Online Binding is a family-run business, and opened its doors in 2005. It began with Ray Knopf, who wanted to offer printing in a variety of ways. Several years later, Ray’s three sons decided that they wanted to truly use the printing press to help authors – and Online Binding.com was launched. Ed, Ronnie, and Ralph made it possible for college students to have their thesis documents and dissertations bound in a professional and presentable way.
In 2009, the third generation of the Knopf family stepped in and transformed Online Binding once again – to the company it is today. It is now an indie publishing company capable of helping authors to achieve their dream of seeing their book finished – in print and in an e-book format.
Online Binding operates with more than 140 years of experience between the owners and those who assist with the production and manufacturing of books. This delivers a significant amount of confidence to our customers because they know they can rely on us for a professional final product – and we love to help customers turn their dreams into a reality over and over again.
Many of our customers come to us with a finished novel, memoir, cookbook, or other book and want to know their options for being able to take it to the next level. We are pleased to have an amazing team based in Jacksonville to help authors from all over Florida as well as across the United States.
We have an in-house design team that can help with book layout, formatting, and even cover design. We also have a team that can help with e-book conversions, which allows our customers to have not only a paperback of their book, but also be able to sell the book for consumption on e-readers and other digital devices. This helps authors to fulfill all of their different marketing plans once they have finished all of the hard work of creating a book.
We’re in the business of publishing and we recognize that this is one of the fastest growing industries out there. Authors have more options than ever before and we’re excited to be one of those options. We’re not a vanity press. Instead, we provide an option for indie authors to publish their books and choose from an array of sizes, paper types, and binding options. No one has to be limited in the way they present their book, and this is what we pride ourselves on.
At Online Binding, we are part of the entire process, from design to publication to printing, binding, and can even point our authors in the direction of the best marketing strategies.
Many indie authors don’t know what they want and therefore we sit down and provide consultations. We have worked with fiction and nonfiction authors alike and have more printing options than many of the other presses that indie authors use.
If you have a book that you want printed and even turned into an e-book, look no further. Contact Online Binding today to learn more about who we are and what we have to offer.
