Title Set Up Fee Special – $25.00 Value

If publishing in quantity, the flat title set up fee, applied to all orders, doesn’t alter overall costs that much. However with today’s ultra small publishing, it can add up to $25.00 or more per book. With this special, wave the set up fee for projects:

  • Binding in any soft cover, at any quantity.
  • Printing-only projects – unbound book blocks shipped or delivered – in any quantity.
  • Binding at least 25 books in hard cover – color or standard.
