We’ve been in the book printing business for over six decades and don’t plan on slowing down any time soon! Our stellar book printing team has produced hundreds of stunning softcover and hardcover books for authors just like you.

Our Self Publishing Services

Softcover Book Printing

Choose from an array of different binding types at First Choice Books. These include: perfect binding, saddle stitch binding, coil binding, lay flat smyth sewn binding, library binding and more!

Hardcover Book Printing

We offer Smyth Sewn binding which will last for generations. Book pages are printed in sheets, and then folded and stitched into the binding for maximum durability. We then bind the book in fabric and stamp the title in gold or silver or some other colour. Or, for a modern look, we can print a full-colour cover. Ask about our dust-jackets too!

Thesis Binding

Congratulations on finishing your thesis! The next step is to get it bound – we offer black & white, and full colour printing on smooth white 70lb paper, with a variety of binding options including linen and leather-style fabrics.

Metallic foil stamping

At First Choice Books, we proudly offer a new laminating method to add metallic foil to your book cover. Want your book title in solid gold or silver? We can do that! Or pick out details of an illustration in metallic red, green, blue or holographic foil – the possibilities are endless.  We can send you out a sample in the form of a very useful bookmark.

Book and Cover Design

Our design team can take your manuscript and cover ideas and turn them into a beautiful book that will appeal to readers. We take care of all the details, including technical specifications, image placement, margins, fonts, headers, footers, paragraph styling, and more. Your book’s design will be gorgeous and affordable!

Why Start Book Printing With First Choice Books?

If you’re like most of our clients, the first thing you probably thought when you landed on our website was “why should I pick them?”. It’s a valid question!

Why, in a world so saturated with book printing and self publishing Canada companies,
should you spend your money with us?

Our answer to that is simple: PASSION

We’ve been in the book publishing business for over 60 years, and you don’t get that kind of track record by just sort of liking what you do. You need to love it. And rest assured, our team is absolutely, 100% head over heels with the process of book printing and self publishing. We wake up each morning excited to come in to the office, and leave every evening wondering where the day went!

Self publishing Canada is exciting to us

Because it offers us the ability to connect millions of people all over the country with new and exciting ideas. We get to introduce them to novel viewpoints, interesting voices, and material that pushes them to become better people. This, at its core, is what keeps us on our relentless course of self-improvement and self publishing passion, and the more books we print, the more we want to print.

In addition to our robust love for anything & everything self publishing Canada, we provide customer service that goes above & beyond the call of duty. Thus, our results are beautiful, affordable, and fast (our turnaround times will have you wondering whether our team is composed entirely of book-loving robots!)

Therefore, if you’re an author looking to self publish in Canada or the U.S, and want high-quality printing, binding, sleeking, book design, etc. we are the passionate self publishing superstars that will get the job done. If you have any questions whatsoever about the self publishing process (for example, if you want to know how much a certain order quantity might cost you, or how long your book design might take), then feel free to ask away!
