Printing a flash/ reference book

Recommended Posts

I have been considering printing a flash book sometime in the future. Thought maybe somebody here might know of a company that provides good quality and prices on for a spiral bound book. I've done some research on my own but I figured I'd ask here before I decided. If you've made one, know of a company or even just have advice on the topic I'd appreciate the info. Looking to make it approx 30 pages front and back (black and white), with only the cover in color and maybe a clear sheet over the cover.

Trying to keep cost low so I could keep the sale price low. I plan on donating 50+% of the profits to CHOC Hospital in Orange CA. Also planning on having a page asking that if somebody tattoos a piece out of it that they'll donate a % of their profit to the hospital or any charity. On that page I will also ask them to credit the original artist in hopes to get better artists than me to donate a drawing in exchange for the advertisement the book will provide.

Like I said probably only going to be 30 pages and I have a couple people interested so there's not much room. If you're interested in having something (big or small) in it though Id be glad to hear from you. You can check out some of the drawings ill be putting in it on my IG "j3rkbag". Thanks everyone

    • I'd still call your doctor and ask their opinion.  I'm betting that they might advise against it, you know docs and liability.  But, if I were in the same position, really wanted it and was in good health, I'd probably go ahead and do it. My wife's an RN and I just asked her.  She said that she wouldn't think it would be a problem as long as you keep any appendectomy incision bandaged and clean your tattoo as recommended.
    • Hey everyone, I just had a laparoscopic appendectomy 8 days ago. Everything went well. There were no complications. Normally I wouldn't consider getting tattooed for awhile due to possible immune system problems. The thing is, one of my favorite artists is in town next weekend. He moved from Mass to Brooklyn and if I don't go see him next week I may have to wait a year or so before he's around again. I just want to get a small piece of Dan Higgs flash on my arm nowhere near the site of the surgery. Do you guys think this would be ok or am I putting myself in danger? I know people are going to say "ask your doctor" but I'd like the advice of people who actually have and know about tattoos. Thanks in advance. 
    • Hey @Decay You have a lovely new tattoo.  Tattooing isn't science, it's art and you can't set a clock by how long a tattoo will take. Your artist, who I assume you trust to tattoo you, will always give you a best guess. It may take longer; it may take less time.   You do realize how much goes into tattooing, right? Your artist has to come up with a design, a piece of art, from whatever concept you have in your head and translates that into a tattoo on your skin. There's design, drawing, and setup among other things that happen way before the needles hit your skin. If you feel like you are being ripped off over what you think is 30 minutes, you need to think long and hard if tattooing is for you. Enjoy the ride! Let go a little and you will have a better experience.  I have never seen a menu of prices and that concept will not serve you well on your tattoo journey. Where do you live where you haggle over everything? And I really hope that you tipped your artist.
