Hardback Book Binding

Hardback books offer sophisticated presentation and a durable finish. They’re perfect for literary or artistic projects, as well as corporate publications that require a bit of finesse.

If you’re planning to self publish your book and want it to look that little bit more special, hardback binding is a brilliant choice.

With a number of binding and finishing options available, our hardback books can be customised completely. Popular finishing effects include embossing, debossing, foiling – you name it, we can do it!


Our high quality booklets are produced to an excellent standard to your exact specifications.

We know your booklet should be a representation of you or your company, and as such we guarantee brilliant results and reliable service every time.

Our booklet printing service is perfect for catalogues, newsletters, magazines, brochures, theatre programmes, instruction manuals and more.

Paperback Books

Paperback books are the most popular book type, and a great option if you want to publish your own book.

A paperback book is the perfect companion for the avid reader – it’s unfussy, dependable, and you can easily carry it around with you wherever you go.

Sometimes referred to as softback books, paperbacks are a brilliant option for a wide variety of book styles. Novels, children’s books, short story collections, poetry collections and travel guides are all often printed as paperback books.

Paperback books are more cost effective than hardback books, and they’re usually printed quicker, making them perfect for large print runs.

Leather Bound Books

Sometimes, only the best will do. Leather binding is the ultimate in high quality book printing – the perfect option for special projects that call for a bit of luxury.

Our expert process marries traditional book binding techniques with cutting edge printing technology to create magnificent results.

We have a number of different types of leather available in a wide range of colours, and plenty of finishing options to choose from.

Our gorgeous leather covers usually improve with age and handling, so your book will look beautiful for years to come.

Coil Bound Books

Coil bound books are highly durable and have the ability to lay completely flat, no matter how many pages they have.

Coil binding is the perfect option for books that need to be used often, or opened and closed regularly. It’s ideal for diaries, recipe books, annual reports, notebooks and reference books.
