A celebration book full of photos is a good example of how books aren’t always about ‘publishing’. You can get creative with words, photos and illustrations for an audience nearer to home. You may want 50 copies of your family genealogy for family members only. In your business you may have a requirement to print training manuals which require regular updates.
If you have a special occasion coming up, your celebration plans may include sending special guests a memento of the important occasion – wedding, anniversary, christening, awards ceremony. Having invested in high quality photography, why not print some celebration photo books?
An American A4 landscape hardback with Premium colour printing is perfect for celebration photo collections of all kinds – weddings, birthdays, anniversaries.
Send us your choice of professional photos on a USB stick or ask your photographer to share a ‘cloud’ photo folder with us. We’ll follow your running order and layout brief to create a unique record of the special event.
You can have landscape photos going edge to edge and the cover is hard-wearing and glossy. 24-page American A4 hardback landscape, 10 copies delivered by courier to one UK address, only £299.
Or 24-page square 216mm x 216mm hardback, 10 copies delivered by courier to one UK address, only £199.
Please note that the service is also available worldwide, with equivalent pricing in local currencies (subject to additional carriage charges depending on location). Call Mark Webb on 01604 832149 to discuss your celebration book project. Or drop us an email – firstname.lastname@example.org – or fill in our quotation form.
Print on demand (POD) enables authors to supply their book to the book trade, which is made up of booksellers, wholesalers, libraries and library suppliers. Print on demand has been designed so that authors can price books competitively for the customer (the reader) and offer the book trade an acceptable discount and a timely delivery service).
POD is lean and just in time manufacturing which works for both author and bookseller. So the author can concentrate on the fun of creating content and invest any budget in book promotion. Authors don’t need to tie up resources in the heavy lifting. POD takes care of the manufacturing and the logistics.
In other words, POD makes and ships a book when an order (demand) is received. Zero demand = 0 book. Demand for 1 book = 1 book, demand for 2 books = 2 books etc. The press prints from a library of PDF artwork, which Into Print prepares in industry-standard typesetting software.
The POD press references the PDF artwork to print the sheets, cut them to size and bind the sheets into a cover board to make a book. The factory line packages the book(s) and sends them out to the purchaser – usually a book seller.
Print on demand widens availability
The print on demand ecosystem goes much further than just printing. It includes electronic ordering from book wholesalers and retailers. When a bookseller gets a customer order, it sends an electronic message to the POD factory. The message contains the unique ISBN associated with the PDF artwork for that book title. The order triggers the printing and binding of that book, its packing and shipping to the bookseller’s address.
you don’t have to commit to buying stock in order to drum up business.
instead we create a package of materials for booksellers to help them convince readers to buy your book, and only after a reader has bought your book, do we print it, on demand.
worldwide exposure and availability.
booksellers everywhere get data about your book.
no need to ship long distances.
instead we print and ship from our nearest factory e.g. Australia for Australia, New Zealand and Australasia, USA for North America, UK for UK and some parts of Europe. Partner factories in Germany, Spain, Italy, Poland, Russia, South Korea, India and China, make delivery even more local.
Print on demand also facilitates other author activities:
organise a launch event and ask Into Print to ship a box of books into the event venue on the day before.
take delivery of a small quantity and send out to reviewers with a signed copy and personal letter.
sell some books to a specialist bookseller and invoice on your agreed terms; Into Print ships the copies directly into the bookseller.
