For some time I have been trying to write a novel.Then I did.Now I want to print it.
The problem is being an extremely DIY guy I want to print it from my home and also because there are no options available.I know the task is daunting.Finding materials and preparing and finishing the whole project is tremendous work,but none the less I want to do it.
Paper: While searching the web for paper I found this link What binding and paper should be used on a self-printed novel? ,and I am here. Now in my country paper standards are in another language,so me not having sufficient knowledge can't convey to dealer the terms 20# 70-80 bright etc. to find the right paper.What I did was took a novel with paper type which I like and showed them and got almost similar papers.
Print: I know the advise about getting it done from local press is the best,but again in my country, that will be extremely expensive.So I will have to make do with a desktop printer.
That's the advise I need.Which printer to choose? I already have a cheap laser printer.I can make a little budget and look for a specialized printer if it's available here upon your suggestion.
Bind: I will do all the 40 copies my self.I will figure it out later.
So for now Advise away.
