                        Choose your proof and supply your files. We recommend you have a bound proof of your order, so you can see and feel what your printed book will be like and catch any problems. If you are confident that your files are correct, you may prefer a digital proof, which can be supplied more quickly.
                        The easiest way to print with us is to supply a print-ready PDF. Find our file supply guide here
                        If you have a hard copy of your book that you want to reproduce into a digital file, we can scan this and provide you with a PDF file – please note, the spine would be cut off the original book to put through our scanner.
                        If you have the Word file but are unable to produce a PDF document from this, we can also convert it to PDF for you.
                        If you’re not quite sure how to get your book in a typical book format or your cover isn’t looking quite how you want it, we do offer page layout and cover design services to ensure we can get your book looking just how you want it.
                        If you have purchased an ISBN number for your book, but don’t have a barcode on your book, we offer an ISBN generation service. We will produce a barcode and add it to your cover artwork.
                        If you are in the process of publishing your own book and need to supply the legal deposit libraries with copies of your book, we can produce the necessary six copies alongside your main order and send these to the British Library and Legal Deposit Office.
                        We offer eBook services to convert your PDF files into an ePub file ready for you to publish. We do also offer the whole publishing package for your eBook, including publishing and distribution, so that it is available for customers to buy.
