Digital Printer Recommendations

Post by mestioko » Wed Aug 13, 2008 9:51 pm

Hi All,
I've been looking at different POD printers to print my 24-page comic book through. I've looked into Ka-Blam and Dreamweaver and currently am leaning more toward Ka-Blam as I seem to like their output/paper better. I'm wondering if there are any better outfits out there for POD? Any recommendations?

Thanks!
Mario

If you can afford a whole print run, it is often cheaper in the long run to find a good print shop in your local area and get them to do it. It doesn't need to be a huge print run. It increases your level of control, too.

Though I have heard very good things about Ka-Blam's prices when it comes to printing full colour.

I always use Comixpress. Slow turnarounds but great prices, quality and folks making the books.

Thanks for the additional option, Dave. I've sent off for samples. The prices are very reasonable. The only trade-off seems to be no printing on the inside covers, but I think I can live with that. :)
