We came to Imprint Digital after much searching on the web and having previously had a proof made by one of the big... online, self-publishing companies. Right from the get-go, the company were very responsive, provided us with a sample of their work and a very useful guidebook, that helps newbies like us. They were also very patient, answering many questions from someone who knows little about the print process. The final product did not disappoint, on time, well packed, high quality and at a competitive price. Would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a small book more

ImprintDigital were recommended to me by a couple of authors who had been very satisfied with the company’s work. I... had seen the quality of the printed books and knew they’d be perfect for my own project. I found it very easy to upload my files and to arrange for a proof copy to be sent out. Being quoted an inclusive price – quantity of finished paperbacks, proof copy and delivery – made it easy for me to compare prices with other printers.My order was processed on a Monday and by Thursday morning I received my order – ready to send out to my own customers and to stock local retail outlets.First class service!read more

“HUGE THANKS AGAIN!  The books arrived bang on time this morning and everybody is very happy with them – the theatre staff very impressed with the packaging, your speed and accuracy, the quality of the books and the reliability of your service, and the cast and crew delighted with the books.

So once again a very big thank you from all of us, not just for the immaculate books, but for all your help in the process – you really make it easy for us to get such a beautiful result.”

“Quick! I really appreciate the fast turnaround time. And friendly. And efficient. Good price, which you need for poetry books as they’re hard to sell many of! Very easy to use thanks to the web-based quote system.”

“This is just to say that the books arrived exactly as we hoped, and we’re all delighted- it’s a really handsome volume. Thank you so much, not only for all your help but for being so efficient and good at it. We have two more books planned for this year, and we will certainly be printing them with you.”

“Imprint Digital are ahead of the game with their excellent online quoting service. I have found this so helpful over the years and have stayed with ID despite being able to get slightly better prices elsewhere because this tool allows me to quote accurately and easily. Plus their customer service is second to none. If imprint say the books are going to be delivered on a certain date, they will be, and if on the rare occasion this is not possible, they will always let you know and keep communication open and transparent. I highly recommend them."

We are proud of the relationships we have built with all our customers - some longer than 15 years. We don't just print your books and say goodbye, we are here to offer help and advice through every stage of production.

Questions and Answers


All files should be sent to us as press-ready PDF files. If you are unable to send files in this format then a word file for your manuscript can be sent. We will convert this file into a PDF file and send it back to you for checking. If you are happy then we can proceed to print.

We do not offer print on demand. We are a short-run printing company and produce books from as little as 10 copies. Unlike print on demand, we do not have any high setup cost and ordering copies of your book from 100 copies will get you a very competitive unit cost.

All books that we print come in different shapes and sizes, paper types, cover laminations and have many different options you can add to make your book unique. If you want to find out how much your book will be to print please visit our online quote calculator.

Orders can be placed on our website via our online quote/order form here. We are also able to accept orders by email as long as you know all the specifications of your book. If you are unsure of what specifications you would like for your book, please contact us.

Due to our specialist equipment and the time we have invested in becoming the specialist book printer in the UK we are able to print any size book between A6 (148 x 105mm) and A4 landscape (210 x 297mm). This means you can print your book at standard book sizes or you can have your book in a custom size.

This depends on a variety of factors but in most cases, paperback books are printed and shipped within 5 to 7 working days and hardback books are shipped within 4 weeks depending on the quantity. Please contact us if you have an urgent delivery timeframe.

Yes, we offer bound proofs for paperback books and hardback books. Please note that most of our hardback bound proofs are bound up as paperback books with a sample cover. We do this in order to get the proof copy out to you quickly and keep costs low. We can produce a complete hardback bound proof but the shipping time on this proof will be greater than our usual 1 to 3 days and may include an additional cost.

No, we don't, we print all books in-house in our production facility in Exeter. We don’t sub out any printing work to other printers or to any company abroad. Some extras such as foiling are sent out to a specialist company that we have been working with for several years.
