Many thanks to Biddles for an excellent production of my book and friendly and personable service.Robert Foster, London
Being new to self publishing I had no idea how to go about it. I found Biddles & could not have been luckier. Nigel and team always helped with all the necessary advice and tips, undertook cover design and books delivered on time. Out of 10 an easy 12.Tony Frazer-Price

"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"
"We are absolutely delighted with our books. The quality of them is excellent and the process from submission to print has been made easy by Biddles."Alison & Robin Shearer - creators of Pickle goes on Safari
"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

"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

"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
