A big (Bright Red) birthday

In case you missed our news earlier this year, we have launched a Bright Red Publishing Blog!

We've been publishing a number of posts each month and our latest posts are both about our 10th birthday.

Interested in finding out how Bright Red started and how it became the company it is today?

Have a read of our post A big (Bright Red) birthday, which is written by John, one of our directors and co-founders. 

Our latest post is also birthday-themed and looks back at our 10th birthday celebration last month at the City Art Gallery.

Have a read of Celebrating Ten Bright Years.

We've sold our one millionth book!

Last month, we announced we were getting very close to selling our one millionth book.

We are so chuffed to have hit this incredible milestone at the end of August. We are a wee independent publisher, so to hit such a milestone in 10 years is a brilliant achievement for us. We want to say a special thank you to each and everyone of you who have supported us over the past decade, we could not have done this without you!

As a token of our gratitude, we gave away a hamper of goodies to the School who bought our one millionth book. 

Congratulations goes to Mr Gordon Urquhart, Principal Teacher of Modern Languages at Hermitage Academy, who bought our one millionth book - a Higher German Study Guide.

He said, “As a department, we are absolutely delighted to have won the hamper and are really pleased with the quality of the books we have bought from Bright Red as well as the access to the Digital Zone. We look forward to ordering more books from Bright Red in the future.”

Keep an eye on our Latest Offers and News page as we will be doing some more random acts of kindess between now and the end of the year!
