Our primary service is book printing using digital technology—a technology in which a digital image is applied directly to the page, just as your home printer applies an image to the page. Qualimage uses the latest equipment to ensure fast, accurate, high-quality printing in both black and white and color. We also offer offset printing, which is still a viable option in cases where large quantities of books are needed. In offset printing, an image is inked, transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket, and then transferred to the page. Although this website is designed for digital book publishing, we’ll be sure to guide you if offset printing would be a better option for your project.
We provide a complete range of bookbinding for paperbacks (perfect binding), spiral binding, wire-O binding, saddle stitch, and more. Hardcover books are by particular order; please call for a quote. See our Design Guide for descriptions of each binding style.
A book’s cover can add immeasurable appeal to its presence on the shelf. There are three ways to handle the cover design:
Design the front and back covers yourself; we will design the spine without extra charge, and you will have the opportunity to review it when you are examining the proof sent to you, or
As part of the ‘File Upload’ process, you will have the chance to purchase one of these services:
Our Cover Design Package: One of our designers will work with you to create the perfect cover for your book for a package price of $99. Our designer will contact you to learn more about what you are envisioning for your book cover and prepare the first proof for your review. After you provide input on that proof, the designer will modify the cover according to your feedback and then send you a second proof and, if necessary, a third proof. (If additional changes are needed beyond a third proof, the additional time worked will be charged at our hourly rate of $85. We will let you know before incurring any charges beyond the $99.)
By-the-Hour Cover Design Services: If you have already designed your cover and need a little help finalizing it, we will be happy to assist you at our rate of $85/hour.
Designing the inside of a book depends heavily on how the book will be used. Depending on the project, you may need to carefully consider font choices, table of contents, layout, chapter headings, running headers on each page, copyright page. Consider the different designs you would expect for an instructional manual, a cookbook, a photo album, a novel or nonfiction book, and so on. There are two ways to handle the interior book design:
Design the book interior yourself.
If your book layout requires more professional polish than you can give it, let our designers help. You will have an opportunity during the ‘File Upload’ process to ask for assistance with your book’s interior design $85/hour.
