Hey! I was wondering if any of you knows of a website that can print your own little artbook, for cheap. I plan on making a 30ish pages books with chicks, but I have no clue where to start (except drawing chicks!)

Thanks in advance for your advices / experiences!

I know this is a little late...but we are currently doing ours through Blurb. There is the sell online option, and you could eventually set your own price too! There is a more professional route of book printing called Global PSD. You said you wanted cheap though, so go to the blurb route! make sure you order one first though, to see if that is what you like...because the color comes out a little differently sometimes! Here is some of our progress for our book we are making through blurb.

I'll throw in my 2 cents with Blurb.com as well. Their stuff has always come out beautifully for me.

I did a few on a site called Blurb a few months back, gave me plenty of options and was easy to use

I use this for single issue comic printing and have never been disappointed with their quality (beware the print time is a month though- they're slow!). They do trades as well. Depending on color or b/w and size, you can get it pretty cheap. Here's their calculator for you to see page count to color pages to b/w per unit prices: [link] Good luck!

Lulu.com is a self-publishing company with a wizard through which you can construct your book and sell it. They print for free and the customer service is great! I published my novel, The Prophecy Writer, through them.

The books from them also print beautifully, with clear covers and crisp words/images.
I would highly recommend them.

Well, not really that cheap, but I've made my artbook at blurb.com and the quality is really good! The good side is that you can sell online without any hassle.
It's best to use In Design but the blurb software is okish. I paid a graphic designer to make sure it was really professional.

There is blurb.com and lulu.com, which do great jobs, but might still be too pricy.

I recommend Ka-blam printing:
They don't have hard cover printing currently, but their paperback printing is about $5 for a full-color, 30 page book.

You can get books printed at Adoramapix for about 34 bucks for 40 pages. Not really cheap though . . . But the books look nice. It's something you have to design yourself on their website.

Yeah I was looking for a little cheaper, I might want to sell the thing, not for profit, just for fun, but still don't want to pay this much. I'll look into it though, thanks! :)

Self-published zine, anyone? Sorry if I'm not much of a help.

I wish you could get your art printed by Alberto Ruiz, but he usually scheduals in smaller client list..... I might need to check out some people who got their work done by him and see if I can get him in touch with you.

Haha, I wished too. But I think you have to get a little more notoriety to be published ;D
I was thinking more of a little paperback book that I could sell myself online or in conventions. I don't really know how that works in fact. But thanks for looking into for me, really appreciate it :)
