Introducing…Our New Website!

Gorham Printing has a new look! As always, we pride ourselves in the amount of information available on our website, but now we think it’s even better. We’ve been working hard on our site and we hope you’ll find our new features intuitive and helpful.

New Features

We know you’ll love our new Quick Price feature. If you want to print 25 to 2000 copies of a softcover book sized between 4×5” and 8.5xll” portrait or landscape with a 32- to 900-page black & white or color interior and a glossy cover, you can enter your desired quantity, your trim size, and your page count including an exact color break down for a to-the-penny price that is one click away. (I’m serious. Try it. It’s fun. Matte lamination adds about $3 to a 50-book order.)

An overview of our process is easy-to-find and up to date. Instructions and requirements for sending us print-ready PDF files are more prominent under the Prep Your Files tab. We hope you enjoy browsing our book design portfolios and that you’ll call us if you have questions about any of this after you’ve taken a look at what we offer.

We’ve even updated the staff page so you can get an idea of who we are. There are ten of us in the building every day including Kurt Gorham, the owner. We are a small but mighty team and we love working hard for you. Now you can get to know us a little better!
