From one copy to hundreds: print as many or as few books as you want
Whether you’d like to print a single copy of your book or a really big batch, we’ve made it not only possible, but easy. Thanks to digital printing techniques, it’s entirely possible to do short print runs for affordable prices. One of the main advantages of this is that you no longer need to keep and store a massive supply of books anymore. This minimises the risk of outdated or unsellable stock, since you can update and print new copies of your book at the drop of a hat, whenever you need to. This method also ensures that paper waste is kept as low as possible.
But what if you do need lots of copies of your book? No problem at all. Starting from 400 copies, we’ll switch to traditional offset printing. This mechanical printing technique takes a bit longer – around 2-3 weeks – but the price per book is significantly lower.
What kind of book do you want to print?
You decide what your book is going to look like. Whether you want to print a novel, a thesis, a textbook, or a magazine, we’ll have a solution that suits your chosen format. When creating your book, you can choose between making it a paperback or a hardback. The latter is a bit more expensive but much more durable and gives your book an exclusive look and feel. You’ll also be able to select one of 10 different formats, including square and landscape options. Then there’s the choice of paper. We have 3 paper types available: white (80 grams), semi-gloss white (115 grams), and cream (90 grams).
You will of course also have the option of choosing if the contents of your book will be printed in black and white or in colour. Printing in colour is more expensive, but don’t worry – we will only charge for the actual number of colour pages in your book. As an example, let’s say your book is 100 pages long, and only 10 of those pages are in colour, while the rest is simply black text. We would then charge colour printing prices for those 10 pages and normal printing prices for the remaining 90. You can of course print the whole thing in B&W should you wish.
Printing your book has never been this easy
We’ve got more than a decade of experience with print on demand. As such we’ve managed to set up a streamlined system that guides you through the printing process step-by-step. You don’t need any technical knowledge at all; our platform will guide you through the whole thing. The process is divided into the following steps:
- Account creation
Create a free 24bookprint account and log in
- Create a new book
Click ‘New book’ and choose a cover type, format, paper type, and whether you want to print in colour or B&W
- Upload your manuscript
Upload your manuscript as a PDF or Word file. Still need to write or format your manuscript? Our platform can help you get started!
- Upload your cover
Either upload a ready-made cover, or create one from scratch using our phenomenal Cover Designer!
Check your files and the print previews, then order your book(s)! We’ll print your order and ship it to an address of your choice.
If you have all your files ready to go, you can create and order your book in a matter of minutes. You’ll receive it within a few days of placing your order. Is your book not ready yet? Learn more about how to create a book using our platform.
Is your book not ready to print?
Maybe you still need to finish writing, or perhaps you don’t have a cover yet. Whatever the reason, it’s no problem if your book isn’t done. When printing a book at on 24bookprint, you’ll need two files – the manuscript file and the cover file – our platform can help you with both by providing various tips and tools.
You can create your manuscript using any kind of word processing or layout software, be it Word, Pages, or InDesign. You can upload it as either a Word document or a PDF file. If you choose the former, we’ll convert it to a print-ready PDF for you automatically. Our Manuscript step also provides you with a wide range of tips about both the writing and formatting of your book.
The cover can either be uploaded or created directly on our platform using our Cover Designer tool. There’ll be a lot of info available here as well, and our Cover Designer is a surefire way to make a great cover even if you don’t have any kind of design experience.
Book printing: costs
We pride ourselves on being able to offer very affordable print prices. You get to decide how much your book is going to cost by tweaking the specifications (cover type, paper type, format, number of pages, and colour settings) and the size of your order (bulk discounts). You can print a book for as little as £6,57, with progressive bulk discounts starting at orders of 3 copies or more. You can explore the available options and compare pricing using our price calculator.
Shipping print books
The moment you place an order, a whole bunch of processes kick into action. Our system sends the most recent versions of your uploaded files to one of our printing facilities along with logistical data such as the size of the order and the shipping address. Everything is automated for maximum efficiency. Your manuscript will usually be printed within a matter of hours. The cover is printed separately and attached to the manuscript later. The whole process take about 3 – 5 days on average, including printing, binding, and shipping. Hardback books will generally take around 1 -2 days longer. As soon as your order has been shipped, you’ll get a confirmation email. In this email (and in your account) you can also view and download your invoice, should you wish to.
