A print shop is a place where you can have books printed.


There are two places you can get books printed: the publishing house in Ankh-Morpork (located in Pseudopolis Yard in the Isle of Gods), and the printery in Bes Pelargic (located on Diamond Place south of Market Street).

The prices for both locations are the same (just in different currencies), and they take the same amount of time. However, the Bes Pelargic printery only prints in Agatean. The Ankh-Morpork Publishing House prints in Morporkian by default, but can also translate books to Ephebian, Djelian, Uberwaldean, or Agatean.


Typing "print book" will show you how much printing a certain number of copies of your book will cost, and how long you'll have to wait.

The cost for the different numbers of the open pale pink book in Morporkian is:
  1 for A$11.20 and will be ready at 2:15am, Sunday 9th June Secundus, UC 2028.
  5 for A$56 and will be ready at 6:42am, Sunday 9th June Secundus, UC 2028.
 10 for A$112 and will be ready at 12:15pm, Sunday 9th June Secundus, UC 2028.
 20 for A$224 and will be ready at 11:22pm, Sunday 9th June Secundus, UC 2028.
You can translate a book to or from ephebian, djelian, uberwaldean, agatean and morporkian, the cost of doing the translation is defined in the following table.  Translating between two of these languages is also possible, but it will cost the amount to translate from the language to morporkian and back again.
   130% ephebian   130% djelian   130% uberwaldean   130% agatean
Use: print <number> of <book>

You'll need to have the money on hand when you order the copies.

Your original book will remain in your inventory.
