Hey Mommy Bears!
Today we are back on the Qeepsake trail, and we are going to discuss how much it costs to get the physical book printed once you feel like you have enough entries! I myself don’t have enough entries in Qeepsake to make a book yet, but as soon as I have a decent amount I am planning on getting the book so I can get you a review of the quality of the book!
So let’s get to it!
Ordering the Qeepsake Book
The Qeepsake website states that the minimum amount of entries you need to have in your journal to order the book is 20. You can only order books if you are on a paid plan, and the book will cost you extra beyond your subscription fee. Two different kids cannot be combined into one journal at this time, so sorry for your parent with multiple kids.
The turnaround time after you order your baby book is 6-8 weeks. Unfortunately you don’t have control over the layout of your book. It seems like you get one to three entries per page, depending on how much you wrote, and whether or not you included an image. The books are printed in the date order of your entries, and there is no option to preview them before shelling out your money.
The Cost of the Qeepsake Book
The current cost of the book is $29.99 for just 20 pages. The company claims that this size book will hold 1-85 entries from your journal.
There is also a 21-50 page option for $44.99, and you can custom order larger books than that. Additional pages currently run $9.95.

My Thoughts On Getting A Physical Qeepsake Book
To me the whole physical book idea lacks some important things. First you are kind of going to have to guess what you book will look like, since there is no previewing or making your own arrangement. Secondly, it seems a little pricey for so much uncertainty.
Curiosity has the better of me though, so like I said above, I will likely be ordering one once I get enough entries. It may turn out to be a cool keepsake, or at least I can report back to my readers and let them know how the experience was!
