Publishing with Personality


Welcome to Matthew James Publishing Ltd

Matthew James Publishing Ltd is a small independent UK based publisher which has been around for over 20 years. Our motto ‘Publishing with Ideals’ guides our business practices in the titles we produce, the way we work with our authors and the way we deal with customers. We are a small family business that is constantly going from strength to strength with the help of the wonderful people we work with.

Over the last 20 years or so we have produced some fantastic resources for religious education in schools and at home, we have brought success to new authors and provided many opportunities to a wide array of individuals. We are very proud of the work we have done and the people we have been able to work with. In 2012 we found ourselves looking to new horizons, and now we are happy to be working with some wonderful children’s authors, producing beautiful poetry books and expanding our design services.

If you want to know about us, as a business and as individuals, why not follow us on one of our many social networks like Facebook and Twitter, or just Contact Us.

REjoice Publications

REjoice has been our imprint for Catholic and Christian educational material for many years. REjoice has seen the birth of God’s Story and Church’s Story 1, 2 and 3, as well as many other titles that are now staples within primary and secondary schools.

The hugely popular Come & See and People of God RE programmes were also published through REjoice and have seen much success. We feel vey lucky to have been able to work with such talented individuals and groups to produce so many excellent resources that are helping educators all over deliver outstanding material to their pupils.

REjoice also works with many theologians and spiritual leaders to produce excellent higher learning material, as well as prayerbooks, guides and support material.

REjoice does not just focus on Christianity and Catholicism, we publish educational material centred around any religion or faith which we feel will help develop understanding and community.

Tiny Tree

Tiny Tree is our new imprint for Children’s literature and picture books. In it’s very early stages, we want the opportunity to produce more titles like More than a Me, The Field Feud and The Mechanics of Mechanicsville under an imprint dedicated to the genre. This way we can focus our production and marketing at the most appropriate audiences and ensure that our little family of authors have a suitable home.

Typesetting and Design

Over the last 20 years we have worked on many different projects and have gained the experience and contacts to provide our own excellent Typesetting and Design services. We have access to proof-readers and illustrators, as well as some very talented typesetters and designers. We also have a wide array of contacts in the printing industry, allowing us to get excellent prices on all sorts of projects.

Our services include typesetting and design of your manuscript, cover design, production of a print ready PDF file and, we can provide you with competitive printing prices for a wide range of sizes and print runs. We are also able to provide eBook creation and distribution through our 3rd Party suppliers.

It doesn’t have to be a book you are interested in getting designed professionally, we can provide you a quote on any typesetting and design work from wedding invitations to marketing leaflets and catalogues.
