Printing
CreateBooks is an uncompromising commercial printer with the experience and the resources you'd expect. We use digital presses and offset lithography equipment. Digital printing is most cost effective for smaller book volumes, under ~500 copies. Offset is more economical for large book runs or where colour reproduction is an issue.

Professional Editing
Another pair of eyes can be helpful when your manuscript is ready. Our professional editors refine manuscripts everyday. We work side by side with authors. Catch typos, misused words and ensure the grammar is perfect… before going to press. More info...


Terms of Use for ISBN Assignment
ISBN, (International Standard Book Number), assignments identify a single unique publication. At the discretion of the purchaser and during the production of the title, CreateBooks assigns and manages ISBN assignments on behalf of the author, copyright holder, or their appointed agent to ensure that no duplication occurs. The ISBN prefix identifies CreateBooks as the publisher. The copyright holder or their appointed agent purchasing the ISBN service from CreateBooks retains ALL usage, copyright and distribution rights.
Copyright ownership is the sole responsibility of the purchaser.
The intellectual property incorporated in the publication produced by CreateBooks on behalf of the purchaser remains the property of the author or the copyright holder. The author or copyright holder agrees that CreateBooks cannot be held accountable or liable for any subsequent copyright or distribution dispute. Our lawyers made us say this.

Bindery
Many of the books we produce are trade 'paperbacks' with perfect bindings. Plasti-Coil and Wire-O bindings are available in a variety of diameters and colours. Coil style bindings rest flat on desks and fold over covers. Consider coil for for manuals, conferences, kids' books, and cookbooks, etc.
Genuine Smythe-sewn binding and Hard Cover library editions are available on request. Keep in mind that section sewed bindings will take time, measured in old world units. Ask your publishing assistant for current pricing and expected schedules.
