Cost of printing a book 

How much does print-on-demand cost?

The POD business for indies is highly influenced by the length of the book.  Retailers set a minimum price to cover printing costs and distributor fees.

Profit margins differ based on the number of pages and color types you chose. When you sell through a retail channel, only the printing costs and retailer’s margin arise. There is no shipping cost calculated for authors and publishers.

You can also order author copies to send print review copies or fulfill orders for your direct contacts. If you order author copies or you’d like to send print books via direct distribution services, you’ll have to take care of the shipping and taxation costs.
