Long Run Hardback Book
& Journal Printing

At SS Media, we’ve built a reputation on offering hardback book printing services while at the same time avoiding one-size-fits-all product production. We understand that the key to any successful book or journal lies in its uniqueness, therefore we promise each and every one of our clients the unique and bespoke service package they deserve.

Journal Printing

Above and beyond so many other book types, a journal must be of the utmost professionalism to be taken seriously. Whether to be used for academic purposes, to promote a business or simply to inform members of the public on health matters, journal printing of the highest calibre is absolutely essential. To read an academic or educational text that is poorly presented is to disregard its content from beginning to end – something we fully understand and acknowledge here at SS Media.

We have established a long term relationship with print suppliers from the UK, Europe and the Far East that use the latest technology alongside traditional book binding processes in order to ensure a quality product.

Long Run Hardback Books

Our unique relationships with multiple print suppliers coupled with our comprehensive range of formats and options means that you can relax while we focus on superior standard hardback book manufacturing. SS Media has been in the custom book printing business for long enough to gain a solid understanding of what it takes to make a hardback book a success.

We’re fully dedicated to taking your interior and exterior vision for your book and bringing it to life with no detail overlooked. We offer extensive consultancy services and can advise on every step of the process following your instructions and guarantee flawless output from beginning to end.

Our state of the art binding techniques ensure not only a stunningly professional look, but also the kind of quality that’s fast becoming a rarity. To print a book with SS Media is to print a book that’s built to last – we believe that true quality speaks volumes for the content of the book…any book.

Our Promises to You

Whether you’re looking for printing and finishing services for a single run of journals or perhaps hardback book printing for the long-term future, SS Media promises to deliver. Not only do we guarantee an exceptional aesthetic coupled with unrivalled quality, but we also promise to bring all of this to each and every one of our customers for a very competitive price.

With our meticulous attention to detail, you can rest assured that the same flawless results will be evident in each and every book, whether you order 100 copies or 100,000.

We have found the service provided by S S Media friendly and efficient, but above all reliable - and when things go wrong, as inevitably happens occasionally, they are put right without lame excuses.

- Anthony Werner, Shepheard-Walwyn Publishers

I have worked with S S Media for more than 5 years on a wide range of short-run and long-run paperback and hardback book projects. In terms of advice and support they have always offered far more than a print service alone, with considerable professional support also provided when I set up my own publishing house a few years ago.
