In 2020, over 200 million printed books were sold in the UK, the most amount of books in a 12-month period since 2012 (see The Rise and Rise of Print Books), a trend not only seen in the UK, but across the globe as we adjusted to life with numerous lockdowns, constant bad news and a lifestyle far from the normal. With this in mind, it’s not hard to see why print books have been back in demand, as many of us have been seeking that moment of escape that books are able to provide - not only this, but reading is also proven to have many mental health benefits, helping to reduce stress and anxiety.
At Ashley House, we understand the importance of print and reading, and that’s why books really are some of our favourite projects to handle as a creative printing company. We get to work with, and discover, some brilliantly talented authors and publishers, helping to turn their ideas into beautifully finished printed books - from cookbooks to beautifully illustrated storybooks and everything in between.
With fantastic colour reproduction, we’re able to print stunningly eye-catching illustrations and images within your book, creating a real page turner and the highest quality book for your money - creating happy authors and happy readers - that’s why many self-publishing authors trust us to produce their books.
As everything we print is totally bespoke and environmentally-friendly, resulting in beautiful books inside and out, without having a negative impact on the environment in the process. We combine the use of state-of-the-art technology alongside an impressive range of techniques, stocks and binding options, including layflat binding and case binding, that’s why we’re the go-to printer for your book printing needs!
If you’re ready to take the leap and print your own book, take a look at our book printing portfolio to see some of our recent work and get in touch today to find out how we can work together to create a real page-turner!
