Let’s be real: printing, binding, warehousing and shipping can be a huge pain in the neck.
That’s why more and more, publishers are turning to third-party book printers and fulfillment companies to help them offload this important (but time-consuming) task.
Working with a great book printer and fulfillment company can provide huge emotional relief for publishers.
No longer do you have to worry about the nitty-gritty details of book production and logistics; instead, you can focus on what you do best: generating demand and creating great content.
And with the help of a trusted partner, you can rest easy knowing that your books are in good hands!
But the question remains: how do you find a great book printer and fulfillment company?
Do your research
When searching for a reputable printer, look for a company that has a proven track record of producing high-quality books and delivering them on time.
And don’t be afraid to ask for references! After all, you want to work with a company that is reliable, responsive, and easy to work with. Right?
Consider range of services
Another key factor to consider is the range of services that the book printer and fulfillment company offers.
Do they provide a wide range of printing options, such as cut sheet and web fed printing? Do they offer a variety of binding and finishing options, such as hardcover binding, perfect binding, plastic coil binding and saddle stitching?
At the very least, your printer should be able to print (and take full responsibility for) your creative ideas, helping you at each step of the process to ensure optimal printing outcomes.
Ask about product fulfillment and distribution
Finally, what about fulfillment services?
Does this printer offer warehousing, shipping, and distribution services to ensure that your books get to their destination on time (and in good condition?)
With so much of the production process happening on the back end of your material processing, it’s imperative that you ensure a printer is masterful in terms of logistics—not just material creation.
