Book Monograph Printing that looks as fine as the art itself
Lets say you’re a Renaissance (Wo)man thriving and striving in New York City. Here, most people are. If nothing else, NYC is mecca to those of the hyphenated professional persuasion. You’ve got your forever-in-style Super Thick, Super Black Business Cards in your wallet and in pockets across town. You’ve got Stationery sets for each business endeavor, and your personal Letterheads are whipping out of your studio space faster than springtime hummingbirds lit up on B12.
So you’ve come to this Midtown Manhattan Print Shop for more in depth printing:
You’ve already got your custom Lookbook printed to showcase this season’s blushing fashion collection. All those poems you wrote during that tedious spell of somnambulistic lucid dreaming are saddle stitched into a sexily-slim self-published volume of poetry. And sure enough, those trying times were worth it because that indie-press letterpress Book is collecting all the Etsy clicks Bushwick has to offer; your friend at The Strand is going to feature it on one of those display tables they removed all those pesky book cases to make room for. Naturally, the aforementioned are passion projects so you support those endeavors with a robust career in the artisanal candle industry—that glossy Marketing Booklet elaborating the latest scent profiles has got you into over half the retailers on your list. Finally, your midnight gig showing penthouse listings to international oligarchs without a fixed time-zone has added more zeros to your bank account than you can manage: all thanks to the illustrative power of those Real Estate Promotional Books & Deluxe Floor Plan Printing you had your agency draw up.
Now with all that bank you can finally outsource the responsibilities of your multi-level cottage industry and focus your hyphenate-hustle on a career in the arts. Full time! Performance, illustration, interactive gallery installations, drawing, photography, masterful printmaking, graphic design, painting—thy destiny is an interdisciplinary one.
SPEC IT OUT
Whether you are looking to commemorate a gallery show, an artist, an entire movement, or your own portfolio, Publicide has the custom book printing services for all your fine art printing needs.

Once you have developed the content for your Monograph printing with your go-to graphic designer, send us the PDF and we will begin the process of bringing your book to life.
While leather bound hardcovers serve more gravitas than Guernica, we’re fond of all binding options. Saddle stitching or a perfect bind will demonstrate the enviable qualities of Neenah Folding Board, or any other of our durably deluxe Cover Stocks. Silky to the touch Touché paper is sure to entice anyone flipping through your work. Few can resist the chic 1990s allure of the Spiral Bind. To stun all onlookers do as Marina Abramovic would, make the stark choice of tone on tone printing with White Ink on white paper, or black Foil Stamping on Premium Black Paper. For a similar effect with added dimension, go forth with a blind Emboss. For a full trip, select a Holographic Foil as your endpaper and slip in…
It’s true, we never miss an opportunity to judge a book by its cover—however, the contents are key. Make sure your design file is set to a boundary-pushing DPI for Full Color digital printing with troupe l’oeil results that evoke the [insert Florentine Chapel fresco here]. Choose Cotton text paper for superior pigment registration. Linen and Vellum stock evoke the organic nature of Kiki Smith. Eggshell varnishes add a sensible sheen to the page. Spot UV Gloss treatments add a glassy finish that resonates beyond the surface– if you don’t believe us, ask Jeff Koons.
It’s a world of books! Call yourself Immersed and email our NYC Print Shop to get the ink running on your next run of Monograph Printing.
