"Everything I eat has been proved by some doctor or other to be a deadly poison, and everything I don't eat has been proved to be indispensable for life. But I go marching on."--George Bernard Shaw

How much does it cost to print a family cookbook?

You have a couple options to get your cookbook printed.  We would love to print your cookbook for you!  The minimum print order is only 5 copies (most other printers require at least 100).  The cost of each cookbook depends on how many pages it has.  Most cookbooks average two recipes per page.

*Pricing is based on two recipes per page.  If your recipes are longer, there may be an additional charge.  Finished book size 5 1/2" x 8 1/2"

Another option is to have a local printer or even a Kinko's print your cookbook for you.  With your paid membership you can download a full high-resolution PDF file of your cookbook.  Take it to your printer and have whatever amount you like printed.  Or you can just print one copy on your computer and put it in a nice 3-ring binder!

Once you have determined you are ready to publish your family cookbook, our automatic publishing system will walk you through each step of the printing process from writing a dedication and thanking the contributors, to selecting the size, binding and cover art to make your family cookbook something for all to treasure.
