Short Run Book Printers Support Self Publishers

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, January 31, 2012

A “self-publisher” is an individual who is engaged in the publishing of their own printed material. Recently there has been an increase in authors who want to self publish. This increase in self publishing has meant that there is now a huge demand for short run printing. This means that self publishers need to have access to the kind of print quality that only comes from the equipment of large scale commercial printers.

Rather than using commercial publishing companies, short run book printers are a great option since you are able to order any amount, from 11 to 5000. Commercial printers who do short runs allow the self publisher to save a huge amount of money. This is often the difference between publishing and not publishing for many authors from trade books to manuals, and handbooks to text books.

There are a number of advantages for self publishers who work with a commercial short run book printing company because of the shipping, support services and turnaround time they can offer. Contact Country Press, Inc., we can support the self publisher through the printing and the proofing of their book.

Short Run Book Printers for Faster Turn-Around

Joseph Coupal - Friday, January 27, 2012

Authors and self publishers choose short run book publishing for faster turn-around. If you need advanced copies, or a smaller amount of books to fulfill order obligations, short run book printer are your best option.

Why short run book printers over commercial printers? Commercial printers make their money on the amount of books they print. So they are not interested in printing the smaller quantity of books that you need.

Recently, more authors and trades people are interested in self publishing. If using a commercial printer or publisher means the difference between printing or not printing your book, short run book printers are the solution. When you have a smaller distribution channel  short run book printers are perfect for you.

Want to order less than 1000 books? Contact The Country Press, Inc.
