Winnie is a great communicator and will…Winnie is a great communicator and will go the extra mile! Despite the 12 hour time difference, Winnie answered every question that I had promptly and with great professionalism. She is kind and efficient. She listens and offers solutions, if there are any issues. The pricing was reasonable and the print quality exceptional. My children’s storybook has been doing very well and I’ve had several people comment on how impressed they are with it. I am currently working with Winnie again to get more printed. Thank you so much!Brenda Gladman,4 days ago
Exceptional print quality and customer serviceI worked with Ella for two months on my first children's picture book. I started very skeptical because of the great price it felt too good to be true. I ordered 1,000 books, which arrived earlier than expected and in great condition. The printing quality is exceptional, and I have received numerous comments on how the illustrations pop off the pages. I'm already preparing to put in another order of 1,000 books. I am very grateful to have found them and highly recommend anyone to work with them. The quality and cost are significantly better than any print-on-demand service.Francis Coates III,5 days ago

With Highest RecommendationFrom start to finish, working with Winnie was an easy and professional experience. Product AND customer service were both exceptional! Winnie is detail-oriented (very important when partnering with overseas companies!), prompt, and flexible with my schedule and printing needs. Communication was clear and ship dates were exact. There was no compromise on the quality of my book and Winnie made sure to follow up throughout every step of the process. Highly recommended.V Liang,Feb 15, 2024
Excellent customer oriented printers in ChinaI went into the unknown looking for a supplier in China. This company were so helpful from day one- the team were really patient with me on perfecting how my book looked. I was very particular but they were so easy to work with and patient. I trusted them to deliver to me in the UK, duty paid (DDP). I was very worried things may go wrong and I end up with a customs fee to pay. I did not need to worry. This company had dealt with that. Books arrived in perfect condition, wrapped extremely well. I would not hesitate to do business again. If you are looking for printers in China, give this company a chance. I did, and its the best decision I made ❤️AB London,Feb 6, 2024
Super Reliable!I had to get nearly 8,000 customised Diaries printed and shipped to New Zealand. I found BookPrintingChina through google so was a little nervous. But the process was very painless thanks to Winnie and the team. Great communication and super reliable. plus top notch quality.Rob McCorkindale,Feb 2, 2024

Great to work withThey were friendly, prompt and they helped me out with making sure my book was correctly formatted to ensure it was going to look great.

I appreciate to the details that they always put attention to and to remind us. It was a great experience to work with the company, especially Winnie. Will recommend the company to all my friends and will continue printing with you.Avi Nagar,Jan 12, 2024
An incredible first experienceThis was my first experience with BookPrintingChina and I was lucky enough to get Winnie as the person that worked with me from start to finish in printing my children’s picture book, “My New Potty”. Winnie is extremely efficient and attentive to detail with her immediate responses that answered my many questions. Everything happened exactly as she said in terms of timing, making a few corrections to the book set up on the cover, payment, photos and delivery. She made me feel well taken care of, and my 250 books arrived in perfect condition. I had also received a book prior to the printing to okay it, and a video. The other thing I wanted to mention was the quality of the books…the pages were thicker than your average children’s book which I was pleased about, and the color was absolutely true to the original art work. My book designer was also impressed with the quality. I recommend Winnie without reserve and plan to have a long term book printing relationship.Rebecca Bleeecher,Jan 7, 2024
5 Star Superb Quality Book PrintingThis was my first order with Book Printing China and I am very happy I chose them to print my colorful children’s book! The colors were vivid and beautiful – exactly as I wanted them to be – and the paper quality was outstanding. Working with Janice has been a delight from start to finish as she kept me informed every step of the way. The books arrived on time as promised and packed in strong, double boxes for added protection. 5 Stars for their excellent customer service and superb quality printing at the best price!

