with the thought “someday I will do something with these…” But that day never comes! If you have found yourself in the same boat, I am thrilled to tell you about Artimus Art, a company that takes the hassle out of preserving children’s artwork.

You send them your child’s artwork and they send you back a beautiful, professionally crafted fine art coffee table book to showcase your little one’s creations.The oversized books measure 11″ x 11″ and even include customizable covers a dedication page with photo upload. And, Artimus Art is giving away one of their 30 page Red Wagon books this week, so make SURE to enter below mamas!

Wouldn’t this make a darling gift for a grandparent? And seeing that we are approaching the end of school, wouldn’t it be a great idea to do an art book for each school year?  Or how about having children in a class each contribute a piece for a special teacher’s gift?

When I first heard about this company I wondered how they would get my child’s art into a printed hard cover, case bound book, so let me tell you how it works

1. First you count the number of art pieces you have, then choose a package on their website that fits the amount of artwork you have. You can order down as you can always add pages to a book package.

The Red Wagon package is a 30 page book, the Trolley, a 50 page book, or a Dump Truck, an 80 page book.  The art collection box shipping is included in all packages.

2. Once purchased, your art collection box will be shipped the next business day and includes a return label to send in your artwork. The collection box will include an order form to add pages, extra oversized artwork, and to order extra book copies. All you have to do is take the stack of artwork and put it in the oversized bag and mail it in along with your order form. Easy peasy!

3. When it arrives, each piece is scanned, digitally enhanced, gently restored, digitized and posted to a web gallery. By the way, you will also get email updates along the way to let you they received it. They can even scan pieces with glitter, macaroni or other materials!

4. Once a customer’s artwork is posted, they are notified by email. They can then log on to their account to customize their book. You can customize the cover, color, font, do a dedication page with a photo, even title the artwork if you would like.

5. When your customizing is complete, your book will be printed and bound, and they will return your artwork along with your art collection book.

Each book package includes one book, but if extra copies are desired, you can order duplicate copies at a reduced price.  For $20.00, you can even do a unique dedication page for grandparents, aunts, friends, anyone!

In addition to preserving your child’s artwork in the hardcover book, Artimus Art now also offers a CD with high resolution files of all your child’s art images. You can turn these files in a JPEG for use in countless projects such as iron-ons, invitations, cards, etc.  You can add on a disc to any package for only $35.

And let me just reiterate about the quality, these are not your run of the mill photo books, these are fine art quality books.  Quality is the number one priority for Artimus Art, so each piece is beautifully scanned with high attention to the color enhancement so the finished project is jaw dropping. All you have to do is Google “Artimus Art” and you can read all the rave reviews for yourself.

If you have a specific favorite piece of art, you can also order a canvas print to hang on your wall.  Such a darling gift idea or fun for a sibling’s room or new baby nursery. Oh la la I just LOVE the possibilities of Artimus Art!

And ONE very lucky reader today has the opportunity to win one Red Wagon Book ($165 value!) To enter, complete as many of the Rafflecopter entry options as you would like below. The more you do, the more chances to win. GOOD LUCK!
