Have you ever asked yourself, “how can I print my comic book?” Bestype has decades of experience championing the independent comic book printing NYC community. Independent graphic artists are the stars of contemporary comic book printing. So, are you ready to share your characters and cosmos with the world? Our experts will guide you through production and how comic books are printed.
You can easily self-publish comic book single issues, series, graphic novels, or manga through affordable comic book printing services. We’ll show you how to maximize your project’s budget to make your graphic-intense work of art accessible and affordable. Your story will find your fandom! We’re here to help every narrative find its way onto the page.
Your groundbreaking comic book starts with your hero, some conflict, and a villain. Give your characters involving backstories, and take your readers along for an immersive journey! Write tight dialogue — writing and world design are as important as striking artwork.
Some comic book creators prefer working traditionally as opposed to digitally. Suppose you prefer drawing, inking, and lettering on an artboard. In that case, we’ll give you tips to make the most of each digital page scan. Whatever your layout, we’ll help you set up your interior page margins, gutters, and image resolution to print your project.
Your comic book printing choices include full-color graphics printing or black and white. Size and layout options include standard western comic book formatting or manga — your book’s style is up to you. You can print your issues using fast, digital printing or utilize traditional lithographic offset comic book printing.
US comic book publishers typically choose 6.625″ x 10.25″ (to fit in standard display racks), but your book can be as small as 5.5″ x 7.75″ or go jumbo at 9″ x 12″.
Most commercial comic books use interior offset paper combined with glossy or matte cover stock. Still, your choices in cover and interiors are up to you. We offer a full range of cover stock, interior page weights, and finishes to match any project budget.
Your comic book’s binding options include popular traditional comic book stitch-binding, softcover graphic novel formatting, and hardcover styles.
Saddle stitch (staple) binding is economical and effective for shorter books containing 64 pages or less.
Perfect binding (square binding) uses glue to stick pages into a spine and cover. Perfect binding invites multiple reads!
Case binding (hardcover) works great for your most special projects or as gifts for friends and family.
Comic book printing services are available in full-color and black and white. You can opt for full-color covers and keep your inside pages black and white (or grayscale) — however you decide your story works best, we want to print for you. Digital printing is the most economical choice for short runs of comic books. Choose offset printing for larger independent projects. We’ll help you choose the printing method that works best to print your comic book.
