Taking it to the Streets

Inword Publishers offers print-on-demand (POD) and offset printing for any type of book, trim size, or quantity. Through our global distributors, your print book (pBook) and eBook will go out to more than 150 retailers, as well as libraries, wholesalers, brick-and-mortar stores, and much more.

Want to release a pBook and eBook together? Prefer to publish an eBook alone and need worldwide distribution? Do you require larger quantity or different trim size than POD accommodates? Or do you have a 4-color book that requires the best printing available? Whatever your print concerns, you’ll want your book(s) distributed around the world—we deliver.

Customize your pBook or eBook Base Plan with these Printing and Distribution Options:

With print-on-demand (POD) you don’t have to manage inventory, pay for storing inventory, or ever run out of inventory. You simply make your book available to be printed whenever someone orders it. Because there is no physical inventory, your book is made available for sale internationally. You can reach readers in the United Kingdom, Canada, France, Germany, China, Japan, Australia, Brazil, South Korea, Poland, Russia, and other countries in Europe.

Your book will be listed through CreateSpace and Ingram, the two largest POD distribution channels, for one year (renewable annually).

You Receive:

  • Your book available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other online retailers.
  • Management of your sales reports and payments in your online ProManage Console.

If you need more than 750 copies or have a children’s book or coffee-table book, then you’ll likely want to print your book on an offset press.

Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique where an inked image is transferred (or “offset”) from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to paper. The initial set-up is more costly than digital printing. However, when printing large quantities of books, the per-copy price is significantly cheaper than digitally printed matter. Additionally, print-on-demand (POD) does not offer the level of quality for 4-color printing that offset printing delivers. That is why this method of printing is recommended for large print runs, 750 copies or more; for books with trim sizes not offered through digital printers; and for high quality children’s or art books.

Resellers like Amazon and iBooks use their own digital rights management (DRM). So unless you are selling your eBook directly, you don’t need DRM. If you want to sell your eBook on your direct-to-reader sales page and avoid third-party fees, then you might like to consider DRM for your eBook. DRM is the best way to inhibit unauthorized copying and sharing of your eBook.

You Receive:

  • DRM protection added to the eBook file sold through your direct-to-reader sales page for up to 100 unique downloads.
  • With DRM protection, your eBook will be delivered to your customer but cannot be shared with others.

ISBNs are used to identify each book that is published and each edition of the same book. ISBN also identifies the publisher of the book. It is the standard ID number used to identify books by booksellers, libraries, book wholesalers, and distributors. If you plan to sell your book in bookstores, libraries, or through online retailers like Amazon.com, you will need an ISBN.

The barcode printed on the back of the book is the scannable form of the ISBN,  having the information of the ISBN embedded within it.

Although your book is legally copyrighted as soon as it is written, you may want to increase your protection with copyright registration.

If you are using a pen name, a registered copyright gives you the opportunity to officially record the relationship between your pen name and your legal name.

If there is ever a dispute as to the ownership of the content of your book, a registered copyright will give you more leverage in such disputes.
