Ordering Your Family Storybook

As each Family Storybook is unique and created to order, we can only quote prices once we have discussed your requirements with you.

However, as a guide:

  • A full-colour standard format album of 36 pages: prices start at £395.
  • A full-colour large-format album of 40 pages: prices start at £595.

These prices are for design only. We can also write the text based on interviews or source material and/or review and edit a text that you have prepared already. The cost for this will be included in your project quotation.

Elements such as scanning or restoration of photographs and preparation of genealogical charts may incur additional charges.

All Family Storybooks are hardback with images on front and back cover and are printed externally to professional quality using the latest digital printing technology. The above figures are minimum sizes and there is no limit on the page count.

Books are printed on high-quality paper and available in a variety of sizes (for example, square, large square, A4 portrait, A4 landscape). We will agree the format during the commissioning process.

Our project quotation includes a single copy of the finished book, including delivery by Royal Mail Special Delivery or equivalent. Additional copies may be ordered at any time, typically at £25-40 each. Discounts apply on orders of 20 copies or more. Presentation boxes are also available. 

Books can be issued with ISBN numbers and made available for sale on online platforms, if you wish.

Orders are subject to a deposit of 25% and full payment is required in advance of delivery.
