A simple, quality showcase for your personal story
The ‘Ohana Package is designed to help you self-publish your memoir, family history or corporate message in a limited quantity—as few as 50 copies. Our Legacy Isle editors will work with you to polish your prose while our experienced book production team sets your text and images into your choice of template designs. With the standard package, finished copies have a black-and-white interior and full-color softcover.
You should consider the ‘Ohana Package if…
…you simply want a professionally edited and produced book to distribute among a small group of friends and family. The ‘Ohana Package is an excellent way for individuals or families to chronicle their stories and traditions and preserve them in book form. This option goes well beyond the basic click-and-order books available online or at photo centers—we edit your text for grammar and clarity, and a live production assistant will place your book into an attractive layout.
…you are a business person or company looking to share your expertise with your clients or potential clients. A book is an excellent calling card that can help you promote your business. The ‘Ohana Package provides services to help you produce a book you can be proud of, whether you give it away as a premium item or offer it in a retail environment.

If your images are not already in high-resolution digital format, basic image scanning services are part of the package for the included 20 images.
