Our books are the result of handmade craftsmanship combined with the most innovative and proven machinery available.
The first question and most important question that you must ask your book printer:
Do you use ink jet printers or toner-based printers?
Here’s the difference:
Inkjet printing is usually sold as Standard Color or Economy Color. It uses a technology where ink is literally sprayed on the page. Think of hundreds of inkjet heads in rows. As the paper passes beneath, these heads spray various amounts of color to build up the ink coverage. This is definitely not recommended for any books with color pictures or graphics. It’s virtually impossible to get crisp, precise photo-quality images. Inkjet printing is a low-cost printing process usually reserved for cheap advertisement printing like supermarket coupons.
Toner based printing is usually sold as Premium Color. Keystone color printing is 100% toner-based printing. We utilize Ricoh Pro presses in our shop, the best of the best in new color printing technology. From the first page of a job to the last, you can expect consistent, vibrant color. A new chemical toner formulation promotes high charging stability, and a new image transfer belt material optimizes the fill and appearance of each pixel. The result is superior, photo-quality image printing on every page.
Our formula for great custom book printing is very simple: Keystone Digital Press is a book printing company staffed by print professionals utilizing the world's best book printing and binding equipment. While every individual book publishing project is different, the results are always the same:
