“Simply the Best!”

★★★★★

written by HelenJBailey on 17/10/2022

I cannot thank BPUK enough for seeing my project through from beginning to end, especially Jozane who has the patience of a saint and all the knowledge and experience that has made this process a success. Thanks to BPUK I am now the proud author of The Bumper Book of Double Learning. This wasn't a straightforward publication as the hardback spiral bound book also comes with a smaller paperback which fits inside the front cover of the main book. This required scaling down and lots of other technicalities which only BPUK could achieve. I had previously discussed ideas with other companies and not only did they clearly not have the required expertise, they were also not nearly as cost effective, so Im happy to say that from first submission to publication, I'm a very happy author with a top quality book that is selling well! Thank you for making this available on Amazon and thank you JOZANE FOR LITERALLY EVERYTHING over the last few months!!!

“Worst print-on-demand service on the market”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Shaylao431 on 05/01/2015

Posting this mainly as a warning for anyone out there that might be interested in printing their books It started as a small order of 10 A4 print-on-demand books. I was given the first measurements needed for the covers, which I passed on to my designer. Later on while submitting the manuscript in pdf format, I was given another set of measurements for the covers and told that the ones before those were wrong. At that point the covers were already made and I had to get my designer to re-adjust them. A week later, I received the digital proofs of both the inner book and the covers. The cover proof was completely butchered, cropped, cut and re-aligned like nothing that made any sense. I contacted them and was told that it was because the spine was not of the correct size. I argued that the measurements were the ones they asked for but agreed to adjust it on my side. I was given yet another set of measurements and had my designer adjust it again. Eventually the second version of the proof came out, where the book image cover was shown as well as the corners and the bleed areas. Happy with the result, I accepted the proofs. Two weeks later I receive the books. I had the nastiest surprise when I saw that the actual covers have been cropped and the margins weren’t at all like in the digital proof. It was so bad, the right side of the title was cut, and part of the spine bleed into the back cover. As a note, there is 11mm between the title's end and the edge of the image I provided (not including bleeding area which I left 5mm of) I contacted them again and explained the situation. They asked me to take photos of a book and send them. I did that and they later on contacted me and said that I will need to send a book back for them to ‘investigate’. A whole week later after I sent the book, I got a call telling me that the cover measurements were actually wrong again. They offered to fix the cover by resizing the spine (their spine calculator was broken apparently). Another week later, they call me to let me know they can’t actually print and gloss the cover on those size and that they’ve spend an entire week trying out different methods. They said they would have to print the cover on a smaller paper than A3 (a couple of cm shorter) but they will resize the image accordingly and send me a bound proof first. I don’t hear from them for a while. At that stage I was almost 2 months into the order, with not even a proper proof. I e-mail them about it and they tell me that they will be sending the entire order shortly. When I ask them why they won’t provide the proof we agreed on, I was told that it’s because they want to finish the order as soon as possible as to not keep me waiting. Eventually I get the parcel with the new batch. The right end of the front cover no longer cuts the title, but the margins are still not like in the original proof. The title isn't centered properly and the area on the left side of the front cover near the spine that bends to allow page turning bites into the title. At this point I was already late with my project deadline (the entire thing was an assignment for university), so I just gave up. TLDR: Stay away from these non-professionals. They don’t do any quality assurance and post whatever comes out the printer without checking, their designers are incompetents that can’t even give proper measurements for the cover image (4 sets of measurements later they still didn’t get it right), and even worse, on their first try they sent me the books printed in a lower quality paper instead of the one I ordered (I can tell because the spine area is 6-7mm thicker on the second print, where I assume they used the 100gsm paper I requested). Always take your time and browse around for print on demand services that can actually do their job. And another important lesson I learned: ALWAYS, no exceptions, request a bound proof, even if the digital proof makes the order cheaper!

Give Inky Little Fingers a try - I've used them a number of times and the quality is always good. Once only sent two books, when I'd ordered three, but corrected this the following day and received an extra one free. It's easy to get someone on the phone.
