Book Printing Production Times Extended

Posted on: October 13th, 2021 by Andrew Verb

book production

Up until the pandemic, our clients relied on our quick turnaround for book printing. Unfortunately, due to global supply chain shortages, our production facilities were forced to dramatically extend our book printing estimates. With the holidays rapidly approaching, we wanted to alert our clients of delays so they can manage their expectations.

The current turnaround times are as indicated below;
‍(Subject to Change)

– 50# paperback book formats are estimated to print in 10 business days.
– 50# hardcover book formats are estimated to print in 15 business days.
– 70# paperback books are estimated to print in 20 business days.
– 70# hardcover books are estimated to print in 25 business days.

Rush and Express service levels are temporarily unavailable.

Right now we are encouraging our clients to think about their holiday orders NOW and contact their Publisher Services consultant for assistance. Supply chain disruptions are impacting almost every industry and the printing industry’s challenge is obtaining paper stock. It is very important to us that we exceed our client’s expectations so please factor in this delay when considering printing your books.
