Superior assisted the publisher of Where the Crawdad Sings, a New York Times bestseller for 32 consecutive weeks, with the manufacturing and distribution of their novel. Superior first assisted the publisher in identifying the correct binding style for this project, followed by the manufacturing of the book, its covers and dust jackets. Due to the high demand generated by its bestseller status, the publishers current printer could not keep up with demand due to their limited capacity. Superior then stepped in producing flawless books meeting their tight deadlines, crucial during the busy 4th quarter.
