If you’ve gathered your narrative text and images, you’re ready for the design and publishing phase in order to create the most amazing book your family will ever see! The sooner you engage a book designer, the quicker you’ll be proudly giving out your family storybook as gifts.
Design Slow or Fast: Save Money
Our professional book designers can design your family storybook one chapter at a time, or in money-saving bundles of 3, 5, or 7 chapters.
Use our friendly Book Design Hub to upload your text and images and then make some style choices.
After you’ve submitted your content you’ll receive a print-ready design of your book chapters in as soon as seven days.
Consultation And Re-Edits
All book design services come with online consultation sessions, online media storage, and one round of re-editing. That is, we lay out your submitted text and images into a pleasing design based on your style choices.
- You’ll receive a link to Version #1.
- Then you review Version #1 and decide that some changes are needed to the design, or some words need to be replaced or re-ordered, or you want to replace one image with another.
- After that first round of re-editing you’ll get Version #2 of your book chapter to review. It will be ready for printing!
… when you purchase any of our book design services you’ll receive an automatic free upgrade to Creator Membership for three months… An $87 value!

Organizing & Curating
Two 45 minute online sessions with a professional designer to help you organize, sort, and curate the content you’re considering for your family storybook or movie.
One can feel overwhelmed and conflicted when trying to decide what to include in a family history storybook or movie.
Which ancestors? Which stories? Which photos? Which video clips? Which genealogical information? Besides emotional attachments and the fear of missing something or trying to live up to family members’ expectations, there’s the sheer magnitude of the average family’s collection of stuff.
During two different 45-minute online sessions, meet on Zoom with an experienced family storybook or video designer to organize, sort, and curate your content. These sessions are formulated to give you a simple strategy to move forward and hone in on the content you need for the next chapter of your book or section of your family movie. You’ll learn effective ways to organize your content so you can find it later.
Once you purchase this product we’ll send you some date and time options. Select a time that mutually works for you and one of our skilled consultants a Zoom invitation. The feedback that we’ve received from clients is positive about this product.
“I was in a mess. I had text in one place. In fact I had multiple versions! Then I had photos on my phone, photos on my computer and photos in so many boxes in the attic. The team at Family Movie Story Books helped me to organize everything into folders and name everything so I could find stuff. Whew! Thank you Barbi and Cory, you were a great help!” Evelyn, Canada
