Have Questions?
Does the Library retain any ownership rights?

You retain all rights to your printed work, along with complete control over layout, content and design. You set the book’s price and keep the profits. There are no hidden costs.

How long will it take to print my book(s)?

We print proof copies while the customer waits, if possible. Orders of multiple copies will have at least a 48 hour turn-around time, depending how large the order. Orders of more than 50 books could take up to a week. Printing more than 200 copies may take up to a month.

How much does it cost?

Whether 10 or 700 pages, there is a $4 charge per book and 2.5 cents per page. This pricing is in effect for books sized at 5X6 to 8X10. All pages are counted toward the cost, including blank pages. A page is one side of the printed sheet. Each sheet of paper is two pages.
