The beauty of Print on Demand is that it completely removes the necessity of creating a bulk print run. As the name suggests. if you sell one book, then one book is printed and the order fulfilled. It’s the perfect format for new authors to test titles and experiment with marketing techniques without needing to invest in bulk printing. If you’re starting out and you just require a few copies of your book for family and friends or to start the marketing ball rolling gradually then this is the perfect, no-risk, option.

If you’re a medium-weight author with a couple of titles and you’d like to get a better unit cost, then a short-medium digital run could be exactly what you need. The quality of digital presses is so close to lithographic (traditional method book printing) these days, that the difference is negligible. We can advise you on the best option, based on your timescale and budget.
Experienced self-publishers will often require larger runs to meet demand, and that’s where traditional lithographic printing comes into it’s own. With an overall lower unit cost (cost per book), the litho printed book is ideal for those authors who are looking for a larger quantity of books to fulfill forecast sales figures.
