"I found your website when I went looking for a book publisher to print my second children's book. I appreciate the quality, fast service, economical prices and kind, thoughtful customer service reps. I feel like writing more books since publishing is now an exciting part of the process. Thank you for making this a joy instead of a daunting, frustrating task. "
Stephanie A. (Illinois)
"I had an excellent experience with 48 Hour Books. The service was beyond exceptional, as those working on my project allowed me to make several last-minute changes that probably would have not been allowed at any other company. The work was completed in a very reasonable time frame, the pricing was competitive, and the finished product (Letters to Lila, by Dan Baumgart) was phenomenal. For anyone wishing to get published, I would recommend 48 Hr Books. Thank you for your professionalism, dedication to quality, timeliness, and friendly staff."
Robert Baumgart (Michigan)
"I cannot say enough wonderful things about 48 Hour Books!!! I ordered 100 hardcover books and got 25 free, which is a nice feeling. Also, my deepest thanks to April, Brittany, Kelly, and Jessica. These ladies are MARVELOUS to work with!!! I'm only good up to a point with computers. They solved my problems with their expertise. They are also great communicators. I have recommended 48 Hour Books in my book and have told my friends and associates how wonderful these ladies are. Self-publishing has been enjoyable thanks to these ladies. The books look great!!! This company is honest and their customer service is second to none!!!!! I will recommend 48 Hour books to the world!"
Michael Wagner (Texas)
"I just received my shipment of my book. The books are beautiful. With this being my first book to author, I feel like it is a major step forward into fulfilling God's plan in my life. Thank you for all you assistance and patience with me as we worked through my mistakes. I could not have done it without you. It's been a pleasure working with you. I will contact you again, when I have my next book ready for print. Blessings."
Linda Conrey (Tennessee)
"I am so pleased with your service! The staff was very helpful and the books look so professional. I received them first thing in the morning on the very day they said. I will be using your services again and again. For a self publisher, 48hr books is a god-send."
Lynette Hammond (Pennsylvania)
"I just received my order of 125 total books from 48 Hr Books. The books are excellently done. In looking for a printer to do this job, I contacted local printers and considered various online companies. In my review, 48 Hr Books stood out amongst all the rest, at least in regards to their claimed reasonable price, expertise, extensive customer-help, and timeliness. I wasn't sure if they could live up to all their claims, but they did. I definitely will use 48 Hr Books for other printings of my books in the future. In a world filled with organizations that don't deliver on high claims of quality, 48 Hr Books in my experience is Quality. As an author of a book on quality management ("In Search of Quality: Principles and Mechanisms"), I know rare Quality when I see it. I particularly liked the very clear, extensive guidelines on their website for every step involved in the process, including short, informative videos. I like to do most of the work myself, so actually enjoyed converting my existing e-book format into a PDF suitable for their printing of a book at my desired size. I also enjoyed producing my own cover PDFs. 48 Hr Books was super in putting it all quickly into print-ready electronic proofs, then sending overnight a hard-copy so I could see everything in final form, particularly the colors (which turned out just as I wanted them). Anyone is welcome to contact me for further information---Dan Lyle, Ph.D., founder and owner of LylePublishing.com (e-mail: [email protected]). Thanks, 48 Hr Books!"
Daniel Lyle (Oklahoma)
"The books arrived exactly on time. I haven't seen them yet, since I'm out-of-town currently. But my husband unpacked one and said it is fabulous. You have an amazing business, personalized, professional and so very accomodating. I can't believe the short turn-around timelines you are able to accomplish for such fine products. I am so very happy I learned of your company. There was nowhere else I could have printed my short-run book with the quality and timeliness you offer. Thank you forever."
Ruth Berry (California)
"Thank you for publishing my book. I am really happy with the final copy of my book. It was a pleasure working with you. I'll be more than happy to refer you to other potential customers. Staff was also really helpful. I would like to thank you, Brittany, for help and support. I am truly happy with the outcome."
Bogdan Kajmowicz (Illinois)
"From the moment I called and spoke with Jessica, she was professional, kind, helpful, understanding, efficient and empathetic. I must add that Lisa, your graphics person, was the very same way. From my heart and soul, thank you for your ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL STAFF. Please take good, good care of them!"
Jo Lena Johnson (Missouri)
"I'm working on a huge marketing campaign for the book, and it is selling quite well on Amazon. I'm very impressed with the work and expediency with which your business operates, and will most assuredly use your company to publish future titles of this, and other books! Thanks again for your wonderful work!!"
David Kennedy (Colorado)
"I don’t know where to begin. From the ease by which I found your website when I was contemplating publishing my own book, to the final shipment of my books, 48 Hr Books was there for me. When I was confused, there was someone to walk me through the steps, when I was frustrated, there was someone to encourage me, and when I was finally finished, there was someone who acted as though I did it all myself. My books exceeded my expectations in quality, condition, and appearance. They arrived right on time and I cannot express how beautiful they are. I am truly amazed by your company."
