An Introduction to School Phonics book printing

Posted on 11 May 2023

Hey! Congratulations you have found the company you were looking for to print your new range of phonics books. At Ex Why Zed, we are specialists and will help you transform the idea from print ready pdf to that day when the children open the cover and enjoy reading their new story.

Detailed guide on phonics book design and production

Phonics books are a wonderful additional to school methodology and an awesome tool to help young learners develop their phonemic awareness.

Printing high-quality phonics books is crucial to ensure that learners have access to effective learning materials. As a result, schools and educational institutions must choose a reliable and experienced printing company to produce their phonics books.

At Ex Why Zed we will work with you to ensure the paper choices, binding type and size of the booklet are perfect for your project and intended readers. Ping us an email today if you would like us to send out a paper sample pack so you can look through the various finishes in person.

Phonics books should be fun and visually appealing. Kids won’t want to read boring books, and who can blame them? Our team of experienced professionals can advise on the idiosyncrasies you need to consider.

We also be able to offer a range of binding options for the phonics books. The binding must be durable and able to withstand regular use by learners and teachers. Our team are able to advise on the best binding options for the specific needs of the school. For up to 40 pages we suggest wire stitching / staple binding. The huge advantage of this for reading books is that without too much pressure, the pages will open completely flat. For 40 pages or more, then perfect binding with a glued spine becomes an option. This gives a book like aesthetic which you can retail for a higher cover price.


Customisation is where things get really exciting if you have a range of schools who are interested, each book can include their school logo, name, or other branding elements to the books. This will guarantee a smile on arrival and give the teachers and kids a sense of pride and ownership over their books. 

There are many facets to the phonics programme so we can print you a range of booklets all with the print spec built say 10, 20 or 30 different versions to encompass all the different sounds and words. Printing them all at the same time means we can get theme on press together vastly reducing the set-up costs and giving you a much lower price overall than if you were to print 30 booklets individually.

At Ex Why Zed we offer competitive pricing and timely delivery of the phonics books. Schools and educational institutions often have tight budgets and timelines, so we appreciate it is essential to provide cost-effective solutions and deliver the books on time.
