Our quality hardback books have beautiful printing and are well-bound.
Hardback books are our specialty, especially when it comes to photography books and coffee table books. We say it all the time. Printing is an art. Quality printing is ink on quality paper, not toner on paper. The quality of our printing and binding greatly surpasses any print-on-demand hardcover books. By the way, hardback books are also known by the term “hardcover books.”
We offer high-quality choices; materials, extra options and embellishments for hardback books.
Choose a case laminate on the cover, in matte or gloss. Not only do we have different colors of cloth, but we also have different textures! Hardback books can be bound in a variety of bonded leather textures and colors. The leather can be real or save money with faux or vegan leather. We even have suede! Authors can choose no dust jacket, a standard dust jacket, or a French fold dust jacket.
Do you love blind stamping, or would you rather have foil stamping. We can also foil stamp the spine when doing the cover stamping. The spine letters are in your typeface, not block letters. How about a permanent printed image on the front cover of a cloth bound hardback? We can do it!
Do you need a slip case, a ribbon marker, a belly band? We have so many options because all of the hardback books we print and bind are custom manufactured. There are no standard sizes unless that is what you want. We can even bind books by hand, if necessary. Star Print Brokers is also known for large format books. We print 12 x 12 and larger. We do have some limitations, and there are limits in terms of a book binding being cost effective. Tell us what you want to do, and we will give you a cost and guidance. We have many, many more options that print-on-demand or short run printers. That is why so many top photographer use Star Print Brokers.
Printing color that is true to the author’s files.
Star Print Brokers are experts in high-quality book printing on press. We are also experts in color reproduction. All color books are provided with a full set of color proofs. If the color isn’t quite what you expect in the proofing process, we will explain why that might be, and provide guidance for the next steps. InDesign is the standard in book design and layout.
How to tell Books if books are expertly bound.
A well-bound book does not have visible strings when the book is open. We provide guidance for when a book should be Smyth sewn. We have lay flat bindings and can achieve a lay flat book through other types of binding. Do you want printed endpapers? Yes, we can do that too!
Print your hardback book with Star Print Brokers! The best part of all is that we don’t pay you royalties, because, the author keeps all the profit.
A note about distribution.
If you use an on-demand service, do you actually get your book into brick-and-mortar bookstores, or just have access to those bookstores? This should not be a secret. If you have your own ISBN and barcode, you already have access to brick-and-mortar bookstores. You are in the database.
