“As someone with a substantial background in educational publishing, and with an obsessive approach to the printing of our family’s history, I was more than delighted with the full range of services that Eric Berry provided. Eric had been recommended to me by a cousin, a fellow historian and publisher, who from personal experience spoke very highly of Minipublishing’s work, and at all stages Eric’s professionalism exceeded my high expectations.

Prior to my accepting a quotation, Eric listened most attentively to my ideas on layout and printing and made very helpful suggestions based upon his obvious extensive experience in a wide range of printing contexts and roles. He also went to considerable trouble in providing a number of very competitively priced cost options for our family committee’s consideration.

Once a quote was accepted, Eric maintained at every stage the highly professional and friendly approach I had discerned in our early discussions. Among other things, he: quickly drew my attention to things that I had missed and suggested solutions; ensured with artistic insight that the layout of the very extensive text and illustrations conformed to agreed guidelines; achieved the very best possible reproduction of all photographs, including many very old ones; quietly and efficiently sorted out the inevitable computer problems arising from author produced discs; informed me regularly of the progress of all work; promptly followed up any changes I required; and honoured in an atypical way all his contractual obligations.Eric actually went well beyond the requirements of the contract for the layout and printing of the Bolte Family history. I will always remember with gratitude the various ways in which he helped me realise my dream of getting this mammoth volume printed, a book that was over 25 years in the making. His professionalism was such that he quickly absorbed my interest in and enthusiasm for the subject matter and took a real personal interest in the whole project. He was, too, as fastidious as I was obsessive in the interests of producing as fine a volume as was humanly possible. The whole Bolte Family is absolutely delighted with the result.”
