How long will it take – That’s up to you - it can take only 10 days if every thing is ready to print and you have done all your home work and the files are correct, and there are no more corrections – on the other hand, we have known a book to take well in excess of 8 months, due to the constant changes in the text and photographs and layout! Remember the more work that you can do the cheaper the whole process will be.

As each book is individual, we like to make sure that the cost we give you reflects accurately the costs involved and the discounts that are available for longer runs. Please fill out our online application form or print out this form and either fax or mail to the address provided on the form.
