Imprint have printed my last two books, and I've been very pleased with both of them, and with their customer care. Excellently packed, and altogether a top-class operation.

I rarely call a business outstanding, but Imprint Digital have proven on more than one occasion that they are the best printers in the UK. My first print run last year was perfect - I received a proof copy and then went ahead with a short print run.This time around, my order had a very short deadline, due to a bookshop offering to stock my new title. I got in touch and placed an order, and the team went above and beyond to help me meet the deadline. Not only that, but even without a printed proof copy this time around (due to time constraints on my end), the books still look absolutely perfect.This company have my loyalty for life, and I wouldn't consider any other printer when it comes to my next projects. Thank you to the whole team.

From initial requirements capture, to a prompt turnaround proof, the team at Imprint Digital are a pleasure to work with. The initial print run arrived within 7 days and look amazing.

Imprint Digital are the real deal. From the get-go, I was surprised by their brilliant customer service. If only other companies ran their Live Chat service like these guys do! Amazing service, great prices, high-quality products... I cannot fault them, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.They do a good sample book too, of their different paper options and what not. I'd recommend getting hold of that before ordering prints from them; it helped me a lot.

I'd never heard of Imprint Digital but when it came to looking for a printer to produce my book on the 1974 Flixborough disaster I resorted to Google, Imprint Digital were highlighted and I enquired further with them.It wasn't a small order, 500 hardback books of nearly 400 pages (63,000 words) in A4 with 200 colour and black and white photographs/maps and diagrams.I'd never written a book before so asked for advice and suggestions, Evie was the pre-production assistant who took me by the hand and guided me through the entire process !Nothing was too much trouble for her and her replies to my constant emails were almost instant and always within a few hours at worst. She added the title to the spine, helped direct me for an ISBN number, pointed out any little layout issues and many other things.I was sent a very clever 'guide to paper type, layout, font sizes and 'french flaps' to name a few, this guide was free of charge and helped me decide how to go about things and also that Imprint Digital were the people to go to!I had 3 different proof copies sent to me, all were received within a week of me sending yet another revised file and all at no extra cost!The quality is excellent and no payment was required until the order was sent to print.When it came to printing and despatch, I suggested a date and the pallet arrived at my home address by 10 am the morning after it had left their unit in Exeter some 280 miles away.I cannot speak highly enough of Imprint Digital and would recomend others use them. I will certainly be using them again for any subsequent printing jobs.I wish I could give them 10 stars !!!!

When I say "Five Stars", I really mean "Five Stars"! Louise and her team offered incredible service from start to finish on my training manuals; I never had to worry about a thing. They even caught an error in my print file that slipped by me. On the ball ... speedy responses/updates ... PLEASANT PLEASANT PLEASANT, QUALITY QUALITY QUALITY, and very reasonable pricing. If you want a great product, with diligent and kind service, from real people ... please skip the anonymous online printshops and trust these guys. They're great! Thank you -- Geoff O'Meara, Prison Yoga Project UK

Evie McGhin was so fantastic when helping me with my book orders. Considering we had a huge order to make she was always at the end of the phone when I needed her and no question was too silly to ask. She even went the extra mile to kindly share with me the technicals behind margins as that’s the part I always find trickiest. What’s also great, is their website, as it has many options for all sorts of printing you may need but you will definitely have a great experience if you work with Evie! Thank you Imprint Digital, you have been a pleasure to work with and Evie you are fantastic! Many thanks!

I can’t praise David and the team at ImprintDigital enough for their patience and understanding. My first attempt at a full novel-length story needed considerable guidance. Calm advice was given by return. The draft, then proof, documents were expertly pulled into shape. The finished book was well beyond my expectations. All produced in double quick time with no fuss. A great learning curve for me and a wonderful result. Thank you. Ian Duffill.

I expected good production values and service. And am delighted to say that the service I received was excellent. Staff are friendly, knowledgable and helpful. I've already had many of my own books published by established publishing houses before, but this was my first time publishing through my own micro-publishing company, and I'm so relieved that the experience with ImprintDigital has been fully positive all the way.

I am so impressed with the service from Imprint Digital! They responded to my initial email within minutes and before I knew it, the proof copy was on the way. The whole process was very fast and efficient with great customer service. I am so happy with my books and the quality is unmatched. The books were so well packaged so there wasn't a single damaged copy in there. Even before getting in direct contact, the website is really clear and intuitive, especially the quote calculator, and it tells you everything you need to know. I will definitely be using Imprint again!

