Lifekive FAQs


Will my loved one be able to do this?

We make it super easy to respond to the prompts. Just reply to the email, type your answer, and attach any photos you want. You can also edit any parts of the books and add photos when you review it before we print it.


When am I able to print out my book?

We recommend waiting until you've answered twenty prompts so that the book is at least twenty pages.


How do I let you know who the gift is for?

During checkout you'll be able to provide your recipient's name and email, as well as a gift message that will be sent to them. We will then send all prompts to your recipient so they can share their memories and create an amazing book.


What does the final memory book look like?

Your memory book will be 6x9, hardcover with a colored cover. The inside will have colored or black text and colored photos. You can customize your font type/color, page layout, and cover design/title when you review and send your book to print.


Can I review and make changes to my memory book before it's printed?

Yes! We encourage you to make any edits to the written memories, add photos, customize the font, and personalize your cover before you send it to print so it best reflects you and your special memories.

"My dad passed away when I was a teenager. I would treasure having access to just a handful of his stories and memories. But I gifted this to my mother, and it has been amazing to see her book of memories and photographs come together."
