How much does it cost?

On-line book
This option is ideal if you prefer, at least for the time being, to have your book in digital form rather than on paper. The book recipient will be able to leisurely view his or her letters on our website. You can also order downloadable PDF files of your book for $ 25, and print it yourself. The PDF option includes a virtual book online.
$ 75
The cost-effective choice
You want something that your loved one will be able to feel and touch: a printed book at an affordable price, with an attractive soft cover. We make sure that your book will look very good (e.g. by removing duplicates, making sure images are rotated correctly, etc.) but we don't offer previews or full customer support.
$ 110
Elegant and long-lasting
This is definitely the book you should go for if you wish to offer a nicely designed hardcover with an elegant dust jacket. Page after page, your letters of love and appreciation will shine forth and touch the right chord. We will remove duplicates, make sure images are rotated correctly, etc., but we don't offer previews or full customer support.

Our story

how it all started...

It all started when Agustin wanted to surprise Anita with a birthday present. He got in touch with all of her friends and loved ones scattered all over the globe...
By the time Anita's birthday arrived, the website Agustin created had 85 letters for her, from 35 different cities and 10 different countries. Letters from friends she hadn't seen in decades. Imagine her surprise, and her joy. It was, she said, the best birthday present ever.
