Hello!

I was just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for book printers?
I want to print a coffee table book of my photography so looking at options.
Would like a good value place, but obviously want to have good quality printing.

Thanks

There are reviews of a couple of book-publishing services on this site: Pikto Books: An On-Demand Book Service and Private Photographic Book Publishing: Producing Your Own Book.

If you own Aperture, you might give their book module a try. Pretty affordable and great quality.

I've found Blurb to be pretty decent.

Thanks for the replies, the problem with all the on demand ones is they are expensive, even at 1000 print runs from the quotes I have got.
What I'm looking for is a company that doesn't do small runs but a good price.
The book I want to print is 250 pages so blurb etc just aren't cost effective and no one would pay $200 for a book.

This is a couple of years old but may be worth reading.  Cost is always an issue with photo books.  One option is to 'print' a .pdf version for tablets and sell them for a much lower cost, in addition to the paper version.

Sumo, anyone? Investigate Taschen's site and be surprised how much people are willing to pay for someting they want.

I looked at a small book Charlie Cramer made using Magcloud and must say that I was impressed. This was no coffee table book, but the color was very good.  Magcloud books are quite reasonably priced.
