Children’s Book With MCRL Printing Services 
A child is sitting on the couch, reading a book and smiling.
“Read it again, please!” Whether you’re a new or established author, those are the words you most want to hear. After all, you wrote your book to delight children. You want to make them giggle. You want to touch their hearts. You hope that your book will become a well-loved classic. It starts, of course, with writing a compelling story that appeals to children and hopefully, adults too. But don’t underestimate the importance of quality printing. From vivid colors to durable construction to just-right sizing, taking your story from a fabulous idea to a book in the hand of every child is hard and strategic work. That’s why you need top quality children’s book printing services.
Since 2004, MCRL Overseas Group has printed high-quality children’s books, merging the best of overseas printing with the advantages of local service. We have an extensive network of resources in China so that we can offer reasonable and competitive pricing. More importantly, our experienced and professional staff are headquartered in North America to provide hands-on management and superior customer service.

Safe printing for children and the environment.

At MCRL Overseas Group, safety is our top priority. All of our books are printed with soybean ink which is lead-free and phthalate-free. This environmentally safe ink poses no health risks or concerns for tiny hands.

Soy-based ink is not only more environmentally friendly than other ink bases, it also produces more accurate colors. Soy is easier to recycle when compared to oil-based ink. Unlike lead, soy ink is biodegradable and renewable. Soy ink is also more cost-effective, requiring less ink than traditional printing inks for the same quantity of print outs.

MCRL uses overseas labor to produce products for clients but the materials we use are sourced from all over the world. We prefer the use of Eska®board for all of our hardbound books and journals as their cardboard durability is the highest standard in the market. Eska®board is at the forefront of technology and production methods. This superior 100% recycled cardboard is manufactured in a way that eliminates warping due to different climates so it lays flat and stays flat. It is also easy to cut, die cut, crease, score, gouge, mill, punch, drill and emboss/deboss. Ask us to quote Eska®board on your next project.
