Graduation Photo Books are a great alternative to traditional scrapbooks. They usually have a template that you can use as is or modify any way you want. Most Photo Books start at a minimum of 20 pages but you can add more pages (up to 100 in most cases) at an additional cost per page.
Photo Books come in several sizes, from 5″x7″ up to 12″x12″. You can add multiple photos per page as well as text.
If your photos are already digital – on your computer, on your camera or on CDs – then creating a photo book is fairly easy. Simply find a template you like, upload your photos and then add the photos to the photo book. Some photo books allow you to embellish the pages with digital stickers and other graphics. Most let you add text such as descriptions and headings.
If you have printed photos then you can create digital versions by scanning them yourself or by having them professionally scanned at a local or online photo lab. If you scan your photos yourself, make sure you scan them at the best resolution and biggest size possible. The better the resolution, the clearer the picture will be when it’s printed.

Graduation Photo Books
The first thing you need to do is decide what your book will include. Do you want to make it about your grad’s life, from baby to graduation? Do you want to include only his or her school years? Do you want to make it more recent and cover the high school years only? Or do you want to make it about their after school activities like clubs and sports?
You can create one all-inclusive book or you can create multiple books.

Scrapbooks are a great way to display photos at your graduation party. They’re beautiful keepsakes and people love looking through them. But they take time to create and they can be a lot of work. On the other hand, they’re a labor of love and will last forever. If you get started early enough you can create one or more scrapbooks with minimal stress.
This is definitely not the time to take all the photos you have stuffed in shoe boxes and closets and scrapbook them all. Start small. Start with a theme or two. Here are some categories or themes to consider:
- School Scrapbook. Have a page for each grade including pre-school. Include your child’s school picture, their class picture and a couple of random shots if you have some. Just have a school photo or a class photo? That’s okay. Include the one photo and decorate the page with other things like classwork, artwork or age appropriate stickers.
- Sports, Team or Club Scrapbook. Have a page for each year of sports, teams or clubs your child was on. Include individual pictures, team or club pictures, and some casual photos if you have them. Include medals, awards and newspaper clippings.
- High School or College Scrapbook. . . . → Read More: Scrapbooks for your Graduation Party
