About Publishers Design Group, Inc.
Publishers Design Group, Inc. (PDG) specializes in publishing and marketing niche-market book projects. The company was founded in 1995 in Santa Rosa, CA as a production house for independent publishers and small businesses. In 2001, PDG moved its main offices to Roseville, CA, and expanded its core business to include three, full-service publishing divisions. (For a more complete description of each publishing division, click on the appropriate division link at the bottom of this page.)
In 2005, PDG expanded its operations creating Integrated Publishing Solutions, a book packaging and custom publishing program. This program assists non-profit organizations and private business entities in building a new brand, or extending an established brand, and in cross-merchandising other products.
In 2006, Publishers Design Group, Inc., opened an international Printing & Logistics subsidiary for handling manufacturing, shipping, and fulfillment services for independent publishers, authors, and businesses on a contract, brokerage basis.
Media visibility and award citation campaigns
For over 16 years, PDG has produced publishing projects that compete on a national level. We have garnered 26 national book awards for publishing excellence. Each year, thousands of books are entered during the Book Expo America convention where the winners are chosen for the Benjamin Franklin Awards, the Independent Publishers Awards, and ForeWord Magazine's Book of the Year Awards, among other venues. Winning these awards means that the industry itself (librarians, publishers, editors, subject-experts, educators, reviewers, merchandisers, and media professionals) has deemed a book to be "the best" of the year in its category. We then leverage the award, making it a major component in an aggressive publicity campaign. (Click here for a listing of awards and citations.)
