Book Printing Services
Print Your Work
While authors are not required to use our printers, we do have the highest quality printers in the United States. Price-per-copy depends on trim size, paperweight, hardcover or paperback, dust jackets, page count, and quantity ordered.
*This service can be purchased in addition to the required Cover Design and Interior Formatting services.
Book distribution differs from print distribution or eBook distribution simply because print requires a physical item to be shipped. However, Palmetto Publishing does it all! We publish the book in print and can also help you with your eBook! We have the tools, the knowledge, and the resources to help you get your eBook online fast.
When you work with Palmetto Publishing, we also set our authors up with an IngramSpark for print-on-demand and eBook distribution through Ingram, making it available at all the major retailers. For our authors to receive this additional benefit, they must be using our cover design and interior formatting services.
Why we use IngramSpark
For most Authors, Print on Demand makes more sense. You don’t have to manage orders, deal with book storage, or guess how many books you’ll sell. With IngramSpark and Palmetto Publishing, you get high-quality printing, reliable shipping, and wide distribution. Palmetto Publishing enables a stress-free printing and publishing process for all the self-publishing authors we serve.
As the self-publishing platform of Ingram Content Group, the largest book distributor in the U.S., they have a wide range of printing options, including hardcover and color printing. IngramSpark’s print turnaround and shipping are also quick and reliable.
We also work with IngramSpark because you get global book distribution at over 40,000 retailers. Book distribution includes Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and indie bookstores. Even if your printed book isn’t in the brick-and-mortar store, many major retailers will still stock your book online.
Custom Book Printing Services
We offer custom book printing for clients who want to facilitate a higher-quality print run than Ingram’s competent service. These runs could be for events, direct author sales, or any independent sales outside of traditional mass distribution channels. We understand that many of our authors are new to the publishing business. Therefore, we do our best to offer self-publishing help along the way. We provide different book trim size options, different cover styles, bookbinding types, and other elevated options. If you can think of it, we can do it. Here are a few things to consider:
- Book Sizes and Book Printing Options: Choose the cover, bookbinding style, and custom book trim size that works best for your printed book.
- Custom Book Cover styles: Choose between hardcover and softcover book options. We cover custom hardcover books with a dust jacket, a removable paper cover.
- Custom Book Binding Options: Whether you want a flexible perfect-bound paperback or a sturdy hardcover, we offer custom bookbinding options for the look and feel you want.
- Custom Book Cover Finishes: A professionally designed book cover is crucial. With a great design, you can then finish with a soft matte or polished gloss.
- Interior Book Text Print Type & Image Printing: It’s also essential to make sure the inside of your books looks as good. We offer fully colorized image printing and custom interior book text print.
- Book Interior Text Paper Stock Options: Paper stock will ultimately define your book’s feel and quality, depending on your budget and production time.
