I have used the services of Precise Print for over ten years. I am a publisher of over 170 books, several of which have been printed by Precise Print. I have been very impressed with the quality of their work, the way they include the publisher (and often, in my case, the author as well) in the process, their careful attention to detail, and willingness to take on board suggestions and changes during the various stages of the printing process. In every way the word ‘precise’ is an apt description of Precise Print’s modus operandi and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants printing done.

From 2012 I have exclusively employed Precise Print to design and print my four novels and two non-fiction works. I have found the design and printing staff headed by managing director Sean Donnelly to be efficient, and always pleasant to deal with. My requirements are for unconventional language in the realm of Kiwiana, for blending in images with words, for realizing creatively my cover concepts, in the design of which Kim Wingate has been my principal converter of crude ideas to a creative reality. Both design and printing staff have not only been enthusiastic about my raw material, but have translated it into a professional and eye-catching product. I can rely on them to get what I want. There are many thousands of words that need to be presented accurately. A book is a complex undertaking. I have always been completely satisfied with their production values, their helpful suggestions and the way in which I can interact immediately with design and print staff in the same premises. It has been a joy to work with Precise Print.
Best wishes

I have been dealing with Precise Print, firstly, with my advertising brochure then to having Sean and his team design my book “Whatever Next”

I found them extremely helpful and professional from design to print. Then moving on to my latest children’s highly illustrated book fully showed the depth of the design team.

To those of you who may think of self publishing a book I have found Sean and his team go out of their way to be helpful and I have booked a spot for my next book to be printed by Precise Print.

Eleven Years of Adventures on the Waikanae Estuary

The team at publishyourbook.com / Precise Print & Design loved producing this gorgeous hardcover book for prolific local writer Mik Peryer, known in these parts as “the Birdman of Waikanae”. Mik has been writing a monthly newsletter covering the adventures of wildlife at the Waikanae Estuary & Scientific Reserve for 11 years, and has now compiled all that information into one volume. Copies are available from the author, and we reckon these hardcover versions look pretty snazzy if we do say so ourselves! You can contact Mik or find out more at https://www.kapitibirdtours.co.nz

Dream of holding your own book?

Do you dream of seeing your writing in print? Publish Your Book can help! Here’s a book that we printed last week – Anieke Geelen’s ‘We Were No Heroes’ combines the diaries and letters with historical documents and photographs to tell the story of three members of her family living in the German-occupied Netherlands during WW2.

From cover and interior design through to print, we can do it all for you. Plus there is no minimum order, and with your book on our system, it need never be ‘out of print’!
