About Medievalbookshop

banner cartoon Medievalbookshop is a one-man-band operating from sunny Watford in Hertfordshire. I offer a flexible and affordable graphic design and typesetting service, whether you're looking for an all‑in project-managed package or you just need to fill in with the bits you can't do yourself. All aspects of production are covered, from copy-editing, through design and page layout, to print-ready PDFs - and if you don't already have a printer I'll be happy to find one for you.

The name comes from a bookselling business which specialised in medieval subject matter. The graphics service was always run alongside to subsidise the bookselling. It gradually took on new skills and now, with over 20 years' experience in publishing & design to offer, it has become the main core of the business.

You can get in touch using the contact link at the top of this page. No obligation - you're welcome to call for a friendly chat, or you can simply email your requirements.

Affordable pricing
You can see the rate card here, but you're always welcome to ask! It always pays to shop around, so you can always ask here for a competitive quote, whether for a one-off job or an ongoing contract, whether you're an established company looking for some holiday or maternity cover, or a local author looking for help with publishing your first book - you name it!

Publishers & corporates
Have you considered outsourcing work that you currently do in-house? Medievalbookshop has several years' successful experience in this mode of working. You can make considerable savings on your current office, software and equipment expenditure, and significant reductions to overheads such as National Insurance, PAYE, and other direct employee costs. Take a quiet lunch break when no one's looking. Take a calculator with you.

I'm not proud, and I am always on the lookout for the next job, and I'd love to hear from you.

Books, Magazines, Catalogues,
Leaflets, Newsletters, Annual reports, Brochures, Ads & promotional material, you name it - not to mention the editorial services you love to hate, such as indexing and research - even the occasional bit of software training!

Canny buyers know that they get a better deal from someone who offers an all-in service. I'm pleased to provide this - anything that can't be done in-house can be commissioned from first class freelancers, and careful project management ensures that your jobs stay within budget and on time.

Medievalbookshop is a UK‑based service, so if you're within travelling distance of London, I'll be happy to visit your premises for a no‑obligation chat to discuss your requirements.
