Book Cover Design

With your input and ideas communicated to our professional graphic artists, we will create a visually stunning, full-color custom cover design for your book. Your cover needs to “wow” potential shoppers into purchasing your book, since it is often the only thing a buyer will see at a quick glance. Your book needs to stand out among the sea of other books on the shelves, and a top-notch cover is one way to achieve that.

Warehousing and Delivery

When your book is completed, there is no additional charge to drop-ship to up to 10 different locations. We do not charge packaging or handling, only the actual cost of USPS or FedEx Ground delivery. We also offer a long-term plan to store your books by the case or by the pallet in our warehouse and send out orders as they come in from you for your customers and replenish your supply one carton at a time.

Don’t take our word for it.

I had been considering writing a book for a long time and had taken notes for many years. After nine months of pulling it together, a friend of mine suggested that I contact Mennonite Press. I only wish that I had contacted them earlier! I highly recommend the staff at Mennonite Press. They are very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly and their response to questions is quick and accurate. I am very happy and grateful for their support in helping me achieve a long-time goal.

Mennonite Press has beautifully published our children’s books. Every detail we envisioned is in these beautifully printed and illustrated books because of the diligence of Mennonite Press. They listened and adapted every detail until it was just as we envisioned it. My dream of becoming a children’s book author to inspire children to be their best selves, loving God and man, has come true!

What do you do when you’ve written a book that you would like to self-publish? That question sent me to Mennonite Press for the answers. I didn’t expect to ever sell my first 200 books, yet, 7 years later, I have just had my 6th reprinting! Now on my way to having over 1200 copies out! Thank you Mennonite Press for the wonderful success that you’ve helped me find!!!

Are you a first-timer at trying to get a batch of words from a piece of paper onto pages in a book … then call Mennonite Press and ask for Judy Entz.  With a significant dose of trepidation, that was me with Cat Tales.  With MPI, it’s a team effort of taking your infant project and refining it through their decades of experience into your most prized possession – a book with ‘your’ name on it!  Judy was an absolute jewel to serve as a tour guide throughout the pain free process of providing a per book cost analysis, to design, to marketing ideas … and so much in between. Judy’s the best and Mennonite Press will always be my go-to printing/publishing outlet. Their team is professional to the highest degree.
