As a large digital printing company, we are aware of our carbon footprint and the impact printing has on our planet. Over the years we have gradually reduced our carbon footprint and we are still implementing certain ways of manufacturing books to reduce our footprint.

Going paperless - We are almost a paperless office and only print material when absoloutley necessary. We use digital job cards for our order processing and send 99% of our invoices, statements and newsletters by email.

Recycling - In the book printing industry, it is no surprise that we get through a lot materials, be that paper, consumables etc. We recycle all paper, consumables and used electronics. We even have a special recycled 100gsm we print with often.

Deliveries - We have a free service for book deliveries to large book distribution companies. This is a free service sent on pallets that we offer our customers. It not only saves on shipping costs but also dramatically reduces emissions.

Transportation - 80% of the staff at are keen cyclists and cycle to work most of the time. When were not cycling to work we try to liftshare to cut down on costs and emissions.

Everyone I have had contact with has been extremely friendly and helpful and Imprint has always been very quick with production and delivery."

“The team at Imprint never fail to exceed my expectations on service and product quality. They are our go-to printer for all our prototype and small batch production projects and I would not hesitate in recommending them to others who have similar requirements.”

When we receive your files we will check over them to make sure they match what you have selected on your order form. We will also check the internal text and cover files for any errors that may show up when we print your book. Please note that the checks on files are only to make sure we can print your book on our printers. We do not check for anything else and so you will need to make sure all the proofreading and editing etc are all complete.

Printing your proof

If the checks are all good we will send your book to proof (if requested). We will print and bind a single copy of your book and send to you for your approval. The book will be printed and bound to the exact requirements of the finished book. Please note in some cases it is not possible to laminate covers and most hardbacks will be proofed as a paperback with a cover sample.

Checking your proof copy

When you receive your proof copy you will need to give it one last check to make sure both the text file and the cover file is good for printing. Things to look out for will be; the margin sizes in the text, page number alignment, font size, cover bleeds, image quality, and to make sure the spine fits the book correctly.

Proof accepted

If your book looks good and you’re happy with your book we will then start printing. Turnaround times depend on a variety of factors but we will aim to have the finished books to you within 2 weeks for paperbacks and within 4 weeks for hardback books. is a trading name of Imprint Academic Ltd; Company № 08013853 & VAT № 40904775. | Our registered address is: Seychelles Farm, Upton Pyne, Exeter, Devon EX5 5HY
