How it works

Just follow the four easy steps...

Step One

Select your project - Cook Book, Poetry Book or Short Story Book, decide on the amount of pages and print option.

Step Two

Now it’s over to the children to come up with some amazing recipes, poems and stories. These need to be collated, typed up (if not already) and sent to us in either a Word, Text or PDF document. If the children have drawn any pictures, please post originals to us for scanning - don’t worry about layout, we will take care of this for you.

Step Three

We will carefully lay the book out and provide a final proof for you to check and sign off, at this point a final order quantity is agreed.

Step Four

The books are then printed, finished and delivered, ready for you to sell. A final invoice will then be provided.
