Celebrating Ten Bright Years

2018 marks our tenth year of Bright Red Publishing and we are so thrilled to be recognised as a company that produces high quality, effective Study Guides with Scottish students and teachers at the heart of everything we do. The last ten years have been challenging amidst many qualifications changes but also incredibly rewarding and we are delighted to have sold our one millionth book this year! Of course, none of this would be possible without our loyal authors and suppliers, as well as the incredible support of parents, teachers and students. Although the Bright Red team itself is made up of six people, we have a network of people who help us get our books to press and out into the world – from our wonderful authors, to printers, typesetters, reviewers, booksellers and so on.
