Printers & Binderies

Book printing is an ancient and highly specialized business. It uses an unforgiving and high speed production system, and it is important to supply files that are exactly correct for the printer you use or problems and higher costs will result. For this reason many book printers will not accept jobs from non-publshers, since the problems that result are more costly than the income from the job. It is also important to use the right technical descriptions in requesting bids. You may try contacting one or more of the printers from our short list, or you can hire us a your temporary production manager to obtain the best bids for you and to and supervise production. Fees start at only $100 per title. For more information contact Books AtoZ Production Services.
