We print a lot of church directories and this church directory printing project for Faith Baptist Church was a delight to print. It was set up with plenty of white space, making it visually appealing. All important information was included — a message from the pastor, a church history, pictures of the church officers, and beautiful pictures of the church members. We’re sure it’s a directory that the members will cherish for a long time.

Why did you choose Publishing Xpress?
I chose Publishing Xpress after searching for a publisher to work with for the church directory. As a photographer, I am always looking to deliver a quality product to my customers. After searching through several local publishing companies and many online services, I chose Publishing Xpress. The first thing that impressed me about Publishing Xpress was the quick quote service offered on your website. It gave me an instant quote that I could take back to my client to help them make the most informed decision about what they wanted. The second thing that impressed me about Publishing Xpress was the sample kit that they sent to me free of charge. It gave me concrete examples of all of the binding options and paper options. That, more than anything, directed my decision. I was impressed with the color and print quality of the samples as well.
How was your experience with Publishing Xpress?
From the moment I requested the sample kit, Renee Benson was very helpful to me. She sent emails offering to help in any way that she could to get the project up and running. I was able to ask any and all questions that I had about the process along the way. The tutorials offered on Publishing Xpress’ website were also extremely helpful to get the project finished properly. Once I submitted my PDF of the directory, I had a digital proof within a short period of time. Once I approved the digital proof, they sent a hard copy proof. Once that was approved, it was only a short amount of time before I got a shipping confirmation email and then the books arrived. From the moment I uploaded until the books arrived at my door was a very quick time period.
How do you feel about the quality and timeliness of your project?
I was very impressed with the quality of the church directory. The binding and paper quality were phenomenal. The church members have raved about how impressed they are with the directory. One lady told me that she just couldn’t put it down and kept flipping through it over and over! The printing timeline was very quick, and I don’t think I could have worked with a better publisher.
Would you use Publishing Xpress again? Why?
I would definitely use Publishing Xpress again in the future. In fact, this project has given me the confidence to include church directories as one of my photographic services on my website. I would not hesitate to work with Publishing Xpress and specifically, Renee Benson in the future.
Is there anything you wish had been different?
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. The process was smooth, clear, and understandable, and I had support right at my fingertips.
