Pros and Cons printing in China

Printing in China can be slightly cheaper than printing in Europe. But, it is essential to keep an eye on the exchange rate of the Yuan. Subsequently, productions that involve a lot of human labor are interesting to print in China. Think of unique productions, full-color books, special wishes (such as having a CD or DVD inserted or a bookmark). Printing companies in China are also able to print high-quality books. Printing in China can be interesting, but beware! Customs can impose additional taxes. And do you need books quickly? Then printing is not an option in China. It can take up to three months for the sea container with your books to arrive. And then the environment. Not all printers in China take the environment equally into account. The environmental level in Europe is many times higher than in China.


Pros and Cons printing in Europe

The majority of book printers that you find in the USA are digital printers. While digital printing offers an excellent solution for low volumes and fast delivery, the cost quickly increases if you want to print more than 200 copies. Many large publishers nowadays print their books in Europe. The main reason for printing in Europe is that you can get high quality printed books at a competitive price. Also, there are many environmentally certified printing companies to be found in Europe. Therefore, printing your book has less impact on the environment. Finally, Europe’s culture is comparable to that of the United States, and that ensures that working with your contacts is easy and fluid.

  • How long is the delivery time for books?

    As you might have guessed… it depends! The delivery time of your book depends on several factors. What are you hoping for in terms of book design? What type of paper or finishing do you want? As a general rule:

    • Hardcover or softcover books without special binding or finishing can be printed within 1 to 2 weeks.
    • Do you have additional preferences? For example, would you like a foil print or UV spot finish at an affordable price? Then we can deliver your books within 3 to 4 weeks.
    • If you want a large print run (>3,000 books), it’s a good idea to purchase paper. It’s a more cost-effective option, and delivery will take about 5 or 6 weeks.

    Call us or request a quote and we can give you a better estimate of expected delivery times.

  • What can I expect in terms of quality and colorfast printing?

    We only print books on modern printing machines, and work exclusively with A-label paper. These standards ensure the highest possible end result for your books. Obviously, colorfast printing is also a high priority. We can produce color proofs to show you the expected color result before the final print run. We do not start the printing process until everyone is satisfied.

  • I have special requirements for my book. What are my options?

    Each book is unique and everyone has their own requirements in terms of specifications, packaging and delivery. Exceptions are our specialty! We have a wide range of different types of machines at our dedicated production locations that are designed to handle exceptions. So we’re happy to accept your challenge!

  • Can you help with the layout of the print files?

    Yes, we certainly can. Our design department has more than 25 years of experience in design and DTP. If you are interested, please let us know and we will be happy to discuss your options and send you a personalized quote.

  • How can your prices be so competitive?
