“Just wanted to drop you a note to say THANK YOU for helping us create our (Flip & Flow) book the way we wanted to. It has landed us an award for “Best Designed Book for Children”! Thank you for ensuring the quality and craftsmanship really made the book something to treasure. We will be in touch soon regarding the next edition :)”

“The team at MCRL is extremely helpful and did an excellent job bringing the vision of my product to life! They did a thorough job ensuring the details of my project were carried out. I was sent a proof as well to ensure all the details met the expectations and allowed room to make edits as needed. They helped me through each step of the way of the process and I appreciated their transparency and continuous communication of what to expect- all the way to the arrival and shipment of the finished product at my doorstep. Thank you MCRL Group!”

From start to finish, Carol at MCRL provided excellent service, mentorship, and brought my products to the finish line. I am 100% satisfied with MCRL and would recommend them to anyone looking for personalized service, attention to detail and excellent printing. I can’t wait to write my next book and print with them. And thank you to Jamie for adding extra ease to the shipping process. 5 stars!”

“Fantastic experience working with MCRL! My business partner and I were looking for a printer for our children’s book for a while. We have a novelty lift-a-flap and that seemed to trip up most places we talked to, but it wasn’t a problem at all for MCRL. We are thrilled with the final product, the price per unit, and the customer service we received along the way. We will definitely be using them again in the future.”

“I had been looking for a printing company for my book for a while and was referred to this company by my editor. I could not be happier with the final product! The quality of the finished books and book boxes were incredible and extremely professional looking! Jamie and Fabrizio at MCRL were so helpful and knowledgeable in guiding myself through this process to create the perfect book. I can’t recommend them enough to anybody looking to self publish their own book!”

“MCRL is a dedicated team of uber-professionals who dedicate more time, consideration, and care to what even the smallest clients need than one could ever reasonably expect. They walked me through the process start to finish, had endless patience, utter insight, and incredible attention to detail. Not to mention genuinely caring.

Each person appears to care about doing a good job simply out of principle, because they are the kind of people who value doing a good job. There is a lot of kindness there, yet also efficiency – no nonsense, no wasted communications, yet never a moment when you don’t feel you are in good hands. They wanted me to be happy with my product and they wanted me to get a great result.

You can trust their advice, as they have been doing this quite some time. When I needed to know specifics about textures and colors and such, the answers I got were accurate. They also helped me to address considerations I would not have known about on my own.

Not only are the people at MCRL – let’s name Josh, Carol, and Jamie – wonderful, but the product is equally fantastic. I could not believe how much it exceeded what I would have expected even in the best case scenario. There’s really nowhere else to go because I can’t imagine anyone else getting such exquisite results on the given budget. I have not even one tiny complaint or wish for things to have gone differently, because the experience was pretty much ideal.”
