Pardon the pun, but I was very impressed by Impressum. They helped me publish my most recent book Golden Girl. Despite it being a highly inauspicious time to be bringing out a new book, due to chronic ill health, family issues, Covid-19 and lockdown, I was surprised that we actually met our goals. The goal posts shifted and my tech skills are limited, so I was delighted that I was not further stressed out by the process of publication. It all went slowly but surely and one step after another the book was launched with minimum inconvenience, yet is being well received. The lovely people at Impressum displayed patience with my limitations, professionalism and a very personal touch. This all translated into a beautiful well set out book, with a perfect cover design and one very happy author. I highly recommend them.
Helping you get published!
Publishing in Newcastle, Australia. Here at Impressum we guide you through the world of self-publishing so that you can imprint and impress! We help you at each stage of the publishing process from proofreading to typesetting to promotion. We are a herd of word-nerds who will nurture your book-baby and then release it into the wild.
Impressum is the brand-new indie imprint from Brugel Creative. We created Impressum because, as a chapter of writers, authors, poets, illustrators, editors and publishers ourselves, we wanted to help authors have the best chance at self-publishing their book.
With over a decade of experience in the industry, we at Impressum recognise that your book – whether you’re an academic author, a fabricator of fiction, or a food blogger with a hunger to serve up something more – might not fit the strictures of traditional publishing, but you want more than being left struggling to self-publish on your own. If you want a publisher who will guide you through your book’s life cycle from conception to consumption, and who will allow you as the author to manage all the rights and proceeds of your book, then read on! Write on! Right on!
Impressum will help you with all stages of the publishing process, and you can choose which parts – editing and proofreading, cover design and typesetting, printing, distribution, and marketing, or your very own author website. The best thing is that we tailor your publishing package to you. Just submit your manuscript and tell us what you need.

Impressum redesigned the interior of my journal to give it a fresh, attractive and professional image. On an ongoing basis, they continue to meet my typesetting needs to keep this high standard, often going above and beyond as we work together to meet deadlines.

It has been such a pleasure to work with the wonderful team at Impressum in preparing my latest novel for publication. At all times, they have liaised with me in a warm yet professional manner and have replied promptly and courteously whenever I have had further questions. I am very happy to commend them to anyone seeking their services for book layout and cover design.
