LEGACY LETTERS AND BOOKS

A legacy letter book is an investment that is deeply appreciated now and its value appreciates over time. As with a vacation, the cost varies from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars depending on what you want.  Costs for projects are dependent on several variables, for example – the type of services needed, the time required to complete the project, and the selected materials. Each project is custom designed, so the time involved can range from a few days to several months.  Family members can split the cost and share the love generated by the project. Organizations and businesses can also share in or completely cover the costs.
