As a brand owner it is vitally important to be creative in your marketing; having a book is one such option. These maybe as small as a A6 20 page book with recipes in, to a full blown recipe or cocktail book. We can advise in pricing which maybe a lot lower than you think. For example, 500 copies of a 20 page A6 book starts from just £1000 including photography, design, publishing and printing. Up the quantity to 2000 and it is just £1950 so perfect for trade shows.
Publishing a cookbook can be a time consuming task. Before deciding if it is the right time for you personally, we advise considering what purpose the book will serve, who will buy it, and do you have time to invest into making the recipes consumer friendly? Costs can vary infinitely but we have provided a typical example below. If you plan to sell the book at £15 then just 1000 units sold will cover the costs. The extra copies (1000 in this case) will generate a profit of £15,000.
