Quality photo book printing is our niche. Let’s be clear about what it is — and is not.
What quality photo book printing is not …
Some people just want a one-off photo book of their vacation, a gift book of family photos, or a special event keepsake. Books like this do not print on printing presses. They are single pages that are output on a digital device, similar to a desktop printing, but better quality. What you need to know is that toner smears when you wipe a moist finger across it. Ink on paper doesn’t smear. If you want a hardcover binding, you won’t get quality from print on-demand service providers. This is in part because the pages are printed out in single pages. We don’t do POD photo book printing.
We specialize in professional quality photography book printing. Photographers love our quality and expertise. We print photography books and coffee table books.
What quality photography book printing is …
Star Print Brokers has been in business since 1999. We specialize in professional quality photography book printing. Photographers love our quality and expertise. We print many photography books and coffee table books. The books print on commercial printing presses, in signatures.
A signature is a large sheet of paper with book pages printed on both sides. Then we fold the sheets several times to make booklets called signatures. The signatures are glued and / or Smyth sewn together to form the text block. This is the kind of book printing service we provide. The minimum is 1,000 hardcover or 2,000 soft cover books.
Quality photo book printing should have files created with Adobe Photoshop and InDesign.
We go a step further
Not only do we offer quality photo book printing, but we work with only the best printers and binderies. Just because a company prints books, doesn’t mean they do it well.
And just because printers from one country print a nice book, that doesn’t mean every printer in that country is up to the task. There are lots of places where the book printing process can go awry. We make sure that our authors receive high-quality books. Star Print Brokers stands behind the books we print, and we have the references to back it up! Star also has tons of repeat business, for quality photo book printing and book design.

A word 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? We have a secret for you. If you have your own ISBN and bar code, you already have access to brick-and-mortar bookstores. You are in the database already.
