This perfect bound book printing project was truly inspirational! Sole Bros Inc. came into being when a trio of sneaker-loving friends discovered that there were kids around the world who didn’t have any shoes at all. Filled with concern, they boxed up all of the shoes they’d outgrown to ship to needy kids, then asked their other friends to do the same.
Then they asked churches and schools, partnered with nonprofits, added two more friends to the core group, and found their mission to deliver quality sneakers to kids in the Caribbean, Africa, and poverty-stricken parts of the United States (in-between attending high school classes and sports practices, of course!).
This project tells the background story of Sole Bros, with photos and a fun text font. It encourages the reader to contribute shoes or nice notes to those in need, as well as to change the world in their own way. In their words, “Our generation isn’t lost, we just seek to be inspired.”
This was a great project for a wonderful cause! It is truly a delight to work with young people who are committed to making the world a better place in whatever way they can.

Why did you select Publishing Xpress?
Google Search and turn around time. We wanted to have books in time for World Read Aloud Day. Ease of use of the website was critical as well. We had NO IDEA what we were doing!
How was your experience with Publishing Xpress?
Awesome! Sole Bros Inc. is a group of 10th graders doing international philanthropy. We can’t talk on the phone during normal business hours because we are in school or at sports practices (we are all athletes as well). One of our moms serves as our Media Rep, but she works during the day also. It’s awesome when she can do things for us that don’t require a bunch of phone calls!
How do you feel about the quality and timeliness of your project?
WE LOVE IT! It’s a big hit so far. We just started our Book Tour and sold 114 books on the first day!
Would you use Publishing Xpress again? Why?
Absolutely! It’s so easy. We hope to get lots of orders and have even begun thinking of shipping direct to the client for big orders.
Is there anything you wish had been different?
No. It has been a great experience!
