Short Run Book Printing Allows Printing on a Limited Budget

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Publishers and authors are still being affected by the economy. As a result, book printing estimates need to be better than ever. How many copies do you need? There is a solution to this constant question. Short Run Book Printing.

Short run book printing is a new, and basically risk free solution to printing the ‘right’ number of books.  Short run book printing allows authors and publishers to print a limited number of books; print only what is needed, from 11-5000.

You still need to consider multiple factors when deciding on the quantity of books to have printed, but with short run books you have much more flexibility. If you print too few, it is easy to print more.

One of the biggest advantages of short run printing, of course, is a smaller book printing cost when you are having fewer books printed. It also allows you the opportunity to gauge the response of the readers before ordering too many books. Therefore, less money is at stake.

Short run printing lets you control your budget and lets you edit the books after printing if you find any missed errors. Additionally, short run printing takes less time because you are printing fewer books. For more information on short run printing, contact The Country Press.

Promote Books With Short Run Book Printing

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Self-publishing is a good route to take when you want to control the printing, distribution and sales. Self publishing is faster, getting your book out to the public quicker, especially when you have a ready-made market, like text books, cookbook or children’s stories.  It's harder and harder these days to find traditional royalty publishers willing to take a chance on a first-time author or a book with unknown sales potential.

There are numerous options available for publishing your book, from local printers to full-service publishers. The Country Press will help you design and print the book.

An important factor to keep in mind in self publishing is how you will distribute and sell it. Most likely you will have to sell the book personally to friends and relatives or through fairs and organization. To do this, short run book printing is helpful because you can order a small amount of books at a time. This helps keep your budget in check and helps with storage.

Short run book printing is also great if you want to publish a few copies of your book to give away to friends and book reviewers, which is strongly encouraged.  Be sure to offer a copy to the local library as well.

How to Market and Sell Your Book

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, November 27, 2012

We all know that self publishing is becoming more and more popular. But still, there are questions about it, not to mention, how to market and sell your book. Once you are able to market and sell your book, you will then see a return on your time and effort and money that you have spent on writing your book.

The biggest challenge people face is really not understanding that they’re going to have to market their own book – even if they have a publisher. Publishers can afford to do very little these days to help an author market.

For many authors, it is more the face-to-face, doing book tours and book festivals, signings and friends. Just going and meeting friends. For these events however, you need books to sign and give away. Short run book printing is the solution. For an author on a tight budget, short run book printing, when you can print anywhere from 1-2000 books, helps you manage your money and your storage space.

Promoting Self Published Books with Short Run Printing

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, October 30, 2012

Self-publishing used to be frowned upon in the publishing world. Distribution was often facilitated by the trunk of the author's car, and word-of-mouth was the only form of publicity. Thanks to ebooks, the internet, and the availability of short run book printing, things are changing. The stigma of self-publishing has diminished, and even previously trade-published authors are giving it a try.

Some very big publishing companies are also getting into the self-publishing game as well. Self-publishing is now big business.

There are numerous places to sell your ebook online-and almost as many platforms. But short run books are another way to get your book out there and in the hands of reviewers and readers. By printing short run books, you can order as many books as you want, with no strain on your budget. Use these books for book signings, book tours and too give away at book fairs and to friends.
