    Who are the biggest and the best hardcover coffee table photo book printers in the USA?

    Looking for a press who can do smythe sewn hardcover books, dust jackets, quality printing and binding in the 1500 to 5000 quantity range for an independent publisher offering good value and great quality and located in the United States.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks leorainbow - but are candidusprint.com really printing in the US? Their website seems to indicate they're printing in china or there is some kind of front involved :(

    Thanks for being honest at least leorainbow. At first I thought you were trying to pretend to be printing in the USA but actually brokering or pawning it off to somewhere cheaper behind my back - that's dishonest :mad: Print brokers like that are no good for the industry.

    Anyway, nothing against overseas, but as the title says, I was looking for book printers in the USA for this project.

    sorry, i am not in the USA, and that is my company, not brockering. I just realized that you want to print in the USA, it is OK, sorry for the disturbing, good luck :)

    Thank you for your honesty and sorry if I was gruff. I felt like you and warson were spamming me. I know I could have printing done anywhere on the globe including china, but I was looking for USA book printers as the title suggests. I have seen some really nice books that have been printed in china, so I don't have anything against chinese printers in general :) Just seeking the best USA book presses with this topic for some upcoming projects that I want to print in the USA.
