Advantages to Self Publishing and Short Run Book Printing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 09, 2012

There are many advantages to self-publishing. Here are the top seven.

1. You can publish anything – a memoir, a cookbook, a political rant, a philosophical essay. Many topics have no commercial appeal for a publishing house, which has to make a profit. But once a marginal subject is in print and doing well, a publishing house may pick it up.

2. Speed: A self-published manuscript can be on the market in a matter of weeks, while a traditional publisher may take up to two years to get the book out, if they do at all. For topical subjects, this is just too long, as usually the moment has passed and the book is no longer relevant.

3. More Control. With self-publishing, the author has considerably more control over the planning, editing, and marketing process. Even if using a full-service publisher, the author can work with the professional staff and guide the design process towards their personal preferences.

4. Retention of Rights: In most cases as far as corporate-oriented trade publishing, rights - movie, foreign, games, digital – belong to the publisher rather than the author. With a self-published book services, the author is the publisher and therefore retains all rights to the book.

5. Short Run Books. Self-publishers are advised to print only a small number of books at a time. With short run book printing the overall outlay is minimal, and sale of the first run provides the income to pay for the next. With short run printing, the author can fill orders, and have no inventory.

6. Money. The author keeps the full sales price of a self-published book, instead of a small royalty per copy sold from a traditional publisher. With print-on-demand sales, the author is paid a higher royalty, and the author gets the money much faster than with traditional publishing.

7. The book stays in print for as long as the author wants. With conventional publishing, four months is about the average time a book stays of the shelves before often being pulled to make room for something new. You will never see a self-published book remaindered.

Benefits of Short Run Book Publishing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 02, 2012

For an organization, publishing company or author that needs to have some books printed, consider short run book printing. Short Run Printing can improve the efficiency of ordering books because it allows authors or organizations to order books in smaller quantities.

The ability to print in Short Runs is largely made possible by the use of Digital Printing equipment. Digital Printing does not have the upfront expenses which makes short run printing less expensive because there are only minimal set-up costs associated with each job.

There are many benefits to short run book printing:

Less money invested – with short run books, your order is smaller so you have less money invested. Because you have fewer books, you turn your inventory faster.

Faster turnaround - Shorter runs take less time to print so you get your books faster.  

No leftover books – with short run books you are ordering fewer books, so you have less chance of having books left over. You also have less chance of being stuck with obsolete or out-of-date books (in the case of text books for example) if the content changes more rapidly than anticipated.

Less Risk - You can update content or make changes to the content or design.

Use less space – When you order less books at a time, you use less storage space. This also reduces handling costs too.

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Got the next great American novel in your head? Write it and promote it with the help of short run book printing. This way you can print only what you need, when you need it.

There is a self-publishing revolution going on. Authors are removing the publishing middleman and making surprisingly good money while interacting with their readers online.

But, not everyone is successful. Writing and publishing the book are the easy parts. Writing something that’s good and getting it to the masses? That's where you need help.

Treat your new book like a small business.  You will need to spend at least as much time on promotion and marketing as on writing your books. This is where short run book printing comes in. Get your books to reviewers, friends, family members, anyone who will read it. Head to book signings and visit book fairs.

Pay for an editor. Make sure your book is well-edited. Readers get annoyed by typos and grammatical errors and will give you a bad review if there are too many.

Make sure the cover art  is great. A great book cover will get your book noticed. It's the first thing a reader sees before they even read the blurb. If you cover looks homemade, your book will tank.
