I removed the listing for a specific custom publishing company from this entry. This is an entry about custom publishing and custom media -- not a directory of custom media companies. There are probably a hundred or so other firms that could be listed. Rather than do that, the appropriate thing to do is to link to the trade associations that have directories of such firms. One of those directories includes the firm listing removed. There are many ways this entry could be improved, so I encourage others to add to it.
Note to my friends in the custom media world
I will continue to remove links added to this entry that promote one specific custom media company. (I don't link to my firm.) There are links to three directories of such firms. If you know of other such directories and would like to add a link, feel free. However, under the guidelines of Wikipedia, this entry should not be a directory, itself. Please add to the helpfulness of this entry, but if you merely want to spam link to your firm, don't waste your time. If you want to discuss this issue, feel free to join in this discussion.

Here's a suggestion for a list of providers of custom media services
If the people who want to add links to their firms on this entry would like to start an entry of custom media companies, I believe that would be appropriate. Adding such a link to this page is not. This is an entry about what custom media is, not a directory of custom media firms. Perhaps you could base such a list on the entry for the Wikipedia entry: List of advertising agencies. It would be a the 'Wikipedia' thing for someone to aggregate all the U.S. custom media firms listed in both the websites of American Business Media and the Custom Publishing Council. Likewise, listings of custom media firms in other english-speaking countries from their respective associations would be good. I further suggest that such a listing be alphabetic and not be by revenue (as in the advertising agency entry) as there is no independent arbitrator of such information (as with advertising agencies). I assume the logical place for someone to put together such a list is: List of custom media companies.

Want daily coverage of the custom publishing industry? Please check out my news blog: www.CustomPublishingNews.com . I think it would be a useful resource for people interested in the topic. Please review it and if you think it is worthwhile, include it as an external link.

Just checking in to say hi
I agree this isn't an appropriate place for mentions of specific companies.
My specialty is in editorial positioning and content development and production, and I've tried to flesh out this aspect of the article.
I hope you feel my changes enhance, rather than detract from your article, Rexhammock.
This entry needs to be 'wikified'
There are clear guidelines and directions on what a wikipedia entry should contain. I have removed sections of this entry because it did not comply with those guidelines. Most important: Wikipedia is an encyclopedia that should be written from a neutral point of view. Everything that is written as fact needs to be referenced by a verifiable source. Your opinion is not a verifiable source. Your experience is not a verifiable source. Your company's website is not a neutral point of view source. There are lots of good suggestions in the Wikipedia Manual of Style that explain what a Wikipedia entry should be, and not be.
