Melbourne’s Leading Book Printers for Self-Publishers and more

Being published is an ambition for many people. However, with the increasing digitisation of the industry, it is becoming more difficult for authors to break into the major publishing houses.

Self-publishing made affordable with Melbourne’s expert book printers

The Book Printing Company makes it simple and affordable to create a physical product. eBooks have come a long way, but they still lack the legitimacy of a tangible item. In the past, short run printing was only within the reach of businesses or corporations, with annual reports, prospectuses, and the like. Advances in technology have made it increasingly affordable for more and more people to find professional book printers to take care of their project.

Our services offer a range of paper stocks and printing options, enabling us to create a final result that meets your vision. We can print in full colour for photographs and illustrations, on high gloss or recycled paper, and in different sizes. If you can conceive it, we can help to make it happen.

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.
