We provide an experienced, outsourcing service to publishers. Using many of our established skills, Words by Design can pull all the elements of a publication together and make it happen. It may simply be a case of finding the appropriate printer at the right price; or, at the other end of the spectrum, we can manage the development of a complex book from author’s text all the way through to final delivery. Each project is unique and so receives a tailor-made solution.

The Anthology of African Christianity was a complex project, co-ordinating texts from numerous authors, and typesetting a book which will serve as a text book for an international audience.

  • For specialist printing and binding, we are pleased to partner with a range of binders, including Blissetts, who have been established for nearly 100 years and carries a Royal Warrant.
  • For digital printing, we use small independent printers based in the UK, the larger industry suppliers who print thousands of books an hour, and also printers based in Europe and elsewhere.
  • For traditional litho printing we place orders depending on the job and the extent, using printers here in the UK, in Europe and in China.
