we work with churches

Over 1,000 publications have been printed with Custombook. Today, we are digitizing our collection of church stories for archiving, which will not only preserve the church's heritage, but also enable church members to view their church's story on a smart device.


With over 50 years in publishing, we have the technical expertise to chronicle history.

Since 1958 Custom Studios has preserved parish history with detailed accounts and accomplishments of over 1000 churches, clergy, parishioners and communities throughout the United States.

Celebrating 53 years in business here is an example of the FIRST video edition of Custombook™.

Celebrate Church History with the e-Book edition of Custombook™

Over 1,000 churches throughout the nation have taken advantage of the Custombook™ program, providing every family in the church with a beautiful keepsake edition of the church's unique story, for their own library. In addition to our traditional keepsake edition, Custom Studios™ can provide a convenient E-Book edition of a church's history for your computer, tablet, or smart phone, as well as a narrated video edition. Church stories are part of America's heritage, as well as that of each community. Our historic archive of church histories is digitized, and is housed in the Library of Congress, where they are comprised of a very special collection. We will try to utilize as much volunteer helpers as possible to help keep the costs down.

In the Library of Congress.
