Color Vision and Independent Comic Books…we grew up together!

Color Vision was founded in 1984, just as the Modern Age of comic books was getting underway. It was an exciting time to be in the printing business, as independent comic book creators and self-publishers began to compete with the large publishing houses and their long-established superheroes.

Though comic books had traditionally been aimed at a younger audience, the influx of independent writers and illustrators ushered in a variety of new genres and themes that appealed to adult readers. Also, where mass marketing had once dominated the industry, the wide diversity of new comics pioneered a trend toward niche marketing.

During the 1990's, independent comic books took another historic leap forward with the debut of Digital printing. Digital printing technology made smaller production runs more affordable. This meant comic books no longer had to be produced in huge quantities to achieve a low unit price. Needless to say, the advent of digital printing was a huge development and helped propel the independent comic book industry toward the immense success it enjoys to this day.

We want to be Your Comic Book Printer

Color Vision has developed a strong reputation for producing high-quality comic books at very affordable prices. So whether you are looking to print a standalone "one-shot" comic book, or multiple issues in a limited or ongoing series, be sure to get a quote from us. By the way, all our comic book projects are printed in the USA.

Unlike typical online printers that only communicate through an email or upload, we are a traditional printing company. That means you can talk to a real live person any time you need assistance or guidance. We also have a fully-staffed graphics department to preflight your artwork files and ensure they are print ready.

In addition to our digital printing presses, we have offset presses for producing medium to long run projects. We can print using Full-Color Process (CMYK), Pantone colors, Black and White, Grayscale, or any combination of these color systems. We also offer a wide selection of paper choices for the pages and cover, as well as a variety of gloss, matte, and soft touch coatings.

Most of the comic books we produce are bound with the saddle-stitch binding method. We also use perfect binding with PUR adhesive for thicker comic books and graphic novels. Our specialty finishing options include embossing, foil stamping, die-cutting, spot UV, and laminates.

We’ll print Any Size or Genre

At Color Vision, custom sizes are never an issue. Your size choices are virtually unlimited. Also, in addition to the traditional portrait orientation, we can produce books in a square or landscape mode.

Because we view comic books as an imaginative blend of art and literature, we place no limits on your creativity. We accept comic book and graphic novel projects within all genres.

If you have any questions or would like to discuss an upcoming project, give us a call at 800-543-6299. Or, use our Quote Request form to send us your specifications and we will be happy to email a quote to you!

Color Vision would like to extend our sincere thanks to Mindy Indy for allowing us to display a sampling of her projects. Mindy is the creator, writer, and illustrator of the AER HEAD comic book series. All three images on this page are used with her permission.

I've been so happy with the quality of work that Color Vision has done on all of my comic book printing. They are incredibly easy to work with and quick to respond. Again, the quality is exceptional and their prices cannot be beat. I cannot recommend them enough.
