"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

How much does it cost to print a fundraising cookbook?

You have a couple options to get your cookbook printed.  We would love to print your cookbook for you!  The minimum print order is only 25 copies (most other printers require at least 100).  The cost of each cookbook depends on how many pages it has.  Most cookbooks average two recipes per page.

Another option is to have a local printer or even a Kinko's print your cookbook for you.  With your paid membership you can download a full high-resolution PDF file of your cookbook.  Take it to your printer and have whatever amount you like printed.  Or you can just print one copy on your computer and put it in a nice 3-ring binder!

Once you have determined you are ready to publish your cookbook, our automatic publishing system will walk you through each step of the printing process from writing a dedication and thanking the contributors, to selecting the size, binding and cover art to make your cookbook something for all to treasure.
