Next Steps

Once you've got everything figured out for your book printing project, the last hurdle to get over is how many copies you'd like to have made. Like most things that are manufactured or created, the more you purchase, the lower the price becomes. However, you may find that you want to take a new approach to this problem. What is becoming increasingly popular within the book printing is to have them simply produced “on demand". What this means for the beginning author or business is that as sales come in, the book is printed. While this might seem like a complicated way to have your book brought to market, you may find that is makes the most financial sense.
