Headquartered in Los Angeles, Beaconstar was started in 2003 by two partners with extensive background in the printing industry.
The main focus of Beaconstar has always been straight forward: to provide savings on printing for our U.S. customers by printing them overseas in China.
Beaconstar has offices in Shanghai, SHenzhen, Changsha, and Taipei, each performing tasks relevant to the needs of our U.S. customers.
Printing soft cover books overseas can yield very good savings at quantity starting at 500 copies.
Printing hard cover books overseas can start at as small as 250 copies.
Best way to take advantage of the savings from overseas printing is to optimize customization.
The more customization you have, the more money you save!
Book printing is our specialty. We help authors and small publishers to realize their dreams!
Technical name for hard cover books is "case bound books."
Case bound books offer the highest degree of protection and value for your intellectual work. The optional slip case will make both protection and value even higher.
Case bound books have the highest strength in binding. All pages are sewn in multiple page signatures and glued for the best binding strength possible.
We offer a very high degree of customization on coil or wire bound journals.
For applications where portability and disposability is more important, booklet is the best format.
The maximum number of pages in a booklet should not exceed 72 pages.
Hard-to-make custom binders is one of our specialties.
We manufacture many children's board books.
