Thank you for the tips! I need to print a couple hundred brochures for a Christmas party. I have never used a printing service before so I don't know where to start. Now I know the right direction to go!

My brother is writing a book and he is almost done with the final draft. He would like to publish his book soon. However, he doesn't know where to go to get it printed. Does anyone know of a publishing company that would do that?

Thank you for the tips! I have been looking for a good commercial printer for several weeks now. I need to print a thousand brochures for an upcoming event. I think your ideas will help me find a good company to go with! I hope it doesn't cost to much!

This is definitely something I'd like to know. I'm a beginning author and it's sort of hard to get a start as an author if you don't have someone that will print your book. It's sometimes hard to tell which ones are good printers and that will be willing to work with you and your project. However, I'll have to check out some of the suggested printers on here.

When doing book printing it seems like you would want to get the highest quality of printer. That way there are no errors because of the printer. My aunt published a book and they had some really fancy printers that they used.

I think it's important to make sure that you get the best help available to you. I know that I have tried to figure out things like this for a while. Commercial printing is just one thing among a much larger group of things you have to be ready for when it comes to running a business. I hope that people figure out ways to make this type of thing work well for them. I know I would want to do everything I could to figure out this type of thing.

Don't you typically need someone who is willing to publish your book first? Most printing companies have a cost by page, right? I believe the cost is different for a paper back versus a hard cover book though. I'm not sure how significant of a difference it is though.
