Design & Printing


We love books and we love designing them! Our team will get on a call with you to discuss your ideas and thoughts about your book before we do anything else. Once we have a clear idea about your vision for your book we will start the design process. Our process is simple; we come up with multiple ideas for the design of your book. You will receive several different designs for your cover, chapter heads and text pages. After we have received your feedback and thoughts we refine our designs and send them to you. This may go on for several rounds to get it just right. Once we have the design agreed upon, we start laying the book out.

If you have digital photos we check the files for resolution, color and size. We will color correct the images if necessary and put them into the layout. If you have art or photos that need scanning, we do that for you. Once the text, art and photos are in place, we send you pdf proofs to look at. After receiving the proofs and receiving comments from you, we make any corrections needed and send revised proofs to you. The final step is hard copy proofing of the dust jacket or cover and a few representative pages for you to approve.

Upon approval, your book goes to press! We ship to the destination of your choice and your book is born!


We print textbooks, coffee table books and everything in-between with a wide range of sizes, covers and finishes to suit your needs. Whether you want a soft cover, hard cover, short run, long run, we have you covered. Your book is printed on the press best suited for the type of book you want. Color, black and white or on demand, we have your back.
