Time To Print

  • Time to print is in "working days" from the time that you approve your proof; Monday-Friday, excluding Bank Holidays. If your proof is approved by 9am then that day will be counted as one of the working days, otherwise it is not.
  • If you do not have a credit account with us we cannot schedule your job until it is paid for.
  • If we are designing your artwork, the time to print does not start until the artwork is created and you have approved your proof.


We are happy to send out a sample pack so that you can see the different types of paper and the quality of the printing. Follow the link on the menu to order some free of charge.

We include next working day delivery in these prices. Bear in mind that "working days" are defined by the courier company as Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, excluding bank holidays. This is not a guaranteed next day service, though you can pay extra and order this. Although it's not always possible, it's a really, really good idea to build an extra day into your schedule "just in case"!


These prices are from your PDF electronic original. If you need artwork designed, please email us with your brief and we will be pleased to give you a quotation.

Why Use PUR Binding?

PUR binding offers a much more secure bind for coated (gloss and silk) papers and a more flexible spine, compared to EVA (hot melt) binding. Most "on line" printers can't offer PUR binding with a proper industrial binder, as these are extremely expensive machines! Inky has two heavy duty industrial binders: one EVA and one PUR, so that you are sure of a secure, commercial quality bind, no matter what paper you choose.

What Can I Use Them For?

These books are the same as the "softback" books that you see in bookshops. We can make small ones, like a novel, or big ones like a "coffee table" book. Some of the uses are: yearbooks, short run book publishing, manuals and reports.
