These days, when a whole library can fit into your pocket, an actual physical publication come with an special allure and value. You can touch it, flip its pages and read it with proper consideration. You can keep it on your nightstand or your bookshelf. Whether you want a book, a brochure or something in between, we’ll produce it for you.

A jubilee, an initial public offering or a grand opening are all occasions when you can use your history as a springboard for the continued journey forward. When your company rejuvenates its brand or establishes itself in a new market, a book can be a powerful symbol of the change that is taking place. A signed copy to shareholders, partners, suppliers or coworkers makes it extra personal.

At the Centre for Businss History, we help you tell your company’s history in everything from colorful coffee tble books to simple brochures. From anthologies to comprehensive narratives about yoru corporate heritage, told in a balanced measure between images and text.