Teresa Graham (Texas)
"Thank you for your excellent work in printing my book. Your courteous and considerate professional staff proved helpful at every step of the process. My inquiries and alterations were always handled with patience and politeness."
Edward Lashley (California)
"Wow! I am so impressed with not only the quality of the work but the services as well. The book was just as awesome as I had hoped and when I realized I needed the book to arrive sooner, the staff at 48 Hour Books was so helpful in helping me change my order so that I received the books on time. If you are reading this and debating who to use to print your books, let me help you out. Use 48 Hour Books!"
Jordan Kolb (New Jersey)
"I received my book yesterday and they look wonderful. Very high quality work ... I was very impressed. This is the first time I created a book and had it put into book format, so I was a bit nervous. Working with this company was a wonderful experience for me ... Thank you! I want to say a special "Thank You" to Debbie and Kelly. They were both very, very helpful and patient with me and made sure I got exactly what I wanted ... they were terrific!! I would recommend 48HrBooks to anyone without reservation. If I ever write another book, you can believe that I will come to 48HrBooks. Thank you to everyone for making my book look beautiful ... you're a special group."
Caroline Seguin (Pennsylvania)
"Thank you for working so closely with me to get the books perfect! I have two book signings on Saturday and hope to email you over the weekend saying I sold out! Thank you again for everything!"
Jill S. (Pennsylvania)
"My "Don't Lose Hope (Your Miracle Is Coming)" books came to my doorstep on time and they were beautiful! The work you all do there is amazing!! Thank you for printing my first book. Due to your excellent work, people always ask who printed the books, and I am happy to say that it was 48HrBooks!! I know who I want to print all of our books from now on! Thank you very much for your awesome work! I am grateful that God sent me to you! God bless you all! "
Tamara C. (Ohio)
"Our books just arrived and they are amazing! In my seven years advising the literary magazine, you have given us by far the most cost-effective, quality product. I am so pleased, and my students are delighted at the professional appearance and clarity of the color pages. Thanks so much. You will certainly be hearing from us again next year."
Sean M. (Florida)
"My books just arrived and they are fabulous!!! I could not possibly be more pleased. I will recommend your service to everyone. I tried another website and the process was cumbersome and extremely expensive. Then I found you. Your price calculator right on the home page assured me I could afford what I was planning and the process was easy. Your staff communicated with me quickly and cheerily. I cannot say enough nice things about you! Thank you!"
Teresa W. (Waterford, CT)
"When I received my books, I must say I was totally impressed!! I found your website while surfing the internet for fast printers. Having no prior knowledge about your company or its existence, I must say that I was a bit skeptical, especially about the fast turnaround times indicated on your website. However, the books are impeccable, even though I submitted my files, received the proof, and had books printed and shipped out ALL ON THE SAME DAY!! Thanks so much for a "over-the-top" performance!!"
Angela M., Publisher (Virginia)
"There are no words to express how excited and pleased I was when I received my books (and yes I took pictures). Your staff is the best. They were patient when answering my fifty billion questions. I was even given pointers on how to improve things for my next book. My books arrived on time and looked wonderful. Everyone complimented me on the quality of the books and how professional they looked. 48HrBooks was my first and only choice. My book, "Tell Him", is a success. I am ready to place my second order. Thumbs up and keep up the good ... no, make that GREAT ... work!"
Deneen C. (New York)
"Another excellent job on my second mystery book. High quality in every respect, and the colors on the front cover made my artwork look even better than the original. Staff are so cordial and helpful, business with 48HrBooks is always a pleasure. "
Molly M. (Arizona)
"Thank you for all you did for us. The books are amazing! They are better than anything we expected. Your patience with me during the process and your customer service was something that will not only have me coming back for all my printing needs, but also a 48hrbooks ambassador to anyone looking for a company to have their books printed. When dealing with companies for the first time, especially online, you never know what you are going to get. You were everything you promised on your site and more. Thank you for helping my Dad get his book the way he wanted, it makes me look like a hero too for picking you!"
Paul G. (Massachusetts)
"I wanted to take the time to thank everyone with 48HrBooks for their efforts in completing my order ahead of time and with excellence. I was in charge of putting together a memorial book for a church's 50th anniversary. Initially, the vendor I was using to print the books pulled out with only 1 week left to complete the order. I called your staff and they immediately jumped on the task and completed it early! The books look wonderful and I have received complimentary feedback from all of the viewers including the church and some close friends.
I could not have pulled it off without you. Thanks Kelly, Leila, Michelle, Debbie and all of the others who pulled together to ensure my books would be a dazzling success."
Carmenita G. (Texas)
"A few weeks ago I ordered my second book through 48HrBooks, and was again very pleased with the polished end product. I still don't know how you do what you do - the turnaround time is fantastic and your price is the best in the market! (Yes, I checked around). You truly are a gift to the self-publishing writer and I thank you."
