Family Tree Printing Problems and Solutions

If you've been trying to successfully print your family tree, and have encountered problems such as:

  • Printing your family tree from a PDF file won't work correctly.
  • You can't print your OnePage Genealogy chart because it's password protected and you don't have the unlock code.
  • Printing from a postscript file won't work correctly.
  • Your local printer won't allow you to install your genealogy software on their computers.
  • You can't print a family tree chart larger than 6 or 8 feet at your local printer.
  • You're having trouble printing your family tree to a plotter.
  • You can't find a service bureau to print your chart.
  • You can't get your GEDCOM file to print your chart.
  • You can't get your genealogy chart to print on banner paper.
  • Your printed family tree chart doesn't look like print preview in the software program you designed it in.
  • Your printed genealogy chart has been shrunk in size by the printer.
  • The quote from you local printer is more than you can afford.

Chances are you've come to the right place.  We specialize in printing family trees from any genealogy software program.  As a matter of fact, family tree charts are the only thing we print!

There are numerous problems associated with correctly printing a large family tree chart. Local print shops and self-service printers are not equipped to deal with these problems. In order to print large family tree charts correctly, your genealogy software must be installed on the printer's computer. Trying to successfully print your chart from a postscript file or a PDF file usually doesn't work for most people.  We've heard many horror stories from customers who ran up large printing bills at their self-service printers, and never were able to print their charts correctly.  At a self-service print shop, you're paying for the paper regardless of whether your charts print correctly or not.

Because family tree printing is our specialty, we can also spot many common problems in chart layout and design before we even print.  This allows us to call you and offer suggestions for a better finished project.  The majority of times we can make any changes you authorize without you having to resubmit you genealogy data file to us.  This saves you time and results in a nicer looking family tree.

Please call us at 630-653-8400 (international callers can also see below) or e-mail us at if you have any questions about our genealogy chart printing services.  And, if you haven't already done so please watch the video about our services.
