Book Printing in China

Book printing with Fontaine Publishing Group =
Risk Removed + Increased Profit

Deal directly with a foreign printing company at your own peril!

Large foreign printing companies are geared specifically to deal with trade publishers and large agencies that 'speak their language'.

Intimate knowledge of the entire prepress and book printing processes is assumed. There is also the large variable between printers in the way they handle files, their processes and payment and shipping procedures.

Fontaine Press' publishing experts have had decades of experience within this industry for the benefit of our clientele. We can provide the safety net, navigating around the pitfalls to ensure your book printing & publishing goals are fulfilled, at a cost often less then dealing direct with offshore firms that may or may not deliver what you want.

Offshore printing supplied by Fontaine Press can provide substantial savings and you deal only with a reputable established Australian book printing and publishing company specialising in the Australian book trade. We supply only the highest quality printed products.

It is important to understand that not every print job should be considered for overseas printing. Overseas printing is not well-suited for: - Projects requiring less than a 9 week turnaround or short print-run projects (Under 500 hardcover books, 5,000 paperback books.)

How long will an overseas printing job take from start to finish?

Press proofs typically will take 15-21 days to arrive for your approval. Once we receive your approval of the press proofs, the printing, binding, finishing, hands-on labor, and packaging can all be done within 4 weeks. Ocean freight will take approximately 14 days and rush delivery by air will take 3-5 days. Customs clearance and delivery to specified addresses take an extra 4-6 days. On many occasions partial air-shipments have been included into rush projects. Fulfillment of an initial shipment would include either shipping from our overseas factories via air freight or through DHL.

Is there a minimum order for overseas printing?

500 hardcover books or 5,000 paperback books. Usually jobs that require more hands-on labor (spiral & double wire-o binding, custom cutting & finishing, etc...) save the most with overseas printing due to inexpensive labor costs; regardless of the quantities.

Can Fontaine Press deliver the job to a destination I specify?
We offer door-to-door service - we look after all taxes, legal documents and fulfill all customs forms and legalities. Or, if you are on a tight budget, you can pick up from a our depot at all capital cities.
