Services Available for Publishers

 

Content Services

Inventory Free
More and more, both large and small publishers are going “Inventory Free” for their entire catalog. Print On-Demand is a way to realize all the benefits of physical book sales without any up-front investment, returns, or inventory risk.

In-Stock Protection
Our In-Stock Protection Program utilizes the flexibility of Print On-Demand technology to make sure your books are always available to customers. We can fulfill orders via Print On-Demand during periods when books are “out of stock” through traditional inventory sources.

Digital Certification
Upload new content continuously. After receiving digital certification from us you can bypass our pre-press diagnostics and accelerate the release date of your titles.

Large Print Conversion
We’ll convert your standard trade books into high quality, large print versions of the originals.

Mass-Market to Trade Conversion
We can convert your PDF files to standard trade trim specifications so you can offer trade paperback versions of your mass-market titles.

Pre-Press File Conversion Services
All files go through our pre-flight diagnostic process to identify file issues that may affect the print quality of your books. If changes to your files are needed, we’ll either make slight adjustments or provide you with recommendations to help the files meet our required specifications.

  • We can convert most PDF and TIFF files to our print-ready specifications.
  • For large file batches, automated corrections can be made to meet our trim size specifications and spine width requirements.
  • Don’t have electronic files of your content? We offer scanning services for both black and white and color books.

Content Submission
Log into your account to submit new content 24 hours a day. If you prefer, you may also upload your files through FTP.

Shipping Services

Place member-direct orders through your account manager for shipment to any third party destination. We offer flexible shipping options on member-direct orders and can manage drop-shipments to third party destinations.
