Hardcover Book Printing inspection for the Offset Printing process



We don’t know what’s inside your book, but you’re searching out hardcover book printing because you want those contents bound with a hard cover. You’ve come to the right place – we have a lot of cover options for you to consider. We can do cloth-covered covers, printed covers, faux leather covers, foil covers – and we can dust jackets to give your project an added level of professionalism should your project call for it. Most of our customers have content that is either full color inside or mixed color and black and white – we can handle whatever you want printed between the covers.

A little bit about us: our customer service team is based in Chicago. We work on custom printing projects every day. Much of our work is with creators and indie publishers. We don’t specialize in one genre, but we do specialize in offset printing – which is higher quality and has better ink durability than digital printing processes. Our account managers are trained, experienced and easy to get along with. Our prepress artists will patiently explain the process of getting your art ready for press. We hand-manage every print job from the time of first inquiry until the time that 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.

We have an office in China, and it makes an enormous difference in the level of quality and service that we can provide. Hardcover book printing projects require more coordination than saddle-stitched or perfect-bound books, and having “boots on the ground” makes a big difference when it comes to guaranteeing great results. China is a great resource for small runs of high-quality printed materials. We’ve been printing there since 2009, so we’ve got a pretty good handle on it! 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.

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.

They gave a great technical review that helped us repair some flaws in our layout before going to print, and were totally cool with our intermittent communication as we managed the whole process during our busy travel season. The books are beautiful, and I can't wait to start delivering them to our Kickstarter backers!

They have reliable, knowledgeable and friendly customer service. They also have a great variety of printing finish options, paper and formats. I was blown away by the production quality of the books.

I loved my experience with PrintNinja - responsive, beautiful product, and so many customized options to make my book really stand out.
