I am currious about where the books are printed. Where is BHP's office? How do the books get printed? How do you decide how many copies to print?

Like the vast majority of publisher, Big Head Press does not actually own a printing press. We contract that work to existing printers, shopping around to get the best bang for our buck. Sometimes we print in Hong Kong. Sometimes we print in Texas. Our latest was printed in Canada by Lebonfon, which prints comics and graphic novels for several publishers.

BHP is pretty much "headquartered" in cyberspace. I run the creative/promotional side out of my home office. Frank runs the business side out of his home office. The web server is in a secure bunker in an Undisclosed Location.

We decide how many copies of each book to print by rolling dice.

Not always. For Roswell I read tea leaves.  Saw a little goat, and then ate the tea leaves.  The number appeared before my eyes.  The number is magic, and will get angry if I reveal it.
