Printing machine

In the United States, you see many book printing companies that use digital printers. For books with a small number of copies, this is the right choice. But, for print runs from 400 or more books, a digital printer is certainly not cheaper than offset printing. New Energy Printing has production locations worldwide, each with different machinery and expertise. We can choose between both digital printers as well as offset printing machines. By linking the right production location to the desired specifications and the number of copies needed, we can print much more economically. Also, we print books on the most modern machines that are very efficient. The combination of the right machine with the quality of the machine ensures that we can print books cheaply.

Book specifications

The type of paper, binding, or print run you choose for your book largely determines the cost of printing for your book. A hardcover gives a luxurious look and is perfect for special editions. But the costs of printing are considerably higher than with a paperback. With our years of experience, New Energy Printing can advise which specifications best suit your wishes concerning the emotion that your book should radiate. This way, we ensure that you can print your book in the best and most affordable manner.

Knowledge and Expertise

New Energy printing prints millions of books worldwide each year. Therefore we have an enormous purchasing power that enables us to purchase more efficiently than our competitors. In fact, even other printer companies buy from us because we are cheaper. So our purchasing power allows us to buy materials cheaper and offer a lower price. With our production locations worldwide, we can choose between the best production locations for your book’s specifications and combine this with those locations that still have space left. This way, we can negotiate a better price for you. Depending on the book specifications, we can print a softcover book for as little as 0.68 cents per copy.
