Print on Demand Options for Publishers

7:00 PM

Windmill2The introduction of print on demand technology set off the publishing revolution. Now there are many options for publishers who want to use this technology to print and distribute their books. Evaluating these options can be a challenge, however, since many publishers even now are not clear on what print on demand really is, how it works, and what would be the best option for their books. In this teleseminar we’ll look at the three main providers of print on demand services: Amazon’s CreateSpace and Ingram’s Lightning Source and Spark. We’ll cover:

  • How print on demand works
  • Choosing a print on demand vendor
  • Cost comparisons of the top 3 vendors
  • Which books are good candidates for print on demand, and which aren’t
  • How offset printing can work with print on demand to give you the ultimate flexibility in your publishing
