Our affordable saddle-stitched booklet printing offers a swift and cost-effective solution for bringing your material to the market. With various printing options available, we're confident in meeting your specific needs.

Saddle-stitched booklets are ideal for moderate page counts, typically ranging from 20pp (printed pages) to 48pp. They provide a durable and neat finish, similar to stapled booklets, but with added resilience and a professional look.

Our saddle-stitched booklet printing stands out for its superior quality. It's an excellent choice for projects that require a lasting impression and frequent use.

The binding in saddle-stitched booklets is meticulously crafted, securing the booklet block to the cover (usually 240gsm, with other options available). We generally print on coated papers, significantly enhancing the colours and vibrancy of images and photographs in your booklet.

Imprint Digital printed my first collection of short stories, The Gift, last month and I was very impressed with the service they provided from start to finish. The interface which provides instant quotes online is very easy to use, and helped me to tailor my requirements (number of copies, size of book, addition of French flaps, etc) to my budget. The proof was delivered with just a few days, and then the complete print run in just over a week. It was all much more seamless and quicker than I expected. I have received a lot of compliments from readers about how good the book looks and feels. I couldn't be happier.
We have worked with the team at ImprintDigital for over 10 years and they have provided impeccable service from day one. They are friendly and approachable and are always available to answer queries we have. They go out of their way to accommodate bespoke requests and respond quickly to emails. The service they provide is exceptionally fast with printed proofs frequently being supplied the day after they receive the book’s print-ready files and the full print-run arriving in less than 10 days after the order has been placed. The quality of the finished product is superb with books looking precisely as designed. We never hesitate to recommend ImprintDigital to all of our clients and when the books arrive with them, they immediately get in touch to tell us how impressed they are with the quality of the final book. To Jamie, David, Evie, Adam and the rest of the team at ImprintDigital: thank you for all the guidance over the years, it’s always a pleasure working with you and we look forward to continuing our successful collaboration in the years to come.

Evie and the Imprint Digital team did a wonderful job making copies of my late Grandfather's memoirs. Fast, helpful communication all the way through guiding me through the process and keeping me updated of the costs of my many, many versions. I would definitely use them again.

I cannot praise ImprintDigital enough. I approached them to print my first novel and within a few days of me sending them the files they sent me a proof copy. I made a few changes and four days later the whole consignment arrived. The quality is fantastic and really affordable. I could not be more pleased.

I arrived at Digital Imprint with a folder of 300 images which I wanted to make into a graphic novel. They first offered good advice by recommending some excellent typesetters who set to work and created the actual novel. Digital Imprint then liaised with the typesetters for the print run. Evie and the team were quick and efficient with an excellent level of communication throughout. They made everything easy and stress-free! Highly recommended.

Wow, absolutely blown away. The team at Imprint Digital answered our questions quickly and clearly, sent us a physical proof so we could check it over before printing the rest, and did an extremely beautiful and professional job with our book. They respected our deadline and just made the whole process wonderfully uncomplicated. I will use them again. Other companies could learn a thing or two from them!

Always had a great experience with Imprint Digital! They are very helpful, responsive and fast. They're very cost effective for small presses and bigger houses alike. I've used them through my day job, my side hustle as a micro publisher, and for independent publishing contracts I've taken on for one-off projects. They've always got the books to me really quickly and have always been very professional.

I am so grateful to ImprintDigital and delighted with the results. The quality of the printing is outstanding, the book looks magnificent - the colours, the paper, and the cover: they really put their heart into it. Jamie is absolutely marvelous, I had a wonderful experience dealing with her, great communication, very efficient help, diligent work and exceeding my (exigent) expectations results. I have been printing several books, but this is definitely the best place to address. I will certainly turn to them in future and am recommending them without any hesitation. Should you wish the highest quality printing for your books - look no further, it is here !

Evie and the team were excellent. I have to say in this day and age the people there go the extra mile a refreshing change from what I've had before.I can't praise them highly enough. So pleased with what they have done for me. If you want to print your book regardless of your knowledge of the print world these are the people to go to.

Writing a memoir for my ailing brother was enough of a challenge for a small group of friends and family. Getting it printed though could not have been easier with Imprint Digital, especially the hugely supportive Evie. Never done anything like it before but with a metaphoric holding of the hand she guided me through the process with consulate ease. Really fantastic customer service and an exemplary end product produced swiftly and at a reasonable cost. Can’t fault them.

As a complete novice, when it came to preparing my manuscript for printing I needed a lot of help and advice. Imprint Digital willingly stepped up to the plate and guided me through the formatting and design processes, especially in book cover design and how to get the best quality from my mixture of narrative and illustration. And it paid off! The quality of the final product is superb. My thanks to all the team at Imprint Digital for their dedicated service, and especially to Evie, their pre-press assistant, and I look forward with greater confidence to producing book two.

Recently completed my father's memoirs with Imprint Digital and couldn't recommend them highly enough. We worked with Evie, who was a pleasure to deal with, and made the whole process very straight forward. They sent out a physical proof of the book which allowed us to make final tweaks and gave us great peace mind about the final product. The book production has a real wow factor and has been much commented on. It looks as good if not better than most professional autobiographies I have read. It's a minefield for the uninitiated to select a company to print your book, but I would not hesitate to recommend them or work with them again in the future.

We can't recommend Imprint Digital highly enough! We've used them for years and every book printed has been great quality at a fair price. Recently they helped us get a print run completed to meet our really tight deadline too. A super team - always ready to offer advice,if needed.

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 run.

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!

David and his team have been fantastic to work with. Very quick responses, very helpful, fast delivery and beautiful products (in my case several hundred copies of a poetry anthology of around 100 pages). Can highly recommend and will work this Imprint Digital again. Alexandra Loske (The Frogmore Press)

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.
