Factors to Consider While Choosing Book Printing Services

Friday, April 1st, 2022

Despite the ease and comfort of e-book readers, book lovers still prefer reading physical books. A survey by Voxburner found that 62% of people between the ages of 16 to 24 years preferred print books over e-books. The statistics show the power of print books as even the current generation that is swimming in selfies and mobile screens still indulge in printed copies instead of e-books. There is an emotional connection between readers and the spine of the book. Authors cannot afford to pass up that emotional connection, and therefore utilizing print medium, even in small quantities, can increase your readership. (more…)

As I’ve mentioned before, among other things my fiancee and I do art therapy work with the autistic. Often our projects bridge the gap between fine art and graphic design. Sometimes we do simple custom printing work that I also write about in the PIE Blog (for instance, cutting designs into styrofoam plates used in meat packaging and then inking and printing them). Other times we will discuss elements of commercial design when we’re creating collages that incorporate graphic type as well as images. (more…)

Three Factors to Consider While Selecting Book Printing Online Services

Monday, June 28th, 2021

Publishing a book is a complex task. Writing a book itself might feel overwhelming but the next and more important thing is the printing.

The visuals are a great way for readers to relate to the story and interact with the characters. Regardless of how amazing the graphics are, printing is always more important. (more…)

This client’s publishing house has hard deadlines for final book delivery. If a printer misses a deadline for delivery to the print book distributor, my client’s books get rejected. Ouch. (more…)
