Reach More Readers with Print-on-Demand Publishing
Print-on-demand (POD) publishing is the most cost-effective method for self-published authors to print and distribute books with no minimum limit. Print-on-demand books are a game-changer for indie authors or small to medium-sized publishers unable to finance large-scale printing beforehand.
Or, you can use the POD technology to cut book printing costs and optimize workflows by printing books as needed, eliminating hefty upfront costs and the challenge of surplus printed copies.

Once the cover and interior formatting are complete, users can upload these files on PublishDrive for distribution, enabling global availability of print-on-demand paperbacks to readers and libraries.
Cost of Printing a Book on Demand
With POD books, you don’t have to wonder where to print a book. You can use the on-demand book printing to simplify the process and cut costs.
The costs depend on the length of your book.
Retailers have a minimum price to cover the costs of printing your book and the fees for selling it. Your profit margins are affected by how long your book is and its color type. When your book is sold through a retailer, you only need to cover the printing costs and the portion the retailer takes from the sale; there are no additional shipping costs for authors or publishers.
If you want copies of your book for things like sending them out for reviews or fulfilling orders directly from your readers, you can order author copies. But in this case, you'll have to handle the shipping and taxation costs yourself.
