Do you print in 4 colors?

 
  Yes, that is almost all that we do! Experience shows that a 4-colour book printed in Asia costs about the same price as a book printed only in black and white in the West. As a matter of fact, we only accept work that is predominantly composed of 4-colour printing. So if you print in Asia, print in glorious colour!

Do I get to have a peek at the final printed book or product before all the work is done?

 
  Of course! Before each subsequent step, you will receive white dummies, digital proofs, pre-production samples, as well as binding and assembly samples. We will not go on to the next step without your approval.

Do you have to go to Asia often?

 
  No. Having 20 years of experience in Asian printing and sourcing, the quality control procedures and processes we have established allow us to use our time visiting you rather than our partners! We want to keep in touch with you! However, we do travel to Asia once a year to discuss continual improvements in service and efficiency with our partners. Also, we meet at important trade fairs such as the Frankfurt Book Fair and the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.

Do you accept manuscripts?

 
  No. We are not publishers. First and foremost, we are at the service of publishers!
