Welcome . . .


Established in 1981, Short Run Press is widely recognised as one of the UK’s leading book printers and binders. Owned by the Gliddon and Couch families, we have built a reputation for quality printing and binding and for excellence in service.


Our customers include global publishers, learned societies, small presses and numerous individual authors. Commitment to investment keeps us at the forefront of technology. We have highly trained staff, take great pride in our craft and guarantee a very competitively priced product.


In 2008 Andy Gliddon and Murray Couch, two of the founding directors, sold their controlling interest to the three sons Rob, Mark and Matthew who continue the development of the business.


Whether it’s 50 or 15,000 copies of a book we can produce your book competitively, quickly and maintain communication with you throughout the process.

Full in house typesetting & book design service coupled with the latest Agfa Prepress workflows mean we can manage virtually any book project.
