This page features a list of services which provide on-demand production (printing
on demand) of books. Many of these companies can
print, bind, and ship one book at a time, although most are more efficient and cost-effective at doing 10 to 100 copies.
We try to be comprehensive in these listings, so we list anyone.
A listing does not
necessarily mean a
recommendation by us. — John Kremer,
author of 1001 Ways to Market Your Books

"We specialize in putting YOUR books into your customers' hands...one at a
time...on demand. We include ISBN numbers at no extra charge when the customer
wants one, offer cost plus prices that vary according to the annual membership
plan the customer chooses (which they can upgrade at any time) and do as much of
the job as the customer wants...from editing, design and layout, cover art,
printing, shipping and listing. We don't offer price breaks for larger
quantities as we are strictly outfitted for one at a time printing. Our members
can bring us one or a dozen titles to publish and enjoy the same low prices per
each item printed and shipped (perfect bound, coil bound, saddle
stitched...trade publication, manual, CD, PDF, or marketing package) with no
additional setup fees."

stories from his own and others' experiences. He knows his subject, imparting important information in a
fast-paced, very open way. Extremely good stuff here.” — The Book Reader
