How PrintNinja Can Make Your Project a Reality



Why Choose PrintNinja?
Art book printing projects are challenging for any printer! Artists are visually sensitive, and they require that their work is reproduced accurately and beautifully. Happily, PrintNinja’s process is well-suited to meet these challenges, and we consistently satisfy customers with our communication and our final printed output. You should add PrintNinja to your short list of potential printers for your project.

Our success stories and excellent testimonials from art book printing customers begin with our process. We use offset printing technology – all the time. We don’t do digital, and we don’t provide large format services. (We can and have printed and bound full parent sheets, but no banners, signs, etc.) Offset printing technology lets us offer an exciting array of high-quality papers, finishes and binding types. The ink is “in” the paper rather than “on” the paper like you would have in a Digital or POD printing process. There’s a tradeoff – the MOQs are higher for offset than for digital – but if you’ve spent months or years getting your work right, it deserves the right printing process. The argument and the math are both pretty simple.


About Our Customer Service
A little bit about us: our customer service team is based in Chicago. We do custom printing every day – and much of our work is with creators and indie publishers. Our work is a delightful blend – from graphic novelists to first-time comic producers to cookbook authors. They all want great printing and they choose to use our services. We’ve responded by hiring passionate account managers that are well-trained, experienced and easy to get along with. Our prepress artists patiently explain the process of getting your art ready for press and pay attention to detail after detail. We hand-manage every print job from the time of first inquiry until the job is delivered to your final location. That level of involvement and commitment means short response times to questions and effective communication back and forth when should issues or questions arise.

Why Choose PrintNinja?
We have our own printing office in China. That makes an enormous difference in the level of quality and service that we can provide. Custom Art Book printing projects are all very much small-run projects. China is still a great resource for small runs of high-quality printed materials. PrintNinja has been helping qualit-conscious customers print in China since 2009 – so we’ve got a pretty good handle on it! We’ve spent the decade developing deep relationships with small, high-quality, conscientious printing companies in southeast China. These are printers that pay attention to detail and insist on putting out quality products. We’re there with them in the factories to represent your interest and to make sure that the goods that come off press are exactly what you expect and deserve.

All of this experience and infrastructure makes it easy for us to offer quality guarantees, and we’re delighted that it results in strong references. Our testimonials and service ratings attest to the fact that our systems and people are good at helping deliver quality printing jobs to customers. If you are shopping for someone to handle your art book printing project, you can click through onto our instant price calculators to get started today – samples and development resources are just a few clicks away.

Fantastic service, fast replies, trustworthy people all around! I'm definitely using them again.

First time printing an artbook with illustrations from 52 different people, so... quality needed to be beyond superb. PrintNinja are the very best when it comes to printing.

Customer service is among the best I've ever seen. It was my first experience printing outside US and I was reluctant, but I recommend PrintNinja as a painless turn-key solution.
