We believe in our pricing so much that we want to show it to you as soon as possible. When you fill out our instant quote form the price of your book will be calculated right in front of you in big, bold numbers. At Steuben Press we believe you shouldn’t have to fill out endless forms, input all your contact information (which we ALL know will result in endless follow-up phone calls and emails), and wait to hear back on what your price will be. Today we all want to have information at our fingertips to make quick, intelligent decisions. Our instant quote calculator will help you choose the best options for your book, and provide you with book pricing immediately to get you started with your project today!
After you’ve tweaked your printing options in the instant quote calculator and have found the quantity and price that works best for you, it’s time to officially get the project started. Using the quote number generated by our calculator, you’ll follow some simple steps to send us the files for your book. At this point you’ll have the option to select additional services like a physical proof copy of your book, help with the cover design or interior layout of your book, or final touches like creating the barcode for your back cover. Our team will analyze your files and double-check it against your instant quote, looking for things like page count, how many pages are in color, and the size of your book. When everything is finalized you will be contacted for payment and book production can begin!
Our staff will pre-flight your files and prepare a proof for your final approval. Depending on the options you select, this proof will either be a high resolution PDF that you download, or a physical copy of your book that comes in the mail. Either way you have the opportunity to review your book one last time before it moves into production. During this phase of development is also where you’ll get to review our work if you’ve hired us to design your cover or layout the interior of your book. Once you are 100% happy with the proof of your book, you will sign off and your book is sent to the printer!
Your book will be scheduled into print production after we receive your final approval. In just a matter of days your files will be converted into a beautiful book ready for you to hold in your hands. Steuben Press operates state of the art digital presses, offering the highest quality color prints with the diversity to handle grayscale images or black and white text. Our bindery operators will be on stand-by to perfect bind or spiral bind your finished book. All book orders are then carefully packed for final shipment to you!
