In search of… a book printer.

I am in need of a good, inexpensive custom photo book printer. I am working on a 75-125 page book for a photo essay. I want to do a very limited hardback print run, a more general softback print run, and of course, there will be an unlimited digital book run.

The digital book I have handled, but I’m looking for a printer for the hardback and softback versions.

I’ve looked at instantpublisher.com and their prices are great, and I can print in runs as small as 25 books. However, I have no idea what their quality is like.

I’ve looked at blurb.com and a few others, and though I have an idea what their quality is like, their costs are 2 to 3 times what instantpublisher is charging.

So I ask you, the denizens of blog-space, what do you recommend? I know quite a few of you photographers have published books. Who did you use, and what was the experience like?

Scott
