How should I choose a book printing company?

Book Printing Choices

There are a number of factors the self publisher must look at when deciding on the right self publishing option. One of the key choices is which book printing company to go with. Some factors to consider include:

  • The print quality required - this will determine whether you choose a digital printer, print on demand company or a book printer with a traditional offset press. This choice will also be determined by the relative cost of those options.
  • The location of the book printer - this may be particularly important for your first self published book. One advantage for choosing a local printer using the traditional offset technology is that you can drop in, inspect the printing and collect the books yourself, saving a small fortune in shipping costs.
