One of the most common questions we are asked, is what font should be used in a book, "Sans serif" or "serif".
There are two primary styles of type: "sans serif" and " serif". "Serifs" are the tiny tails on the text. Most books use a 11 to 12 pt serif font for the body copy and a bold sans serif fonts for chapter titles and headers. Depending on the age of your target audience the larger type could be more suitable.
Whilst there is no set standard, there are some fonts which have stood the test of time. In the following paragraphs we have included samples of a number of fonts which are widely used and are popular with professional book designers.
This was our first time self-publishing - a technical book for university students. The process was really quite straightforward - although it did take me a couple of attempts before I got things right. Sue was very helpful, gave good advice and was patient with a few changes that were made. The... Read More

Thank you to The Book Printing Company for doing such an awesome job with our little journals. Couldn't be happier with the result. Service was great, so helpful and patient with us first time publishers!
Looking forward to the next books.
Writing my (first) book felt weird. Then the time came for the book to leave my laptop and venture into the real world - and weird clothed itself in nervous questions. When I contacted the Book Printing Company I immediately felt more at ease. Their mastery of the book printing business eased my... Read More
Simply fantastic! What a refreshing change it was to deal with an honest and helpful company. I started out wanting to print 2000 books on the advice of another publishing entity, and the staff at the Book Printing Company talked me down to 100. Thank God they did. I have a few typos and facts to... Read More
I am so pleased with your service! The staff were very helpful and the books look so professional. I will be using your services again and again.
I don’t know where to begin. From the first phone call to the delivery of my books, your service and quality has been outstanding. Cant wait to use your company again.
My recent experience with the Book Printing Company was positive. Sue was patient and professional. Not only in arranging the printing of my memoir but also during the layout and design process. I'm very satisfied with the end result, Thanks
I just received my shipment of my books. They are perfect. This is my first book as an author, the process couldn’t have been easier. I will highly recommend you to anyone who is considering printing or publishing their book.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Book Printing Company!!! I ordered 100 perfect bound books and received 10 free, which was great. I have recommended The Book Printing Company to my friends and associates. Self-publishing has been easy thanks to these ladies. The books look great!... Read More
A lesson learnt. You very much get what you pay for. You printed my first book order, and they were perfect. I recently placed a second order through another book printing company on the advice of my publishing company. What a disappointment. I cried when I received them. Such poor quality compared...

Absolutely the best service! Went way way way above and beyond my expectations and delivered an amazing product. Can't think you enough for keeping this memory alive!!!
Wow, the quality of the books you did for us were amazing. We have used a number of book printing companies both in Australia and overseas, and I must say, they dont even come close to the quality of your work. I will only be using your company from now on.
This is to recommend The Book Printing Company and Donna for excellent service “above and beyond the call of duty”. We wanted to get a book written by my Mum printed in a hurry. It was a small batch (50 copies) and the assistance we received from Donna was exceptional including delivery of... Read More

And the books look great...the photographs have reproduced perfectly. You’ve done a fantastic job! We’ve... Read More

My books have just arrived and I want to thank you for the amazing quality of the books. They exceeded my expectations. Wonderful Service
We have had two books printed by you, one with single colour inside, and the other with full colour. We were delighted with the print quality, the ease of placing the order and the speed of delivery. We are very happy with the service.
Great job by Donna! Thanks
It was my first experience of book publishing. I found the site gave me a good guide to the process and also the personal contacts regarding my queries with Donna helped considerably.
I was very pleased with the printing result, as was my family when receiving their copy of our family history. I... Read More
I needed a run of 100 books printed for me at fairly short notice. The book printing Co. were able to do it at an unbeatable price and produced a terrific quality product. Will use them again.
I cannot express how superb your service was. I was in an extreme bind due to another printer failing to deliver quality goods at the last minute before an event. I was very stressed and Donna went above and beyond to help me get reprints done in an impressively quick turn around even delivering... Read More

Thank you for a great job. I will certainly be using your company... Read More
