Most Popular Paper

paper thickness

Gloss paper has a shiny and lustrous smooth coated gloss finish. Excellent for making full color printing appear more vibrant.

Matte paper is a dull coated sheet that exhibits low gloss finish. Paper has minimal glare, making it easier to read text.

Uncoated paper is easy to write on and should be used in projects such as a workbook or coloring book.

Softcover vs Self-Cover

Perfect Bound Book printing
Perfect binding booklet printing is single sheets (text weight) paper printed on both sides and collated in page number order, one on top of the other, and gathered into a book block. The spine edge is ground off. The softcover (a thicker cardstock) is placed over and around the book block (interior pages) and attached by the application of a strong yet flexible PUR glue along the binding edge, creating a professional looking square spine that can be printed on.

Softcover

Spiral Bound Book printing
Spiral Binding is more durable than wire-o binding but does not have the professional look of a wire-o bound book. A spiral bound book uses a durable plastic coil which makes it an ideal option for spiral book binding that needs to lie flat and can fold or wrap back around themselves (360 degree) and are continually being referred to. The plastic coil allows for frequent use that not damage the book binding coil. Spiral bound book printing is great for instruction and repair manuals, cookbooks, directories, handbooks, guides, and other reference materials. Spiral binding is excellent for wall calendars and planners can hang flat against the wall.

Softcover

Wire-O Bound Book printing
Wire-O binding is for a more formal use and offers a more professional look than a spiral bound book. A wire-o bound book uses a metal wire. Unlike a perfect bound or saddle-stitched book, the open wire-o bound book will lie flat (180 degrees) for easy reference or they can fold or wrap back around themselves (360 degree) making it easier to handle and lays flat for easy reading while taking up minimal room on a desk or table.
Wire-o binding is an excellent style of binding commonly used for businesses to create professional-looking lay flat documents such as business reports, documents, calendars and other book types. Wire-o binding calendars are one of our most popular products. The pages flip easily and hang flat against the wall. Wall calendars are great for non-profit fundraising programs, promoting business and photography.

How to Write a Cookbook?

Writing a cookbook is more affordable than you think! To write a cookbook, it’s important to define the audience that you want to use your cookbook. For example, is this going to include Vegan recipes only, or easy recipes for kids to learn how to cook? Secondly, you will want to organize your recipes in an order that makes sense. Lots of cookbooks are organized by meal type (for example dinner, soup, dessert). Then you will want to create your layout with vivid and engaging photos. Once your file is created, it’s time to go to PrintingCenterUSA to submit your file and complete your order!

How to Make a Cookbook?

It’s fast, easy, and affordable to print your own custom cookbook with PrintingCenterUSA. First, collect your recipes and choose which one’s you would like to be included in the cookbook. Then, create your print-ready PDF using our FREE downloadable templates or use our easy online Booklet Design Tool. Once your file is created, simply check out from our online design tool or our pricing tool. Click here to learn more on how to create a Print-Ready PDF.

How Many Recipes Do You Need For a Cookbook?

On average, there are 300-400 recipes in a cookbook. However, cookbooks can contain any range of recipes depending on your audience that you are targeting. If you are creating a beginner’s cookbook, it may be better to focus you cookbook on 20-30 really good basic recipes so that you don’t overwhelm your target audience.

Can You Use Other People’s Recipes in a Cookbook?

No. Not only is it just not very nice to take other people’s recipes and pass them off as your own, but it can also get you in legal trouble as well based on copyright laws. The US Copyright office states that “when a recipe or formula is accompanied by substantial literary expression in the form of an explanation or directions, or when there is a combination of recipes, as in a cookbook, there may be basis for copyright protection.”

The process was easy and simple and the product was great! I do come from a printing company background so I'm more familiar with the process and the paper than someone who hasn't had that experience, so that part may be more tricky for some than others. The printing was quick, beautiful and arrived on time!

There were an exasperating string of errors on this order: wrong shipping addresses, wrong amounts to print, wrong shipping costs. Worse, a string of emails & phones calls failed to straighten it out. The latest is that the accounting department re-sent the wrong invoice without checking, after being told the invoice was incorrect. Moreover, I had requested the printer to go lighter on the half-tone. This wasn't done. I'm a long term-customer, always printing the same product. What's going on? Your service was always reliable in the past.

I created a 90 page 8.5" x 11" Family History booklet filled with stories and pictures. I could not be happier with the quality of the product I received from PrintCenter USA. Prior to ordering the booklet I requested and received the free paper sample pack, which was a great help in choosing the right type of paper and cover materials. I was really impressed with the support I received over the phone from the staff at PrintCenterUSA. I will definitely use this company again for my future printing needs.

The quality, price, and customer support team were great. For new publishing customers more support with the proof would have been appreciated. The instructions for the product was for a blank back cover and the insides of the covers and printing of the document continued on these areas. I was new to the proof process and thought the empty pages just were not shown (now I know better). I would think the printing team would have asked us because it was obvious it wasn't intended to have the internal document print to the back cover. That said, lesson learned and we will likely use the company again because of the value, quality, and speed.

As always we never know what you get with online printing, but these guys provided the best template and setup and everything was a breeze! Magazines came out great. It would have been better if the customer service knew what Litho was since they are a printer. Kind of like a mechanic not knowing what an engine is. But aside from the lack of knowledge, all worked out. Cost me extra $100 they didnt explain if you get UV it will change to card stock! So I ended up paying for a useless product that they didn't offer a refund or discount. So take it for what its worth. Good product, could be better sales customer service.

I wanted to like this vendor I recently found, but unfortunately will need to find another one. Main reasons for dissatisfaction are: - Printing quality is very low. The darker colors look faded, making me think they use little ink and that's why the price is low. - One of the packages is missing and no good support on the missing piece. I've been tracking every week, but no good reply. It's been missing almost 4 weeks and I just asked for a refund. I'm not sure if they'll send us a refund.

I had to create a Class Directory for our High School Reunion. The booklets could not have been any nicer. A beautiful, professional job at an extremely reasonable price. They even sent me an email to alert me to low resolution images on the original submitted project. I was then able to edit those images and the final project is excellent! This company is superb.

I became editor of our American Daylily Society Region 6 newsletter almost 3 years ago and started using Printing Center USA to print all our news magazines. We went from being a so-what newsletter to something everyone looks forward to. We were honored at our recent National Convention to receive the Best Newsletter award for 2020. I believe part of the reason everyone likes is the beautiful colors of the photos and nice paper. More and more people are now sending in articles and photos to be published,.

I am so pleased with the quality of the perfectly bound books! I'm an Artist working primarily with India ink. The colors translated to print perfectly. The book looks crisp and professional. I will certainly be a repeat customer! Thank you kindly.
