Wow! Book printed like off a shop shelf!
[Books]
I have written 15,000 word a story for my daughter, along with colourful illustrations and wanted a proper hardback book printed for her and other family members to keep. I was on a budget and wanting a balance of price v quality. I got the balance wrong.... the quality way out weighs the price! I opened the box and the wife's words were "wow! They look like you've just bought them in Waterstones!" Wonderful quality, amazing tool to proof the book and fast turnaround. They even had a mark on one of the books, tiny, they sent it anyway as an extra! 7 copies not 6. If you want a quality book printed, I put my name to them!
Fast turnaround, good quality

Easy to use, fast turnaround,great quality and great price - I would recommend if you need to get a hardback book printed quickly. My only (slight) difficulty was with the uploading process, I had to call a couple of times to be able to upload the back cover separately into the right box because it wasn't working, and I would like it to be clearer in advance about the fact that the end papers are blank and you don't count them when designing (I used Adobe Indesign to create my pages and I designed the end papers, so when I came to upload I couldn't use the endpaper and my page count was then out by four pages so I had to re-jiggle my design). It also wasn't clear that the covers and spine needed 8mm bleed instead of the standard 3mm that the rest of the pages (or if it did, I missed it). However these are small things and I would still highly recommend this service over other similar companies.
Fantastic service, and printing quality!!
[Books]
What a fantastic service this is! Not only was guidance given to ensure there were no errors with my printing but the quality of my printed book exceeded my expectations, and was fast and delivered on time! Will definitely use these services again!
Really helpful staff - good quality print
[Books]
After being let down by iPhoto software no longer printing albums we found this amazing company. We produced an a4 print of our photo album and they helped us sort out the technical stuff like the bleed regions and mark up. We have just received the photo books which are great quality and a good price for the handful of copies we wanted. Have recommended them already to friends who also used to print through iPhoto.
Brilliant service and quality

Info for file setup

Hardcover book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
Like all other products, we ask that the file is supplied as single individual pages, not double pages.
Important - your cover
When it comes to cover artwork setup, hardcover books are slightly different to our other products.
Most covers are made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover. The cover for a hardcover book is only two pages - a front cover and a back cover.
Endpapers
The inside front and back cover pages cannot be printed on. These are called Endpapers.
On the order, these places will be locked. This is important as it may throw the page sequence out, putting left and right facing pages in the wrong order.
There is a choice of Endpapers - either solid white or black.
Bleed
The cover on hardback books overhangs the inner pages. To make the cover, we need a very large bleed area on the front, back and spine. We ask for 20mm on all sides. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Spine
The spine should be supplied as a separate file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
The spine will also need a 20mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Quiet area
Within the cover page size we recommend a quiet area or margin of at least 8mm around the edge.
