Need your books for a signing that’s right around the corner? One of your authors missed the journal deadline? Give us a ring. We will do our best to make up lost time so you can make your date. We’ve been known to bend over backwards to meet a tight timeline.
We’re also focused on the details. With acutely trained eyes, our crew members are always on the lookout for potential problems, so we can flag an issue early in the process before it results in a costly mistake. We check and double-check from cover to cover to ensure a perfect result.
Book manufacturers around the world will tell you that they’re focused on “quality,” but “quality” is a very general word. “Quality” needs an adjective in front of it to truly mean something. A book can be of mediocre quality. It can be “so-so” or “just good enough.” But for our company, “somewhat decent” or “OK” are not ways we describe the books we produce. With more than 60 years in the book manufacturing business, we’ve learned a thing or two about producing an EXCEPTIONAL product. In fact, our committed employees won’t send “mediocre” books out the door. Care to see the pride we take in our work? Just ask us to send samples!
Cushing-Malloy, Inc. (also known as C-M Books) is one of the founding book printers in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Because our region (Washtenaw County) has been home to so many book manufacturers, Ann Arbor is often known as the “Short Run Book Capital of America.”
Since 1948, our team has produced short run books, as well as journals and catalogs for religious publishers, university presses, and independent publishers. We also offer offset, digital and eBooks, plus various sizes and finishing options to make sure your book stands out in the marketplace.
Unlike larger book manufacturers, C-M Books is a small, family-owned company. Our close-knit team knows that kind, caring customer service is hard to come by in today’s fast-paced world. When you work with us, we do everything we can to ensure our relationship with you will last for years to come.
During our decades in business, we’ve consistently heard from our customers that we are thorough, thoughtful, and meticulous. They say our level of customer service is “exceptional,” and they tell us that they appreciate how we listen and make suggestions that help them improve quality, save on costs, and shorten project timelines. Our customers especially appreciate that when they work with us, they talk with just one person from their first phone call to the final delivery of their product.
