How did you select Publishing Xpress?
I’ve used other printing companies in the past, and was unhappy with how expensive it was to print books that weren’t even of nice quality. The papers would be flimsy and cheap…not the professional feel that I wanted. When looking for a printer for “Spruce Spricket,” I did a wider internet search and requested samples from a variety of companies. Publishing Xpress really stood out to me! Not only was their print quality gorgeous, but they were super friendly and quick to answer all my questions.
Also, they were one of the few companies willing to accommodate my landscape perfect-bound book.
How was your experience with Publishing Xpress?
It was great! I couldn’t be more happy, and have recommended them to friends. This was my first venture in publishing and printing my own children’s book to sell in my own shop, as well as others across the country. I really wanted to get it right, and ended up sending in a lot of revisions. Publishing Xpress was so helpful and was there for me along the way. Every time I had a question (I had LOTS!) I would get a fast and friendly reply.
Was your project completed on time?
Yes! I had a tight deadline, but I got it delivered right in time!
Were you happy with the quality of your project?
Yes. I illustrated my book in gouache paint and was concerned that some of the detail would be lost in printing. The colors came out so vivid and bright in the prints. They look exactly like my paintings!
Would you use Publishing Xpress again?
Of course! I already have ideas for my next children’s book!
