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.

Commercial printers who do short runs allow the self publisher to save a huge amount of money.
