- Remove any loose papers, photos or miscellaneous items that may be between the pages of your book, and straighten any pages that may be folded or dog-eared.
- Complete, print and include with your book(s) or materials our website order form that corresponds with the service you have chosen. Or you may include a note or letter with your name, address, e-mail address and phone number; and other pertinent information such as instructions or your preferences. If using a credit card for payment, please include your card information at this time; your card will not be charged until the work is finished.
- Use a sturdy corrugated box, with flaps intact and large enough to allow room for adequate cushioning material on all sides of the contents. Cushioning material may include bubble pack, polystyrene "peanuts", foam, corrugated dividers or crumpled Kraft paper or newspaper. If shipping more than one book, separate them with paper between or wrap each book individually. Close the box securely, using a strong tape (not masking tape or cellophane tape). Do not wrap the outside of the box with string or paper since they may snag on automated equipment at the shipper's.
After we receive your material, you may receive an email with a cost estimate for the work to be done. If necessary we will call or e-mail you to discuss your requirements and available options, at which time we can give you a quote and an approximate date of completion. Normally, we have a backlog of about 6 to 8 weeks (during our busy summer months it may be longer); however, we may be able to accommodate special circumstances.
You can be assured that your materials will be handled with the utmost care. When the job is finished, we will call or e-mail you for your choice method of payment (which may be check, money order or credit card) if prior arrangements have not been made. Your completed order will ship as soon as payment is received.
We ship out binding orders via UPS, unless requested otherwise.
