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?
Your knowledge is invaluable.
Books work great with personal accounts.
When you open up a photo book,
the memories will just fly out.
Everyone’s life is an amazing story to tell.
Record yours on paper for the world to see.
The story, the origin of your family line is
worth documenting a hundred times over.
Wars hold many memorable moments. It’s time
to put them on paper so others can see them.
Bring past events back into the present.
Relive the great moments of history.
Will your legacy last?
A tale worthy of a book.
Each one of us has a life story. Some are epic tales of heroes and battles.
Others, drama filled adventures of love and tears. Even with the ordinary
moments, your story is worth preserving.
Take others on your journey.
Right from the beginning your story has involved many other stories.
As you come to share your story with yet more people – bring them along
through the laughs and tears.
Don’t let your story die.
Memoirs, poetry, legacy, special occasions, local and family histories, stories of famous figures, or ordinary people – all of these will be lost if they aren’t written. Unless you pass it onwards, how will your descendants know how things were?
Technology lends a hand.
Advances in technology have made it so much easier to present your story well.
Old photos can be reproduced and cleaned up, and a clean design makes it so
much more enjoyable to read.

What’s so great about using books?
They just 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.
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.
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.
We love books
Here at Gould Digital, we understand your memories are precious, and have a passion to see them preserved. Whereever you are, communication is quick and easy – and we deliver the finished books right to your front door.
How can we help you?
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.
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.
If you’re not sure how to go about distributing copies around, we can help you here too. We throw in a free flyer or card that you can send out to people to gauge the interest for 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.
