Modern Technology Lets Hardcover Book Printing Be An Option For Future Writers

With the options and technology today the barrier to hardcover book printing is minimal for the beginning author.

As opposed to fifty years ago there are several options besides major publishing houses to printing a manuscript. So with a bit of time or money a draft can be turned into a finished book.

The stereotype that many believe is that an author needs to get the attention of a publishing house that will print their book. Many famous authors such as Stephen King and Benjamin Franklin though have gone down the self publishing route for their materials. Combined with the easy access to computers and the internet the modern writer has different options to publish their works.

For the author of a modern hardcover book or related item there are many options to choose from depending on the money and time they have. Local print shops can for a upfront cost put out low to moderate prints. The tools are available to do a high quality print job from a home office. And for those who have no funds to start off with internet on demand printing with no upfront costs is a choice.

Local printers provide high quality printing for small to moderate publishing needs. They may be the best choice for those who’s sales come from a small geographic area and need a quicker response than a more distant publisher could offer. You will need to pay up front for each book made with 200 items being the starting price.

There are local printers who can take a manuscript and for a upfront cost per unit can print out your works. The price per unit depends on how sophisticated the design is and how many you order at a time with 200 the usual starting amount. An additional advantage is the quick turnover and flexibility when dealing with a local publishing house.

The internet has in the last five years provided the option of on demand printing which allows printing of as many copies as needed from a master document. Some online publishers may even provide a digital as an option instead of a printed copy. The initial setup fees for this system are zero to low but they make their money from taking around thirty percent of the total price of the book for fees.

Any of the above options as well as combinations can be used to print your works depending on the money or time you have available. Depending on the location as well as the money you have for the expenses related to your publication will help you pick the first printing choice. Then as you start earning from sales and make new books you can add or expand any publishing channel.
