We believe in our pricing so much that we want to show it to you as soon as possible. When you fill out our instant quote form the price of your book will be calculated instantly in big, bold numbers. At Apollo we believe you shouldn’t have to fill out endless forms, input all of your contact information (which we ALL know will result in endless follow-up phone calls and emails), and wait to hear back on what your price will be. Today we all want to have information at our fingertips to make quick, intelligent decisions. Our instant quote calculator will help you choose the best options for your book, and provide you with book pricing immediately to get started with your project today!

However, instant quotes are only good if you know all the information. Apollo offers 3 different types of book binding and over 15 assorted sizes to pick from, with both color and black and white interiors. We also offer different paper stock. If you are new to this we can help you out. Sometimes just moving up to the next size book will reduce the number of pages and can save you money. If you would like a very accurate quote that we will stand behind, our experts will look at your file and give you a solid quote. We are here to help. We promise we will not put you on a follow-up list. The most we will do is email you to make sure that you received the quote. We will take the time to explain the differences, let you know what you need, and make your book printing experience as easy as possible.

Send us your Files

After you’ve tweaked your printing options and found the quantity and price that works best for you, it’s time to officially get the project started. Think of Apollo as your print concierge: we will help you through the whole process. We are the experts at book printing and are here to help you make the right choices, working with you to make sure everything is correct. We do not want you to end up with a box of books that you can’t use. Your book cover will be reviewed to make sure the important information fits within the safe zone, and to ensure you have a barcode and that it is correct. We will look at the interior of your book to make sure the numbering is correct and that there are no excess white pages. Apollo has printed thousands of books and we know what can go wrong; we will do our best to help you avoid making those errors. We want you to have a book that you can be proud of.

We can accept your files through our upload system, email, or through the mail on a USB Drive. We will always return any files that we modify via email.

Check the proof

Our staff will pre-flight your files and prepare a proof for your final approval. Depending on the options you select, this proof will either be a high resolution PDF you download, or a physical copy of your book that comes in the mail. Either way, you have the opportunity to review your book one last time before it moves into production. It’s during this phase of development that you’ll get to review our work if you’ve hired us to design your cover or layout the interior. Once you are 100% happy with the proof, you will sign off and your book will be sent to the printer! With our printing system you can easily make changes if you find a mistake later.
