Imago takes the stress out of print and manufacture

The Imago Group is the premier international book and print production services company linking publishers and other commercial enterprises around the world with the best sources of supply for their books and other related products.

First established in the UK in 1980 with the purpose of offering production and consultancy services to a small number of publishers, today we have an international portfolio of over 300 clients, including many of the world’s leading publishing groups. The Imago Group now employs 120 people working from nine offices and operating on four continents.

Our key people all have previous experience gained by working for publishers or printers and are sympathetic to the issues and needs of our customers. We place great importance in ensuring our staff at every level receive regular and appropriate training to equip them to carry out their respective roles effectively.

Our Mission

Our mission is to use our wealth of experience to add value to the process of developing products and managing the production process. We provide our customers with the highest level of quality and support via our strong and professional network of sales offices in the UK, USA, Brazil, France, and Australia, with production offices in Hong Kong, China, Singapore, and India.

We are not a broker! Our teams work for you, not the printer

Our teams work for you, not the printer and we understand both the quality and ethical requirements of your job. We have our own QC (quality control) team who are available to fully inspect jobs and can also offer third-party inspections.

But most importantly of all, it is our team on the ground dealing with the suppliers every day, who make a real difference in communicating your needs to our suppliers.

A safe pair of hands

We are able to offer advice and help with safety testing and the latest safety regulations for your products. Our industry expert offers consultancy and training to our staff and to a number of our clients.  Our sales and production staff are up to speed on the latest safety requirements and will offer help and advice along the way to make sure your final product is a safe one.

A constant source of new ideas

On top of all this, we also like to stay a little ahead of the game and are constantly coming up with new ideas. If you want some inspiration on how to make your book a little bit different, or you have a prestigious deluxe edition that needs to meet the highest quality requirements, or you want a good idea for how to package your product, why not take a look at case studies?
