Book printing services that are always high-quality.
High-quality book printing services for all kinds of books. We also provide book design, and hard to find custom options, some of which are not found elsewhere. Plus, we create fixed-layout ebooks.
Offset book printing.
We begin this journey in 1999, and now two decades later, we are still printing the finest of books. Our books do not print on-demand. That is not good enough. You see, we really care about top quality printing, binding, and beautiful accurate color. We care about options that are hard-to-find elsewhere. Minimum 1,000 hardcover, 2,000 soft cover, or 1,000 board books.
Our clients care too, which is why we are still printing books after all these years, and our clients coming back for multiple run print runs.
Incidentally, a lot of our self-publishers move over from other providers come to us from print on-demand suppliers, and printers in the USA where the unit cost is very high and the quality is not as anywhere near as nice. USA printers don’t typically add in delivery to the door. Instead they quote FOB. We most often quote DDP; always for USA delivery.
SPB prints many books with our overseas partner printers. You’ll have no concern about quality issues with our book printing services.
Specializing in art, photography, and large format offset book printing services.
Many of the self-publishers we represent, print books economically in Asia with Star Print Brokers. We also print short-run books domestically, but we seldom print in the USA now because of cost ad quality concerns to self-publish.
It is challenging for many to be a high-quality book printing service for art and photography books, and offset book printing. Clients require great color reproduction. We deliver beautiful, “pleasing color” for all our books, so the files need to be properly set-up. SPB can also deliver excellent “exact match” color.
In-house book design is available
We can consult with you or your designer. Books are typically set-up in InDesign. Word can be used too, but most often for novels.
- High-quality offset book printing services: Star Print Brokers prints beautiful books, in signatures, and on commercial offset book printing presses.
- Quality binding: We manufacture books with a variety of binding styles that stay bound.
- Process color: SPB provides pleasing color as the standard. But, we can also provide exact match color, which is important to professional photographers and artists.
- Worldwide: We ship almost anywhere, and with clients all over the world. Your books are shipping on container ships to port and we clear customs.
- Delivery to door: The books will deliver by truck to your door, DDP (Delivery Duty Paid.) Unless we say otherwise, this is also in your quote.
- Quantity: Large volume, high quality book printing services, and our standard is offset book printing.
- Fixed-layout ebooks: The ebook conversion cost depends on the complexity and page count.
With our offset book printing services and book design services, we supply clients with project management, advice on printing, color, working with files, book construction, working with digital proofs and press proofs, customs, delivery, and more. It is all part of our high-quality book printing services.
Note: We promote China book printing in our search optimization keywords, but we never 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.
Shipping, customs and delivery.
- Shipping cartons are custom made for your books, not just a standard box size.
- We follow the shipping from the foreign port to your door.
- Shipping is as short as 9 to 11 days to port and a little longer to the East Coast. While ocean shipping adds time versus printing domestically, the trade-off is lower unit cost books. Our quality is wonderful!
- Star Print Brokers ships to US West Coast or East Coast ports, Europe, or almost anywhere in the world.
- SPB handles customs and all communications.
- All quotes are DDP. Shipping and duty are included in your quote unless stated otherwise.
- Books are insured to the door which is another benefit to SPB’s high quality book printing.
- After we print and bind all of the books, they are put into custom export cartons that have your carton markings. The cartons will load on pallets, and the pallet(s) have shrink wrap for further protection.
- The pallets will load into a container and will transfer transfer to ship.
- When the ship makes port, we clear customs and pay duty, unless we note otherwise in your quote. Depending on the final destination, the books will either go by rail and truck, or local truck delivery to your door.
Professional book design by a book designer.
Book design is another book printing services option. Nancy Starkman does most of the book design for clients who select this as an option. However, when there are many books in the queue, she does have a team to keep books on schedule. Nancy will still layout the basic design, have a team member execute it, and then she will oversee the design.
Standard ebooks flow text and images from page to page. But, if you are printing a book with photos or illustrations, you probably want your ebook to appear just like the pages in your books. That is what a fixed-layout ebook does.
We offer fixed-layout ebook conversion, single ISBN and Barcode purchase, layout, scanning, and typesetting, image conversion to CMYK, and more.
Star Print Brokers’ high-quality book printing services represents clients, not printers. We are your representatives — and have many years of experience saving our clients money — and avoiding costly mistakes.
We’ve been working with our select vendors for years, and we have high standards to guide them. Facilities, equipment, and personnel change. Therefore, we are constantly reviewing books, products, and workmanship. We provide high-quality products.
You receive one printing quote from Star Print Brokers. But, behind the scenes, we negotiate with a number of our regular partners. Star Print Brokers’ high quality book printing services find the lowest cost among vendors who are the best fit for your book or project. We get lower trade pricing because we do volume business, so you will pay no more for our services. SPB will quote DDP, which included duty and delivery to the door. This is so you will know all the print and delivery costs upfront.
Asia costs less than printing in USA or Canada. Star Print Brokers can print short-run books in USA, but seldom does any longer. Rather, we opt for minimum or large high-quality book printing runs in Asia. The quality is best with our select printers and the cost more reasonable. We have many resources in Asia.
