Exciting news from the Dooley Bear Adventures workshop! All copies of the Dooley Bear Adventures – Belize! book that are sold in Belize are now being printed in Belize! We can now proudly say our book is 100% made with love in Belize!
Our local printing company is BRC Printing Ltd. They are located in Benque Viejo, Belize in the Cayo District.
On our most recent trip to Cayo, we were able stop at BRC for a tour and we were so impressed with what we saw.
We were staying in San Ignacio and it was a gorgeous 15 minute drive to BRC in Benque Viejo.
After 15 minutes we were there!
Sherol met us and gave us a great tour of the facilities.
Here is one of the office areas:
We couldn’t believe the number and size of all of the machines. There were several large printers and machines for cutting and binding.
We turned a corner and all we saw was Dooley Bear! He was everywhere!
And the cover!
They make the book and cover extra large and then cut it to the correct size.
Here is the machine they use to trim the books to the correct size.
Everywhere we looked we saw more Dooley Bear books!
I guess that’s what 2,000 books look like!
Sherol walked us into a dust-free room and showed us the gigantic color printer that the Dooley Bear Adventures – Belize! books were printed on.
Here it is from the top:
The final product!
We are so very happy with the quality of the printing from BRC Printing Ltd. The books look nicer and are a better quality than the books we are having printed in the states for US distribution.
We at Dooley Bear Adventures are so excited and proud to offer this fun children’s book that is 100% made with love in Belize!
The Dooley Bear Adventures – Belize! book is now on sale at several stores in Belize including select Toucan gift stores, Beach Basket at Grand Caribe and down on Harvest Caye so passengers visiting Belize on a Norwegian Cruise Ship have the opportunity to buy it also.(It’s sold in the Landshark shop.)
