Free Comic Book Printing Day 2
Jeffries Printing been printing the best in Australian comics since 2008 and in 2016 we’re going to do something new to help Australian comic creators get their books into print.
On Wednesday 26th October 2016 we’re holding our second Free Comic Book Printing Day.
And that’s just what it sounds like – we will print 25 copies of your book and ship them to you anywhere in Australia for free.
The books can be in colour or black and white and anywhere from four to forty eight pages plus cover. They can be A5, US Standard Comic (170x260) or A4 or any size in between.
We’ll be saddle stitching all the book portrait format and using 170gsm Silk Art for the covers and 113gsm Silk Art for the internals.
We’re not assessing the books so they can be about anything you want and to any standard – if you’re an experienced hand wanting to top up a back issue, great. If you’re a first-timer and want to see how your stuff looks in print – even better. The only limits to the content are listed in the Ts&Cs below.
There are a couple of restrictions – we’re going to limit the day to only 32 print runs, because that’s about what we can do in one standard shift and because we have to put some kind of lid on how many we do.
And you can only submit one book per creative team or publisher.
How do you submit your books?
At 10am on Wednesday 19th October we’re going to put up a page here on our website where you can submit your artwork and details
The first 32 people will get the their books printed free – and if more than 32 people submit we’ll let you know if you made it or not on Thursday 20th October via email.
If you have any questions, ask them over on our FaceBook page here.
