Printing Options

Glasstree authors can choose to print their work using standard Inkjet or premium Toner technologies. Select the print option best suited for your content and your budget. One of the perks of self-publishing is that you are in control of your book. You decide how it will look, so make the choice that is best for you and your readers.

Grayscale (Inkjet)

Standard grayscale print is the most cost-effective printing option. Books with few graphics or formatted abstracts will look great with this striking black and white, monochrome print.

Standard Color (Inkjet)

Standard color provides a cost-conscious option for content that does not require high page coverage or heavy color. If your work includes colored text, small highlighted areas, or charts and graphs choose this option to make a statement without ruining the budget.

Premium Color (Toner)

Best print quality, available on all color paper products. Makes photo books, portfolios, and high-resolution images look their best. Consider this option when you want your work to speak for you.
