Printing Short Runs or POD? Compare on-demand books to our book printing pricing. Find the true cost.
Compare on-demand books to our pricing for printing books on real printing presses. We offer higher-quality, and please compare it to short run printing, or print on-demand (POD). Recently, we remember seeing quotes for a POD book with a low page count. It was slightly higher than printing a better quality book, on press, in Asia.
- POD offered 500 hardcover copies output on a high-end copier, or doing a short run on press. Delivery was not included in the quote.
- We offer book printing on press. SPB can print 2,000 high-quality hardcover books on press in Asia. Also, we include delivery to the door and customs.
Get more for your money; in quality and cost per book.
Printers in the US almost never add shipping and delivery to quotes. Star Print Brokers always tries to quote DDP (Delivered Duty Paid). We include ocean shipping, duty and delivery to door. Also, we include the paying and handling of customs in our quotes. Our wish is to give our authors and publishers all the probable costs. We don’t like surprises, and are sure our clients don’t either!
Before you decide to print 500 books, compare on-demand books to our process color book printing costs. Find the best quality with Star Print Brokers
In this scenario, we can give our client 2,000 books instead of 500, and for less! This is not always the case as cost depends on the book’s page count, specifications, and delivery point.
But, get a quote to compare book printing prices with on-demand books, to see for yourself! The only advantage was a little less time — about two to three weeks — to print 500 in the USA versus 2,000 copies in Asia. How much more profit would you make if you could sell an extra 1,500 copies? Look closely at our pricing and printing books in Asia.
Ocean shipping from Asia takes a little longer, but the trade-off is higher quality books at a lower unit cost
In conclusion, you can get more for your money, not only in quality, but also cost per book. Star Print Brokers provides high-quality and stands behind the books we print in China (Asia). We represent clients, not printing companies.
We have a secret for you. If you use an on-demand service, do you actually get your book into brick-and-mortar bookstores, or just have access to those bookstores? If you have your own ISBN and bar code, you already have access to brick-and-mortar bookstores. You are in the database already.
