Bookmasters’ expertise in the U.S. and Canadian scholarly markets makes them an essential partner for us. We rely on their experienced sales personnel along with their combined distribution and print services to grow our business in North America. As scholarly markets grow more complex and competitive it is important to have partner with the facility to capitalise on opportunities as quickly as they emerge and Bookmasters is able to do just that."

Having moved to print on demand for much of our backlist and frontlist book titles; Emerald Publishing was looking for a reliable partner for our key U.S. market. We started working with Bookmasters in March 2017 and the experience has been a really successful one for us and it makes us wonder why we did not go down this route earlier! The entire team is professional and experienced and they are happy to share their knowledge and expertise to make our process more streamlined. The quality of workmanship is first class and they always work to schedule, even when we give them very little lead time! If you are looking for excellent, affordable quality then look no further than Bookmasters."

I just experienced what can only be described as an "exceeding my expectations" journey with your organization and I wanted to share it with you. As an author, I have scheduled appearances to make and hoped that my second series of books (The Great Rescue) would be available for my upcoming "tour." I know this had to put a lot of pressure on many different departments within your organization and although no promises were made, from past experiences in working with Bookmasters I knew that everyone was going to do all they could to meet my needs. Things were going along smoothly until one of your technicians noticed a defect on the front cover of one of the books (something my graphic designer nor I caught). I was so appreciative for this discovery and yet I knew this delay would put additional pressure on other departments to stay on schedule. The importance of maintaining the production schedule increased exponentially when I learned that a group of 9 guys from my church, who wanted to "retreat" at my home, volunteered to bring the 4,800 books up one and one-half flights of stairs for me – if the books could be delivered in time for their arrival. Well, everyone at Bookmasters made it happen! Beginning with Shelley S. (who is my "go-to" person), and Lee Ann W. (who is my "keep calm, Rick – we can make this happen" person), to Pre-Flight who got my files ready for my review in record time, to the technician that saved the day, to the Production team who printed all 4,800 books on a near-impossible schedule, to the shipping department who got the books out the door on the same day they finished printing – and arrived at my home on the next business day. I’m sure there were others that were equally involved in this success story that I’m unaware of, but please know that my gratitude extends to them as well. Thank you for fielding such an awesome team. I chose to use Bookmasters after reading the book, The Well-Fed Self-Publisher by Dan Poynter. He recommended Bookmasters and I’ve never been disappointed by taking his advice.”

We have produced several books in collaboration with Bookmasters and in each case our clients have been very pleased. Our most recent book – Tough Man, Tender Chicken – the bio of Frank Perdue, printed by Bookmasters is being well received by our clients. We love the bright colors in the cover, the color insert of photos and the reproduction of the black and white photos. We appreciate the high quality of your work throughout the entire process and your attention to detail. Bookmasters is a quality company and we highly recommend it to authors, self-publishers and publishing companies.”

A huge thanks for Bookmasters for supporting the publication of the Directory. I particularly want to thank you for making the process so seamless (at least on our end!). It was great working with you. I hope we can continue to work together in coming years.”

Brill is a publisher known for its 330+ years of high-quality products, and therefore we are happy to work with Bookmasters since 2016. Since the start, Bookmasters has proven to be an excellent supplier for our POD books in the Americas. Next to the production for the Americas, their collaboration with Baker & Taylor and their PTO program has improved Brill's lead time and decreased our returns significantly. Their willingness to listen to customers and their problem-solving abilities have resulted in improved quality of their products and services. We are sure that with this attitude we will be able to stay on top of industry trends and supply the best quality products for our customers.”

We chose Bookmasters as our distribution partner because of their proven strength in the book market. With more than half of Christian books now being sold outside of traditional sales channels, and thus more and more through the general book trade, we needed a sales and distribution partner that knows the business. Because Bookmasters offers an integrated suite of services, we can work with one company that meets many of our needs, from design and layout, to eBook distribution, to offset and digital printing.“

My printing experience with Bookmasters has been wonderful. From the beginning, you were helpful to me as a first-time author by patiently answering all my many questions. The work was done at a fair price and right on schedule. Even though my book has been out for a year, you are still gracious about answering my questions. I would recommend Bookmasters to anyone and have already done so to several authors I know.”

— Sheryl Buckley, author, Mortal Dilemmas

Thank you for making my hopes a reality. I know you keep very busy with the nuts and bolts of getting things done – the litany of mundane tasks that make up a day in the publishing world – but please know your contributions are of immense importance to me, and surely to many others. I’m certain working with authors can be quite thankless – authors turn in work late, grow steadily more anxious, frequently make impossible demands, and embarrassingly, need to be emotionally coddled. It’s a yeoman’s work no doubt. But for authors and those of us who hope to become authors, you are the midwives and nurses of our dreams. Thank you for keeping that in perspective, for your patience and forbearance.”

— Malik Wilson, author, And So We Remain

We are quite pleased with the services we are getting from Bookmasters. The printing job on our [Camping with the Corps of Engineers] book was excellent, and the sales volume being generated from your offices is simply amazing.”
