Are you looking for a reliable, quality, short run printer? These six all come highly recommended by my colleagues at the Association of Personal Historians.
I haven’t used any of these printers and can’t vouch for them. So make sure to use due diligence before making a selection.
If you have other printers that you’ve had a good experience with, let me know. I’ll add their names to a future list.
“In 2010 a book is no longer just a book. A book is a paperback, a hardcover, or, of course, an ebook. It needs to be in the form the reader wants it, when the reader wants it. As a publisher you see opportunity in this epochal change. As BookMobile, we see the vision we created in the ’90s being realized.”
Custom Museum Publishing
“Custom Museum Publishing specializes in the creative design, production and printing of full-color books, exhibit catalogs and marketing materials for artists, galleries, museums and historical societies. Located in beautiful mid-coast Maine, our newest printing technology makes your showcase-quality products affordable in either small or large quantities.
