Getting help choosing printing, binding, and shipping options

One of the first things you’ll need to determine is how you want your self published book, magazine, or other publication printed. Our staff can provide knowledgeable assistance in explaining your options for size, paper, binding, and shipping. We will also provide quotes for various options and the quantity you wish to print.

Sending and proofing the document

The next step in the process is to send us your formatted digital document. As publishers who care about the quality of the final product, we’ll do a test print and inspect your document for errors. After both parties are confident the document is error-free, we will upload a PDF file for proofing. You can also request a hard copy proof. We will not print your publication until you have given us final approval on these proofs.

Printing and shipping your publication

Once you have approved the proof of your document, we will print and ship your order. This will occur within 5 business days of approval. Be sure to check with our representatives about expedited printing and shipping options if your publication is time-sensitive.
