Printing beautiful books is what we do. In fact, it’s the only thing we do.
Gone are the days of “speculative” print-runs when publishers printed thousands of copies to get to an affordable unit-cost. This practice often left the publisher with too much cash sitting in a warehouse, only to pulp tons of unsold books years later. At Gasch, you only print what you need, when you need it. We utilize state-of-the-art digital book printing equipment to produce high-quality one-color and four-color text and covers—from black ink printed on uncoated stock to vibrant four-color images on coated paper to gorgeous covers and jackets with multiple laminate finishes to choose from.
Text, covers, and cases are printed on an array of Canon and HP toner and inkjet presses that print quality one-color and four-color images on a range of uncoated and coated papers. Covers can be coated with either gloss, matte, or soft-touch lamination. Foil stamping is also an option at Gasch.
Printed book blocks and covers are transferred to our bindery where a variety of binding methods are used to make finished books. Gasch operates several adhesive binding machines to make both softcover and hardcover books with either EVA or PUR glue. We use a Bourg booklet maker to produce saddle stitch books and a Sterling Coilmaster machine to create books bound with plastic coil.

Also known as case bound, this distinguished and durable style can be outfitted with a custom dust jacket.
Generally referred to as perfect bound, this is Gasch Printing’s most common and cost-effective option for everyone from first-time authors to veteran publishing houses.
Staples at the fold allow your book to be held open easily for page counts of 8 to 120.
