Risks and challenges

Printing can be risky. But those risks can be minimized through planning, attention to detail and working with credible people. My experience as a graphic designer gives me confidence that this book can and will be printed exactly how I envision it. The books come by ship to Portland then by truck to our little mountain town. Winter weather could possibly slow delivery time, but I doubt it!
