You are the founder--or CEO of a successful company and you've worked hard to see it grow.

There were lessons you learned along the way, and stories you'd like to tell--to encourage your staff and galvanize your customers and community. This legacy of knowledge is something you want to share to inspire others. 

 
 
 

Perhaps your company is preparing for a significant anniversary or milestone.Your past is a rich reservoir of history that you'd like to maximize in your marketing. 

Maybe your company has merged with other companies and you want to unify all the staff by detailing history that brings staff together with a shared vision and mission.

There are archives of photos and memorabilia. There are key leaders and employees who know the stories, too, but over time they'll be lost as people retire. You know that curating and harnessing your company history in a professional history book, you'll share the innovative spirit that was and is required to grow more successful.

You want a high-end professionally designed book that will be part of other marketing and promotions for an event. You want it done to your specifications, but you need the turnkey solution you can trust will oversee a company history book that is done right. 

We would love to help you achieve this goal!

Sherry was a pleasure to work with and delivered exactly what I had in mind. Hammer Pharmacy was a family owned business that grew into many other related businesses over the years. This book captured that history, our family and changes in the pharmacy industry. Our family was pleased with the outcome, and we've shared our company history with many interested in Hammer which was the oldest pharmacy in the city."

FAQ

Is working with Storied Gifts right for me?

Yes, if you have lessons and stories about the highs and lows of your company to share. It is especially valuable if you want to inspire others through what you've learned along the way. 

How much time will it take to complete my company history book?

We won't lie--there is work to be done, but we'll do it for you. We know your time is valuable so we'll work with you to glean the scope of the project, your vision and objectives, and then we'll work with your company advocate to tap into as a resource. Timeline books are our specialty. These can involve loads of photos, snippets of text and stories combined with an over-arching timeline that drives everything forward. These are beautiful and visually splashy books, but they take a bit more time. If you go this route we will work closely with your advocate. 

Is the book content mine, and can I continue to order copies?

Do you outsource any of your work?

We work with professional interviewers, designers and writers who have been a part of our team on multiple projects. We work in tandem to produce a book that not only meets your vision, but also our shared Storied Gifts high standards. 

If I book today, how much do I pay?
