More than ink on paper
Much more, actually. How ink is laid down, paper stock, black and white versus color, page size, cover specs, binding, etc., all of these play a role in bringing your book to life. Our expertise helps you through the process from file prep and upload through proof approval, printing, binding and delivery fulfillment. We’re here to advise you and inform you every step of the way.
Spectra offers ideal solutions for publishers and companies that are looking to do Print on Demand (POD) or smaller book runs.

Custom Book Printing
Judging a book by its cover may be an unfavorable stereotype, but if you are looking to have your book taken seriously, it is necessary to assume that type of judgment will occur! Custom book printing from Spectra opens up the opportunity for your book to be bound between two beautiful covers that appropriately reflect its content.
Our in-house print facility at Spectra is the ideal resource for your book printing project. You may be putting together a history of your company to commemorate a milestone, compiling a large amount of information in a convenient package, or publishing the next novel to go viral. Whatever your project, Spectra is the third-party partner to make your custom book printing a success.
Owners Manual Printing
Your product may require some explanation for the end user, but owners manual printing most likely is not within your company’s area of expertise. The quality of your manual has a surprising effect on whether your customers open it up and use your product successfully or whether they overlook it completely. With Spectra as your third-party manual printing partner, you can choose the paper, ink, and binding that are perfect for your project and enjoy the expertise and technology within our print facility.

With specialty printing techniques, full color digital printing capability, and an extensive knowledge of the field, our experts at Spectra are the perfect consultants to assist with your custom booklet printing needs.
