We make ordering easy. Simply follow our steps to ensure
your order is complete. If you have printed a cookbook with us in the past, we will gladly assist you with reprints. For a quick review of the ordering process, watch our Step 8 video.
If using typensave®, place your order online. If we are going to typeset your recipes, we require a completed Order
Form (PDF). If you submit press-ready pages, use our Press-Ready Order Form (PDF). Signatures from the chairperson and alternate
(co-chairperson) are required. Also provide any custom material and artwork for the cover,
dividers, and personal pages. Use our Checklist
to Prepare Order (PDF) for assistance.
Don't underestimate sales; order plenty of books. Each recipe contributor purchases an average of 3 cookbooks each. Consider sales
outside your group and community. A smaller reprint later will cost more.
Orders are subject to a 10% overrun or underrun, which is a printing
trade custom. You may receive more or less than you ordered, but will be invoiced only for the number of
books you receive, minus 3% FREE books.
Upon receipt of your order, we will send a confirmation e-mail
with your book number. We will contact you if we have questions.
Orders from APO, FPO, and USA territories are accepted as long as they are submitted via typensave® and paid in full before shipping. Other foreign orders are not accepted.
We offer liberal credit terms to ensure you have time to sell your cookbooks. Most organizations collect enough money to pay for their full order within 37 days.
Recognized non-profit organizations, subject to our approval, are not required to prepay. Half of the total bill is due in 37 days from the invoice date. The balance is due 90 days from the invoice date with no interest or other charges.
Families, individuals, businesses, and others must pay half of the cost at the time the order is submitted. The balance is due prior to shipping.
For tax exemption, Nebraska orders must submit Nebraska Form 13 (PDF) and Florida orders must submit DR-13 or DR-14.
Cookbook Proof FREE
You'll always see a FREE proof to approve before we print your cookbook.
If we typeset your recipes, you'll receive a hardcopy proof. If using typensave®, you'll receive a digital proof. If you submit a press-ready book, you will receive a digital proof of the cover and custom dividers; a hard copy proof is optional (longer production time).
Proofs will be sent to the chairperson unless otherwise
requested on the order form.
Late submissions are recipes or items added to an order before production begins.
They are accepted without any additional charges.
Production begins after orders are reviewed and checked in (about 3–5 days after receipt).
Change orders are changes to your original order
after production begins. They include: changing recipe format,
adding, moving, or deleting content of recipes, personal pages, ads,
photos, cover, dividers, color(s), or any other change from your original
Change orders increase the chance of mistakes, require a
second proof, extend production time, and incur extra
charges. At some stages of production, changes are not possible. See our
Change Order & Corrections Pricing (PDF).
To avoid delays and extra charges, send ALL material with your order form and
make firm decisions before submitting your order.
Cookbook files are kept for 10 years.
Errors may be corrected for no extra charge; changes from the original text and/or original options may be subject to a charge.
Reprints are normally shipped within 20-25 business days or less.
