What is Heritage Makers?
Heritage Makers helps you build a lasting legacy of family heritage. Using a proprietary, online publishing system, you can quickly and professionally publish a beautiful, full-color book on high quality glossy paper, stitched and library bound.

What kinds of projects can I make?
In addition to several types of storybooks, you can publish cards, calendars, and posters. You buy project CREDITS that are put into your Account. You receive an account FREE when you order any of our products. You have ONE YEAR from date of purchase to create your book and submit it for Publishing.

How much do projects cost?
Projects range in price from $6.95 to $129.95. There are also monthly sales on certain packages of books. Shipping is calculated when you submit your book for Publishing, which is usually around $8.

What are the advantages of Heritage Makers over traditional scrapbooking?
There are several advantages to publishing over traditional scrapbooking:

* No mess
* Quick and easy
* Several people can contribute to the book, each from their own home.
* Reprints of book available ANYTIME.
* Each project is archived forever in our system.
* Easy start-and-stop. No supplies to set out, no mess to clean up.

What do I need to publish a book?

  • Computer (Windows 98 or later. For Macs, OSX or later) 64 MB RAM Modem or network interface card Monitor with 1024 resolution.
  • Internet access (preferably DSL or CABLE, high-speed)
  • Firefox 2.0 or Internet Explorer 7.0 or greater

Do I need my own software?
Heritage Makers has its own publishing software with pre-designed templates for easy use. However, you may also design your own pages and import them into the Heritage Makers online publishing system. Photos need to be saved as jpg files. Software programs which are compatible with Heritage Makers include Adobe Photoshop, Scrapbook Factory, Paste It! If you can save it as a JPEG, you can put it in our books!

How long does it take to publish my book?
Once you have submitted the template for printing, it takes 10-14 business days to arrive on your doorstep.

How do I (or others) get copies of my projects?
You may republish any project you complete for whomever wants a copy. You may also have them log into your account and order it directly from my website. You won't have to gather money, order for them, or ship the book to them: We will do all that for you!

What if there are mistakes in my final book?
Heritage Makers will reprint without change any book with their error (binding, etc). Any mistakes or changes by the author will be reprinted at price.
