Momento… making memories last

Australian women are having more babies now than in the past 30 years[1], the majority of mums are working harder than ever before. Research from the ABS shows that almost two thirds (63 percent) of mums with children under 15 have a job – meaning that many mums are spending less time with their families in this day and age[2]. This year, rather than saying thank you with the typical flowers, Australian company Momento, is making it possible for Australians to create a personalised photobook gift for mum.

“Rather than having your precious family memories stored away on your computer, photobooks are a great way to capture and share memories for your mum,” says Libby Jeffery, co-founder of Momento. “They’re also ideal for mums who don’t like looking at photos on a computer.”

Recognised as the photo album of the digital age, Momento photobooks are made using free downloadable software from the Momento website. Users visit the site, download the free software and can then easily create their own photobooks using their own designs or existing templates.

Once customers have completed the photobook they simply submit the file and the Momento team puts together the book by hand. Momento uses premium paper stock as well as high-quality digital printing processes to produce photobooks of outstanding quality that will last a lifetime.

“So many of our customers email us to tell us that they will cherish their photobook for life,” says Libby.
“With Momento’s help many mums will receive special gift, made with love to enjoy forever.”

Prices for photobooks start from $80.
