While Cooke Publishing Company established and maintains its reputation in the school yearbook industry, the talents and expertise of our professionals make us aptly suited for a variety of projects. Everyone has a story to tell. Finding the right way to tell it is the challenge. Cooke Publishing Company has been helping organizations and individuals recount their stories and preserve their unique histories for more than fifty years. We help you bring to life, preserve and celebrate all of the unique people, events, memories and experiences that make up your individual history.
We have produced more than 200 anniversary history books for churches, religious communities, social groups, civil organizations, and businesses in the Philadelphia and tri-state area. Customers are as diverse as: The Delaware State Police, The Union League of Philadelphia, The Bryn Mawr Hospital, The Philadelphia Country Club, The Boy Scouts of America, The Brothers of the Christian Schools, The Sisters of St. Francis, St. Joseph, St. Benedict, St. Dominic, Our Lady Help of Christians, Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and numerous high schools that have reached anniversary milestones. We have published detailed histories, pictorial essays, directories, ad books, and family portrait publications, all in concert with major anniversaries at institutions. Churches of multiple faiths have produced twenty-five year histories with us, and once we produced eleven centennial histories during an 18-month period. No two looked alike, as we strive to design books that are personal and unique to each customer.
We have a package of suggestions that covers material gathering, copywriting and licensing, fundraising for the publication, organizing the content, organizing anniversary committees, and a schedule to ensure timely preparation, manufacture and delivery of the books. While hardback, sewn editions are the most popular publications; they are but one option. We produce perfect bound paper cover and hard cover editions, and paper cover stapled editions. We work within the desired budget of each customer and direct the process to ensure financial stability on the project.
