Our words

Capturing Cherished Moments.  Enriching Lives.  Journals of a Lifetime.

from you to me ltd was founded in 2007. Managing Director, Neil, was caring for his ill father when it struck him that there was so much that had been left unsaid and undiscovered about his father’s life. A keen public interest in family history was evident with the success of genealogy websites & the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are programme. However, Neil recognised that it is less easy to find interesting facts and stories about the names featured on your family tree. 

Asking questions that you’ve never thought to ask, telling stories you’ve never had the chance to tell, as well as the cathartic nature of writing, all inspired Neil to create from you to me and the first products, Dear Mum & Dear Dad were born. 1,000 copies were printed to test the market and these were sold through two local shops and a company website. These journals sold out within two weeks and, following great feedback, the first business vision was created and our story really began.

Together with Director & Company Secretary, Helen, and a great team of employees and partners, from you to me has, over the last 9 years grown significantly and expanded the product range and introduced them to many countries around the world.

Our Head Office is in Bradford-on-Avon, in the UK and warehousing and distribution facilities are in the UK and USA.  Distribution partners are based in Australia, Canada, Ireland and South Africa as well as one ‘under-licence’ partnership in Spain publishing Spanish & Catalan versions of the journals.
