Thank you once again for printing my book and doing a wonderful job. I am so pleased and thank everyone involved in the production. It's so nice to deal with such a courteous and helpful company.Peter Kain
Just a quick email to thank you for the wonderful copies of my book, which arrived today. It is to the high quality that Biddles is known for, so thank you. Perhaps you would be kind enough to put it on your gallery on the website - you never know who might catch it on there! I very much appreciate your prompt and excellent service once again.Richard Stephens
Thank you and all your colleagues for your support. I am really pleased with the finished project and I am proud with what we have produced. Anyway, it’s been a great experience.Paul Sims
"From sending the original Word document to printing the books and all the kerfuffle of layouts and photos and everything else in between - something which, as a new independent author, I have been a bit nervous about along the way to say the least - Biddles have been a massive help, always happy to listen and advise on styles and processes. I couldn't have done it without them! Thanks to everyone at Biddles Books!"Neil Foulks "Road Trip New Zealand"
"As a first time author I was new to the process of getting my book published. Biddles were superb in every way sending through paper samples and offering expert advice on aspects of my book which I hadn’t considered. Even before going to final print they saved my bacon in spotting an obvious error which would have would have ruined the final product. Approachable and supportive in a non-sales way they helped me produce something which I’m very proud of. Many thanks to you all at Biddles." Alistair NoakesAlistair Noakes

"Forgot to mention to you that I loved the books!! And big thank you for all your help on this process. Without your commitment, the launch would not be the launch at all!"Adele Lim
"I was delighted to receive the parcel with my printed copies. They looked great, beautifully produced; paper, print and photos all first class. A really professional job. Above all, dealing with Biddles was so easy. I needed to make several changes right at the end of the process and I found them most obliging. Nothing was too much and dealing with Nigel was a real pleasure. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again."Susie Barnett
"Just a quick note to thank you for your help. The books look beautiful and we're very pleased with the production - exactly what we hoped for. You can quote us on that - service and the product were faultless and we won't hesitate in using Biddles again."Paul Pearson
"I just wanted to send you a massive thank you! Thanks so much for helping me achieve this in a very quick time frame (once I got the finished content to you!) at first look, the finished product looks fantastic. The weight is perfect, the binding is wonderful, the cloth and end papers have such a high quality feel and I love the head and tail bands with the flash of colour. It has turned out beautifully. Thank you so much again for all your help and work in getting us over the finish line. I couldn’t have done it without you."Crawford Coutts
"Biddles were faced with a book that presented many technical difficulties (poetry and prose, footnotes, diagrams bibliography). Their endless and painstaking attention to detail could not have been more patient or good-natured. The book is a pleasure to both read and handle. I strongly recommend their professionalism, they were a pleasure to deal with, in every way."Philippa Rees
"I am delighted with the quality of the work your company has achieved in the production of this little book. The typesetting, design, print and print finishing have all been of the highest order, and your public relations have made it a pleasure to do this little bit of business with you. The finished book, in both its softback and hardback versions, is of a professional standard that would be the envy of many a larger print house. Thank you for your care and attention to detail and for making this a publication of which I can be proud."J P Browne
"Once again Biddles surpassed themselves. My Historical Fiction hardback books were of an incredible quality and I'm glad to say that the first print run of my non-fiction book, The True Sayings of Jesus: the Nazarene Paradigm', in paperback surpassed my expectations. I'm am pleased to recommend Biddles to anyone who is looking for top quality, bookshop standard, printing."Antonio Sebastian
