Valid Press offers to print your book in very small runs and is price-competitive up to 1000 copies. Once the manuscript has been formatted by you on MS Word to our specs the usual cost is about $200.00 pre-print set up.

We will send you the final proof for your final approval. It will then cost you $4-6 per copy per book to print it.

Up to 10 black and white pix are included in this, but as they consume more ink the price will rise for extra. Colour prints can be inserted at an extra price, or you could supply them at no extra charge for insertion of up to 10.

The printed pages are then taken to a professional bindery where each book will cost between $2-$3 to bind, depending on the size of the run. The cover (your design) will cost $300-$600, depending on colour, gloss and paper weight. All prices exclusive of Freight.

These prices are given for an average novel of about 85,000 words printed on 9pt Times Roman (or whatever face you choose), which will give you a book of approx 300 pp. Firm pricing will be given before print commences. Editorial advice and design suggestions will be given at this stage.
