The Most Awesome David Archuleta Goodie Ever!

US labels like Jive don’t typically include lyrics booklets in CDs anymore. Keeping costs down, I think. Lyric sites are many on the net, but nothing beats having the lyrics in a nice little book. Before showing the 3 complete download options (yes, I’m crazy) I want to thank Larissa for scrutinizing the lyrics that I obtained off the web. As a result, these lyrics are the closest to correct they can be from listening to the CD!

Your choices will be described and compared below. In order of complexity of making them, they are:

1. Classic lyrics booklet

2. Photo album booklet

3. Mini-posters

I hope one of these forms will work for you!

1. Classic lyrics booklet

When I first wanted to do this project, the classic lyrics booklet came to mind first–a booklet that would fit inside a CD case. But then I realized there were some disadvantages to this format. It wouldn’t use standard size paper so it would have to be cut to size. Plus the pages needed to be printed back-to-back with perfect alignment. And for the best chance of fitting in a CD case, it would need to be printed on thin coated paper. Finally, it has to be folded together and stapled. Yikes! And yet, I still want one!

Classic


If you’re up to the task, please download the classic booklet .pdf file. The pages are correctly arranged and in order so that each sheet will be printed in order from outside to inside. There will be 4 printed sheets, each with 4 pages of the booklet.

2. Photo album booklet

So how to put together a booklet in the easiest way? First make the pages fit some sort of standard paper, then find a way to bind them easily. I came up with the idea to make a small photo album for the booklet.

Photos


Download the photos .zip file to get all the pages in .jpg format (caution: this is a 55MB file). Print the pages on standard 4 x 6 inch photo paper. You can probably even have your local photo printer do this–just make sure they don’t cut off the edges to the pages. A little white around the image is better than cutting off David’s head in the Spidey picture. Finally purchase a small photo album which holds at least 26 photos. These are available in a lot of styles and places, and they cost only a few dollars.

3. Mini-posters

Posters


This was an afterthought, but it was really easy for me to do once I’d done the others, so I did, haha. It’s so simple you might want to do it! Download the posters .zip file to get the page spreads (2 facing pages for each song) in .jpg format (this is “only” a 50 MB file). The pages will be 6 x 8 inches, which means you can only fit one on a standard sized paper. They will be prettiest on photo paper. You could print a whole set and put them in a loose-leaf notebook. Not the most elegant solution but it would surely work!

In parting, here’s a sample page spread/mini-poster. If you like this goodie, please consider leaving me a comment–they mean the world to me.

Thank you for your continued support of David Archuleta!
