Introducing offset book printing services from Blurb

Chateau Teyssier & World’s End | Jonathan and Lyn Maltus

Jonathan Maltus, often referred to as a cult winemaker, is the proud owner of Chateau Teyssier in Bordeaux and World’s End in Napa Valley. To celebrate and promote his vineyards, he produced a 39-page trade paperback. The book describes Maltus' land, vineyards, and wine in fascinating detail. Maltus initially printed 1000 copies for use at his wineries, but has discovered even more uses for the book. He distributes books at special tastings for his wine club as well as to groups who tour the vineyards. The book is both a promotional and marketing tool; Maltus is also using it to sell his wines to merchants and buyers across the globe.

I was very happy with the quality of the Blurb books. And the pricing of Blurb’s offset printing service is something that will keep us coming back in the future.”

Significant savings, customization, and personal service

Blurb’s print-on-demand (POD) platform allows anybody to make and publish a beautiful book. Now there’s another way to self-publish with Blurb: offset printing. For large projects—book orders of 750 or more—offset book printing offers a way to significantly reduce costs while still enjoying all of the benefits of the Blurb ecosystem. Any book file you create with our book-making tools can be used with any of our printing options. For example, you might do an initial limited POD run to generate interest in your book and then do a larger offset order later.

Offset printing with Blurb offers:

  • A lower cost per unit
  • A wide range of customization options
  • Dedicated account management
  • Quality control with a free proof copy

With offset printing, you can take delivery of your entire order at once or use our “pick and pack” service—we warehouse your books until you’re ready to ship them, in bulk or by individual orders.

Frequently Asked Questions about offset printing with Blurb

What’s the average time from order to delivery for offset printing jobs?

Once you approve your proof and place your order, printing and shipping takes approximately 6-10 weeks, depending on your project and where you print. We have two offset printing options: In region (US, Canada, and Europe) and offshore. Offshore printing is cheaper but will take longer. Regardless of where you print or what your timeline is, you can be sure your books will be up to Blurb quality standards.

Which book formats and customization options are available with offset printing?

All of our print-on-demand book formats and sizes can be produced with offset printing. We also offer foil stamping, embossing, headband and footband options, ribbon markers, and custom end sheets. Talk to our team for more information.

How should I choose between offset printing and digital print on demand?

Our dedicated team will look at your order—quantity, trim size, paper type, timeline, etc.—and help you determine which printing method is best for your project. The standard minimum order with Blurb is 750 books, though this can vary based on your book specifications. Our account management team can help you determine if POD, offset, or a combination of both is right for you.

If you’re considering making an order of 500 books or more, the best thing to do is to contact our team to see what we can do for you.
