Elliott & Thompson - Custom Publishing

Custom Publishing

We have a wealth of experience working with organisations and individuals to produce outstanding custom books – whether to mark an anniversary or a special occasion in a company’s history, or give a unique insight into an institution's achievements. It may be that the goal is to create a stunning book for clients, shareholders, alumni or members. Our expertise is to achieve these aims through the production of a high-quality book that will stand the test of time, whether it is a large, lavishly illustrated ‘coffee-table’ hardback or a neat paperback.

Client relationships are of huge importance to us, and the Elliott & Thompson team, collectively, has considerable experience of serving clients from a wide range of industry sectors. Our focus on client service, together with our extensive industry knowledge, enable us to make the publishing process as straightforward, effective and enjoyable as possible.

‘Throughout the whole process, Elliott & Thompson were patient and helpful...a very personal service.’
– Warden, Glenalmond College

Our services

We offer a comprehensive range of publishing services tailored to each project. We provide:

  • a complete editorial process, including structural editing, copy-editing, proofreading and indexing
  • authors with experience in a wide variety of subjects
  • photographers and/or illustrators
  • advice on choosing the best format for the book
  • design and layout services
  • jacket design
  • promotional and marketing strategy
  • production and print.

Using the same first-class editors and designers as on our ‘trade’ titles, we will ensure that the intended audience will find their book an interesting, informative and enjoyable read as well as a well-designed, desirable ‘object’.

Our books are produced to the highest standards by leading printers in the UK, Europe and the Far East, through the same rigorous design and production procedures as books sold by major retailers, and of course can be customised to a greater degree than those produced for the trade.

We work with Macmillan Distribution Ltd., one of the UK’s leading book distributors, and can advise on storage solutions for your stock if space is limited. We can also make the book available through Amazon and other retailers. Additionally, we can suggest fulfilment options for sending copies out to UK and international addresses.

We are delighted to respond to enquiries about our custom publishing services. For more detailed information and advice, please contact us.
