So you tried online print on demand services for your comics, and found out they're extremely expensive, right...?
When you sell a comic book $5, you don't want to pay $4 to manufacture them with digital print on demand.
This is where commercial printers become interesting. They have the equipment and expertise to print your books for around a dollar. And best of all there certainly is one located near your place so you can go meet them, discuss your project, approve samples and so on.
But how to find them? What do they need to begin with? How do I approach one? These are big companies, they won't be interested in my humble little book.
Wrong. Printers always welcome new customers, big and small. To connect with a commercial printer, you can try Printer Seeker.
