Country Press Printing - Give A Free Holiday Gift in 30-Seconds or Less

If a friend, relative, or valued service provider has a website, give them the gift of a business Facebook “like” this Holiday season. This act is free and will literally take you 30 seconds or less. By doing so, you help your friend or relative further establish business credibility and trust from an online standpoint.

Why do this? The reason is simple. Facebook “likes” is something that business owners can refer to promote their business popularity and interaction with their clients. It is also a widely accepted conclusion that Facebook “likes” play some role in how a website converts visitors into customers.

So if you know anyone with a website and wish them well in business, take 30-seconds and “like” their business Facebook page. Look for the Facebook logo usually located at the top or bottom of the website’s home page. Then shoot them a quick note saying, “Happy Holidays. I recently “liked” your business Facebook page and wish you continued business success in 2018 and beyond”. It would be a kind gesture and one that cost you nothing other than 30 seconds of your time.

To all our regular readers of this blog, we wish you all Happy Holidays and only the best for 2018 and beyond.

In the past, after authors spent months and even years to finish writing their novels, there then came the decision on the publishing options to choose. There really were not a lot of options. Now, you can consider self-publishing or publishing in a traditional publishing house. These two publishing options have their own advantages. Everyone can create books and novels, while not everyone is accepted for publication. Both require very different budgets and time frames as well. Perhaps self-publishing is the right and satisfying option for some authors. For those interested authors that want to self-publish their books, self-publishing in Newton, MA is available.

What are the perks of self-publishing? Authors have control over the price and content as well as the cover design of the book. Editing, marketing and publicity of the book is also shouldered by the author. However, the author did all the work, and with self publishing, the author will assume all of the profit of releasing their book.

Clear and legible book content is achievable through digital book printing processes. Digital printing can make your self-published book accessible and can deliver illustrations and images that are precise. For more details on self-publishing, contact Country Press, Inc.

Country Press Print-on-demand services in News Port, VA

Print-on-demand services in News Port, VA, sprung out from digital printing technologies adapted by publishers as means to provide cost-effective solutions to authors who don’t have enough resources in publishing their works. Instead of printing stockpiles of books to be stored in warehouses, copies are made only when there is a valid order. The method allows printing of small quantities unlike the traditional method which requires a certain quantity profitable enough to cover high set-up costs.

The academic sector is one area in which the print on demand method is very applicable. This is due to the size of the reading population targeted for publication. In contrast to the general reading public, there is little market demand in the academe. The academic demand may come from a small network of scholars and students sharing research and study articles.

The main publishing center responsible for publishing these scholarly works are the university presses. Most university presses are non-profit and are largely sponsored by their university through subsidies and endowments. A lot of universities have stringent budget cuts. Therefore it is imperative for university presses to minimize loss or at least achieve break-evens in order to sustain economically while maintaining academic excellence. This can only be done by keeping the number of printed output close to the actual demand. With this, the print-on-demand (POD) is indeed the best option for publishing academic work.

Bound galleys function as the closest thing to the authors’ final draft. They are printed for review from prominent editors and proofreaders before being officially published as books. Copies of the book at this stage serve as both evaluation copies and as initial promotional copies.

As evaluation copies, all the writing requirements that make up a successful book are usually met. Before reaching this level, it is normal practice for a book project to pass through numerous checks and consultations in the form of initial drafts and manuscripts. Content at this point may be complete, but bound galleys as advance promotional copies must now emphasize appearance and digital book printing aspects.

Marketing your book involves producing quality bound galleys in Newton, MA. It is at this level where copies of book are bound and presented to simulate as finished products minus the final book cover. High-end digital book printing is the only way to achieve this.

Happy Thanksgiving From Country Press Printing

Happy Thanksgiving From Country Press Printing

It’s Thanksgiving week and a time each year when we reflect upon the blessing within our lives. Today our warmest Thanksgiving wishes go out to all of you, our clients, friends, and neighbors. Along with this note of thanks to you, this week we offer a special Thanksgiving “shout-out” to one of the more unsung Thanksgiving heroes, Sarah Hale. Historians credit Sara Hale as the originator of the Thanksgiving federal holiday.

Sara Hale undertook a 17-year letter writing campaign to make Thanksgiving a national holiday observed in all states. Before Hale, Thanksgiving was not a fixed holiday but rather an informal tradition. Presidents would select a day and make it known that it would be a day of thanksgiving and community. Hale lobbied five separate presidents for a set date until finally her request was granted by president Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln congratulated her tenacity and immortalized the holiday as part of American culture.

So thanks, Sara, for your 17 years of letter writing, for securing our day of Thanks on Thursday, and for your part in creating one of the most warm and celebrated day within our American culture!
