Whether it’s part of training someone for a job, an add-on at a conference, or a holiday gift, placing a book in someone’s hands sends a powerful message. You can make it unique by presenting your audience or clients with a customized copy of a book created specifically for them, one that amplifies and reinforces the message you want to send.
Providing a customized copy of a book is a great way to stand out and leave a lasting impression. We can add sponsor or presenter logos for a conference, a quote pulled from the book that speaks to the goals of a specific team, an author signature, or a personalized note to leave a lasting impression.
Have something else in mind? Give us a call, and we’ll make it happen. We’re a small and flexible company perfectly suited to execute one-off projects. The customization possibilities are nearly endless.
The following customizations are available on any in-print title. In addition to the options below, we are happy to work with customers to create new and interesting book customizations. If you can imagine it, we will help you create it!
A thick, cardstock band scored to wrap around the outside of the dust jacket for sponsor logos, information about an event, or other details. The one-time design fee is required for this option.
A bookmark inserted into the book to showcase sponsor logos, information about an event, or other details. Standard size is 2x7”. Printed on thick cardstock paper. Can be one-sided or double-sided.

Can I put my company’s logo on my books?
How long will it take to customize my books?
Custom orders have a minimum lead time of three weeks from order placement to delivery. Actual turnaround time depends on the customization, quantity, and production details of your particular project.
Do you have designers to help me bring my customization project to life?
Yes, we do. Design services are available for $125 per customization. You simply supply the imagery (logos or other graphic elements) and copy, and our in-house designer will create three original concepts for your consideration. Once you have selected a design concept, you have three rounds of revisions available. We will also happily accept your organization’s style guidelines at the beginning of the process so we can create something that meets all your organization’s criteria.
I have an idea that I don’t see on your price list; do you do any other customizations?
Yes, we love trying something new! If you have an idea for customizing a book, get in touch and we’ll make sure we know exactly what you’re looking for; we can then provide pricing and turnaround time.
If I provide my own printed collateral, can you include or use this to customize my books?
Yes, we can. Depending on the circumstances of your book order, there may be a small handling fee associated with using your own collateral.
Can I return customized books?
Unfortunately, no. The personalized nature of customized books means they cannot be restocked or resold to other customers.
