Unlike other website companies that promote "quick and easy" ordering online and "24 hour book printing", we prefer the personal approach. Whether you are a first-time or a seasoned author, we understand that you want someone
who will work one-on-one with you, guiding you through each phase of your project to ensure everything is done properly, your way. You've spent a tremendous amount of time in preparing your manuscript, so the need to rush the printing process should be the least important factor. Our graphic designers will work closely with you along the way, checking your files and helping with layout and design as needed. Many times we can prevent potential problems long before the books are printed and bound. And before production begins, we provide a hard-copy proof for your approval, showing you exactly how your completed books will look.

We keep copies and records of all our past printing and binding projects, making reorders as simple as a phone call.

"The one thing I am certain about is that the book I am now writing will be brought to print at Mechling. From the time my wife, Ro, and I were greeted at the door for the very first time to picking up my last order, each and every step of the process was personally overseen and important, not only to me, but to every employee at Mechling Bookbindery. Even a blind squirrel gets an acorn once in a while, and I certainly got mine. We'll see you in mid to late May to give you the draft of my next book.They seem like such small words, but have so very much meaning--thank you!"
