Books and Manuals

You’ve finally got the words on the page, now let us bring your document to life!

Our experienced team can provide you with the highest-quality self-publishing solutions for your budget and your time frame.

We treat every job with the same attention to detail. Whether you are printing just one copy or thousands of copies, we can help with all aspects of self-publishing.


The advantage of self-publishing is that you retain control over every aspect of your book. You retain the copyright and you can decide when, where and how many copies you publish at any one time.  The disadvantage of self-publishing is that it can be confusing and overwhelming. With over 20 years’ experience we can successfully and seamlessly guide you through all aspects of the publishing process.

Your book will be printed using the latest digital technology, and you will be supplied with a hi-resolution mock-up book prior to publication, allowing you to fully visualise the finished product before we go to print. We will be guided by you and work closely with you, whether you simply want to print a book from your digital files, or you are looking for full design, layout, publishing and distribution services.

We can help you with:

  • Book Cover Design
  • Correct binding for your job
  • Choosing book sizes, paper stocks, and finishing options
  • Advice on print run sizes and reprinting options
  • Colour and mono (black) printing
  • Design layout
  • ISBN and barcode
  •  Secure storage of your files
  • Warehousing and distribution
  • Customisation
  • Layout and set up of multiple page documents e.g. annual reports, archive books, year books

Reducing Self-Publishing Costs

Self-publishing can be an incredibly rewarding experience, but it can also be and risky and expensive endeavour. We can help you minimize this financial risk in several ways.

The flexibility of digital printing means that you can start with a small initial print run. This requires a lower financial outlay at the start and allows you to also save on storage costs.

You can then can quickly reprint as demand requires. It’s as easy as picking up the phone. We also help you minimise risk by helping you get your book right the first time. Crucial decisions, such as cover image and design will have a huge impact on the sales of your book. Our team of experienced designers will give your book the professional edge it deserves.

We also print and customise manuals and course notes

When you are looking for professional, high quality manuals or course notes, we can design, print, personalise and post these for you.

Your training materials can include your company name, logo and colours to increase your visibility.

We can print either your logo, your client’s logo, or both. We can even print individual names on the manuals. We can insert individual notes for different groups of students or even post different course materials to students at different stages throughout your course. Presentation options include black & white or colour printing, wire-bound manuals, folders with tabs and stapled booklets.

I printed my first photography book at Docmaster. I was after a recycled edgy look for my black and white work and I’m very happy with the outcome. It was a super quick turnaround with great guidance through the whole process - from paper selection, to proofs, to layout, to stitching of the book. I'm definitely coming back!
