Print-on-Demand Printers
and POD Publishers

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, author of 1001 Ways to Market Your Books

Their wizard formats your book for you from your manuscript and your book is ready to go in Word and PDF formats. Note: the wizard has one standard format which might not be right for every book. The format did not work well at all for the sample I uploaded, but they offer custom interior designs for $249.00 extra. They also provide standard book cover formats (about 20 choices). While the formatting is free and they will sell your book on their website, if you want bookstore distribution, you have to pay extra. Copyright registration also costs $99.00, but you can do that yourself for a lot less.
