FAQs


Why should I choose Dennison Design for producing my book?

  1. We will work together to ensure your book has a look and feel that is unique to you. We can guide you through the minefield of paper stock, finishes and cover styles.
  2. You will work along with our design team to get the best possible result from your manuscript and images.
  3. You may only want to print a few hundred copies of your book printed to either test the market or simply because it may appeal to a limited market – a local history project for example.
  4. Quick turn round of your book. Once the final design has been approved your book could be ready in as little as two weeks for a soft cover book and four weeks for a hard cover book.
  5. Price is always a consideration and you will benefit from the close working relationship we have with local and national printers and finishers.

What is an ISBN number and how do I get one?

ISBN stands for International Standard Book Number and is a 13-digit number that is unique to your book. You need an ISBN if you want to supply your book to libraries, distributors and most bookshops. Dennison Design will supply an ISBN for your book and also register the title with Neilsen Book.

Who owns the copyright to my book?

The rights to your book will always be yours. We will store digital files of your book on our server allowing for future reprints.

Will I see a proof before my book is printed?

Yes, always. We supply PDF proofs at every stage of the design process and allow for revisions where necessary. A final printed proof is provided at sign off stage.

Do you offer proof reading services?

Absolutely. Options depend on the style of book and these will be discussed with you and the cost will be included in the estimate you receive from us. Picture books for example might only need light editing to check for spelling and punctuation whereas a technical journal may need an expert in that field.

How much will it cost?

We price each project individually depending on the size and number of pages in the book, the type and weight of paper used, what kind of binding and cover is being applied and the quantity to be printed.

How will I sell and market my book?

Self publishing a book always carries an element of risk but we have a wealth of experience with writing press releases, arranging book launches and advising on social media advertising – all of which can help with marketing and promoting your book.
