Board Game Printing and Manufacturing

Board Game Printing is hard. Really hard. The amount of communication between you and us, and between us and the printing factory, can sometimes be overwhelming. Every step of the way - from design to execution - will require conversation and planning. Happily, we've been doing this since 2009 and have done thousands of projects with indie creators. We'd like to help you with your project. Scroll down for more information or click to start exploring pricing.

Trust your Board Game printing project to PrintNinja

Board Game Printing inspection for the Offset Printing process



Board game printing is really “board game manufacturing” and it has a lot of requirements; these are complex projects and you need a trusted, patient partner to bring them together.

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. In addition to board games, we do card games, comic books and graphic novels, and other printing – every day, the people that answer the phone and e-mails are immersed in the details of bringing customer creations to life in print. Our account managers are trained, experienced and easy to get along with. Our prepress artists patiently explain the process of getting your art ready for press. We hand-manage every 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 as your project comes together.

We have an office in China, and it makes an enormous difference in the level of quality and service that we can provide. Board game printing projects are labor-intensive, and China is still a great resource for labor-intensive projects. We’ve been working over there since 2009, so we’ve learned how to be successful working between cultures. The image above shows Daniel, our China office manager, inspecting the first sheets off of an offset press run in one of our factories. Over the past decade, we have developed deep relationships with high-quality, smaller-scale 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. You can have confidence in our ability to deliver specialty options and complex builds because we’re fluent in both English and Chinese, and our teams have been working together for many years.

Years of cumulative experience and the development of a strong 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.
