Electronic Magazine – September 2014 v13#9: Production Thursday, Sep 4 2014 

With GCI new base set-up fee of $25.00, don’t forget that one easy way to reduce the cost per book is to order more books. If you publish 25 books, the set-up cost adds $1 per book, if you order 250 books the per book share of the set up fee is only a dime ($.10). While the set up fee is a flat rate, it divides into the quantity for a per book share. Additionally, as your publishing gets larger, you’ll save on printing and binding as bulk discounts are realized.

Publishing Prices Update Monday, Feb 23 2009 

    Small run publishing fees have had the following changes:

    • Manuscript check has changed from a flat $10.00 to $20.00 for up to 300 pages. Spot checking is still available at $10.00.
    • For full color bindings, we are instigating a design deposit. If a camera ready file doesn’t need any work during production, it will be applied toward the balance or refunded. If adjustments are necessary, the deposit will be used.

    • For ultra-small run soft bindings (less than 100), a setup fee may apply. This used to be $125.00. we are pleased to announce that most will now only be $75.00. If we can group projects, we will do so and return the fee to you.

Book Manufacturing Concepts

Most printer/publishers have the capabilities to print by many methods, we offer quality offset printing from camera ready copy, as it is the most cost-effective approach to a permanent ink printed book. Due to set-up costs, we must limit our smallest run to 100 books. With our 33 years experience, it is just recently that we have found what we feel is a viable alternative.  Always make sure companies you approach to publish define their method of reproduction if you are interested in your work standing the test of time.  It is amazing to us how many copy machines and their out-put are being sold as “printed”.
