Preserve your family histories and memoirs for future generations

We can transform your family history from stories, photographs, memorabilia, family listings and family trees into permanent beautiful keepsakes for future generations.

Family histories can range from a collection of personal stories to a thorough account of past and present generations. We have experience creating a range of different types of family trees, From simple listings to detailed charts. We can also create custom maps if required.

Custom maps provide the opportunity to showcase relevant and important places to your families’ history.

We can restore and enhance photographs as required. This service can greatly enrich your history and also provides an up to date archive of your family photographs.

Family History Cover Design

After extensive discussions with you, we will provide suggestions for the cover design based upon the content of your family history and your own ideas. Cover design may include collages of photographs, maps of places of origin, memorabilia and stylised family trees. Whatever approach we use, the outcome will be a meaningful cover design that showcases your family history.

  • Photographs

Other services

Proofreading:

If you required a final set of eyes to check through your manuscript, we can provide this service. After the creation of the first set of pages, we find this is the perfect opportunity to find errors and typos. Once your manuscript has been transformed into a uniformed design, you may likely spot things that you may have overlooked.

Above all, it can be like seeing it for the first time.

We can also organise your ISBN and CiP data to ensure your family history is available for future generations to access. This is some of the information that goes on the imprint page, along with your copyright details.

Printing:

We take the stress out of finding the right printer. If you accept our design quote, we will create specifications for your book. We will then source two printing quotes for you. And we will also liaise with your chosen printer to ensure that your finished book is delivered on budget, on time.

Where we begin…
It all starts with a complimentary 30 minute consultation. This allows us to talk about your book’s subject matter in depth. We also establish your ideas and target audience to establish a solid book design direction. We then put together a quote for your consideration. Please phone or email us to schedule your free consultation.
