A hard cover book gives you credibility as an author...

Wouldn't you be impressed receiving a hard cover book from an author or a relative? Or receiving a family history, (genealogy), poetry, juvenile book, fiction, recipes, etc.

You?ll impress family, friends, reviewers, talk show hosts, librarians, bookstore owners, and general audiences!

People rarely throw away hard covered books! Most libraries require them. Reviewers notice them! (Will some relative find yours some day?)

If you need to market your book, don't waste money on book marketing scams.

There is nothing you can't do for yourself, easily, at little or no cost, such as appear on talk shows, get into popular mail-order catalogs, get reviewed in relevant magazines.

You'll need to get a domain name, (a dot com), under $15.00 a year, and a free or low cost web site, such as www.godaddy.com or www.Directnic.com,

Advertise on the internet, on eBay, Yahoo, Google, and Amazon, sell to schools and libraries through book distributors, arrange book signings, etc.

We'll tell our authors where to buy an incredible book that has the best marketing information for self-published authors.



Having J. Mark Press sew and bind hard cover books from your
already-printed pages gives you specific advantages that no one else offers:

1. Include lots of pictures, and color affordably.

2. Hard Bind a few books with many pages affordably.

3. Have full control over graphics on your pages.

4. Use fancier grades of white paper.

(Do not use color paper). Please use white only. We only use white end papers.



Here's How Easy It Gets...

Everyone can have a local copy-shop print and collate
their pages in the correct size ready for us to bind.

1 - Tell us which size do you want . . .
or 6"x9"
or 8"x7" 
or 8" x 5"

You need to allow 1/2" to 3/4" blank margins
around each page for our trimming.

2 - Which style hard cover do you want . . .
     Gold-titled Vinyl-clothbound (below)
or  Full-Color Art Laminated (below)

3 - How many books do you want bound . . .
     15 to 200 laminated
or any amount in vinyl cloth binding.

4. How thick does it measure?

We'll quote you the price.
You simply send us the pages with your email address.
  We'll email you a secure invoice to pay online.
Charge the amount to any major credit
card (safely online only).

Do not request laminated covers on
8 " x 11" or 6"x9"
We cannot accommodate you.

For Paper dust jackets, after your book is bound, you need to find a "printer," who prints oversized paper. We suggest "Kinko's"




Here's How Else We Can Help You

We can provide the ISBN number you need, and list your book
in "Books In Print," so it can be located worldwide by everyone,
major book sellers, academic or public libraries, etc.

If your book will be sold in bookstores, you must have an ISBN number.
You cannot get a bar code for your book until it has an ISBN number.


These are actual photos of Our Gold Embossed Vinyl-Clothbound Hard Covered Books

We "guarantee" that all our books are
Smyth-Sewn, and library approved quality.
You will be proud and pleased.

Our book binding is guaranteed to meet the standards of schools,
bookstores, and public libraries.  We cannot sell you someone's
book. Most of our books' pages were provided by the author and
are not representative of our work.

If you want to purchase a random remainder book see the quality,
you may click here. There is a service charge of $1.00 plus $11.95
shipping and handling.

3.) Choose Classic Gold-titled vinyl-cloth
hard covered books shown here.
(a semi-gloss water-resistant finish).


Or choose the NEW Laminated hard cover

To use this style your book size must be 
8"x 5"  or    8"x 7".

A similar technique is used for decades on children's books: (Golden Books, Dr. Zeus, etc.) Now it is turning up in gift-type books in bookstores.

This style eliminates a need for dust jackets
that can fall off and get ruined,
and that are very expensive in small quantity.

Here full-color art is printed on plain white paper,
then laminated in sparkling acrylic coating, then
mounted onto hard covers, (instead of using cloth or vinyl).

You need to supply us with your own
printed, ready-to-bind, pages.

For the cover art, we can use our art or yours, or send you margin requirements and you can print your cover on 11x17" 24 lb white paper which we can laminate and wrap around our board to create the same covers.

Your picture needs to be inkjet or offset printing, not laser, and meet our approval first.
You need a large per cent of white area or laminating won't adhere to the art properly.

FREE We provide Full-color professional art for
Laminated hard covers provided by our art dept.
(A glossy Dust-jacket-look).
We will consider your personally submitted cover design only
if the picture is within 3"x 5" with no dark, or dense color areas,
suitable for our reproduction.)

Our book binding is guaranteed to meet the standards of schools,
bookstores, and public libraries.  We cannot sell you someone's
book. Most of our books' pages were provided by the author and
are not representative of our work.
