The Team … more about us
Nancy Starkman and Edward Starkman incorporated SPB in 1999. The company is based in Bellevue, ten miles east of Seattle. SPB represents only clients. We work with a small group of only the best printers. Our printers are already proven, and have what it takes to work with Star Print Brokers. SPB is on the author’s side if there is a problem! This is what you need to know about us.
Nancy’s been in publishing, printing, color reproduction, and design for several decades.
The family also owned Whole Valley Graphics too. The design business grew from the success of the newspaper. Nancy worked in every capacity over the years, and was co-publisher and art director. She designed thousands of ads. She and her staff also designed collateral and ads for businesses advertising in daily newspapers. Most noteworthy, Nancy won several design awards. While working, she went to Diablo Valley College.
Later, Nancy was hired by Lesher Communications. She was an account executive in major accounts. She managed 20 major advertisers, more or less. The major account staff worked from the Contra Costa Times, one for their six daily newspapers.
Nancy’s accounts included Target, Mervyn’s, and Good Guys. She represented six daily newspapers, a dozen weeklies, and sold direct mail. She saw that the newspaper business would be losing advertising revenue to the internet and she needed to start reinventing herself. Finally, Nancy moved to Bellevue in 1991.
Moving to Seattle from the San Francisco Bay Area
In Bellevue and Seattle, Nancy used her experience in selling color separations, printing, direct mail, and fulfillment services. Nancy was the display advertising manager for a Seattle Times owned newspaper. She also created a major accounts department for a chain of community newspapers.
Edward was an airline analyst on Wall Street. Since 1999 he’s been handling the finance and logistics for Star Print Brokers, working with self-publishers printing books.
Moving to Seattle from New York City
Edward was living in Manhattan when he and Nancy met. The decision was made to live in Bellevue. Edward’s last position prior to SPB was a vice-president with UBS Warburg.
More about us … in addition to supporting self-publishers
Star Print Brokers came about because of Nancy and Edward’s desire for their own business. They utilized their combined experience, education, and expertise. SPB was incorporated in Washington state in January 1999.

Most of all, please ask about us and get a quote …
We promote China book printing in our search optimization keywords, but we don’t print in China. While China is a popular search term, we only use it to be found in searches. We print books in other countries in Asia. Consequently, we provide superior quality books. That is yet another reason to print books with SPB.
