I know that some Print on Demand services excel in customer service, but this is personal. And the quality of the books is far beyond what you could hope to achieve from a Print on Demand service. I'm delighted

Having been an integral part of the print and publishing industry over the last 200 years, Clays have the expertise to print any number of books, from 1 copy to millions.
With the maturity of the independent publishing market and the growing demand for quality publishing services, we wanted to create a service that authors could trust. With just a small team, we get to know all of our authors inside out, all of whom are at different stages of the publishing process, providing as much or as little guidance as they need. If you need editing, design, typesetting, marketing and sales, or publicity services, then we have created a network of trusted industry professionals who we are happy to introduce you to.
Book production is complicated and guidance is invaluable when you are starting from the very beginning. There is no set formula for a book and we encourage our authors to explore a range of options, providing advice as to what is the most economical format, cover finish and text paper, and also how they can expect to benefit from economies of scale. Whether it is a high-end hardback or a standard paperback, we can help you to make your book not only a book, but also a beautiful object.
