I really want color in my book, but I can’t afford it, right?

In your search for a book printer you will come across many companies that offer you a book that is printed in black and white, or a book that is printed in color. The key word in that sentence is OR. With many book printers you will have to make a choice between printing your book all in color or all in black and white. If you choose color, that means you will be charged color rates for pages that have nothing but text printed on them, and worse yet, even pages in your book that are blank. And if your book is 200 pages long, the cost to print it can be pretty steep.

But rest easy, there is a solution! You can have color pages in your book without breaking the bank to pay for it.

In early 2013 I approached Steuben Press on a book project I'd hope to get off the ground. I was referred to them by another business entirely, which I think is a credit to how Steuben Press is seen amongst their competitors. The project was a 120 page, full color art book that came out amazing. They under promised and over delivered a great book which I’m happy to report is already on its third printing. I have and would recommend Steuben Press to my friends and other self-publishers.
