My Yacht Designs and the Lessons They Taught Me.
A new book, My Yacht Designs and the Lessons They Taught Me by Chuck Paine.
My Yacht Designs was printed by Star Print Brokers
The loose, standard size dust jacket which is the image on the left, has a design that is different from the hardcover book. The dust jacket shows 16 photographs of yachts that are designed by Chuck Paine. It gives the buyer a sense of the varied yacht designs. See some sample pricing for book design.
The cover wrap, which is the actual book on the right, has a cloth cover. It also has a gold foil stamp, and tip-on cover image. We print the tip-on image, and then we apply a UV gloss varnish to it. We place the image by hand to position the image correctly, and to adhere to a burnish area of the cloth on the cover.
Star Print Brokers offer a variety of cloth textures and colors, and that is an example of the kind of special treatment we provide here. Print on demand service providers don’t offer the many choices we offer, to make your book perfect for you. More importantly, they cannot compete with the quality of our printing, binding, and materials that we use. We custom manufacture books and we believe that we are better than our competitors. SPB is also less costly on a per unit basis.
This book is not primarily a technical treatise on yacht design. It is about hard won lessons. In a career as long and varied as mine you inevitably make mistakes and learn from them, you take risks and some come up winners. These lessons, be they revelations or missteps, are hard won gems, and I’ve highlighted them throughout the book.
