Users can order printed scores made from an IMSLP file from the Petrucci-Merton Booklet Service, located in the UK. Petrucci-Merton Booklet Service (PMBS) is offering to make booklets ready for the music stand on 100gsm A3 (297 x 420 mm) paper of any eligible music in the Petrucci Library. Please note that PMBS is an independent entity founded by Theo Wyatt, now run by Jem Bradley, and is not a subsidiary or division of Project Petrucci, LLC.
We reproduce exactly what is on the Petrucci site with the following modifications: to maximise legibility we reduce extra-wide margins leaving a minimum of about 10mm. Original files that are skewed and off centre can be de-skewed and re-centred. Files can also be cleaned to an extent, and a file that is faint or incomplete can be repaired, again to an extent. Before ordering you must examine pages throughout the work to ensure it is all usable. Parts are bound (stapled). If the Petrucci file included a cover it can be printed as well if you wish. A4 size scores are comb bound with a 160gsm cover, whilst A3 scores are wire bound.
Copyright laws do have to be observed. We must therefore ask you not to order copies of works described on the work page as “Non-PD EU”.
Music will be posted from the UK at Printed Paper rate. To destinations outside Europe the Post Office can send it by sea, but in our experience it almost invariably goes by air. PMBS aims to post it within three days of receipt of an order, but if there is likely to be a longer delay the invoice will warn you.
IMSLP does not control any part of the publishing process, and therefore all questions should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
