You have to know what you are doing to be a great book print broker.
As a print broker, I’ve been in this or related businesses since 1971. You can’t be a print salesperson at one printer, and decide to set-up shop. Well, you can, but you won’t be successful for long, especially when trying to be a book print broker. It takes a lot more background and experience.
Working with only one printer limits us at Star Print Brokers, and therefore our clients. We focus on custom book printing in Asia, but prior experience adds to our expertise. Nancy Starkman owned a design firm, had ownership and management in newspapers, worked in color houses, sold national advertising to major accounts, and worked on direct mail campaigns for major non-profits for decades. And yes, worked with printers.
We pick and choose among the best printers for our book printing services.
Star Print Brokers represents our clients, not printers. We stand behind our work. If something goes wrong — it seldom does — we make it right with our clients. A good print broker is not just a middleman between printer and client. We are an insurance policy and serve a valuable purpose.
We’ve already tested and used the best printers from several countries in Asia.
What good is it to print 3,000 books when only 2,000 are in condition to sell?
We prevent that from happening. It takes skill, experience, and having a relationship with a number of great printers. Our clients keep coming back, and recommending us. We have the references to prove it!
Star Print Brokers works to support and protect our clients. We spend a great deal of time and energy developing the relationships we have with our printing vendors. Star takes great pride in the books we help produce and the service we provide to our clients.
Our printers all meet or exceed international standards and treat their employees with respect. If not, we would not work with them.
A professional book print broker represents the interests of the clients rather than those of any particular printer. Many people who hold themselves out as a print broker, are nothing more than an ex-sales rep for a printer. That is how they are compensated and that is where their loyalty resides. They would be happy to tell you the printer with whom the job would be placed because they work with only their employer.