I could not of been happier with the prompt service and communication with Ella via email. My delivery of my books was fast via shipment through boat. I look forward to continuing doing business with this company and with their helpful and friendly staff.Elisa Emmett,Jan 2, 2024
Thank you Winnie and companyI have been working with Winnie on two book projects; a children's book and accompanying color activity book. I have been extremely happy with BookPrinting China so far. This is my first book project and it's been a learning process with many mistakes. Thankfully Winnie has been very helpful in helping me make corrections and adjustments to the layout, and even had the design guys send me a template for the cover so I could resize it accurately to account for the fold over on a hardcover book. And of course the quality of the books is outstanding. When I got the first batch of coloring books I excitedly open the box and was blown away. I thought "holy crap these look so freaking good; like real coloring books!" They took my idea and novice design and layout and made something that looks as professional as any coloring book you'd find in a store. And not just a dollar store, their much higher quality than that. I'm talk Toys'r'us or Barns and Noble or your trendy little bookstore/coffee shop kind of place where everything is over priced but the owners are friendly older hipsters who remember you and your kids so you get books there instead of Amazon. But I digress... Point is, I highly recommend BookPrinting China. I want to "shop American" but it would have cost me 6-7 times more. As a new author self publishing I just couldn't afford getting the books printed in the States. Thank you Winnie and the rest of the company for helping make this little dream of mine a reality.Erik,Dec 29, 2023

Responsive and patientThis was my first time dealing with a book printer as I printed my book Cruising the Queensland Coast, a guide for yachts. There are technical aspects to printing and the fear of getting things wrong. Measure twice and cut once. Winnie was excellent at all stages with great responsiveness and patience. I went through two proofs as I corrected errors. The final result was great and I have now sold all copies and am doing a new edition.Greg Luck,Dec 12, 2023

Awesome experience with this first time author, thank you so much!This company was professional from start to finish. Winnie was my contact and she was excellent, thorough, and on top of all of the details. I had MANY questions and even became nervous that the company was located overseas at one point, and she talked me through everything, sent me photos, and really took the time to reassure me that I was in safe, legitimate hands. The end product, 1,000 copies of a hardcover children’s book, came our beautiful! I had 100 copies shipped by air (arrived in 5 days) and the remainder by sea, arrived in 30 days almost on the nose, just as described.

And the product quality and shipping to USA was fast and high quality.Scott,Oct 19, 2023

BookPrintingChina does amazing work!Winnie at BookPrintingChina was most helpful in getting 1000 of my Books to Print. I had searched far and wide to find a manufacturer to print high-quality, custom hardcover books at a reasonable price, and Book Printing China delivered. I will definitely be ordering from them again in the future. I couldn't recommend them more! Winnie answered all of my questions extremely quickly and even mailed me a demo copy of my book before we proceeded with the full order. Give them a try!Jesse Balmer,Sep 22, 2023

Our town's history in printWe are a small rural community who wanted our town’s interesting history recorded. It took about 8 years to gather and edit over 100 personal stories and hundreds of photographs. We feared what it might cost. I found Book Printing China through a web search and requested a quote. At this point we were not certain of our requirements. Almost immediately Ella responded with a quote and recommendations. Not having heard of the company we requested two examples of work they had done - soft cover and hardcover. When those samples arrived, we were impressed. Ella was most obliging and informative had kept us informed regarding the dispatch process. Since this was our first book, we were not quite sure of our actual requirements and options and sought quotes for various formats along the way. Ella responded promptly each time. For some these requests may have been annoying, but Ella responded promptly and graciously each time. She sought advice from the expert printing team when she felt it was necessary. Ours was to be an A4, 320 page book, black text and photographs, perfect bound, matt finish colour hard cover. We agreed to proceed and sent the PDF. Ella kept us up to date of the printing and dispatch progress of the first print sample. When that sample arrived, we were impressed with the print, paper and binding quality. We ordered 500 copies. Once printed, Ella sent photos of the packaged book shipment, details of the ship and dates of expected arrival in Melbourne, Australia. Our beautiful books are now being praised, widely read and enjoyed around our nearby towns and much further afield.Julia,Aug 14, 2023

Attention to detail is what matters.My client was very pleased with the results.

Winnie is absolutely amazing at thisWinnie is absolutely amazing at this! The process was smooth and I was helped along with technical aspects of file export as well. Also, Winnie keeps you focused, the process was completed much faster than I would have alone if she wasn't prompting and reminding me along the way. I had children's board books printed and they were completely professional. They looked better than most commercial board books that you find on the market. Colors were true and images were accurate to the digital files.Dan E.,May 19, 2023

