Heidelberg Graphics' Services
We work with authors and publishers turning manuscripts into professionally finished books. We assign ISBNs and Library of Congress control numbers, listings in Books in Print and other databases, and copyright registration assistance. We have two other imprints: Stansbury Publishing and Memoir Books. For examples of titles Heidelberg Graphics published and produced for others please click Publications at this website. We treat everyone we work with the same way we want to be treated. Authors published under our imprints are paid royalties.
Heidelberg Graphics does short and long runs in paperback and hardcover, other bindings, print on-demand, ePubs, Kindle books, and PDF files. Our titles are sold directly and through some bookstores, our national distributors Baker and Taylor, Follett, Ingram Books, various library jobbers, and Internet sellers including Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Google Books.

Heidelberg Graphics derived its name from the highest quality printing presses in the world made in Germany. We contract with trade printers who specialize and have the ultimate equipment to fulfill your needs with their highly trained personnel. You can depend on over 45 years of Heidelberg Graphics' experience to provide you with the results you deserve.
For print-on-demand books we work with the most up-to-date digital printers. For longer runs, highest quality color, Smyth sewn and other bindings, and nonstandard trim sizes or specialty papers we may may use our offset printers. We do commercial work for publications such as Smokejumper magazine.
Layout and design
Heidelberg Graphics does its own design, layout, and formatting to the manuscripts we accept. We design most book covers in-house and use northern California freelance artists for others. We also accept most work from those who do their own design or want to share their input. Artwork and photos are individually processed and enhanced before placement into our layouts. Proofs are provided at various stages until the book is given its final OK. Authors and publishers are welcome to become involved throughout our prepress process.
Heidelberg Graphics flight checks all files to assure perfect output of its layouts for the press.
Heidelberg Graphics makes most types of bar codes including Bookland EAN for International Standard Book Numbers (ISBN), UPC, and Code 39.
We can talk about your project at any stage and help you avoid unnecessary work. Please phone (530) 342-6582.
