International paperback sales with print on demand

The beauty of Print on demand is that it completely removes the necessity of creating a bulk print run. As the name suggests. if you sell one book, then one book is printed and the order fulfilled. It’s the perfect solution for new authors to test titles and experiment with marketing techniques without needing to invest in bulk printing. If you’re starting out and you just require a few copies of your book for family and friends or to start the marketing ball rolling gradually then this is the perfect, no-risk, option.

Print on demand or traditional print?

Print on demand gives international sales reach with zero admin. Spiffing Publishing will engage its recommended POD suppliers (KDP, IngramSpark) on your behalf, connecting your book with a fully-fledged international network of printing presses that will respond to sales as they happen. You do not need to be involved in print, distribution, returns or handling transactions. You get paid – into a bank account you specify – directly from the retail outlets that sell the book. There is zero-waste, no warehousing required and since the books are printed as close to the purchase location as possible, shipping times are low; often next-day. POD is typically the best solution for most authors; especially novelists or any author with standard specification books. Hardback POD is also becoming highly accessible; thus increasing an author’s product range.

If your book requires specialist finishes we can create bespoke print runs with a more traditional approach. Non-standard print techniques such as spot-UV, textured or recycled paper, coloured end-papers and fold-out sections are available if your book doesn’t fit the standard specifications of print on demand. You could also consider a special edition of your book to increase your visibility; the more book products you have, the more likely you are to be found. If you want to attend events; signings, book fairs etc. then of course a specialist print run could also be a great solution to make it a really special occasion.