Leah W. (Virginia)
"The books look amazing and came exactly in the time I was told!!!! I am very pleased and plan on using 48hrbooks for my next work. : )"
Brynna H. (Michigan)
"Thank you so much. I must say, your companies customer service has been IMPECCABLE! Thank you for making this process so convenient, pleasant, and so well handled."
Tammy S. (Virginia)
"I am very impressed by the service provided by 48HrBooks. Yes, real people do answer the phones at once and are knowledgable, patient, and extremely helpful. The staff also respond very quickly and thoroughly to emails. The company web site is excellent. It is user-friendly and explains very clearly exactly how to prepare a manuscript for publication. I highly recommend using it to the letter before submitting material. I did, and had very few problems in getting my book into print. This is the first time I have used the services of this company but it will not be the last. I wish it had a branch in Canada - there's nothing anywhere nearly as good here."
Leith S. (Alberta, Canada)
"I was a little skeptical about the claims that 48-hour books makes on the web site since I am out of state and was a little worried that 48-hour books might not deliver. The prices were so reasonable that I was afraid that it might be “too good to be true.” Was I wrong! I received my shipment of books on-time and my perfect-bound books were printed - well - perfectly! The artwork was crisp and looks great! Totally professional, wonderful service."
Irene S. New York
"I am truly humbled and grateful for the services, support, and time I received from 48 hour books and their staff. The week of March 28, 2011 was a stressful week for my team and I. However, each representative I spoke to on the phone not only reassured me but worked with me to reach the deadline. The consistent response after the approval of my files and the integrity with my payment; again I am humbled and will continue to recommend and praise 48 hour books. I will be using their services in the up-coming week and have extreme confidence I will be provided with the same great service and support."
Kamilah M.
"I just wanted to thank you guys again for all of your help. My mother recently had a stroke and it really threw me for a loop. I really appreciate you handling the book for me and working with my tight timeline. It will not be forgotten. I'm a customer for life!"
Nikki O. (Maryland)
"I originally chose your company because your prices are so affordable and I could speak to a live representative throughout the process of publishing my book. I wasn't sure how helpful or prompt customer service might be, but at least I knew it was available.
It turned out that your customer service was excellent! I was able to speak to my representative by phone or by email quickly and easily. The process was made less daunting by the input I received.
When the hardcover books arrived they exceeded my expectation for quality. I would highly recommend your company to anyone."
Renee Duka (Arizona)
"After being totally dissatisfied with "Blurb", I can't tell you how helpful and nice your staff has been. 48 Hr Books is easily accessible for questions, and always respond to e-mails or messages in a timely manner. I will definitely use your service again, and highly recommend it to others. I have owned my own company with 80+ employees, and so many times you're only told about the negative. In this case, I have nothing but praise for your staff, in particular Michelle. I estimated my time spent on my deceased husband's memoirs at over 1,500 hours. Michelle, made "A BIG Tribute" come to fruition. She was helpful, courteous, and most importantly, patient with my book process. You should be very proud of your employees. Again, thank you for providing such excellent service! "
Robin G. (Missouri)
"We received our books and are very pleased with them. Your service (and help with our project) was great. It looks like we may need more of the books printed. We will highly recommend you to others interested in publishing projects, and plan to use you again for our projects."
Dave Sharrock (Canada)
"I don't know what to say! The books are gorgeous. We are thrilled. I practically hugged the UPS guy!"
Colleen G. (New Jersey)
"It's nice to call and know that you're going to get a real live person to talk to on the other end! It's the little things like that that make working with you so nice! We are all so pleased with the book, especially the pictures!"
David M. (Kentucky)
"I'm very happy with the books you did for me last week. If you get requests for references, please share my name and email for potential customers."
Robert B. (Ohio)
"You have done an excellent job. I am very, very pleased."
M.J. K. (Florida)
"The good price and incredible turnaround are very appealing."
Jim R. (Pennsylvania)
"Amazing job! Book looks fantastic and cant wait to get this one out the door! Thank you so much to your entire wonderful staff. You all did a great job!"
Steven S. (California)
"48 Hour Books is truly better than the rest. Not only have they made my dreams a reality, they have done so in the easiest, most painless and affordable way imaginable. Like many others, in the beginning I suspected their claims were too good to be true. I imagined that somewhere there was going to a catch, but I was quickly proven wrong. Easy, affordable and painless are only a few of the adjectives I could employ here. Professional also comes to mind, and the level of professionalism and quality when paired with the simplicity is truly unbelievable. My books are gorgeous and appear no less legitimate than any paperback you’d find at a bookstore. They even printed bar codes for my ISBN for only 20 extra dollars. Furthermore, I should add that their communication was prompt, dependable and friendly. Any issues I had with the proof were corrected with ease. If you are an author just starting out with self-publishing, there is no better or faster way. Go 48 Hour Books!! "
