A solution for all budgets

Our procedure

  • Advice

    1. Advice

    After you have requested an offer, we can decide together on the desired level of service. If you would like some advice about the package that best meets your requirements, you can always send us an email or give us a call.

  • Order

    2. Order

    You will immediately receive an email asking for information so that we can finalize your order. This concerns the following: the delivery address, the invoice address, the desired delivery date, whether or not you wish to apply for an ISBN, etc. Based on your desired delivery date, we will immediately prepare an exact schedule.

    This email will include the submission instructions and advice on your selected package.

  • Layout

    3. Layout

    After you have chosen a layout style, we will create a design for part of the submitted files. After you have approved the design, the remaining files will be laid out in the same style.

  • Proofs

    4. Proofs

    You will first receive digital proofs of the laid-out file in PDF format. If you wish to make any corrections, please communicate these so they can be implemented. We will then send you paper proofs. These proofs consist of a loose-leaf copy of the inside pages and a cover. We will enclose an info card with extensive notes.

    Please inform us by email if, after checking, you approve of the proofs. If you would like to make any changes, we will of course implement them before commencing production.

     

  • Corrections

    5. Corrections

    It is important that the files you wish to submit are carefully checked and are therefore definitive. The package includes one hour of corrections. This is usually sufficient for files which have been carefully checked. If we have to make many corrections, these will be charged at an hourly rate of €55.00 excl. VAT.

  • Completion

    6. Handling

    We will produce the books ourselves; we will print the pages, print and laminate the cover and bind the books. Your books will be appropriately packed in boxes and placed on a pallet. 

    Delivery will take place the next day at the agreed delivery address. Someone will have to be present to take delivery of the books between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on the delivery date. If no one is available to accept delivery, the books will be delivered the next working day. Please note that there will be a charge for this repeat delivery.
