Your job is to find (possibly 10) price quotes for a book that I am publishing. I would prefer if the printer was out of China, India or another Asian country, for low cost purposes. Do not use Australian or American or other first world printers.
Cost of freight to Tasmania ( Australia) must also be included (please provide a price for air freight, sea freight and delivery time).
We also need to know the time it will take to get the books in our hands.
We will be printing either 250 or 500 copies.
Here are the specifications of the book:
Title Book: 141 pages plus covers
Prepress Supplied files (already formatted with layout (pdf))
Paper: Offset 90gsm text pages, 130 gsm silk colour sections and
300gsm cover stock
Ink Colours: Colour cover and 3 sections, the rest black
Finished size: 210 x 148mm
Finishing: Perfect binding
It is recommended you use sites such as Alibaba.com.
A proof copy is required from the printer before printing will commence.
The price per book (not including shipping) must be cheaper than $4AU.
