Waipuna Estate in Christchurch is set in luxurious surroundings with spectacular views of the Southern Alps. It is the perfect venue to host your wedding or private functions such as birthdays, anniversaries or family get-togethers.

What’s that got to do with us?

As we create guestbooks and the Waipuna Estate provides an exquisite boutique wedding venue -  we were thrilled to be asked to make a unique visitors book for this charming Estate.

As you will see from the photographs of the guestbook, the cover has the Waipuna logo on the front. This is how we roll at My Guestbook, creating one off books to suit any occasion and working in with your brand. Want to know how we did it? We’ll let you into a secret, by using a heat transfer method. Because we can! As our products are made by hand we are always up for a challenge. In this case, Waipuna Estate required an A4 landscape book with custom cover.

As we have been providing guestbooks for some time now, we have learnt that guests regardless of the occasion, i.e weddings, funerals, leaving parties, prefer to be presented with a blank page when it comes to leaving a message. It allows the guests to be creative and leave personal messages rather than work around the restrictions of lined paper. We have found those who love to draw or stick photographs in books, enjoy the creative freedom this brings with it. 

And now, there is another use - promotional! If you opt for a book with this style of page design, you could use photos of the messages as feedback in your promotional material (with guests permission of course). The unique style of testimonial can not only be used online but the old fashioned way too (remember this!) - in print. This makes it a fantastic and unique promotional tool as well as a great visitors book for guests to peruse and write in.

For those of you who love attention to detail, here are the specifications of this guestbook:

  • It has been made with the hands of an award winning artisan bookbinder.
  • The pages are luxurious 135 gsm paper for that quality feeling
  • Covered with white book cloth for the timeless classy guestbook look.
  • It has been perfect bound which means the pages have been hand glued to the spine of the book. Hand-bound books made in this way will last for many years to come.

How perfectly perfect is that!
