WHEN YOU MAKE the effort to share your company’s story, you want it to be read. One way to increase readability is for it to be story driven, with engaging, large photographs—able to be read in an hour or two. If you want to share a more comprehensive business history, we’ll work with you to make it as engaging as possible.

Your story can help orient new employees to your company. They gain a common understanding of your corporate DNA as they read it, look at your most compelling photographs, read your core values, and see your history summarized in a timeline.

And it can be used to distinguish your company from your competition. Others might hand out a business card or brochure, but you have your best stories and photos in a book or digital story to share with a prospective client or to attract top talent.

OUR SERVICES INCLUDE:
- Reviewing materials already published or on your website;
- Interviewing people in your company (and possibly key clients);
- Weaving the stories into a manuscript;
- Scanning and touching up photographs;
- Designing and laying out the book/digital presentation;
- Providing it to you for review and sign off; and
- Arranging for the book to be printed and bound, or releasing the digital version.
For more details, see Process.

We also offer the option of creating a custom slipcase to display a copy of 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

TESTIMONIAL

I’m not sure we could have ever found a more capable, creative, easy-to-work-with group to design, write, and produce our corporate story. We also couldn’t find one that was farther away. As a Florida real estate development company, it should have been easy to find a local writing team to create our 40th Anniversary Book. But once we spoke with Larry and Sylvia in British Columbia (Canada), we were sold on their approach, their sensibilities, and their evident mastery of building a beautiful storybook out of four decades of snippets from our corporate (and sometimes personal) lives. They also assured us that the 3,400 miles between our offices should not have any effect on the fluidity of the project. They were so right.

The process of orchestrating the various stories, players, and photos—and the ultimate production of the book—required tremendous patience, delicate people skills, and a film director’s vision of the end product. Larry and Sylvia have all these talents in spades, and they are two of the most pleasant people you will ever meet.

We truly enjoyed the experience, and are glad to welcome these new Canadian friends into our family. But most important, we love the end product. The response to the book has been fantastic. Several folks have told me that they opened it simply to peruse it, yet couldn’t put it down and read every page.

We couldn’t have made a better choice, and highly recommend Thumbprint Books for any similar project.
