Why choose Barbossa Book Printing Sydney?
We're the Book Design and Print Professionals
The main reason to chose Barboosa for your book designing is our professional design experience. Here at Barbossa we have an assortment of Graphic Designers, Illustrators and Type-setters from a range of different publication styles so we can allocate the best style design to your job.
Quality Book Design
While it is your content that matters, the success of the book will somewhat be dependant on the quality of it’s design. Books need to be designed to be easily read, they must be easy on the eye and their cover is their call to action..
Your books first appearance, it’s “read me” factor does count
We don’t charge per hour and we don’t charge for additional changes.
We asked customers before we design their books, why they chose Barbossa. Their response is price driven. It’s because we don’t charge per the hour or for additional alterations. We estimate the job at the beginning, and we stand by that price.
While other designers might start with low cost and then charge a premium rate per hour over that, the price we quote is the price you’ll pay.
How can we afford to do that? We want to know how they can’t. We do enough volume in work that we always have a team of designers working from 9 to 5, and because our team are always at their computers, text edits don’t take but a few minutes anyway.
We Just Offer More
From manuscript editing to finding the right images, we know that a successful book print is more than just text pages and a cover; and we can help you throughout the process.
Prepress and file archive
In addition to our book design prepress which prepares your file for the printing process, we’ll also archive your working file and press-ready file for later book reprinting.
We plan on designing your book so well that it sells-out and you need to print more, and with that in mind, we’ll never delete your book design. You might ask why we would keep your working files, and the short answer is, because you might want to change the second print run.
Concept and font proof
The last thing we want to do is design a complete book only to hear that it's not what you imagined. It's for that reason that we'll send you electronic proofs of cover art and font concept before we start typesetting the entire book. This concept art might be as simple as the books outside cover spread and the first 10 pages, but your approval at this step point is also critical to our processes.

Print on demad with our print panel
There’s no need to panic over finding the right printer. We can do that for you. There are many types of commercial and trade printers out there, and they don’t all do the same thing in the same quantity; so sourcing your own commercial printer in Sydney might leave you with a printer who will charge you double the price.
We deal with book printing companies everyday, and understand which printers can do what jobs. Leave it with us and we will source for you the appropriate quotes and let you make a decision on who you would like to use.
FLIP IT STYLE E-BOOKS
We also have the ability to produce flip-it style e-books, but as much as this is a great feature, we encourage using this as a way of showing prospective clients a sample of the pages with in your book, not selling the e book itself.
If you plan to sell your book on your own website and think a flip-it book might add value, then please do let us know. Flip-it e-books are mostly used to show graphics and illustrations inside reference book but cab be used to publish entire books online.
