Book printing and binding in Asia by Star Print Brokers
We do not work with just one printer.
Firstly, SPB curates a select cadre of printers and we print titles in high volume. As a result, we can negotiate lower offset book printing and shipping costs for self-publishers and small publishers.
You will pay no more for our services.
Why? We negotiate deep discounts and that is how we profit. Secondly, not only do our clients get fair pricing, but printers are anxious to work with us. They adjust pricing accordingly, plus we handle everything for our clients.
Thirdly, and most important, we never print in the country of China.
The quality of product and service is not up to Star Print Brokers standards. Additionally, censorship can be a major problem. But, we do offer premium offset book printing in Asia — but in other countries.
In addition, we stand behind the books we print.
Because we print many titles, we have leverage with our offset book printing companies that self-publishers simply do not have. We’ve been in business since 1999 and are located in Bellevue, Washington.

Offset printing in signatures
No POD output, one page at a time
Offset press book printing … only.
Star Print Brokers prints the highest quality books with real ink for offset presses, and in signatures. These signatures are folded into booklets that are Smyth sewn together or sometimes glued. Self-publishers appreciate our paper quality. Real press proofs can only be printed on an offset press. We offer both output proofs (included in quote) and press proofs (extra cost.)
No on-demand page output.
We never “output” single pages from an output device. We print on press. Output pages are apply toner, not ink, and toner smears when wiped with a moist finger. On-Demand books are not bound in the same professional way as conventional book manufacturing. Press proofs are not an option, no matter what the provider says.

Great design means more sales
It’s optional! A graphic artist is not necessarily a book designer. Nancy Starkman is the author of Book Design: Simple & Professional. Few schools teach book design, therefore, she wrote the book. Moreover, Nancy and her team can change an average book into a professionally designed book that looks great and sell more copies.
