Set Style Charts-Filled In Fill-in-the-blank Charts

We often take our fill-in-the-blank charts to genealogy conferences.  And we often get asked, can you fill these in for us?  Well--we could, but they would need to be created and refined by a designer--until now.  We've added some of our most popular fill-in-the-blank charts to our line up of set style charts.  If you are sure your data is good to go, you can now order a set style chart that is easier and cheaper than our full custom charts.  They are still designed by our talented designers.  And they're put through our quality control tests to make sure they don't just come out like a run of the mill automated chart.  So they're beautiful on a budget.  Take a look:

Topeka 20x24 inches, 6 generations

Stockholm 20x24 inches, 5 generations

Mesa 24x36 inches, 8 generations

Denver 24x36 inches, 8 generations

Branson 20x24 inches, 5 generations

 
Boston 20x24 inches. 5 generations

They're all published with a crisp clear, readable font.

Set Style Charts--A family is a growing organism.

That's why a tree is such a perfect symbol.  With branches stretching up into the future, and roots stretching down into the past, the tree is a beautiful image of a family.  When we first started creating family history charts we thought trees were kind of cliche, but now we've grown to love them.  And we have so many beautiful representations we can use on your charts.  You can check some of them out in our gallery at familychartmasters.com/gallery 

So it works well that in design trends right now organic, earthy, nature themed decorating is super popular.  One of our favorite places to have retreats is at the Mountainside Marriott in Park City.  We decided to do a riff off some of the decorating elements found there.  Our talent designer Amy took the tree rings and turned them into a family history work of art.  

We named each of them after a species of birch tree:

 
Grandulosa Birch

Mountain Birch

River Birch
Sweet Birch 

And a super cool looking font.
 
You can order yours at familychartmasters.com/set-style.  They'll be a beautiful representation of your family and a beautiful piece of art for your walls.

You might need a quick draft copy of research you are working on, or you may be looking for something to hang up at this year's family reunion to let people write on and add information. Either way, be sure to take advantage of this sale.

Two deadlines to keep in mind:
  • Send in your final file between now and May 20th. We can't accept any additions for this offer after this date.

Start with sending your information in for a free consultation at familychartmasters.com/consult.  

Please collect all of the information you want on your chart before sending it to us.  While we are able to make minor corrections on charts, we can no longer start chart development or give quotes until all of the necessary family information is gathered.  

Good, Better, Even Better and Best

Now with the Set Style charts we have so many options for design, size, information, we're sure to have something that fits your need for a chart and your budget.  You can think of them as Good, Better, Even Better and Best.  Take a look:

Our GOOD charts are fill in the blank charts.  Generally in about the $30 range, depending on the paper you choose, these charts have blanks for you to fill in your family information.  They are great when you are still researching, or if you want to work on a family project together or preserve a grandmother's handwriting.  With 41 designer styles, ranging from 4 to 15 generations, you're sure to find something that fits your needs. 
Our BETTER charts are our working charts.  These are basic black and white or color coded charts that we print from your genealogy data.  With no online preview, and no extra design work, these are generally considered draft copies.  They are perfect for hanging up on the wall in your genealogy cave or taking to the family reunion and writing on.  These charts can go as far as  you want.  So far our record is 30,000 people which took 800 feet of charts.  If you have more than that we'd love to give it a try.
Our EVEN BETTER charts are our new Set Style charts.  These charts have a predesignated design.  You just choose the design, send in your information and we send you out the chart with your information.  These are more artistic, designer charts but without the process of working with a designer.  If you want a quick, inexpensive but beautiful chart to hang on your wall, these are perfect.  Initial copies start at $64 or $89 depending on the paper you choose, so extra copies come down to as low as $32.

Finally we have our BEST charts.  These are our fully custom designer charts with our online preview service.  If you are looking for something unique, with an amazing customer service experience, this is it.  Just send in your information for a free consultation and we'll assign you a designer that will work with you and send you mock ups until everything is perfect and you tell us to print.  Typically in the $300 to $400 range with extra copies at 1/2 price, these charts are amazing heirlooms that your family will enjoy for years to come. 
 
