I recently published a paperback (a children's stocking filler book). The printer I paid (upfront - yeah, I should know better) said it would take 7-10 working days. It has so far been 17 working days and they haven't even dispatched them yet. I have taken preorders from people wanting them for Christmas, but unless they post them in the next day or two, I won't get them posted out in time. Does anyone know a decent printers that won't cost the earth but will actually print as promised?
Hi, Don't know how many pages but I did somethign similar one year and printed them off as photobooks from foto.com or somewhere similar. I just scanned each page of the book like a photo and set them in sequence. Worked out well but I only made about 5 copies. Think it might have been about 10euro/photobook. Not sure if that's any good to you good luck with it
It's already on Smashwords, I want a paperback version. It's a bit late for this print run, but I have 3 more titles in production, and other authors are writing a further 10 or so titles for the current series which will be 100 titles eventually. I don't want to be stuck with an unreliable printer for future runs, I could do with a company that can turn around simple A6 size books in a week or so, rather than a month or so.
Just chased up my book delivery. Got an unconcerned "oh, yeah, it didn't go..." So they haven't even posted the promised 1/4 of my order (the compromise I agreed so I'd have some hope of at least fulfilling preorders). My "happy place" seems so far away, if I have to call them again I might just go "Hulk". They don't want to see me when I'm angry. Day 19 of the promised "7-10 day turnaround" and counting...
