Short Run Custom Book Printing

No matter your reason for needing quality, affordable short-run book printing, QinPrinting has the best pricing for every order, large or small. We believe that each customer deserves the best pricing, attention to detail, and quality guarantee regardless of the quantity they order.

You have many options for paper stock to print your book at QinPrinting. Most books use gloss or matte art paper or uncoated offset paper for interactive titles like coloring books. But, you are not limited to these typical selections.

You may also choose from specially paper stocks like linen finish or other textures. Opting for a specialty stock can impact your pricing to some degree, but it may be worth considering for your unique project.

Gloss Lamination

Bookbinding Options

As a premier book printing specialist in China,QinPrinting has several bookbinding options depending on your design and the intended use of your book.

Perfect Binding

Perfect Binding

A popular and familiar style of bookbinding, perfect binding, or paperback, is a visually appealing and economical bookbinding solution. Although typically used for comic books and fiction, perfect binding is available for any genre.

hardcover binding

Hardcover Binding

Hardcover books are more durable than most other books, and this binding style is often perceived as more valuable by consumers. At QinPrinting, we follow stringent standards using only high-end materials and innovative techniques to produce the very best hardcover books with pricing that will make your decision easy.

While any title can take advantage of hardcover bookbinding, many children’s books and other books like coffee table and photography volumes also rely on the hardcover binding for the ultimate presentation and maintain their price point.

Saddle Stitch

Saddle Stitch Binding

For books of 48 pages or less, saddle stitching is a popular and economical bookbinding method. Saddle stitching is often the choice for comic books, coloring books, product instruction manuals, and more.

Because saddle stitch bookbinding employs fewer and more basic production steps, it is a shorter process ideal for quick turnaround times.

Open Flat Book Binding

Perhaps you have a cookbook, syllabus, or workbook that must necessarily open flat for the consumer to use. QinPrinting offers three different binding options to select when creating a book that opens flat.

Wire-O & Spiral Binding

Sometimes called “punch and bind,” both methods punch or drill equally spaced holes along the spine. In each case, wire threads through the holes, holding the individual pages together while allowing them to turn independently.


Spiral Binding

Spiral bookbinding is a standard method for commercial products like student notebooks and journals, products you are likely familiar with.


Wire-O Binding

This bookbinding method incorporates a double wire for a more robust and functional open-flat book. Usually, textbooks, software manuals, medical volumes, and cookbooks take advantage of this proven bookbinding style. Wire-O binding allows for smooth and easy page turning with a stronger spine to survive extended use.

Lay-Flat Perfect Bookbinding

Lay-Flat Perfect Bookbinding

If a coiled wire spine is not your preference, but you still need a book that will open flat, QinPrinting offers a unique answer.
Lay-Flat Perfect Binding.
Our Lay-Flat Perfect Binding style has the appearance of a paperback with the function of a Spiral or Wire-O binding. First, we apply a sewn binding to the interior pages before gluing them to the cover. The sewn pages are not adhered to the spine, allowing the book to open flat.
Our Lay-Flat Binding gives you the best of both worlds for a clean, professional presentation.
And best of all, this up-scale binding method is the least expensive of all the options for an open-flat book.

Landscape and Portrait Book Printing

Historically, most books are in the Portrait format. But, what if you have a title better suited to Landscape style?

Unlike most book printing companies, QinPrinting will print your landscape format book at the same price as a standard Portrait style. Again, we provide our clients with incredible pricing unavailable from our competition.

Why Print Books in China?

The Chinese book printing industry is robust and comprehensive, allowing for printing any style or book configuration imaginable. Companies can easily network to fulfill any printing requirement a customer may have.

Step 4

Communication via the Internet makes book printing in China as easy as ever. Whether you choose the efficient and cost-effective option for printing in China or go with a local vendor, you will likely create your artwork in the same fashion digitally. Making it virtually the same whether you print down the street or in China

Step 5

The solid Chinese work ethic; most printing companies in China operate six days a week, 24 hours a day. And, we have already mentioned the energy and commitment of our workers.

For example, shipping from the port of Shanghai to the Port of Long Beach in the US can take as little as 11 to 13 days on a faster Matson shipping vessel.
