May, 2014 Electronic Magazine – Computer Tuesday, May 20 2014 

Still thinking in black and white? The days of green and amber monitors are well past, as is unaffordable color computer copies. We live in a color world and while you may not be able to afford a full color printed book, consider using color in your sales items. Always check the price difference between color and black and white (from letterhead and envelopes to flyer and bookmarks) – the margin of savings may not equal the value loss.

Not all hard bindings are created equal. Know the standard options of the publisher:

Standard ALA Oversewn Hard Binding: High Quality, Low Price
Deluxe Hard Binding Information
