$979 PACKAGES | BookPrint

$979+gst PACKAGES FOR BOOK PRINTING AND SELF PUBLISHING

Do you have a minimum order quantity?

No, but we have a $979+gst minimum spend for new customers. The minimum spend can be a combination of design and printing or just printing or just design. After your first order, we are happy to help you with reprints with a cost as low as $500.

When Timmy first started BookPrint in his Dad’s garage, the minimum order was 25 units. This was because he used to outsource binding of the books to trade binders and couldn’t afford to do that with tiny jobs. After we grew the business and brought our binding in-house (using in our opinion the best short-run binding machine in the country), we started to do one-off jobs and lots of small jobs.

However, we ran into some trouble from a money point of view because we operate our business with a high level of customer service – which doesn’t work with low-value jobs. We enjoy being able to hand hold customers if they need it, or have great banter if they don’t need hand holding. But. When we have long conversations and spend a lot of time helping someone who is printing one book for their lover – we lose money. So for purely financial reasons we had to be honest with ourselves and say, “sorry we just can’t afford to do jobs for less than $979+gst – or it would force us to change our business model from high service to just banging jobs out”. I hope you understand.

We would love to help. If you have a small job, check out our $979+gst packages which offer great value – and will ensure your small project is a great book.
