Book Printing NYC

Fast, Friendly Book Printing in NYC

Book publishing has never been easier, and Thomas Group Printing combines the latest in printing technology with long tradition, putting more than a century of experience to work on each book we print. Whether it’s for a business, school, charity, or as the author yourself, you can expect us to deliver high-quality printed books with affordable pricing.

What We Offer

The options for book printing vary to fit any type of book you need created: Cookbooks, art books, fashion or design lookbooks, manuals, booklets, handbooks, catalogs and self-published books.

Digital printing allows us to take the labor and frustration out of getting a book printed, with short or large runs available. Reprints are also easy, since the print files are safely stored for the next time you need a specific book.

Short Run Book Printing

You don’t need to be a huge company or have a vast number of books to print them with us. We frequently help small businesses and others who need short run book printing services. We can handle the printing of thousands of books if that’s what you need, or do a limited run of just 50 or 100 books. We also have the capabilities to print books in full digital color, perfect for lookbooks and catalogs.

 

Examples of Our Book Printing Work:

A saddle-stitched booklet printed for the International Center for Photography

A perfect bound book, printed for NRDC

A saddle-stitched booklet we completed for MoMa

100 page silk cover Chicago Post style bookbinding project for Visual Opinion, the student magazine of the School of Visual Arts.

Printing Your Book

We’ll talk with you about the many options available to produce your book just the way you envision it. You may want to choose digital printing for a small quantity of books, or offset printing for a larger print run. Digital printing is what allows us to offer small batch or short run book printing for organizations, businesses or individuals. Setup is easy and cheap compared to traditional offset printing on a press, so your cost per book can be lower, especially with a print run of smaller volume. However, the larger the number of books you need printed, the more cost-effective offset printing will become. Talk with our experienced print team to figure out what is best for your needs.

Types of binding and finishing often depend on the type of book and its desired appearance. Perfect binding, saddle-stitched binding, coil or wire binding and others suit different kinds of projects.

Perfect-bound books have a square spine with a heavier outer cover, which works well for books up to about an inch thick, like catalogs, manuals and lookbooks. Saddle stitching produces booklet-style publications with staples in the center fold line, best for short booklets and manuals, playbills, catalogs and zines.

Wire or spiral coil bindings work well for cookbooks, handbooks, manuals and anything else that requires a lot of hands-on use. Wire suits publications up to about a half-inch thick, while spiral coils can handle up to an inch.

Our finishing team can also help determine what finishing details will work best for your book, with options like round cornering, embossing, foil stamping, or laminations. A wide range of bookbinding and finishing styles will give you the chance to make an impact no matter what your field or audience.

Our Approach

We know book printing needs don’t always conform to a set schedule, and we always do our best to deliver your project as quickly as possible with an eye on exceptional quality.

Thomas Group Printing is a fourth-generation, family-owned printer, and that shapes the way we do business. With a solid foundation of family values and tradition, we’ve built a company that adapts to the newest print technologies and market needs. There’s not a printing project out there we haven’t had experience with, and we’re conveniently located in Manhattan.

That makes delivery and turnaround fast for our NYC customers, to whom we offer courier delivery anywhere in the city. Outside of NYC, we offer fast shipping nationwide. Thomas Group Printing’s mission is to give our customers the best quality book printing, with the best service we can. Read our reviews below to hear about the excellent level of service we strive to provide to each and every customer.

Thomas Group Printing is incredibly professional and the execution of their design is really top tier. They worked with our designers to ensure that a continuous image for the front and back cover would read well in print. They're so easy to work with, and were even able to make last minute changes for us. Best value printing I've experienced in New York- delivering really high-quality print jobs with incredible turn-around times. Very willing and able to make tough deadlines, and

We needed calendars made for a charity project my company was putting together, and now I'm confident we'll never need to look elsewhere when we do this again. Rory was immensely helpful every step of the way. As someone who really had no idea what I was asking for on a technical level, they were able to explain every detail to me in simple terms and we couldn't be more thrilled with the finished product! I could not recommend Thomas Group Printing any higher and I look forward to doing business with them again soon.

We've been working with these guys for a couple of years and have no plans of changing print agencies. They're super responsive and produce quality results all the time. From simple postcards, to full books, to delicate tissue paper - they do everything. Very easy to work with and they probably have one of the most competitive prices in NYC.

Love working with Thomas Group. I have worked with them multiple times and just wrapped up a book and postcard project with them – they are gorgeous. The print quality for the images was the best we've ever achieved. Both pieces went over well with everyone, but the book stood out and our COO even took it and used it as an example to the whole company for what a premium marketing material is and how valuable it is to the organization. They are lovely to work and always flexible and helpful.

We had a great experience working with Thomas Group Printing! We ordered 200+ 11x17 spiral-bound copies of a white paper/research study that we release every year. The paper quality, color printing, and binding options were great. Originally, we had contacted 10-20 different printers to find the right fit for us and the TGP was the best option. Their customer service was also lovely - Rory followed-up regularly, was patient as we made various decisions about binding and quantity, and helped us create an amazing piece that we are proud of.

We are a small design firm, and just started using the Thomas Group a few months ago, after some disappointing results with our longtime printers. We couldn't be happier with our switch to the Thomas Group. Rory and Glen are extremely communicative and accommodating, and are able to work quickly on tight deadlines, while keeping a very high level of quality. We are excited to continue our relationship with them, and would recommend them to anyone.
