With so many electronic and print options available these days to get your content in front of your audience, where do you begin?
Whether you are publishing a portfolio of your artwork, a novel, a zine, a technical manual, financial report or anything else, sometimes having a well-made hard copy in hand just can’t be beat. A physical version of your content makes your ideas tangible and can get the attention of the people you are trying to reach.
Did you know you can make high quality, professionally bound books in any quantity, even just one? Perfect binding is an affordable way to have really great-looking prototype to show before going to press with the entire run. We can also produce hardcover casebound books, along with a variety of other binding options. And when you’re ready to produce more, we can provide the best quality and quick turnaround on any size order.
Art Director Charlene Cardenas came in to have her updated portfolio printed before pitching her work for a new project. We printed images of her film sets on Epson archival art paper and used wire binding with a beautiful, minimal, matte white cover which conceals the spine and added a translucent vellum title sheet. With this format you can even remove and replace pages as your body of work evolves. Have a look.
We often work with artists publishing their own work. Adam Roth’s illustrations were a big hit at Zinefest LA. We helped him make it look it’s best with a short run of full-color saddle-stitched zines on beautiful 100lb matte book weight paper stock. We added a belly-band as a finishing touch, see them here.
We have the resources to produce books, portfolios, zines, newsletters and just about any other format. Our clientele includes a variety of content creators with different needs – artists, writers, marketers, educators and others. Chances are we have a solution that fits your particular needs and we can produce a printed piece that will make you look great.
