AKRON, OH, February 25, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- 48 Hour Books, an independent book printer in Akron, Ohio, is now offering foil-stamped book covers, enabling self-published authors to produce books as beautiful and eye-catching as the commercial publishing houses. The first in the industry to offer this premium, 48 Hour Books is blurring the line between commercial- and self-publishing - and at a price that won't break the bank.
There's no doubt about it: self-publishing is on the rise. Today, writers are more empowered than ever before to publish and distribute their work - even without a traditional publishing house. The "indie publishing" revolution is giving voice to authors who otherwise may have been silenced.
With the spread of the internet, authors have been able to easily and inexpensively produce professional-grade copies of their work through online book printers. However, a glance through any bookstore shows that nearly all commercially-published bestsellers have an element that is missing from self-published books: foil-stamped book covers. Up and down the New Release aisles, there are names and titles embossed with glossy eye-catching foil. While self-published books may rival these bestsellers in terms of content, print, and binding quality, they have never been available with foil-stamping ... until now. A pioneer in the industry, 48 Hour Books
is raising the bar among online book printers, striving to create a level playing field for commercial- and self-published works.
Foil-stamping only adds 4 days to the turnaround time, so authors usually receive their foil-stamped books sooner than they would receive regular books from other sources. That's no surprise, since 48 Hour Books is already the industry's fastest book printer. Their standard turnaround? It's in their name.
By adding a foil-stamping and embossing department, 48 Hour Books combines the efficiencies and precision of today's high tech digital presses with the quality and craftsmanship of old-fashioned letterpresses from a bygone era, offering options that were previously unavailable to today's self-publishers. Blazing a trail for self-publishers everywhere, 48 Hour Books is leaving their mark on this growing industry. A mark that is sure to be foil-stamped.
Foil-stamping is available on any binding style: paperbacks, hard covers, or coil bound books. Their website is 48HourBooks.com. A short video (less than one minute long) is available here: http://youtu.be/t1L5Xv5O9PU
48 Hour Books is the fastest book printer in the industry ... 2 days is their standard turnaround, and next-day and same-day service is also available. They offer help along the way, and even answer their phones! They give 25 free books on orders of 100 or more.
