Contract Publishing

Over the last twenty years producing our own books, Argyll Publishing has operated also as a contract publisher, doing publications for other organisations on a contract basis. These have covered a broad range of books and documents including trade directories, training booklets and company books.


We provide services at every stage of the book making process – writing, editing, design and layout, proofing, production management, and sales and distribution. Some customers have their book written but need a production manager. Others need an editor but can handle all their own distribution or want their book for private use only. Argyll Publishing can meet all of these needs in the one customised package. You end up with the publication you want with all the pitfalls and problems dealt with by us and our network of skilled experts.
