March is a pretty big deal if you’re a children’s book printer – or even just a lover of the genre, in general.

Earlier this month, many literature enthusiasts and kids of all ages celebrated the birthday of Theodore Geisel, better known by the world as Dr. Seuss.

March has been declared National Reading Month in tribute to Seuss. Activities are held in every corner of the nation, honoring the Seuss’s legacy – which has transcended childhood favorites like “The Cat in the Hat” and “Horton Hears a Who” to touch every single artistic medium, from television to film and far beyond. And for good reason: Dr. Seuss has inspired generation upon generation of future storytellers, whose tales of daring, adventure, fantasy, friendship, and more will keep the children’s book printer industry busy for eons to come.

If you are one of those budding authors, here are just three ways your children’s book printer can help you and your words become legendary in your own right.

  1. Access a universe of colors: Your children’s book printer will open the door to a dazzling array of possibilities to fully realize your story’s dynamic world. Choose from one-color and four-color text with vibrant color palates, as well as options for four-color covers with matte, gloss, and soft-touch lamination that bring your imagination to life.
  2. Help your ideas take shape: The beauty of a children’s book is that “there are no rules.” Unlike novels and textbooks and – uniformity is thrown out the window. Ideas take on their own dimension, and your children’s book printer makes it possible with myriad layout options. Start with a hardcover or softcover binding, and then let your creativity soar. Printers offer a wide range of trim sizes and can showcase your words and images in portrait or oblong format. The sky is the limit.
  1. Reach your audience as soon as possible: Digital book printing has come a long way. High-volume inkjet and laser printers don’t require the time-intensive setup and plate changes required in offset printing, allowing for quicker production times and delivering your children’s books to market faster. Additionally, because digital paves the way for smaller print runs – you can publish your latest book cost-effectively. Not only that but working with a digital children’s book printer enables you to make edits and changes on the fly, so the book your fans read is the book you envisioned.
