A Client Review About Country Press Printing Services

Joseph Coupal - Monday, November 19, 2018
Country Press Printing in Boston, MA

We chose Country Press because it is an hour drive from us and in fairly close proximity to where we live as I thought I would have to go in and talk to them several times. I was dubious of other places that never had a live person answer their phone or whose calls went to a call center. I googled "printing" in our zip code and they came up. So I called. Immediately, I found a difference in the way they do business. But do not let their zip code or yours deter you from having them do your printing!! It doesn't matter!! I never set foot in their plant.

They also were reasonably priced. They answered their phones, even if I called 3x in one day! [No caller ID screening with them. if they were open for business they answered their phone!] They developed a bond of trust with us with their honest, open and clear communication. If Mike was going to go away for a week and not be available, he'd say so. There was no black hole he fell into while we were anxiously waiting for a returned call or email They were responsive each and every time. Mike almost always answered the phone and he was right on target w/our work. If he couldn't give me an answer right away, he said he'd get back to me, and he always did within the time frame he said it would take him to give me an answer. Sometimes it was immediate, sometimes he had to refer to my doc. Sometimes he asked to speak to an IT person because that's not my skill set and sometimes I didn't know what he was requesting of me or I didn't know how to send it according to his specs.

Other printers sent me a copy of their finished product for me to review. So when I asked Mike if he could mail me a few samples of their work he said, "Send me your manuscript! I'll give you a sample of yours!!" WOW! And he did. A sample of our finished product, from cover to cover. It took us time to figure out what our front and back cover would look like and Mike said that was OK to work on that and get back to him. We weren't ready at that point with a finished product and were in the fact finding stage. So we did our 'homework' and got back to him. It made sense to see a sample copy of our finished product rather than someone else's.

He wanted to give us a copy as near to perfect of the finished product as possible. They're no rush job to get you done and out of their hair!! But when we considered it finally done on our end, we had edited and reviewed the sample copy, made necessary corrections, they printed 'final copies' and sent it out immediately. They take pride in their work and their customer's satisfaction. When the boxes arrived, we knew w/confidence it would be perfect.

Mike tweaked our doc to make sure everything was centered and the photos clear and the layout what was we wanted. Their recommendations, knowledge and direction were priceless. We had visions of our finished product and Mike would recommend a different font or a different finished size. We always deferred to him and we were happy, happy, happy!

We never stepped foot into their plant and our printing came out perfect! We did all our business over the phone and via internet. Delivery was immediate. Doesn't matter where you live! Brooksey made sure our delivery arrived in a timely manner to meet our deadline! His British accent and jovial tone always set us at ease and that what we wanted was possible and Country Press would take care of it. When Mike answered the phone, I recognized his voice immediately, and I knew that whatever my question was, it would be solved with their know-how.

Mike and Brooksey are amazing, thorough, precise, and on the ball! No question is too difficult, no job too large or too small, and they are patient! Their work is stellar, flawless. Look no further!!

Joseph Coupal - Friday, November 02, 2018
Country Press Self-publishing in Boston, MA

There are many advantages to self publishers by book printing on demand.

Self-publishing is changing traditional publishing. But, print-on-demand services (POD) are allowing all writers to become published authors. Here are some of the obvious reasons why:

The out-of-pocket cost of printing one book at a time is less expensive than a printing a huge book run.

In years past, many authors had only one option at traditional publishing houses. Spending $5,000, $10,000, or more for a few thousand or more copies of their edited and published manuscript. Too often, all of these copies are not all used. Digital book publishing and print on demand have reduced the cost of printing a book.

Author Control

Print on Demand is not just for authors who can’t find a publisher. For many authors it is a matter of expediency.

There are many advantages of print on demand including author control and affordability. Many authors are jumping onto POD publishing as a low-cost, low-labor way to turn their books into profit.

Benefits of Short Run Book Printing

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 26, 2018
Country Press Short Run Book Printer in Boston, MA

Publishers and authors can run into budgeting problems or time constraints. In fact, many first-time self published authors do not have the extra capital for publishing a large quantity of books. Or maybe self-publishers don’t want to pay for over-the-top book marketing, and want to market their book on their own. Short run book printing can help with a tight budget.


Marketing is essential for reaching readers and getting the book out there. But marketing can be expensive. Authors don’t need 1000’s of books the first time around, which means that bulk book printing isn’t useful. Short run printing can allow authors to maximize their marketing dollars while printing only the amount of books they need.

Less Expensive

Short run book printing allows authors and publishers to print only the amount of books they need anywhere from 11 to 5000! Though the price per book may be higher, up-front expense will be less because a smaller amount of books are printed.

Get books faster

With short run book printing books are always completed faster. Short runs allow authors to get the books they need right away.

Greener choice

Every book not uses is money thrown away. With short run printing only get the books you need and want. Save money by only printing the books you need, when you need them.

What is the Perfect Binding Method for Thick Books

Joseph Coupal - Friday, October 19, 2018
Country Press bound galleys in Newton, MA

Very thick books cannot be bound securely by stapling or fastened using saddle-stitch. But there is a perfect bound book method that works perfectly for book binding for projects with up to 700 printed pages.

Commonly used for thick textbooks, brochures and magazines, a perfect binding uses strong but flexible adhesives to bind pages together along the spine for a smooth and stylish output. This adhesive is more tolerant to varying temperatures and is non-brittle. This means thicker books can open flatter without breaking the spine which causes pages to fall out. This binding method requires 7mm safe area at the edge of the spine of the first and last page including inside front and back cover page. The cover is then bent 7mm from the spine to make a joint that secures the glued border.

Perfect bound books present a professional look perfect for displays and stacking. Additionally, this flexible adhesive binding is affordable. For publishing a travel or fashion magazine or a glossy textbook or manual, contact Country Press Printing. With perfect book binding, for all types of manuscripts, book projects can be delivered in no time at the best price.
