Book printing

Doxdirect offers online book printing and book binding so you can transform your documents into beautiful, handmade paperback and hardback books that would fit right in nestled on any bookshop shelf.

Whether you’re creating your school yearbook, turning your gap-year journal into something really special, publishing your memoirs or unleashing your dissertation on the world, you can use our single copy book printing service to order from as little as 1 copy, or a full run of tens, hundreds or thousands!

As with all Doxdirect orders, you can customise your book with options like full colour or black and white contents and covers, as well as matt or gloss laminated covers to achieve the required look and feel of your product. You can also use our online Cover Design Tool to create a personalised cover for your book.

Book printing is perfect for…

Turning your diary or journal, collection of favourite recipes, PhD thesis, or that novel that has always been inside you, into a high-quality hardback or paperback book. Some Doxdirect customers have used our single copy book printing service to create comics, graphic novels, coffee table books, photobooks, Valentine’s Day gifts or birthday presents for their loved ones, historical records or other hobby related subjects.

Perfect binding for book printing

At Doxdirect we specialise in perfect binding for A4 and A5 size paperback and hardback books. Perfect binding means that the pages of the book are printed, and then bonded together with a strong yet flexible glue, which also fixes them to the hardback or paperback cover. The three edges of the inner pages are trimmed before being attached to the cover, resulting in a perfectly neat edge on all sides – hence the name ‘perfect’ binding.
