Having moved to print on demand for much of our backlist and frontlist book titles; Emerald Publishing was looking for a reliable partner for our key U.S. market. We started working with Bookmasters in March 2017 and the experience has been a really successful one for us and it makes us wonder why we did not go down this route earlier! The entire team is professional and experienced and they are happy to share their knowledge and expertise to make our process more streamlined. The quality of workmanship is first class and they always work to schedule, even when we give them very little lead time! If you are looking for excellent, affordable quality then look no further than Bookmasters."

– Caroline Summers, Head of Book Sales, Emerald Publishing