Paper Stock and Weight
When printing your own comic book, choosing the right paper is crucial to ensuring that your artwork looks its best. BookPrintingChina provide several kinds of paper options, like glossy art paper, matte art paper and uncoated paper, special paper. Usually, lightweight and natural color uncoated paper is best for black and white comic book printing. Heavier and vivid color coated paper is best for color comic book printing.
There are several factors to consider when selecting paper options, such as weight, finish, and durability.
The weight of the paper refers to its thickness and is measured in grams per square meter (gsm). For comic book printing, a common inner paper weight range is between 80 gsm to 200 gsm. A lighter weight paper may be ideal for a more affordable option, while a heavier weight paper provides a more premium look and feel.
The finish of the paper refers to its texture and appearance. The two most common finishes for custom comic book printing are matte and glossy. A matte finish gives a more subtle and muted look, while a glossy finish provides a vibrant and shiny effect. Consider the style and theme of your comic book when choosing the finish.
Durability is an essential aspect to consider, especially if your comic book will be frequently handled or read. Look for paper options that are acid-free and resistant to tearing and yellowing over time. This ensures that your comic book will maintain its quality and longevity.

Choosing the right size for your comic book is crucial for a professional and visually appealing final product. While there is no standard size for comic books, certain sizes are more commonly used in the industry.
6.625" x 10.25" -This size, also known as the standard comic book size, is widely used by many publishers. It provides ample space for artwork and text and is easily recognizable by comic book enthusiasts.
7" x 10.375" -Slightly larger than the standard size, this option allows for more detailed artwork and larger text. It is often used for graphic novels or special editions.
5.5" x 8.5"- This smaller size is often chosen for independent or self-published comic books. It offers a more compact format and can be more cost-effective for smaller print runs.
Consider the content and style of your comic book when selecting the size. A larger size may work well for intricate illustrations, while a smaller size may be more suitable for a minimalist or experimental approach.

The binding method you choose for your comic book plays a significant role in its functionality and durability. Here are listed some popular binding way for custom comic book printing.
Saddle stitch binding involves folding the pages in half and stapling them along the spine. This method is commonly used for thinner comic books with a page count of 48 or less. It provides a clean and professional finish but may not be suitable for thicker publications.
Perfect binding involves gluing the pages together at the spine and then attaching a cover. This method is ideal for thicker comic books with a higher page count. It offers a sleek and polished look, but the binding may be less flexible than other options.
Case bound involves sewing the pages together at the spine and then gluing on a hard cover. This method is a more high end and durable option for comic books. However, the cost of this binding method is higher than that of perfect binding.
Consider the length, thickness, and overall aesthetic of your comic book when selecting the binding method. Each option has its advantages, so choose the one that best suits your specific needs.
Adding a finish to your comic book can elevate its visual appeal and make it stand out from the crowd. BookPrintingChina offers several popular finishes that can enhance the overall look and feel of your comic.
Lamination is a common choice, providing a protective layer that makes the book resistant to moisture, scratches, and fading. It also adds a subtle sheen to the cover, enhancing the colors and details of the illustrations.
Spot UV is another popular finish that can add a glossy and raised effect to specific areas of the book, such as the title or certain elements on the cover. This technique creates a visually striking contrast and adds a tactile dimension to the book, making it more engaging for readers.
Foil stamping is a luxurious finish that can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your comic book. It involves applying metallic or colored foil to specific areas of the cover or title, creating a visually stunning effect that catches the eye.

Design Artwork tips
Designing artwork for comic book printing requires careful consideration of various factors to achieve the best possible results. Here are some essential tips to keep in mind during the design process:
Resolution: Resolution Ensure that your artwork is of high resolution to maintain clarity and sharpness when printed. A resolution of 300 dots per inch (dpi) is recommended for optimal printing quality.
Color mode: Color Mode When designing your comic book, work in the CMYK color mode rather than RGB. CMYK is the standard color mode for printing and ensures accurate color representation in the final product.
Bleed: Bleed Include a bleed area in your artwork to ensure that there are no white borders or gaps when the comic book is trimmed. Extend any background colors or images beyond the trim line by at least 0.125 inches.
Font sizes: Use appropriate font sizes that are legible when printed. Avoid using fonts that are too small or intricate, as they may become difficult to read in the final product.
Proofreading: Before sending your artwork for printing, thoroughly proofread all text and dialogue to ensure there are no spelling or grammatical errors. It's essential to have a professional-looking final product free of any mistakes.
By following these design tips, you can create artwork that is optimized for high quality comic book printing, resulting in a visually stunning and professionally produced comic book.
Comic book printing is a specialized process that requires careful consideration of various factors, including paper options, size, binding, and artwork design.
