11. After several more months of design, production and planning I sent all the graphic files electronically to the printer. Hitting that “send” key was pretty heart-stopping! They prepared some sample pages for me to review the color, quality and trim and sent them express delivery. That was an exciting day!
12. Then the printer completed the full run of books, did the bindery, and soon after that the pre-shipment books arrived. Next, the container ship from Singapore was scheduled and I handled the paperwork and coordinated the arrival to the US port, and delivery to my local warehouse. What an exciting and wonderful publishing journey!
