Having been a graphic design professional for the past twenty years, I’ve worked with a lot of printers. And when I started this new journey of being a comic book creator, I made it one of my missions to find the best printer for self-published comics. Well…I found two! And they even had better prices than the usual comic book printing suspects!
I was able to print my perfect-bound, 72-page trade SCIFIES GREATEST HITS for $5 each, and my 24-page MEN FROM DARPA comics for under $1 each. All in full-color! And not just that, it was a month before New York Comic Con and both companies got my books to me with plenty of time!
Here are the links to both printers:
ALTA-GRAPHICS printed my Trade Paper Back, SCIFIES GREATEST HITS for $5.01 per copy. That’s 72 full-color pages, perfect bound! At that price, my books were at 6 x 9 rather than the standard comic book size, but they can do that too. http://digital-book-printing.alta-graphics.com/book-printing-products/soft-cover-paperback.html
OVERNIGHT PRINTS did my MEN FROM DARPA series for ¢.95 each! It was at 5.5 x 8.5 but in full-color. They can also do 8.5 x 11 but not 6.125 x 10 as far as I can tell. http://www.overnightprints.com/booklets
Hope you find these resources useful. Use them together and use them in peace! And tell them Ramon Gil sent you!
