These days, we have access to a myriad of resources for our family and our homeschool. Since the vast majority of those resources are available in digital format, they have become very affordable. Unfortunately, they also have a huge potential for landing in a graveyard of digital files on our computers and never actually getting used. Even if they do get printed, they often are hastily thrown in a 3-ring binder, which is awkward to use, and results in torn, lost pages.
Are you ready to actually use those amazing resources hidden in your files? I am now offering a customizable printing and binding service to help you make use of your PDFs. My printed books are particularly well suited to heavy use items, such as homeschool curriculum, planners, reference books, and more.
Here’s what you get
All my printed books have 24 lb. paper, which holds up to daily use much better than regular copy paper.
I offer full-color, double-sided printing for 20 cents a page.
Files are printed at 8 1/2 by 11 inches.
Each book will automatically be spiral bound with 10 mil laminated covers. You don’t have to pay extra for sturdy covers. They are standard.
If you have purchased one of my planners in the past, you can compare the durability. My customers are pleased to report that the thick covers and paper easily last a year. Imagine how helpful that would be for a child’s daily curriculum?
You may choose to use the title page in the file for your cover, or you can opt for a custom cover. I can design a cover for you with a colored, print background and a title. This is a great choice if you would like to label a child’s schoolbook, for example: Matthew’s Math 4th grade.
Please note that I am not offering a publishing and distributing service. I am simply turning your digital file into a durable, quality physical book for your own use.
How to Order
Once you have decided what file you would like printed and bound, you need to get a page count. If there are extra pages at the front and back, for example, ads, you can subtract those from the total page count. Your quantity at checkout needs to be the total page count you want printed. If you have a 100 page file, you will enter a quantity of 100 for a total of $20. Please remember that this total includes 10 mil covers, full color printing, and binding. If you wish to have a custom cover, please check that box before adding to your cart.
Once you have placed your order, I will send you an email with a link to upload your file to my dropbox account. I want to reassure you that I have full respect for digital ownership rights. I use the file to print your book and then I delete it. I will also ask for any special instructions in the email. Please reply with custom cover instructions, page numbers you want left out, etc. I am accessible to you throughout the process. You aren’t working with a big company, hoping someone will see your requests for help. I fill your order from start to finish and am happy to help you get the book you want.
You can contact me at any time, before or after placing an order by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please reference printing and binding service in the subject line. Thanks!
