Hey all,

I'm looing for a printer who can do both books and cards and are generally reasonably priced for a run of 1000 (I know it'll probably still be pricey). I'm just looking for some leads. I'm looking for somewhere preferably on the east coast of the US :)

Actually, I was thinking of doing on demand book printing at first but the cards are an issue. If anyone knows of an on demand card printing service that would be sweet.

www.qpp.com for the cards, I don't know if they do books. they are in China, but you get some great prices on your cards. Minimum run is 2000 but it will probably be cheaper to do 2000 in China than 1000 in the U.S.

I have not come acrossed this company before, thanks!, looks like it might come in handy down the road.

And taking a quick look at the site, it seems they might have a "book" option. Seems they call it "Manual" and it is listed under the "Packaging Products" section of the site.

Their ability to produce what you want may depend on your actual requirements. Do you want a hard bound book (also called case bound or burst bound), or a soft cover. Soft covers also come in many types, if you want something that is folded over and stappled in the middle (like a magazine), that is usually called saddle stitched. You can also get spiral bound or other types of low end bindings. If you're thinking about a paper back like you buy in a store, we call those perfect bound (not sure what else they may be called).

Hope that helps, best of luck!

My good friend Aldo over at Wingnut Games used them for his Cargo boardgame. drop him a line if you want to know anymore about the company. His e-mail is: aldo@wingnutgames.com
