Revive your story

Is your book out of date? Let's bring it back to life!

Have you preserved your legacy for the future?

There is no more permanent way to preserve your family history, memoir or other family records than in a printed book.
Our aim is to preserve your story for all future generations.

What can I make into a book?

When it comes to a project like constructing a book, what’s actually worth including between the covers?

Memoirs

Your knowledge is invaluable.
Books work great with personal accounts.

Photo Books

When you open up a photo book,
the memories will just fly out.

Military Histories

Wars hold many memorable moments. It’s time
to put them on paper so others can see them.

Biographies

Everyone’s life is an amazing story to tell.
Record yours on paper for the world to see.

Family Histories

The story, the origin of your family line is
worth documenting a hundred times over.

Reminiscences

Bring past events back into the present.
Relive the great moments of history.

Why should I choose to use books?

They Last

Books can last for centuries. For generations. There is no more permanent way to preserve your story than with print. Nor is there a more widely useful medium for sharing your memories with a wide audience.

They’re physical

Reading a book is an experience. One, technology rarely offers. The feel of the pages, the weight of a book. Plus, tomes are accessable at all times, straight off the shelf.

Presentation Shines

Technology is useful, but it has its limits. A printed document gives you a much larger range of options and flexibility. We take every cost to present your story as it actually happened.

At Gould – we LOVE books

Our History

We have been booksellers since 1976. For a time in the 1990s we handled the pre-printing (book set up and printing or print brokering) for about 250 private publishers – from simple short run saddle stapled books of a few pages through to large runs of case bound books of over 1000 pages.

Our Expertise

Your work is precious and we work with you to produce the best possible product to preserve your stories for future generations. We can advise you on areas such as page design, photo handling, creating an index, estimated production times, working within your budget, and many other aspects.

How can we help you?

Scanning

If you need documents, letters, or photos scanned come talk to us. We have proper equipment that can accurately reproduce images that are bright, sharp, and clear.

Graphic Design

We love to make your book look amazing. We can can give you advice with laying out your book, and put together a cover design that properly represents the story inside.

Marketing

If you’re not quite sure how to go spreading your book around, we can help you here! We include a free flyer that you can send out to gauge interest for your book.

Marketing

We’ve been printing books for over 40 years, and so, we understand quality and presentation. Your book should last for many years to come. We ensure it does.

Talk to Alan or Steve today to start creating your book!

We have been booksellers since 1976. For a time in the 1990s we handled the pre-printing (book set up and printing or print brokering) for about 250 private publishers – from simple short run saddle stapled books of a few pages through to large runs of case bound books of over 1000 pages.

We no longer generally offer book layout services, but we can print a book that you have set up. We can offer a range of printing options to suit your budget and preferences:

  • print one book or 500 or more
  • print initial batch in safe quantities and reprint as needed
  • print on basic low-cost or enhance your book with more upmarket papers
  • printing in black/grey is most cost effective, but colour can be used when needed
  • binding can be basic with staples or tape, enhanced with wraparound card covers – or case binding
  • we can help with the cover design
  • we can incorporate a searchable CD version of your book with each printed book at little extra cost if this is of interest
  • we can advise you on an ebook version to offer as extra option if this is of interest

Although we don’t offer book layout services as we once did, there may be some instances where we can consider this or at least advise and help you to do this. Regardless, it is wise to talk to us (or any proposed printer) early on to ensure the best format is chosen. We can also advise on things like page design, current style, photo handling, the best ways to handle an index, production time required, etc.

Your work is precious and we work with you to produce the best possible product to preserve your stories for future generations.
