Art Book Printing
Art book printing customers are challenging for any printer! They have exacting requirements and they want their work to be reproduced accurately and beautifully. Happily, our process is well-suited to meet these challenges, and we consistently satisfy customers with our communication and our printed output. You should add us to your short list of potential printers for your project.
Our success stories and excellent testimonials from art book printing customers begin with our printing process. We are all offset, all the time. We don't do digital, and we don't provide large format services. (We can and have printed and bound full parent sheets, but nothing larger than that.) Offset printing lets us offer an exciting array of high-quality papers, finishes and binding types. The ink is "in" the paper rather than "on" the paper like you would have in a Digital or POD printing process. There's a tradeoff – the MOQs are higher for offset than for digital – but if you've spent months or years getting your work right, it deserves the right printing process. The argument and the math are both pretty simple.
A little bit about us: our customer service team is based in Chicago. We do custom printing every day – and much of our work is with creators and indie publishers. Our work is a delightful blend – from graphic novelists to first-time comic producers to cookbook authors. They all want great printing and they choose to use our services. We've responded by hiring passionate account managers that are well-trained, experienced and easy to get along with. Our prepress artists patiently explain the process of getting your art ready for press and pay attention to detail after detail. We hand-manage every print job from the time of first inquiry until the job is delivered to your final location. That level of involvement and commitment means short response times to questions and effective communication back and forth when should issues or questions arise.
We have an office in China, and it makes an enormous difference in the level of quality and service that we can provide. Custom Art Book printing projects are very much small-run endeavors, and China is a great resource for small runs of high-quality printed materials. We've been printing there since 2009, so we've got a pretty good handle on it! The image above shows Daniel, our China office manager, inspecting the first sheets off of an offset press run in one of our factories. Over the past decade, we have developed deep relationships with high-quality, conscientious printing companies in southeast China. These are printers that pay attention to detail and insist on putting out quality products. We're there with them in the factories to represent your interest and to make sure that the goods that come off press are exactly what you expect and deserve.
All of this experience and infrastructure makes it easy for us to offer quality guarantees, and we're delighted that it results in strong references. Our testimonials and service ratings attest to the fact that our systems and people are good at helping deliver quality printing jobs to customers.
