With over 125 years of printing experience behind us, we provide a level of book manufacturing craftmanship and publishing understanding that no other book printer can match. We promise not to blind you with jargon and will take the time to talk to you about your publishing project.
Digital book printing for the short run and offset litho printing for the long run
Publisher's Choice® is our award winning digital book production service which gives you all the benefits of the print-on-demand model but at prices you can afford and the quality you want. Traditional Choice allows you to move from short run digital printing to offset litho printing for titles that take-off and require a longer run. We use the same paper stocks on our digital and litho presses so if sales slow down again then you can move back to Publisher's Choice® without compromising on quality.
Short run and long run colour book printing services
Illustrated Choice offers stunning quality for black and white and colour books with a high level of photographic content where quality of reproduction is paramount. Excellent quality short run digitally printed illustrated books can be printed at a unit cost more commonly associated with much longer print runs. We also offer offset litho colour book printing for longer print runs.
Saddle stitched / two wire booklets in colour or black and white
For books that are too narrrow for us to bind with a spine (typically less than 64 pages) then we can produce digitally printed saddle stitched booklets in black and white or colour throughout. These are ideal if you want to produce a couple of chapters of your book to market test it.