With all of our charts, you can just get started by going to familychartmasters.com.  Send us your information and we'll send you out the perfect chart for your family.  We're honored to be able to help you print and display your family history in a beautiful, engaging way.

Announcing a Whole New Chart Concept--Set Style Charts




If you follow our newsletter (and you should--just sign up on the front page of our website at familychartmasters.com) or if you follow us on social media (instagram, facebook or twitter) You will have heard about our new product.  We're trying a whole new approach to charts, and it is going to save you money!  That's always good right? 

With our custom charts, you work with one of our designers and we send previews and make sure everything is exactly the way you want it.   With this service, we can create any kind of chart you can dream up and make any corrections you need, but the online approval process isn't instant, and working with a designer can be a little more costly even though we've tried to keep the costs reasonable. You can see some samples of the amazing charts our designers have created in the decorative chart section of our gallery.

With our working charts, we dispense with the online preview and the design work, but we can't offer anything but the basic chart because we won't be showing you the preview so it is kind of hard to imagine what a more decorative chart is going to look like.  So we keep these simple draft copies and they're inexpensive but not decorative at all.  You can see some samples in the working chart section of our gallery.

Well we've finally come up with a middle solution that we know will appeal to lots of our clients. 

We're excited announce a new product line:

Annual Favorites 2022--And Even More Favorites

 As always, we've done some really beautiful charts this year.  And some of them just don't fit into a particular category--like the previous posts.  Here are a few more we wanted to share with you. 

This beautiful chart included the artwork of one of the descendants as the background for the tree.  What an incredible present and a great way to preserve and share the talents in your family!

This chart color coded several different sections of the family.  Our talented designers were able to fit all of this complicated family--which usually would have been a very wide chart--into a reasonable, frameable size.  But the information is still easy to follow because of the help that the color gives in understandability. 

This beautiful chart shows all of the children and ancestors of the main couple.  It includes crests for the two of the main family lines.  It utilizes the extra space where the ancestors are unknown to give the chart a title and some explanation.  The group photo on the bottom left completes the family story.

This family was able to obtain all of the photos for the current generation except one so we fit a silhouette in to complete the picture. 


This family didn't have any pictures to add to the chart but the silhouettes give it a classic feel anyway.  The grey tones are very popular right now and look modern but classic in any decor. 

We've already used this popular background again and again.  It is a great way to give it some color and a rich outdoorsy tree feel but it isn't too busy for a few pictures to be added for more interest.  Let us know if you want to try out this background too.  You're welcome to send in your information for a free consultation at http://familychartmasters.com/consult and we can create a beautiful masterpiece for your family as well.

Annual Favorites 2022-Cultural and Geographical Homelands

We love helping our users show of their heritage in unique and engaging ways.  And one of the things that most ties people to their heritage is their cultural and geographical heritage.  It is one of the ties that binds us back to our ancestors--that sense of belonging we have
 
Each family has a unique history and spreads throughout the world in a unique way.  The people who came together to create the family you have now may have come from many different places or just a few.  And the descendants of your ancestors may have spread out to many different places or they may have stayed in mostly the same place.
Expressing that geographical heritage through the places your family lived tells a unique story about their history.  If you find a family from Europe in the 20th century, you will have a very different history to tell then another family from say Africa or Asia or Latin America. 
Each heritage has unique circumstances and triumphs and tragedies to tell.  And each family has a rich heritage to be proud of.  Each of us have ancestors who survived against adversity and lived to tell about it.  If you haven't found your hero ancestors yet, you just need to keep looking. 
 And one of the things I love about family history the most is that it teaches us that we each have a little bit of the heroic and a little bit of the tragic inside ourselves.  The best kind of genealogy is the stories that are honest, and show the complicated nuances of our history.  There in that--that is something worth knowing and worth taking pride in.
