The SharedInk Advantage
Complete Control of the Process
Unlike many online photo book companies, SharedInk does every step of the book making process. This allows us to have complete control of the quality as well as provide industry leading customer service.
If we notice a low resolution or other image problem in your book you can provide an updated image and we can reprint the page for a nominal charge. This saves our customers hundreds of dollars each month. Plus, we answer the phone!
All of our books are handcrafted in our bindery, and every page is 100% inspected because we know how closely your clients will be looking at your books. Our pages are stitched together, so they aren’t going to fall out in a few years like glued books. Our customers trust our quality so much that many of them have us ship our books directly to their clients.
We use only the highest quality products. Even our least expensive linen books use a high quality linen imported from Italy. For our leather books we actually hand select hides.
Who We Are
Experts in Printing
We don’t farm out our printing to other companies and our press operators are highly trained printers. Our digital presses are cleaned and calibrated before every SharedInk run, ensuring high quality and very consistent printing from one day (or month) to the next.
Experts in Book Binding
SharedInk was an innovator in the one-off print on demand books when we started making books in 2003. Our hand crafted book binding process was developed by two guys, one a second generation book binder, the other a journeyman book binder that learned the craft in an apprentice program in England.
100% Wind Powered
We care about the the world we live in. To do our part all of the electricity we use is generated by the wind. Sure, it costs us a little more, but we care.
Women Owned and Family Operated Business
SharedInk is located in Portland, Oregon. The company is owned by three sisters and is run by another family member.
SharedInk is part of the Premier Press family.
