Quality Book Printing

While it is your book's content that matters, the success of your book will somewhat be dependant on the quality of its design and print. Books are designed to focus your attention on their content, the book's message, and that can sometimes mean not noticing the book and being lost in the words. The value of a books design and the quality of its print can completely subtract from a book's content. Professionally book design and quality book printing is very important to a books content, readability and saleability, and so while Barbossa Book Printing is very cost effective, we encourage you to make your decision based on more than just price. Ask us to show you some design examples today.





So what does book printing cost?

Here at Barbossa Book Printing, we think it would be unfair to force your book printing needs into one of the cookie-cutter formats that all online book printing companies use. Instead, if you're after a price, we offer you a choice. Here at Goliath Book Printing we have three (3) ways of quoting any book printing job. If your book design is a standard size and full colour, you can use our Online book printing quote tool here. It's fast, it's comprehensive and it's very affordable. If your book isn't exactly "standard" or if you're unsure about what might be needed in your book printing quote, you can use our custom book printing Guided Request A Quote form here. If you complete our Guided Request a Quote form, we'll be in touch with you to talk about your book pinning needs. The third and final way to request a book printing quote from us here at Goliath is to simply email your request through from our contact page.



We asked our customers what was important to them when it came to affordable book printing quotes, and they told us that the idea of paying for additional design changes was a genuine concern and a reason to not use a professionally type-setting service and /or a book printing company. We have based our No Additional Charges policy based on what our customers want. We can understand that customers want to know what they are going to be charged upfront and we thought that request was reasonable. So how can we do that? Before we quote a customer's book design and print, we ask to see their manuscript. With a manuscript, we can accurately estimate a book page count and that will tell us how many book pages we are quoting to design. You might ask "What about any text alterations?" To say thank you for printing with Barbossa Book Printing, we'll do those alterations for free.



Telling your family story through a Family History, Heirloom book is a special thing, and not just special for you, but special after you. Family History books and Life Heirloom books are mostly written by the first-person or a family member, to preserve the memory of a life and loved one. They are more often short run, softcover books, and distributed amongst the family. What would be more special than full colour, illustrated, photo book telling the whole story of a persons life to their kids and maybe grandkids after they're gone? A book speaking to someone's unborn or un-grown children telling them the words that they wish they could tell them in person. If you or a family member have a story that you're thinking about preserving in the pages of a book, then please give us a call. We would love the opportunity to be involved in your Family book printing job and would like to talk you through how it can happen.

single book printing australia

A very common question in the self-publishing book printing space, asked of any Book Printer, is "Can you print one-off, single books? While the answer is yes, book printing becomes more cost-effective per unit at higher numbers. For example, while one book might cost $120, two books might cost $180, and Ten books might only cost $240. In this way, while books can be produced as single one-off books, if the price is a factor, and you're looking for cheap book printing Australia, then please consider asking for a variation on your single book print quote to also include a quantity options of five or ten books
