Bring your self-publishing dream to life with our book printing services

Writing the great Australian novel is an ambition of many people, however with the publishing industry becoming ever more difficult to crack, authors have to find new channels to reach readers. Self-publishing was once considered the realm of people whose books weren’t up to scratch, however the explosion of eBooks and online publishing has had knock on effects for the entire industry. Short run printing is now more affordable than ever and seen as a legitimate way to get your ideas out to the world.

We understand the ins and outs of how to create a top-quality product and we are backed by state of the art systems.

Book and Cover Design

You have written your book, and now you are looking for that WOW factor. Or you may just want a simple design for your Family History book. The Book Printing Company has you covered. We employ a number of highly qualified and experienced Graphic Designers, who have an in depth understanding of print design and the book making process. Often, we are supplied with artwork which is not suitable for print and additional cost are incurred by the author. To avoid all of those back and forth emails requesting changes and then forwarding the files onto us, try using one of our qualified designers, all of the bother goes away and all that is needed from you is the approval of the design concept.

Whether you’re publishing a simple text-only book or have numerous images and extras such as tables and charts, we will ensure that your book layout is of the highest standard.

How do we compare with other Book Printing Companies

Why do book printing costs vary so much?
Numerous technologies are utilised for printing books. Many of the larger international companies can produce books cost-effectively on large inkjet presses; however, there is a trade-off. You can only print your books in all colour or all black and white. If you want colour pages throughout your book, they may tell you that only certain pages can be in colour.
At the Book Printing Company, we use toner-based digital presses. This enables us to print any combination of colour and black and white that you wish. Our technology allows you to have your book published the way you want and cost-effectively. Why pay for full colour if you don't need to.
The other consideration is that we don't hide our printing costs in the commission charged on the sale of your book. The price shown in our calculator is the total cost with no hidden charges, and if you order 50 Author copies of your book, you will receive at least 50 books. Nowhere in our terms and conditions do we hide a clause which states that you could receive up to 5% less than your order quantity.
