Book Printing – Alternative for Self Publishers

Book printing is still a strong industry. Even in these days of mp3 players and devices that download electronic books from the big book sellers. Despite the fact that many authors are publishing their books to these electronic devices, they still demand that a print version of their book be available to consumers.

Many of these authors self publish their books and so need a place to do the book printing for them that is not going to break the bank. Printing has actually become much more affordable than it once was. This is because of technology and significant advances of the way things work within the printing industry.

The same holds true for printing companies in China. In many cases, the technology is better than you can find even in the local mom and pop print shop and the savings you can realize are astounding. Let’s face it – if you are publishing your own book then you want to get the book printing done without breaking the bank to do it. Take the money you save from choosing to print your project with a company like LongPack Printing and use it towards your marketing efforts for your book.

Children’s Book Printing

Children’s book printing was once an expensive proposition, but no longer. This is especially so if you choose to have the printing done in China. When you combine the total cost of the project along with shipping charges, it can still come to a much lower total cost than having the job done on the local level.

Most children’s book printing jobs will end up with a final product that is perhaps 10 pages give or take a few and they are generally done in color. The problem for most authors then, is by the time they absorb the costs of printing of the books, they may break even or even lose money on the project. That is not necessarily the case however when you contract LongPack Printing in China to do the project for you.

Another consideration with children’s book printing is printing more copies of the book during a print run which will ultimately lower the cost per item. This means more books to sell, but that is not necessarily a bad thing.
