Here's my paper choppa and my hot glue perfect binder... what you got /Lit/?

>> No.18589237

>>18589186
1)What kind of books do you print?
2)Why?
3)How much does that stuff cost? How much does it cost to make a book with it?

>> No.18589278

>>18589237
1. Books I have written
2. Full control over the process means you cannot be cancelled / publisher drop you / Amazon delete your books
3. Chopper = 1k+ or $500 used, glue machine = $500-700, toner & paper is still dirt cheap!

>> No.18589306

>>18589278
So does the perfect binder fold the signatures as well? I assume not since you had to buy a shear as well. So you have to fold by hand, staple the signatures, shear the edges even, stack the signatures then stick them in the binder? Does the machine do anything other then glue?

>> No.18589321

>>18589306
What's a signature?

The printer prints
The chopper chops
The perfect binder binds the pages to the cover
It works almost flawlessly, but I need more practice to make the books perfect every time. Right now I make a shit book every 1 in 4

Thanks... the spine isn't perfect as the hot glue roller isn't 100% spot on. I have to manually use a spatula to wipe the glue for 100% coverage. Then I have to be careful to not apply too much or the cover will open unevenly.

Once I'm up and making money, I wanna help /Lit/ do this in your own local community.

/lit/ does not read. /lit/ does not write. You expect someone here to start their own printing press? If I wrote a book I could have Amazon print the proof and ship it to me in 2-3 days with minimal start up and easily scale future production and fulfillment so long as my book did not become a best-seller.

I can understand being engrossed in the writing process but doing layout and cover design seems like a quick, cybernetic task of prototyping until it looks nice, not something to be consumed by. That's energy that could be spent on content
