This page features a list of services which provide on-demand production (printing
on demand) of books. Many of these companies can
print, bind, and ship one book at a time, although most are more efficient and cost-effective at doing 10 to 100 copies.
We try to be comprehensive in these listings, so we list anyone.
A listing does not
necessarily mean a
recommendation by us. — John Kremer,

Blurb.com — Eileen Gittins, CEO. This San Francisco company raised $2 million
in venture capital. It does not charge authors any up-front fees. Instead, it provides free software that allows people to
design their own books. Prices start at $29.95 for books of 1 to 40 pages and rise to $79.95 for books of 301 to 440 pages.
