Looking Back: PageMaster Now Offering On-Demand Book Printing

Our first on-demand book, circa 2001

October, 2001 – An Edmonton, Alberta publishing company has officially put its mark in book production with the release copies of Beach Holme Publishing’s latest book, North of the Equator by Cyril Dabydeen.

PageMaster Publication Services Inc., created in 1996 by owner Dale Youngman has, until now, provided desktop publishing and film for several Edmonton businesses.

North of the Equator was the first book that PageMaster printed and bound inhouse, a pebble in the pond which led the small Edmonton company to jump in to the pool of short-run book production.

PageMaster started out with the goal of providing production and related services, creating information-rich communication tools for associations and businesses. Upon moving into book production, Youngman said his company is now offering its services to extend beyond, yet still include, desktop publishing.

By creating a finished book to customers within a matter of hours, PageMaster can pride itself on customer service and satisfaction.

Clients are ensured of receiving a professional product equal to what they can expect from a large production company while avoiding the delay which may come, when dealing with a big business.

By supporting and believing in a small business, Beach Holme Publishing gave PageMaster a leg up into novel production.

Encouraged by this, PageMaster Publication Services now offers a range of production options, from high colour novels, and booklets to ringed binders for education resources.

The growth of this Edmonton company now gives publishers a wider range of quality options within a timeline that will satisfy their clients.
