The Cookbook Bus is Here - Back to School!

It’s September and Back to School time.  Time to get “everyone on the bus” and helping on your cookbook at or

Well, Summer 2011 has come and gone.  Hope you had a great one!  Today is Labor Day – and it’s feeling like fall with school back in session for most of us tomorrow.  So – time to get everyone busy adding and trying yummy recipes to your family or group cookbook.

Believe it or not, the holiday season is almost upon us. Since family cookbooks make a wonderful gift, it’s no wonder why that is by far our busiest time of the year.

Tips for Making a Holiday Deadline

In order to make sure you receive your cookbooks in time for sharing with your friends and family for the holidays, here are some tips from Family Cookbook Project.

  • Use the Reminder Tool to email contributors to enter in their best recipes so they can look forward to cookbook for the holidays.
  • Set a deadline so everyone knows when their recipes must be submitted by – and make sure you leave a few days for those contributors that will want to add a recipe or two after the deadline!
  • You do not have to wait until your recipe collection is completed to start working with the Publishing Tool. Pick a cover from our professionally designed assortment or design your own. Select your layout type face and dividers – just remember to click the save button and the system will remember your selection.
  • Don’t wait until the last minute. While our digital printing allows for some of the fastest turn-a-round times in the industry, printing is done on a first come first served basis. We are expecting and are prepared for a lot of editors to have their cookbooks printed in October and November. You don’t want to be the last in line – so place your order early!

Right now is the perfect time to get everyone involved – and print your book for the holidays!
