Submit PDFs for Printing

Send us your files, or just your PDFs. Use our FTP site, DropBox, or whatever you like to use. You can also email if the PDFs aren't too large, or mail / FedEx / UPS to our offices.

FTP Instructions

Approve Physical Color Proofs

We send you a full set of digitally output color proofs for you to approve, and to keep. Press proofs are available, but be sure to select that options on your request for quote.

Approving proofs

Print Books, Bind and Prepare to Ship

We print on printing presses, in signatures. Books are well-bound as they must be secure. No pages fall out, ever! We can bind so that reference books or cookbooks lay flat, even hardcovers.

Print, Bind, and prep to Ship

Approve 5 Advance Copies

The books are bound and put in cartons that are custom made for your books. The cartons go on pallets. We send 5 copies from the press run. Approve them promptly, so the shipment can release.

Advance Copies

Book Delivery to Door

After approval, the books are shipped Delivered Duty Paid (DDP) to your door. We include all foreseeable costs in our quotes, including duty and customs, which we handle for you.

About Book Delivery

Website, Social Media, Marketing

Unless you have a network of buyers, create a website before design or printing. It takes time to build an email list, and find followers on social media. Marketing is ongoing, even with major publishers.

Free Marketing Guide

Open an Author Account at Amazon

You print with us for the best quality books. List your title on Amazon because it has the most traffic. Choose keywords that tie into your Author Page, and your website.

Kim Messina Testimonial

If you are pondering whether or not to print your hardcover children's book with Star Print - think no more. Just do it! I am a perfectionist, and I can tell you that our book, Happy Love Sprinkles, was absolutely perfect! The silky smooth, matte-finish dust jacket added a polished, high-end look. The interior pages were thick, and the colors were gorgeous. We were intent on getting these books placed in local boutique stores, and the quality of the printed book has made that task easier - store owners always comment on the superior "gift-quality" nature of the book. I couldn't be happier with the finished product. Since then, I have printed a second book with them--If You Could Ask Your Dog One Question--with the same superior results. I highly recommend this company to print your books.
