How Do I Place My Order?

You can order standard book types  directly through this site. Add the yard to your basket and for multiple yards of books increase the quantity. Quantity 5 = 5 yards of books. These books may be a mixture of bindings and sizes depending on which product you choose.

If you have something specific in mind you can arrange a custom order. The best way to reach us is by email. After receiving your email we can consider your requirements and get back to you as soon as possible. We endeavour to respond to all emails within 24 hours. You can use the following pointers to decide what information to include in your email to us:

1. How many books do you require?
2. What kind of books are you looking for?
3. Do you have a budget?
4. When do you need the books by?

Once we have this information from you, you can sit back and relax while we put together a quote!
