Decided on a hard binding?  When working with a new printer or publisher, if the quoted price seems “to good to be true”, it may be.  Double check with the as to why the price is so much lower.  Items that may effect hard binding price include type of binding (oversewn, smythe, case bound, etc.), what optional steps are not included (header/footer bands, rounding, etc.), type of cover stock, thickness of binding boards, etc.
