Publishing Services

Whether you are a company seeking a book to mark an anniversary, or an individual who wants a handful of copies of you book to give to family, we can help you make it a reality!

Under the name April Sky Design, we provide a range of professional publishing services to outside bodies, which include but are not limited to:

  • project management
  • typing, editing, proofreading, indexing
  • cover and inside page design
  • image scanning and Photoshopping
  • typesetting and correction
  • legal deposits
  • arranging the printing of the book

We will guide you through the process from first manuescript to finished books, which you can then give away or sell, whatever you wish. You retain all the copyright and are the “publisher” of the book.

For more information about the process visit the April Sky Design web site.

The team at Blackstaff has extensive experience of working on all kinds of books, including heavily illustrated coffee table hardbacks as well as more text-based histories.

We have worked with a number of organisations and companies, including Northern Ireland Environment Agency, Belfast City Council, Fermanagh and Omagh district Council, The Ulster Architectural Heritage Society, Belfast Solicitors’ Association, Queen’s University Belfast, Manufacturing Northern Ireland and many more, including hundreds of private individuals.

We have a flexible approach to each individual project, and we’d be delighted to talk to you about your ideas or answer any questions you may have.

If you thought this route might be right for your work we would be happy to discuss. Please contact Wesley Johnston via for further details.
