The blog begins a decade ago. If you are new to Star Print Brokers, welcome!
The blog begins here in 2011. But, Star Print Brokers is not new. Our blog began with this post. We print high-quality books in Asia for authors and self-publishers. We offer many custom options.
The Blog begins on June 29, 2011.
Books are a different beast than most printed materials
You really have to know what you are doing to design a book, print it, get the color right, bind it properly, and ship books so they arrive safely. If you are like most people, you may think it is a simple task. Just contact a printer and they will handle it all, right? … And that’s where the fun begins! If you have a great printer, and everything works well for you … wonderful. But, if you are like the majority of authors and small publishers (you may have heard the horror stories), you have not been so lucky, especially when it comes to photography books, art books, coffee table and large format books. That is our specialty!
We always say …
What good is it to print 3,000 books if you can only sell 1,000 because of quality issues? We always stand behind the books we print at Star Print Brokers. Star has references to prove it. Our staff guides our clients, so that their book is set-up properly, to print on press and achieve the results they assume they will get with any printer. One cannot make assumptions in this business! SPB selects the right printer for your style book. When the rare occasion arises that something goes wrong, we take care of our clients. We represent clients, not printers, so we have only the client’s interests at heart!
What do you envision now that our blog begins, well, in 2011, for self-publishers?
We work with our clients to manufacture the finest printed and bound books they envision. If you do not need the highest quality, we can guide you through the process of cost-cutting measures. We will help you have reasonable expectations of what to expect that is in line with the finished book shipped to your door. There are so many things we do in addition to great book printing and design at reasonable costs. We would love to provide you with a no obligation quote for you first, or next title!
