To assist you in professionally developing and publishing your family history, our family history publishers provide the following publication features:
- Publishing your family history is more than just binding photocopied pages! Just as each person is an individual, so is each publishing project... and we treat your publishing project as such!
- We start with your original documents, finished manuscript and photos.
- We can assist with editing, interviewing and transcripting if needed.
- First, we review your goals for your book, manuscript and photographs and decide on a visual theme for the layout.
- We can proof your document for grammatical content. Your text can be “final” or we can finesse your “rough” draft.
- We scan and digitally clean your photos and documents for placement in the book. All images we scan receive basic color correction.
- A complete proof is delivered for your final approval.
- We print your book on acid-free, archival paper.
- We oversew the pages together to provide a book that will last as long as the paper it’s printed on.
- Your book is bound in buckram or imitation leather. We create custom stamping dies to stamp the title and author on the front cover and spine. We now offer beautifully printed and gloss-laminated covers that bring added life to your book.
- Most of our books are manufactured by hand in America and we take great pride in our custom craftsmanship.
Actual publication costs vary considerably according to the number of pages, amount of color, number of books and book size of a your family history. Please contact us for more information and a personal consultation about developing and publishing your genealogy, family history or other book.
