What’s Your Story?
Life is stranger than fiction. Also richer, more complex, idiosyncratic, fleeting. The way we hold on to life as it is lived is through memories. Photos, scrapbooks, videos, blogs—these all help preserve memories and capture moments.
But only in a privately published memoir or commemorative book can you pull it all together—the stories, the pictures, the artifacts of life well lived—and be able to return to it again and again, conveniently, at your leisure, now and for generations to come. Books have a very, very long track record of endurance (think, The Dead Sea Scrolls), and they’re one of the few forms of media that you can be sure won’t end up being obsolete any time soon (remember floppy disks?) .
At SMALL BATCH BOOKS we specialize in private publishing of personal histories and other custom-published literary works, helping our discriminating clients tell their stories, and turning those stories into beautifully written, edited, designed, and bound books that become instant heirlooms (as in, the thing that would be snatched from the burning house). In addition to memoir publishing, we also provide writing and editing services, as well as prepress, printing, binding, and marketing services for those who want to self-publish their books.

Let us help you leave behind a truly lasting legacy, one that informs and inspires those who mean the most to you, in the form of a personal memoir, family history, company history, or commemorative book.
At SMALL BATCH BOOKS our full range of creative services allows you to choose the degree of professional assistance you need to get your project from idea to limited-edition volume sitting proudly on your bookshelf or coffee table. We partner with you no matter where you are in your book process, no matter what kind of book you hope to create. To jumpstart your memoir we provide in-home interviewing and transcribing. To move your manuscript to the next stage we provide editing and polishing, fine-tuning the words into a skillfully crafted narrative that is then designed, printed, and bound using artisan bookbinding techniques that have withstood the tests of time. We want your finished book to look as elegant as it reads, so you will have many fine papers, fabrics, leathers, and other materials to choose from in creating your book.
