Heartfelt Books accepts no responsibility for the quality of the content (including misspelled words, grammatical errors, etc.), its formatting, design or overall appearance.

9. How many questions do I have to answer?

It takes a minimum of 18 questions to create a book. You can choose up to 36 questions to answer.

10. What about pictures – can you print pictures in my book?

Yes, you can add photos. But remember, our books are relationship books – not photo books. Lots of people start photo books at other sites, but very few people ever finish them, as they are extremely time consuming. We offer a simple, classy book that expresses – with words – your feelings about the person for which you are creating the book.

For those who still want to add a photo(s): Yes! We do have the ability to place a photo in your book, however at this time, it is a manual process. After you place your order, you can email your photo(s) to and note which page(s) you want us to place the photo(s). We will add the photos prior to printing your book.

Photos will be printed in black and white (gray-scale). Be sure your photo resolution and positioning is good. We don’t crop, enhance, remove red-eye, or in any way modify the image(s) you send us. Portrait orientation works better than landscape orientation. When selecting which page to place your photo, it is best to choose to replace one of the motifs on the left handed pages, or pages with very little text.

11. Can I change the order of my pages?

Your answers are printed in the order that you answer your questions. However, if you find when you preview your book that you want to change the placement of some of your pages, please enter your instructions in the Notes box below the book preview. We PROMISE to make your changes before printing. If you want to see a another proof before we print, please check the box below your instructions requesting an additional preview.
