About Us

What is StoryStarter?

StoryStarter is a new gift-giving service. We create beautiful collaborative books that let people know how much they matter to their friends and family.

Our books mix together photographs and text from the whole group - anecdotes, in-jokes, heartfelt tributes and more.

It all comes together in one incredibly moving gift book. Imagine everyone you know taking the time to sit down and say why they love you, or share their fondest memory with you. Pretty powerful stuff! That’s a book from StoryStarter.

StoryStarter is a digital platform created by Story Terrace. Story Terrace makes it possible for ordinary people to create their own personal biography to share life experiences with family, friends and future generations, by matching them with professional writers across the globe.

We're a company with a mission - to capture the stories that matter. That's why we've created StoryStarter, a whole new way to take a moment and focus on the important things in life.
