A print shop is a place where you can have books printed.
There are two places you can get books printed: the publishing house in Ankh-Morpork (located in Pseudopolis Yard in the Isle of Gods), and the printery in Bes Pelargic (located on Diamond Place south of Market Street).
The prices for both locations are the same (just in different currencies), and they take the same amount of time. However, the Bes Pelargic printery only prints in Agatean. The Ankh-Morpork Publishing House prints in Morporkian by default, but can also translate books to Ephebian, Djelian, Uberwaldean, or Agatean.
Typing "print book" will show you how much printing a certain number of copies of your book will cost, and how long you'll have to wait.
