Impressed with Print Book Service and Quality
So, my proof copy of my first book arrived in the post today. I'm very impressed with the delivery speed. I ordered it on Thursday evening and today is Tuesday, so it's been printed and delivered in less than three working days. Packaging protected the book sufficiently.
Quality-wise, I am also very pleased. I posted previously on here that, in the pdf preview, the margins seemed a teeny bit inconsistent. Well, it must have been my eyes playing tricks: there's nothing weird in the print copy. The paper quality is good, the colours on the cover have printed as I expected. There's a tiny bleed of the white spine (about 1mm) onto the front cover towards the bottom, but it's barely noticable. I guess that happens occasionally with the fold.
In summary, I'll definitely use Lulu's print book services again and would recommend to others. Thanks.
