Your book, Your way
MAKING EVERY BOOK UNIQUE
We have a number of options to make your paperback or hardback book unique to you. Our paperback books can now have french flaps and our hardback books are available as cloth-bound wibalin with either gold or silver foil-blocking.
As expert book printers, all of us here at ImprintDigital have a passionate, enthusiastic and dedicated attitude towards making high-quality books.
We use sheet-fed digital printing machines for both our text and cover printing jobs. This means we can offer our customers a wide selection of paper types for text and cover printing with consistently high quality. It also lets us offer rapid turnaround times for customers as the set-up time for new paper stocks is minimal.
The cost of all our short-run digital book printing services can be worked out by using our online price calculator. You are able to select between paperback and hardback books and if you require any colour pages or plate sections. As we are mainly a short-run book printer you will see that the prices for run lengths under 1000 copies are very competitive.
The price calculator is easy to use, a step by step tool that guides you through the book printing process. You can even create an account and save all the quotes you have made and then convert any quote to order if you wish. When the order has come through you will then be able to send files to us through our Hightail Dropbox.
Questions and Answers
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
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.
