Digital book printing is ideal for Kickstarter print runs of up to 2,000 copies, and Bookmobile is the only short-run digital book printer that provides a wide range of options such as flexible trim sizes, color inserts, foil stamping on paperback covers, debossing, embossing, translucent vellum dust jackets or inserts, end sheets for paperbacks, French flaps, and more. See our Gallery for a sampling of the incredible variety we offer.
Bookmobile began as a design and typesetting firm working with distinguished publishers such as Graywolf Press and University of Minnesota Press. Our Comprehensive Quality Check services are based on our 33 years of experience on the production line, ensuring that every detail is right. When quality, cost, and schedule are paramount, museums, galleries, artists, university presses, and literary presses choose Bookmobile.
Because offset book printing is often best for print runs over 2,000 copies, we’ve also partnered with Friesens, a major North American printer, to provide offset printing to our Kickstarter creator clients.
Fulfilling backer rewards can be a headache—and the more successful the campaign, the bigger the headache! We make it easy to fulfill backer rewards with our own fulfillment and distribution service, Itasca Books, which is right next door to our printshop.
Besides fulfilling backer rewards, we can warehouse books and fulfill orders for books sold online. And while selling to bookstores does not work for every creator and every project, when it does, we can sell your books to bookstores on your behalf.
