There is a reason why 90% of the cookbooks we print are submitted in late November and early December. Everyone knows that family cookbooks make great Christmas gifts! Everyone wants something personal and special to give to loved ones at the holidays and a family cookbook is makes the perfect gift.
Why is Family Cookbook Project telling you this in August? Well cookbooks don’t just happen by themselves, they need to be have recipes entered, professionally design covers selected and everything proofread before they are submitted for printing.
The time it takes to have your cookbook printed and shipped also more than doubles just before the holidays because of the sheer volume. So now is the time to put your efforts into your cookbook and have it completed and submitted for printing by the time September rolls around.
