Printing a book – What can possibly go wrong?

Printing is a complex process even though the printing is digital and automated.
Things can go wrong at every stage for example the type of paper, trimming, margins as well as occasional damage caused by couriers.
We acts as an intermediary between the author and the printer to ensure that the author is protected from printer problems.
Although the author is asked for payment in advance, we don’t pay the printer until we are satisfied that the books are of an acceptable quality.
We also arrange for any faulty or damaged books to be replaced free of charge.

Delivery Schedules – Hope for the best – plan for the worst?

When a book is close to completion, the author is often anxious to get some books delivered for a book launch or exhibition.
It is important to allow enough time for things to go wrong and build this into any schedule.
Printer time estimates can slip; equipment can break down; printers can become overworked – particularly close to Christmas; deliveries can go missing and don’t forget that the purpose of a proof copy is to ensure that there are no problems with the printed books – so if possible, you should allow time for a second proof.
We will help you to manage your schedules and will act on your behalf to resolve any problems that do occasionally occur.
