About archives@work

We help bring your archives to life

All too often a club's artifacts and memorabilia sit stagnant in a box, file cabinet or display case. We partner with clubs to find the stories behind those artifacts and bring them to life – through written content, custom artwork, displays, and exhibits.

We help organize and protect your archives

We assist clubs with the purchase of archival, acid-free storage supplies like boxes, sleeves, folders, and envelopes. We help sort through archives and create organized categories, series and collections that make finding items fast. Easily accessible archives will stimulate their use and help spread your club's history. 

A team of experts

There are many skills needed to properly research, organize, protect and display archives. We have assembled a team of expert archivists, writers, restorers, photographers, framers, exhibit designers, artists, printers, and more to help put your archives to work.

The story of archives@work

archives@work is born from my love of history, design, golf... and the country club life. I have been a lifelong member of a 128-year-old club that has hosted 5 USGA championships. I was a member of the University of Florida's golf team and still compete at the state level. I have owned a design and marketing company for 30+ years.


Recently I was asked to design a book commemorating the 125th anniversary of my club. It was great fun. The book design project turned into chairmanship of the Heritage Committee which turned into numerous projects – all designed to educate the membership about the club's history, build club pride, enhance our club brand, and attract prospective members. 

The projects were fulfilling and well received. They utilized my experience as a club member, my talents as a designer and marketer, and my passion for history. I decided to offer the same services I provided to my club to other clubs so they can enjoy all of the benefits of an active archive.
