Bookplates from Zazzle, Dazzle!

(I'm not being compensated in any way for talking about Zazzle...
Just sharing something I like with all of you.)

Have any of you every used Zazzle to generate your very own, semi-custom and personalized bookplates? I have! And you know what? I am one satisfied customer!

There are nearly 3,000 backgrounds to choose from, and you can alter the words on the front (meaning you can change any or all of the text, including font type, font size, and number of lines). There are also two sizes available, and I have ordered some of both.

Sadly, the photos of my creations pictured below are not too sharp, but I think you can get the idea. I'm afraid I may be in the market for a new camera before long, as mine no longer focuses as well as it once did. Do cameras suffer from old age? (Just wondering...)

Be that as it may, the bookplates look wonderful in person, and I have made several different sizes and styles to suit my book-owning pleasure. Hopefully, a few more of the books I lend out will find their way home to me!

=)

what a great idea! I am going to have to check it out. And nothing is better than getting a book back that you have loaned.

Those are really nice. I've never thought to do that - no wonder books rarely get back to me!

I didn't know these even existed- I've always just written my name in the book. They're so pretty too!

I love these! Thanks Sue! This would be a great gift for my husband.

I love these. I bought book plates when we lived in our last house and framed a different one for each of my kids. I need to check these out.
