"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

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.

We also offer the ability to not have to pay upfront for your cookbook printing by using our Sales Hub system to presell all of your cookbooks online before placing your print order. That way there is no money upfront and your profits are sent to you within two weeks of completing your fundraiser.

For those who want to simply print their group cookbook, use the pricing and profit calculator below:
