Book Fulfillment

Just-in-time service

Acutrack gives you control over your revenue with our powerful book printing and fulfillment services

The traditional model is that most publishing companies take ownership of your books and offer you limited royalties.

However, if you have an established customer base and wish to have full control over your sales and simply need a book fulfillment partner, we are a perfect fit for you.

In order to help you create the exact book or manual you have in mind, we offer a wide range of printing options.  We use the latest digital color and black and white printing equipment that produce top-quality prints quickly and efficiently.  This technology also allows us to print in custom sizes, so you can create the exact product you have in mind.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of books do we make?
We have several binding options to choose from. Perfect Bound and Saddle Stitched are the most common options. Plastic spiral is an option for books that should lie flat when open, such as manuals or cookbooks.

Quantity
These days, the term “Print On Demand”—or POD—has become commonplace. Printing a single book at a time has a convenience factor, but printing a single book is more expensive than printing a short run of books. It can also be a good idea to combine printed books with eBooks, to give your customers more options, and to spread out costs.

Text Paper
Our standard text paper is 50# white Accent, cream and ivory.  Other shades and weights are also available.

Covers
Our standard cover stock for softcover books is white 100 # Gloss cover.  You also have the option for Matte cover stock which gives the cover a dull finish.  Other stocks are also available. Covers are printed in full color. Our perfect bindery can handle both gloss and matte finish cover stock.

Trim Size
To get the most for your money, choose a standard trim size such as 5½ x 8½, 6” x 9”, or 8½ x 11. For example, a 7” x 9” book would be priced at the larger 8½” x 11” size and trimmed down to 7” x 9”.  The size of a book can depend on its subject matter. A short column width makes the book very readable and easy to handle, ship and display. 8½” x 11” is a better size for books with many photos, double columns or illustrations. Landscape formats (books bound on the short side) cost more than standard portrait sizes.

Bleeds
When “text” pages have photos, boxes, text or images that touch the outside edge of a page, this is called a “bleed.” A bleed will add expense because the book must be printed at a larger size and trimmed smaller to cut to the bleed.
