Why the printing quantity affect price so large?
From the table below, the printing quantity decide the unit price and total price, while the number of printing in the range of 0-3000, the unit price lower trend is very obvious, reaching more than 5000 points, add printing quantity, unit price lower than 1000-2000 price. And the total price is always increases with the increase in the number of printing, but increased the minimum range from 0-3000.Of course. Buyer donot need consider these factors if you have requirements on the quantity.
Why the book printing minimum order quantity is 500pcs
In general, our minimum 500pcs per book. Because we print via large machines not digital printing. The less quantity will lead to unit price much higher, less than 500pcs is not reasonable and economical choice for your business.In the process of the book printing, some costs are fixed that will not be reduced because of reduction in the number of printing. For example, the design cost, films, proofing, plate-making fee, etc.These costs will no any difference for print 1pc or 10000pcs. Therefore the more quantity you order, then lower price you will get.
Why different printing company different price?

2:Ink (domestic ink, imported ink, the brand ink) The ink quality will affect the color brightness and vivid; Identify the smell of ink, if smelled bad then really not good, although price cheaper a lot. We never choose poor quality ink. All our ink for book printing,catalog printing, booklet printing, magazine printing,etc all used imported brand ink.
3:Printing machines are very important part. The printing machines new or old will affect printing quality finally. That is why some clients said other suppliers are cheaper offer, but later after they look their factory, wow, all are old devices from last century.
