Book Printing


Looking for a printer for your book – we’ve been printing books for over 40 years and have the know-how to get the job done on time and within budget. We have the equipment for printing and binding book in-house so we are able to control cost and quality throughout the entire production process.

Additionally besides printing and binding your book, we can also help with other services. Just need a cover design – we can do it. Need an ISBN number or Library of Congress Number- we can provide them. Whatever you need we can make your book happen.

Every book printing project is unique. Some authors come to us with their files print ready and just need it printed and bound. Others might need a cover design and maybe some formatting for press. Lakeside Press strives to meet each client wherever they are with their book and to make the process of production as smooth as possible.

Most books are printed on 50#, 60# or 70# uncoated book paper. We use a white, non-sulphate, non yellowing, high quality paper. We also have available coated, colored and textured papers for specialty projects.

When it comes to perfect binding, there are only two options as far as adhesive choices are concerned; EVA and PUR. EVA glue is the standard glue that is used for most soft cover perfect bound books. Specialty coated paper require a most expensive PUR glue process. Here at Lakeside Press we have the capabilities to provide both glue options.



What programs or file formats do you accept?

High resolutions (300 dpi) pdf’s are the best option. This ensures your fonts, layout and photos stay where you want them.

Can I use the art on my website for my book cover?

If there was a high resolution version of your artwork that was originally created for print and was later turned into web ready graphics, then there’s a good chance that we can use the original art. However, if the only version of your art was originally created for your website, then it is less likely that we can use it for printed material. Unfortunately, web design requires only one fourth of the resolution required for high quality printing and as is often the case, no consideration is given to print design when a website is created.

What is bleed?

We print your product on oversized sheets that get trimmed down after binding, we require that the printed image extends beyond the edge of the trim size by 1/8″. That extra 1/8″ is what we refer to as bleed and it is used to ensure that no unprinted portion of the sheet is showing on the finished book.


Writing a book is hard work! Having it printed shouldn’t be. Take advantage of our years of printing and binding experience, and we’ll walk you through the process.
