Customer Reviews

comparison Review by LJ650
I couldn't determine the right book between this book and the "well wishes" book. So, I bought them both and returned the one we decided against. Bc I didn't personalize them, returning this one was easy. Here is the book we chose:

So, why did I choose the other book? While I liked this retirement book and thought it was fun, we were giving this to an executive at his retirement party which was a sit down dinner and very sophisticated. It didn't feel formal enough. We wanted people to share messages, photos, letters, whatever. But this book has specific writing inspiration (Prompts, I guess) and I missed that detail when ordering. The cards of this book are nice but not nearly as nice as the well wishes cards. Those cards are beautiful! And with that book, you can write whatever message (pages aren't printed). The look of the books was similar... this one is like a landscape - other is like a portrait. I ordered the brown leather, which I love. And the pages are tan - not cream/ivory - tan. The cards look really nice on these pages.

Overall, the styling, sophistication and appearance of the well wishes book is what led us to keep that one. We ordered more cards - the book has 40 sheets and 160 cards and it still looks great. We also added other items and this works well too.

I could see this book being good for more casual affairs, non executives, fun parties, etc. It just didn't fit the level we were going for. I gave it 4 stars because there wasn't anything wrong with it - just thought the other one was a much better fit.

hope this helps!

planning retirement party Review by nancy
Hi Courtney,
I think the pages are tan - I just ordered a Memory Book (black leather cover). Someone else has the book, but if you can't tell from my previous order, I'll find out for you within the next day or so. I am part of a group planning a retirement part - everyone absolutely loves the book!
