Compliments on the quality of the books…

Book Printing and Binding Kandy and her daughters have a family owned publishing company run by two generations of women who believe stories matter!  During a time of isolation she wrote a book where the story provides opportunities to find happiness.  They sent us a nice card expressing their thanks for our assistance in producing “Red Was Blue.”

“We wanted to let you know we have received so many compliments on the quality of the books print and hard cover.  Everyone says it is one of the highest quality books they own.  We are so thankful for you and your partnership.  Our next couple of books will be coming late spring, early summer.  We look forward to continuing projects.”

Book Signing in Wisconsin!

Irene is an author that wrote a book about her hometown of Greenwood Wisconsin.  The book has been very popular and she stated, “The books have been well received with all 300 of her initial order going quickly.”  We have even received phone calls at Smith Printing from individuals praising the quality of the book!  Starting with notebooks full of information, and little help, she was able to transform it all into book form.  As mentioned in the Medford Star News, she hopes the book serves as a resource for families with roots in the Greenwood area.  I’m sure she had a lot of fun at her book signing!

Smith Printing goes to Washington!

Book Printing and BindingWe have been printing books for a long time now and have had customers all over the world.  One of our latest books was to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Presidential Food Service at the White House.  It sounds like they enjoyed the books almost as much as the delicious food served over the last seven decades! 

I did take a look inside but I can’t tell you about it… 😉 

“Good morning Becky,

The books are far beyond our expectations and we are extremely happy with them!

We are working on sending it to NAVSUP (Naval Supply Systems Command) our Supply headquarters to showcase what your business and Presidential Food Service has done!”

Christmas in June…!

Book Printing and BindingWell it may be the middle of June but it was like Christmas for Anne!  She created a fun dog themed book and was delighted with the result.

Becky!

We just received and opened the two boxes and it really was like Christmas in June!  Good, great, excellent work!  The binding is superb as is everything else!  Thank you so, so much for making this possible!  We absolutely love the supremely professional job including the kind, helpful and fun correspondence with you through this journey.  So please, send me the invoice because I have never been so happy to spend my hard-earned cash as on this. 

Appreciatively and with thanksgiving to the Lord for you,

Anne

Keeping small town history alive…

Book Printing and BindingThis week’s customer feedback story is about an author that wrote a book containing a collection of stories and interviews.  Her book contained a history of the families and church of a small town in northern Wisconsin.

Hello Becky,

Yes, I did receive the books and they are beautiful.  I had a conversation with Irene and she is elated!  She will have a book signing in a couple weeks (May 22 and 23) at the Historic St. Ann’s Church which is a focal point of the book.  She is thinking of it as a family reunion.  I plan to attend and continue to be of support to her. Irene told me that when her daughter saw the book tears came to her eyes.  She is so proud of her mother’s accomplishment and to see her father’s name in print.

For sure, I would not hesitate one bit on recommending your printing to anyone who asked.  I appreciate your kindness (even when I am pestering you about when the books will be finished) and your assistance.  I have never before done such a project with someone so your helpfulness was greatly appreciated.

I am happy that the cover looks so beautiful.  Whoever of your staff did it, give them my greetings and a word of appreciation.  Both Irene and I are pleased.

Blessings and peace to you,

Mary

A book about Sully the Rescue Dog…

Book Printing and BindingEvery book printing project is different…authors often share their deepest passions with the world through their creative works.  Christie had Smith Printing produce her book about Sully the rescue dog.   It has been a busy time but a great journey!

“I love the final product!  I have been extra busy with things BESIDES the book, but have still managed to sell 62 copies in two weeks.  I have a book reading scheduled next Saturday in Rochester that I am really excited about. It’s a fund raiser for RAGOM and I was so honored that they invited Sully and I to the event!  I would be more than happy to fill out a favorable review!”

“Becky was wonderful to work with! She guided me through the process of getting my book printed and was always available to answer my questions. Becky made the process of printing my book an enjoyable experience!”

Christie

Re: BOOKS SHIPPED!

Book Printing and BindingKim came to us with a book project that he had originally completed in digital form only.  He had his daughter help with cover design and Terri at Smith Printing assisted in formatting the book.  There were also some friends that helped push him over the finish line!  He sent an email sharing a Facebook post detailing his experience:

“My printed book arrived at the house today. I’m impressed. (Not at its words but rather by its looks.) My daughter’s cover is eye catching and beautiful and reading my name on the binding is fun. I worked with Smith Printing in Ramsey and am glad I did. Although the book hasn’t changed substantially since I first published it electronically, with Smith’s help and the help of its formatting and creative genius, Terri Peterson, it is now professional. As they made formatting changes, I read my work extremely closely and made enough changes in content for me to feel proud of our creation. Lots of work. Lots of patience. Lots of fun. Special thanks to Nancy Robinson, a Facebook friend who read it months ago and enjoyed it so much, she inspired me to take it the next step. Others have been encouraging as well and I thank you all.”
