Sheridan

The Sheridan book manufacturing facility in Chelsea, Michigan, was formed in 1999 through the merger of Braun Brumfield and BookCrafters.  The Sheridan Group prints journals, magazines, and catalogs at other facilities, but the Chelsea plant is dedicated to book production. The book plant's predecessors were known for high quality and excellent customer service and Sheridan has upheld that long-standing tradition. Sheridan has continuously added new capabilities and stayed at the leading edge of book printing technology.

Sheridan offers a lot of tools and assistance to the novice publisher, as well as providing excellent service to the established publisher. Sheridan can help publishers, especially new, small publishers, control their printing investment and expand their eCommerce opportunities through their Sheridan Connect, Publisher Connect, and ShelfWise systems. These systems can provide Print-On-Demand capabilities to your eCommerce platform, although they are not fully integrated into all retailers.
