From consulting on your initial idea all the way through shipping and delivery, we can help you along the way
Here are our services
It’s useful to get us involved at the very earliest stages of your project, because you can take advantage of our expertise in creating the book you envision.
Very experienced designers appreciate our help coming up with ways to produce industrially whatever they dream up, including some very unusual effects. You can see some examples by clicking on “projects.”
You can count on us to help avoid production pitfalls. Our advice about papers, formats, binding styles, and special elements will help you get the results you had in mind.
Including us early will give you the advantage of our expertise in how to create a beautiful book, expediently, economically, and always with an eye to the finest quality.
We have been part of many very successful Kickstarter projects. We know what information you need to launch a good campaign, and can help you get ready with all the numbers you will need. We have experience too in the demands for scheduling and fulfillment, and can help you organize worldwide shipment of copies sent out individually. Here too, our expertise helps from start to finish.
This step takes you from receipt of your initial files to plates ready to go on press.
The important end result: plates made directly from files of color separations that faithfully reproduce your originals, whether you are working on a catalogue for a museum show, a book of art photography, a cookbook, a children’s book, or a catalogue of products you want to sell. We are well-known both for fine colour reproductions and black-and-white images (whether reproduced in two colours, three or four).
Our Kodak system ensures that the entire process, from digital proofing to making plates directly from the files, is calibrated for the paper and press the book will eventually print on, guaranteeing seamless workflow and reliable results.
Offset presses, in two sizes, offer both traditional offset printing and u.v. printing. We update our presses constantly, and all work goes through scrupulous quality control of the process from plate-making to sending printed sheets to the bindery.
Our network of associates provides printing on all manner of surfaces, allowing us to offer you all sorts of effects, from silkscreening to laser incision.
Our work ranges from the smallest book to extra-large tomes, from the simplest paperback to the most complex collectors’ editions, from tiny print runs of rarefied deluxe editions, to huge print runs of bestsellers requiring the fastest turnarounds.
Since the preponderance of our work is for customers outside of Italy, we have long-established trade channels to get books from the factory right into our customers’ hands by sea, air, or truck. We also can help you send out copies individually to sponsors of your crowd-funding campaign.
