Bookmasters' new inkjet technology

With so many book printers out there, why choose Bookmasters?

Located in a 230,000 square-foot facility in Ashland, Ohio, we specialize in high quality book printing and book binding. We also pay personal attention to you and your projects, are serious about on-time delivery, and offer competitive pricing.

If you are looking for the best book printer, you may find that Bookmasters may not always be your least expensive option for book printing. However, our quality is unbeatable, we stand by our work, and are humbled by the compliments we've received from our publishing partners.

One of our most popular book printing services is short-run digital book printing: typically great for print runs from 100 to 1,000 copies. With our state-of-the-art presses and bindery equipment (including our recent inkjet printing investment, which made Bookmasters only the second U.S. book manufacturer to offer the Canon Océ VarioPrint i300 (with ColorGrip) color sheet fed inkjet press), we can quickly produce books in 1 to 5-color (both text and covers) in a variety of bindings (see a detailed list of book binding options below).

For easy and affordable inventory replenishment, Bookmasters offers print-on-demand (POD) services to publishers and authors that meet certain thresholds. Criteria for participating in our book print on demand program may include the total number of titles in your publishing program, demonstrated sales activity, and/or other similar factors.

For those who need a book printer to produce exceptionally high quality color books or print runs up to 50,000 copies, Bookmasters also has offset book printing.

Environmental Commitment

Bookmasters has a comprehensive recycling program, uses biodegradable inks and chemistry, and contracts with FSC (Forest Stewardship Council)-certified paper mills. We also offer 10%, 30%, and 100% post-consumer waste papers for manufacturing.

There are no components in our book manufacturing process where lead or phthalates are added or present above the RoHS limits as prescribed in the directive and the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) 2008.


As a leading U.S. book printer, Bookmasters has invested in the equipment our publishers and authors need so they can access all of the book printing services they need in one location.
