This is a Scout Book

Behind the Scenes at Our HQ

10 Mar This is a Scout Book

Here at Scout Books we think there’s magic in each of the little books we make, and we’re excited to share our brand new video that gives a glimpse of where that spark begins! We worked with our friends, The Getty Brothers, to shoot what happens behinds the scenes at our bright yellow headquarters in Portland, Oregon. 

First and foremost, every Scout Book starts with an idea— yours! Dream it up, design it, and we can help make it happen. Next, our talented team of makers steps in to bring that idea to life. Our Project Managers are the first off the starting line, offering their care and expertise to get your custom Scout Books design ready to manufacture, and ensure that every detail is in place. Once you’ve approved your proof for print, our Press Team leaps into action, printing your Scout Books with vegetable-based ink on 100% recycled papers. Next, it all comes together when our Bindery Team revs up— folding, trimming, collating, and binding your beautiful pages and covers into Scout Books. The finishing touch of the process comes with corner-rounding each book by hand and packing them up for shipment directly to your door.

We hope that you enjoy learning more about all the love that goes into each Scout Book— we can’t wait to make your next big idea into a little book!
