Printing a Recipe Book Cheaply

I am trying to put together a recipe book for a family reunion. Does anyone know a company that would print them for a low cost?

Try a print shop like a Kinko or Staples.

How about doing it yourself. Print a master copy of the cookbook and then take it to a copy machine and make your copies. You can print the covers on your own printer. Then take them to Office Max or to Kinko's and have them bind them with a plastic binder. It will cost about a dollar per book for the binding. Also remember to keep your master copy as you will find that you will get requests for your cookbook all the time. From people who could not make the reunion, other people who just want a copy. I do cookbooks for my family every Christmas. I have 5 children and others who look forward to it each year. I hope this will help. You could also put them in a notebook and then pages could be added each year at the reunion. You could also add picture pages with family Members. Good luck and have fun!

The best way to go about this depends on the quantity you want if you just want one or two Kinko's or your printer and binding yourself would be your best bet.

If you want up to 25-200 copies will help you get a professionally printed copy of your book for a much better price than Kinko's or printing yourself.

If you want upwards of 200 books give a try as they specialize in cookbook publishing and have many options to choose from to personalize your cookbook.
