Children’s Book Printing Project: Spotlight on It’s Your Birthday!

Ann O'Brien

July 23, 2022

Everyone loves birthdays, but this children’s book printing project does an incredible job of explaining how important the birthday child is! As the author, Terre O’Connor, indicates on the back cover of this delightful book, “This book was written about how important birthdays are. Each and everyone of us leaves a mark on this world and that would not happen if we were not born on the day we were born. Birthdays, to me, symbolize the day you came into this world and changed it forever!” What a beautiful sentiment for a beautiful book!

Client Review of Children’s Book Printing Project:

Why did you choose Publishing Xpress?

When I was searching online for a place that could print my book, I found your page.  It had a lot of useful information, including authors in different genres and what they use for binding, paper, and so on.  The pictures of their children’s books helped me choose what was best for mine.

How was your experience with Publishing Xpress?

I originally only ordered 50 books. I wasn’t sure if they would #1 sell, or #2 look and feel the way I wanted them to.  I sold all the 1st shipment within a week, and they looked and felt perfect.  Being a children’s book I wanted a soft cover that would be durable for little hands.  These were exactly that.  The illustrations are as vibrant as they should be. I could not be happier with the product.

How do you feel about the quality and timeliness of your project?

As indicated above the quality is second to none.  The books were accepted and printed in less than 2 weeks.  I was shocked at how fast they came.

Would you use Publishing Xpress again? Why?

 I actually just reordered the book with some minor changes to it.  I found a few spelling errors and I decided to make the back cover a synopsis of the book to make signing them easier.  Twice I reached out to Renee to change things and without any issues we were able to fix the book.  I have been considering using Amazon to sell the book, but the POD system worries me as I want the quality that Publishing Xpress is providing.

Is there anything you wish had been different?

I wish part of the “proofing” was a spell checker.
