CONCEPT

For the little people in our lives, ABC Me makes personalised books that spell out, letter by letter, a child’s first and last names. Birthdates are tailored to the narrative, while at other times, the child’s name sneaks in to become part of the picture. The books are filled with delicately rendered animal illustrations that will captivate children and engage adults.

Each ABC Me book is something special, and makes a thoughtful and original keepsake gift for newborns, toddlers, siblings and loved ones. They are also perfect gifts for a cherished child for holidays, birthdays, special occasions or milestone celebrations.

Giving an ABC Me book means showing young children a fun, appealing way to help them develop letter, name and animal recognition.  Lovingly created and written for parents, caregivers and a beloved child to enjoy time and time again, ABC Me books are sure to be household favourites for years to come.

5 REASONS FOR PERSONALISING

Each book is unique, like the child you are giving it to!

What child doesn't think the world revolves around them!

Takes the hassle out of gift giving.

The books grow with your children.

ABOUT US

Tired of giving the same gifts over and over to friends with newborns?

So were we!

ABC Me was conceived in 2013 by us, a husband and wife team living in Singapore.  We were given a personalised book as a present for our first son when we resided in the US.  However, since moving to Singapore, we were hard-pressed to find customised gift books that were fun and engaging, with fresh, contemporary illustrations.

How many times have you come across personalised gifts and items only to find that (the unique spelling of) your child’s name isn’t there or that the gift isn’t really unique at all?

We have four children who love to see their names in books (or on anything, really) and what child doesn’t?  So we launched ABC Me with the aim of creating a product that was engaging to both the eye and ear.

Here at ABC Me, we wanted to produce a gift that was meaningful, thoughtful and one-of-a-kind. ABC Me’s first book, The Perfect Name was the result followed by My ABC Book.

Lastly, we wanted you to know that we really enjoy the design process for each and every book we make and envision your young child(ren) wanting to read it over and over again.

Sincerely,
Jawan & Althea

 - Friend of Marian Jacob

 “Thank you for the uniquely crafted book for Ayden on his 1st birthday.  Though at only age 1, Ayden's parents had already embarked on his reading journey, they were delighted to receive this book for him and thought it to be very meaningful with descriptions and pictures. They hope Ayden will grow up with this book and recognise his name through the illustrations.  I feel proud to have presented him with this dedication and this book is priceless."

 - Alan Lee

In most cases yes!  However, a photo can be included on the dedication page for The Perfect Name book.  The cost to include the photo is an additional $5.00.  Because all photos received may not be of ideal quality for the dedication page, we only take photo requests on a case by case basis.  The pictures need to meet a minimum resolution of 300 pixels per inch and have a portrait orientation.
