Self Publishing on ABC's Espresso Book Machine
USB service operating hours
It is possible to have your "self published" books printed (if brought on USB sticks) from Sunday to Friday until 15h00, depending on our specialized operators being available. A quick "upload and print" depends on the files being as described in the guidelines
If you want to be sure, please call
ahead and make an appointment with them or email via email@example.com (Amsterdam)
or firstname.lastname@example.org (The Hague)
The EBM only accepts Portable Document Files (.pdf)
- this is in order to maintain the fonts, margins and internal formatting of your document. The PDF is a stable file format that ensures your book will look exactly as it does when you format it on your home computer. If the files are formatted correctly, the turnaround time from file submission to the finished product can be very fast.
You will have to provide us with 2 PDF files that are finalized and ready to be uploaded and printed. One for the interior "Book Block" and one for the entire Cover. The EBM does not print A4 sized books.
