Kailua-Kona, HI (PRWEB) February 1, 2006 -- The printing company On the Mark is offering a practical guide that discusses questions and offers solutions to printing books offshore. The guide entitled, “Printing Books Offshore: Which Projects Qualify?,” is available at no cost, to companies who are looking to outsource their print projects overseas.
Here are some of the issues that are covered:
· Binding is everything
· Do I need a million pages?
· One, four or eight colors?
· Closures - make them magnetic
· Creative allure - the power of wow
· Make it useful - tabs, pockets
· Sheetfed vs. web
· Pre-made scrapbooks - anything's possible
· Custom binders and offshore = Match made in heaven
· Which projects don't qualify?
· Final word: Save big - create big!
Almost every day On the Mark Printing has clients asking them to print their book projects overseas. Offshoring your print jobs has turned into the buzz of the industry. It almost seems that printing locally has gone out of fashion. But does it always make financial sense to outsource? Especially when it comes to the more costly book printing jobs? "Not necessarily." says Mark Vierra, president of On the Mark Printing.
Here are some of the questions to determine if your offshore book project is viable include:
- Does it have a spiral or wire-o binding?
- Is it hardcover?
- Does it have tabs or pockets?
- What is the size of the book?
- What will the final quantity be?
Using this free guide will help you make an educated decision and save your company time and money. "Sometimes," added Vierra, "we will actually send clients away because their print job should be done locally. But when it does make sense to offshore a book project, the benefits and savings can be astounding".
The guide can be downloaded free of charge from the On the Mark web site:
