Mono printing for paperbacks and hardbacks
Digital printing via Biddles’ award-winning Publishers Choice service gives you all the benefits of the print-on-demand model but at prices you can afford and the quality you want.
Traditional Choice gives you the freedom to move from short-run digital printing to offset litho printing for titles that really take off and need a bigger print run. There are also more opportunities for matching formats and papers on this service.
Printing with Biddles starts at just 20 copies, which is ideal if you are producing your book as a sample for potential customers or are compiling your autobiography for family and friends.
Short-run and long-run colour book printing services
Illustrated Choice offers stunning quality for black-and-white or colour books with a high amount of photographic content, where reproducing the images to an exceptional standard is paramount in your book.
Print runs, which start at 20 copies, can be produced on coated and some uncoated papers with digital printing allowing you to reproduce your photographs, paintings and illustrations to a high specification.
Additional copies can be produced and you will have the choice of either digital or offset litho printing so you can find the price that offers you the best value for money.
Copy Editing, Book Design and eBooks
If you would like help preparing your book for publication we offer a dedicated book design service to help you with all your book publishing requirements.
Copy editing your book ensures that punctuation, spelling, grammatical structure and style are checked and, in liaison with you, the copy is presented how you would wish.
There is no doubt that an attractively designed cover will increase the sales of a book and, if there is one area to consider spending money on producing your book to the highest standard, this is the one that we would encourage you to consider. The book design for the text and cover will be be created in professional typesetting software to ensure that your book is presented in the best possible format. The text can be integrated with illustrations, page numbers, running heads and preliminary copy and will be proofed to you for approval.
Scanning copy books
If no PDF files are available for printing then we can scan an existing copy book to create the print ready files. Please note that the pages will be scanned as images and so it is not possible to correct any of the text once they have been scanned.
