Cushing-Malloy is a full-service book manufacturer located in Ann Arbor, MI. The Ann Arbor area is known as the "short run book capitol of America" because there are so many book printers in the area. In order to survive and flourish in this competitive environment, a company must provide quality books and great customer service. Cushing-Malloy (also known as C-M Books) has been excelling in this market for over 70 years. While they aren't the largest, they are definitely one of the best book printers in the country.

Cushing-Malloy specializes in offset printing of soft and hard cover books with black text. They also offer digital printing for ultra-short runs, but will be most competitive on print runs between 500-5,000 copies.
