We recommend choosing a type of lamination for your order, as without protection colours may rub off along the folds and edges. Matt and Gloss lamination provide a high quality finish and stops paper-print cracking. Covers with solid deep colours (for example but not limited to black, purple), have a tendency to accentuate minor scuffs and scratches on laminated covers. We have put every effort into reducing such marks during the production process but for the best results we recommend using non-scuff velvet laminate.
Standard Mono or Photo Quality Colour Printing are our most popular choices, however we also offer Mono Printing with up to 20 percent colour page inserts. Photo Quality Mono Printing is produced using black ink on our Indigo digital presses onto a variety of paper stocks. Low ink coverage are specially designed solutions which only apply to jobs which have a total ink coverage of under 20 percent - please contact us to ensure that this applies to your order.
Page count refers to the number of sides (both printed and unprinted). It is double the quantity of sheets. All quotes are priced for double sided printing, if you require single sided printing, please contact us directly.
We offer a variety of paper stocks depending on the printing or finishing process chosen.
We offer a variety of fixed sizes, or the option for you to choose a custom size (however additional charges will apply for custom sizes)
We print from nothing but PDF files and therefore it's recommended as the best option to supply your files, however we do offer design and prepress services alongside scanning solutions.
If supplying PDF files, please ensure that the files conform to the Standard PDF/X-1a:2001, ensuring that all fonts are embedded and setup according to our file specification guidelines.
The only files we use for printing are .pdf format. If you are unable to supply your material in files that are PDFX-1a:2001 compliant with embedded fonts, let us do it for you from your Microsoft Word file

It is a legal requirement for six copies of every printed book to be sent to deposit libraries around the UK. We can save you the effort by sending six of the copies from your order to the relevant addresses.
If your book is intended for sale rather than personal use, an ISBN (International Standard book Number) is thoroughly recommended. ISBNs are available in the UK (in batches of 10 or more) from Nielsen Bookdata but it is well worth considering our publishing options (www.fast-print.net) before purchasing a batch. If you have your own ISBN, we can generate a barcode for the back cover of your book using that number.
To remain competitive, our quotes expire after 30 days, therefore we will remind you to take advantage of the quoted price in 7 days and then 2 days before the quote expires.
