Only the Best … and reasonable
Premium Quality Offset Book Printing
Providing the highest quality sheet-fed, offset book printing and binding in signatures for authors and self-publishers … since 1999.
Located in Bellevue Washington, SPB offers offset book printing in Asia (never China). We are reasonable and provide higher quality and lower cost than in USA. We never print “on-demand” because we care about quality and unit cost. Save up to 70 percent. Get a same day ballpark quote, references, and sample books are sent on request after we provide a ballpark quote! The minimum: 1,000 hardcover, 2,000 soft cover or 1,000 board books.
The Best … We do not work with just one printer. We work with only the best!
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. We maintain high-quality.
Volume … You will pay no more at SPB, because we print in volume, getting deep discounts.
Why? We negotiate deep discounts and that is how we profit. Secondly, not only can our clients get fair pricing, but printers are anxious to work with us. Printers adjust pricing accordingly, plus we handle everything for our clients.
No China printing … Thirdly, and most important, we never print in China, the country.
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 with select printers in Asia — but in other countries. We seldom print in the USA as the unit cost is higher, the quality is not as good, and we can offer more options with our select providers in Asia.
Guarantee … In addition, Star Print Brokers stands 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 incorporated in 1999 and are located in Bellevue, Washington. References and samples available on request after ballpark quote is requested.
Offset printing in signatures
Offset press book printing in signatures.
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 Smythe 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 POD (print-on-demand) 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 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 sells more copies.
