What a great gift!!

I bought this as a gift for my son-in-law's birthday. I thought it would be awesome for him to be able to see what was happening in the world the year he was born. Ordering process was simple. I uploaded my personal photos, chose what message I wanted at the top and the pdf was emailed to me the next day. I was able to download it and print it off. It makes a great personalized gift. Will definitely order again.
