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 only one modification: to maximise legibility we reduce extra-wide margins leaving a minimum of about 10mm. If the original is skewed, offcentre, dirty, faint, incomplete or covered with the previous owner's fingering it stays that way. Before ordering you must examine pages throughout the work to ensure it is all usable. Parts are stapled. If the Petrucci file included a cover it will be printed. Bulky piano parts will consist of separate folded fascicles, of 24 pages or less, in a separate cover. Scores will be comb bound with a 160gsm cover and will be A4 size (210 x 297 mm).
Copyright laws are messy and anomalous and particularly onerous for us in the European Union, but they 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”. Note that the chamber works which form the Merton Music Project is now owned and distributed, often in an improved version, by Ourtext and these works should be orderedby following the link from the work page.
Music will be posted from Manchester 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.
