The Espresso Book Machine

The Espresso Book Machine is a state-of- the -art printer which produces high quality paperbacks with full colour covers, trimmed to order in the time it takes to brew a coffee.

We are fortunate at Books At One to have the only machine of its kind in Ireland and the UK. Our print on demand service is a social enterprise and is managed by staff and volunteers on a not for profit basis.

We offer a flexible, one to one printing service. We have no minimum quantities and welcome small print runs which may be suitable for individuals or groups who wish to:

  • Print, self-publish and perhaps sell your own book
  • Create a paperback anthology for your writers’ group
  • Create copies of your book to distribute amongst editors, proof-readers, designers in advance of taking the traditional publishing route.
  • Transform your memoir, family history, or favourite recipies into paperback format for posterity.
  • Re-print your own copy of a much-loved classic or any public domain book (not subject to copyright)
