PrintingPress allows everyone on your server to duplicate the books they've written. It has built in protection against people cloning books that don't belong to them too, as well as compatibility with ChestShop!

Methods to copy Books

There are lots of ways to duplicate books: You can use one of the two recipes:

  • Written Book + Book and Quill
  • Written Book + Book + Ink Sack + Feather


If you have the pp.usecommand permission, you can simply use the /copybook command. The syntax is: /copybook <times to copy> The command takes the required materials from your inventory (Does not use Book and Quills)


With a ChestShop shop (ChestShop is not required for the other features) for Written Books you can put in one Written Book as well as any quantity of Book and Quills, Books, Ink Sacks and Feathers. The shop will now clone your book whenever anyone tries to buy one! This functionality is disable-able in the config.

Additional Features: With the pp.cloneall permission, users can clone any books (Defaults to op) With the pp.changeauthor permission, users can change a book's author (Defaults to op) And, if they have the pp.authcol permission, they can add colour to the author names using &s!


  • pp.usecommand:
    • description: Allows use of the /copybook command.
    • default: true
  • pp.cloneall:
    • description: Allows cloning of other player's books.
    • default: op
  • pp.changeauthor:
    • description: Allows modification of the author of a book.
    • default: op
  • pp.authcol:
    • description: Allows modification of the author of a book with colour.
    • default: op


There is only one option:

ChestShopInterface. It is a boolean and specifies if the chest shop connection is enabled or not.

    This plugin worked just fine on my server! Thank you for creating it. <3 Is there any chance it is being updated to 1.5.1 at all?

    Now how about duplicating maps too?

    Map + empty map + Ink Sack + Feather


    Doesn't even work. The crafting result isn't my written book but 2 empty written books named "written book"
