About I Street Press

The I Street Press is powered by the Espresso Book Machine® (EBM). The EBM is a “book robot” that prints, binds and trims quality paperbacks in minutes. A high speed black-and-white printer duplicates the inside of the book from the title page to the last page while a photo quality printer creates the cover. The EBM then glues the inside to the cover and trims the excess. Once completed a finished perfect-bound book is delivered. Books printed on the EMB are of the same high quality as books printed by any regular publisher.

Currently, Sacramento Public Library is the only place you can find an EBM in Northern California, and is one of only two machines in California. For a list of all locations, visit the Espresso Book Machine website.
