Customer reviews

Avon DataSet have done a variety of jobs for CoramBAAF, previously BAAF, over a number of years. This has included the typesetting and art work preparation for our acclaimed quarterly journal, Adoption & Fostering and a number of books.  I have found the work to be very accurate, delivered on time if not before, and of high quality. Andy and Mel are a pleasure to work with, besides being highly skilled, and always helpful and understand and respond to the pressure of deadlines! They have been able to turn jobs around in record time, put in the extra hours to finish a job to deadline, and have very much been a part of our “team”.
Avon DataSet is a trustworthy and reliable company and I would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for a quality typesetting service – they will not disappoint.

Granta Books works regularly with Avon DataSet on typesetting projects. They are everything you could want in a supplier – efficient and thorough, very accommodating and generous with their time and support whilst displaying patience and a good sense of humour at all times! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. They are a joy to work with.

I simply cannot recommend Avon DataSet enough. First Story is a charity that places Writers-in-Residence into schools and publishes anthologies of creative writing by young people; every school we work with receives a published anthology and Avon DataSet have typeset our anthologies for the last ten years. As we’re working to academic term dates, our publishing cycle is far tighter than usual yet Mel and Andy make the process effortless for us. They somehow occupy that mythical space in producing incredibly high-quality work, at speed, to incredibly reasonable rates! Plus, they’re an absolute pleasure to work with – always ready to answer questions we have and willing to figure out all our quirky typesetting requests. Avon DataSet are an incredibly reliable and professional company who provide an outstanding service. As I said before, I can’t recommend them enough.

Mel and Andy at Avon Dataset have been so brilliant to work with – they are hugely flexible and responsive, they turn things round unbelievably quickly (it is almost superhuman!) and the quality of the work they produce is second to none. Our ‘Change the Word’ poetry anthology of work by refugees and local people, featuring illustrations from Iranian artist Majid Adin, has been typeset beautifully, with a huge amount of care and sensitivity to the words and the images. The Change the Word group were thrilled with the book and are all clearly immensely proud to be published authors. Thank you Avon Dataset!

I’ve employed Andy at Avon DataSet numerous times over the years for typesetting projects, on a range of books. He’s highly skilled at the work, gets projects done very quickly and is well organised, prompt and courteous in his dealings with us. I’d highly recommend Avon Dataset for typesetting of all kinds.
