How to Order

Bring your story and characters to life using the comic book printing services available from SLB Printing.

We understand that Comic Book Printing is the last step in a long creative process.  At SLB Printing, we have helped artists & writers, professional and amateur, young and old, bring their creative dreams to life by producing their comic books on several types of paper and cover weight combinations. With our high speed digital and offset presses, we aim to achieve the highest printing quality possible for you. We are here to accommodate all standard sizes and we offer several printing and binding options.  Call SLB today for your short run comic book printing needs.

We are able to produce high quality comic books  and finish them with style. A final touch like saddle stitch binding or perfect binding will make your product stand out!

Comic Book Printing can be done using either digital or offset printing processes. The decision of offset or digital printing depends on the amount of comic books you need and how much time you can allow for production. When you need short run of comic books with a quick turnaround, digital is your best choice. Offset printing is a great, cost effective solution for printing booklets in larger quantities.

Perfect binding is now available on comic books up to 8.5″ x 11″. We can perfect-bind books from 10 pages (5 sheets of paper) to 2 inches thick . We offer matte and gloss stock available in text and cover weights along with a 50# newsprint option if you’re looking for an old style appearance.  Keep in mind, newsprint is not long lasting and will turn yellow with exposure to air and light.

Check out our YouTube Channel for more information on same day, short run, comic book printing. We know how tricky it can be to design a print ready file. When submitting your file to our pre-press staff, full color pages should be in CMYK format, images should be at least 300dpi, and should have a minimum 1/8″ bleed (see videos).
