Remember, if you become a self-published author, you pay the full cost of producing your book and are responsible for all marketing, sales, collections and distribution of your book. The down side is you are also going to pay for all your printing and publishing costs. You will also have to have time or staff to ship orders and call on bookstores to sell your title. In most cases this is not as cost effective as it seems.
Many authors find that traditional distributors aren’t as interested in your book because you have no track record of previous books and their sales. TEACH Services offers small short run services in an attractive, professional manner you would be proud of. We also provide all the services found at any traditional publishing houses including fulfillment, sales, promotional, book design, typesetting and much more for each author.
Most authors do not write for profit but because they are exploring their own interests, those of an organization, or business, or family desires. Traditional publishers today want books that appeal to large mass market and usually won’t accept works intended for small markets. Here at TEACH Services, we can produce quantities as little as 50 so economically that self-publishing can be in the reach of all writers.
Unlike many short run printers, only the highest quality printing methods are used when producing your book. On quanitites of 50 to 500 we use Heidelberg digital presses. For press runs of 500 to 5,000 we use sheet feed offset presses and on quantities over 5,000 web presses are the best value.
TEACH Services does single color text or body page printing, with photos or artwork in just about any size you like. We have all the popular bindings available from perfect binding, lay-flat, case or hard back, saddle-stitch, loose-leaf, and more. Covers are usually printed in full color. Please talk to your publishing representative today for complete details.
A cooperative publishing program is available to authors of poems or short stories giving them the ability to be published in an ongoing anthology series. Click here for details.
