Book Printing and Production Overview
Gray Dog Press has been providing digital short run soft cover book printing and production to individuals, companies, and other publishers for many years.
We produce high-quality books and we do so at very cost competitive rates. For “pull the trigger and go” projects from your supplied files, we do not have a setup fee. When you send us your files we make and send you a production quality proof copy at no charge. And we ship in whatever manner you choose and charge only actual shipping and container cost.
Our house text paper stock is high-grade, acid-free, FSC Certified in white 50#, 60#, 70# or 80# matte, natural 60#, 70# or 80# matte, and 80# or 100# gloss. Cover stocks are 80# or 100# digital, or 10pt or 12pt C1S. Other papers are available on request. Laminates are available in gloss, soft-touch matte, or smooth matte finish.
Trim sizes can be pretty much anything you want, we do not have any specific requirements. We have produced books sized at 4 X 6, 6 X 6 (which was really cool by the way), and all manner of trade sizes up to 8-1/2 X 11. Depending on the interior paper used, page counts can be as low as 32 and as high as 750.
Based on our knowledge and experience with our materials, processes, and equipment we can provide you with recommendations to get the best look for your books. You, of course, ultimately decide which course to take. And we offer a quality assurance guarantee.
Since each book has its own unique characteristics and page count a “one-size-fits-all” pricing model is nearly impossible to do.
