PEOPLE OFTEN PAGE through a book — looking at photos, perhaps reading captions or a short vignette. If they’re interested enough, they may sit down and read the book from cover to cover.

When you make the effort to share your company’s story, you want it to be read — by employees, by customers and vendors (current and potential), and by the public if you choose to distribute it that way. One way to increase readability is for your book to be story driven, with lots of engaging, large photographs. A collection of 40 to 50 key stories, plus that many photographs can convey much of your corporate story in a book that can be read and enjoyed in a couple of hours. If you want to share a more comprehensive business history, we’ll work with you to make it as engaging as possible.

OUR SERVICES INCLUDE interviewing people in your company (and possibly key clients), reviewing materials already published or on your website, weaving the stories into a manuscript, scanning and touching up photographs, designing and laying out the book, providing it to you for review and sign off, and then arranging for the printing. For more details, see Process.

You might consider two editions of your anniversary book of company stories — a softcover edition for general distribution, and a hardcover edition for your head office and key people in the company. We also offer the option of creating a custom slipcase to display the book in your head office. For examples of book art we’ve made, see our Portfolio.

LESSONS LEARNED THE HARD WAY

Your business has faced challenges, and grown through them. What at first might seem a failure can lead to a lesson that couldn’t have been learned any other way — and once learned (and hopefully not repeated) might turn out to be one of your greatest strengths. Sharing those lessons “humanizes” your company story.

In this book, photos of grandkids illustrate some hard lessons learned
