Storyphile | Your life. Your story. For the people you love.

How picture books work

We all snap pictures to record birthdays, grads, weddings and other rites of passage. Why not pair your pictures with stories, wise words and good wishes?

Storyphile can help you create a special postcard collection or a book of mini stories to accompany your favourite family snapshots. You can print copies to share with your family and friends.

What you’ll need to do

  • Get started. (You’ll need to sign a letter of agreement and pay a 50% deposit.)
  • Decide the format for your mini stories. Will you publish them as a postcard collection or a book?
  • Work with us to go through your family albums and select your favourite photos.
  • Tell us the stories behind the pictures. (We’ll record your stories so we can shape them into content for your book or postcard collection.)
  • Review a first draft of the content and layout for your book or postcards. Let us know if there’s anything we need to fix.
  • Approve a final draft.
  • Decide how many copies you’d like to print.
  • Sit back and enjoy!

What you’ll get and what it costs
