Twice a year, we print custom soft-cover Baby Readers.
Once a year, we also offer the option to customize orders of board Baby and Toddler Readers!
Custom Baby and Toddler Readers can:
* Provide local contacts for your new parents
* Strengthen your program branding with moms and dads
* Recognize the generosity of donor organizations or individuals

We welcome the opportunity to work with you well ahead of the ordering deadline to configure your custom content.
In fact, we can place your content and provide PDF proofs ahead of any council/district meeting throughout the year so that you can leisurely consider the design and presentation details. Starting the iterative draft process early allows you to consult with other stakeholders and receive feedback to strengthen the eventual cover designed for your new families.
To start the process, we'll need:
1. Your specific text (and direction for placement - see Cover Templates) and
2. Graphics files, if you're including logos, etc.
Our printing process requires standard print graphics files:
Native Files: Adobe Illustrator (AI) or Photoshop (PSD)
Vector File: EPS
or TIF or JPG files at 300 dots-per-inch (dpi)
Graphic files require embedded fonts, and should be in grayscale (using only blacK ink - no process white) unless your order is for a full-color customization.
We’ll place your custom components into the files of the English and/or Spanish Baby Readers. We'll then present you with amended PDFs or print-outs (see below) of your customizations for your review and final approval.
NB: The proofing process must be completed two weeks after a format's order deadline to maintain our print schedule for all custom clients. (As mentioned above, we can start the process at your earliest convenience!)
By order deadline, you'll need to complete our Custom Order Form to specify quantities, main contact, and Shipping and Billing addresses.
