About Bound Galleys
For bound galleys, as for our other printing services, Bookmobile emphasizes speed, efficiency, quality, and value.
Clients receive galleys of superb quality, but galleys are allowed a 1/8” tolerance. Our state-of-the-art printers produce clean, high-resolution galley pages on white, natural, or recycled paper stock.
Unless clients specify otherwise, Bookmobile assumes that proofs are unnecessary.
Turnaround for bound galleys is five to seven business days for clean, trouble-free files with black-and-white interiors and no proofs.
