We specialize in every aspect of book production from proofreading manuscripts, through book and cover design and typesetting, to barcode implementation and print.
A range of print runs are catered for: from as low as 100 copies to the tens of thousands.
Our complete hand-held service for individual authors, organisations and small groups
As well as our services for trade publishers we also offer a comprehensive hand-held service for individual authors, organisations and small groups. We will guide you every step along the way until you have a beautiful and professionally-produced book in your hands. But unlike the vast majority of printers and designers we don't leave it there. We can also draw on our years of experience of the publishing world to offer pre-production advice on issues such as acquiring ISBNs and setting RRPs, and post-production advice on marketing and distribution.
Our small-run volumes are produced to the exacting standards of our productions for market-leading publishers, yet offer a readily affordable alternative to far inferior print-on-demand productions. Whereas traditionally you would have had to order a substantial print run to achieve these standards, we can now produce high quality hardback and paperback (perfect-bound) books in quantities as low as 100, in black and white or full-colour! Whether you require a small booklet or an extensive full-colour coffee-table book, these economically viable print runs mean you don't end up with boxes and boxes of unsold books. So not only do they save you money as you are printing far fewer books, but they are better for the environment as you are using less paper.
If required, you can even commission us to professionally edit or research and ghostwrite text! So whether you require a family history or a memoir about a firm or organisation for a special anniversary or event, or a volume for an environmental or self-help group, or you just want to get your book of short stories or poetry, or your novel or children's picture book out into the world, please don't hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements.
