I recently was directed to a website service in Vancouver that specializes in telling people's memoirs. I thought you'd enjoy the comparisons.
The most complete and largest Heritage Makers coffee table Heritage book (100 pages) I have ever created priced out at $141.00 usd plus taxes and shipping. It was an amazing process and the end result was incredible. I probably invested 200+ hours but it was a personal journey and was worth every minute.
The memoir company shares:
We specialize in projects for families and businesses, with prices starting at $125,000 for individual and family biographies and $200,000 for corporate histories. We also work with many of our clients on a long-term basis as "outsourced storytellers" where we are constantly gathering their new stories and delivering them back in creative and valuable ways.
Yes, they do interview you and your family.
Yes, they scan your photos and documents.
For me the enjoyment came in THE JOURNEY so I'm glad I did it myself, traveled across the prairies and scanned the family photo albums with my cousins and aunts, interviewed them myself, and re-established relationships with family.
ps I also saved the $124,859.00.
Yes, It is ALL GOOD!

I am so excited. I get to present this marvelous tribute book to a special man onstage in Dallas, TX this weekend. This is a preview of the title page (red outline is cut off when printed). What a marvelous way to say, "Happy Birthday to someone reaching 80".
I have been privileged to hear from some of my clients who have created books for their kids who are graduating. I managed a sneak peak by offering to proof their books for them.
Wow! you guys rock. Your kids are going to be so excited.
If you have any special events like graduation email me for this month's publishing specials for you to checkout.
Keep on Celebrating those ones in your life.
It truly is a Marvelous Mission!

Would you like to feature that family baseball star?
Don't have photos for an entire book?
Then by all means create a wall poster.
This template I designed is for an 18x24 inch poster.
What a great way for the 'star' to recall his special moments.
Personalized with his name, his photos, his team name and his own roster #.
What a great gift for the relatives that live far away.
I have created the template & will transfer for free into my client's accounts. That way they can use our wonderful 'swapping photo feature' and simply swap out or replace the photos with those of your own dear one. They don't have to worry about designing, just personalizing.
All the text can be simply revised to have your pertinent info in its place.
What do you need to do?
1) Go to www.RecallWhen.com
2) Set up your free account
3) Phone or email me with your account number so I can transfer the project to you.
4) Start uploading your favourite baseball photos into a photo album created on this free Heritage Maker account. I'd create an album called Baseball 2008 as you can have as many photo albums as you need and this is a perfect & efficient time to start sorting all your photos.
5) Ask me for your free 20 minute demo either in person or online so you can get your project done ASAP. In fact I've made this so simple it should take all of 20-30 minutes to complete once you've uploaded your photos.
Let's make some magic! Right now till the end of May...Special Price Discounts!
