Publishing with Ideals

What We Do

Publishing with Ideals

Every author, client or customer we have is a part of our family. As a small family business that has been running for over 20 years we feel very passionately about how we work and who we work with. Our customers, clients and authors come first and we will always do everything we can to ensure that everyone feels like part of the family.

Typesetting and Design

We have been in the publishing business for many years and have a wealth of experience in designing and formatting a wide variety of work. Our prices are very reasonable, so if you just want us to take on a design job just contact us with your details and we will get back to you. We also have a number of designers and illustrators we can contact for specific work.


Come and shop with us. There’s no need to set up an account to purchase from us but we do have the option. We never ask for any bank details as we use PayPal and Stripe to take payment. As we do a lot of business with schools and trade we also have an option to pay via Invoice and BACs if approved.


We are always looking for new pieces of work to sink our teeth in to, and we are constantly expanding our range of titles. If you have a book or resource idea you would like to submit then take a look at our Submissions and Permissions section.