Imprint Digital printed my first collection of short stories, The Gift, last month and I was very impressed with the service they provided from start to finish. The interface which provides instant quotes online is very easy to use, and helped me to tailor my requirements (number of copies, size of book, addition of French flaps, etc) to my budget. The proof was delivered with just a few days, and then the complete print run in just over a week. It was all much more seamless and quicker than I expected. I have received a lot of compliments from readers about how good the book looks and feels. I couldn't be happier.
We have worked with the team at ImprintDigital for over 10 years and they have provided impeccable service from day one. They are friendly and approachable and are always available to answer queries we have. They go out of their way to accommodate bespoke requests and respond quickly to emails. The service they provide is exceptionally fast with printed proofs frequently being supplied the day after they receive the book’s print-ready files and the full print-run arriving in less than 10 days after the order has been placed. The quality of the finished product is superb with books looking precisely as designed. We never hesitate to recommend ImprintDigital to all of our clients and when the books arrive with them, they immediately get in touch to tell us how impressed they are with the quality of the final book. To Jamie, David, Evie, Adam and the rest of the team at ImprintDigital: thank you for all the guidance over the years, it’s always a pleasure working with you and we look forward to continuing our successful collaboration in the years to come.

I cannot praise ImprintDigital enough. I approached them to print my first novel and within a few days of me sending them the files they sent me a proof copy. I made a few changes and four days later the whole consignment arrived. The quality is fantastic and really affordable. I could not be more pleased.

I arrived at Digital Imprint with a folder of 300 images which I wanted to make into a graphic novel. They first offered good advice by recommending some excellent typesetters who set to work and created the actual novel. Digital Imprint then liaised with the typesetters for the print run. Evie and the team were quick and efficient with an excellent level of communication throughout. They made everything easy and stress-free! Highly recommended.

Wow, absolutely blown away. The team at Imprint Digital answered our questions quickly and clearly, sent us a physical proof so we could check it over before printing the rest, and did an extremely beautiful and professional job with our book. They respected our deadline and just made the whole process wonderfully uncomplicated. I will use them again. Other companies could learn a thing or two from them!

Always had a great experience with Imprint Digital! They are very helpful, responsive and fast. They're very cost effective for small presses and bigger houses alike. I've used them through my day job, my side hustle as a micro publisher, and for independent publishing contracts I've taken on for one-off projects. They've always got the books to me really quickly and have always been very professional.

I am so grateful to ImprintDigital and delighted with the results. The quality of the printing is outstanding, the book looks magnificent - the colours, the paper, and the cover: they really put their heart into it. Jamie is absolutely marvelous, I had a wonderful experience dealing with her, great communication, very efficient help, diligent work and exceeding my (exigent) expectations results. I have been printing several books, but this is definitely the best place to address. I will certainly turn to them in future and am recommending them without any hesitation. Should you wish the highest quality printing for your books - look no further, it is here !

Evie and the team were excellent. I have to say in this day and age the people there go the extra mile a refreshing change from what I've had before.I can't praise them highly enough. So pleased with what they have done for me. If you want to print your book regardless of your knowledge of the print world these are the people to go to.

Writing a memoir for my ailing brother was enough of a challenge for a small group of friends and family. Getting it printed though could not have been easier with Imprint Digital, especially the hugely supportive Evie. Never done anything like it before but with a metaphoric holding of the hand she guided me through the process with consulate ease. Really fantastic customer service and an exemplary end product produced swiftly and at a reasonable cost. Can’t fault them.

As a complete novice, when it came to preparing my manuscript for printing I needed a lot of help and advice. Imprint Digital willingly stepped up to the plate and guided me through the formatting and design processes, especially in book cover design and how to get the best quality from my mixture of narrative and illustration. And it paid off! The quality of the final product is superb. My thanks to all the team at Imprint Digital for their dedicated service, and especially to Evie, their pre-press assistant, and I look forward with greater confidence to producing book two.

Recently completed my father's memoirs with Imprint Digital and couldn't recommend them highly enough. We worked with Evie, who was a pleasure to deal with, and made the whole process very straight forward. They sent out a physical proof of the book which allowed us to make final tweaks and gave us great peace mind about the final product. The book production has a real wow factor and has been much commented on. It looks as good if not better than most professional autobiographies I have read. It's a minefield for the uninitiated to select a company to print your book, but I would not hesitate to recommend them or work with them again in the future.

We came to Imprint Digital after much searching on the web and having previously had a proof made by one of the big online, self-publishing companies. Right from the get-go, the company were very responsive, provided us with a sample of their work and a very useful guidebook, that helps newbies like us. They were also very patient, answering many questions from someone who knows little about the print process. The final product did not disappoint, on time, well packed, high quality and at a competitive price. Would highly recommend this company to anyone wanting a small book run.

ImprintDigital were recommended to me by a couple of authors who had been very satisfied with the company’s work. I had seen the quality of the printed books and knew they’d be perfect for my own project. I found it very easy to upload my files and to arrange for a proof copy to be sent out. Being quoted an inclusive price – quantity of finished paperbacks, proof copy and delivery – made it easy for me to compare prices with other printers.My order was processed on a Monday and by Thursday morning I received my order – ready to send out to my own customers and to stock local retail outlets.First class service!
