Frequently Asked Questions
  What is On Demand Publishing?
    On Demand Publishing (ODP) is the future of book publishing. ODP is also called Print on Demand. With advances in computers and high-speed, digital printers, publishers can print complete books in a matter of minutes based on sales, stock levels, etc. Therefore the print runs are small and stock levels are kept at a manageable amount.
  Isn't that expensive?
    Yes, and no. Producing books this way is a little more expensive than a traditional print run. Traditional print runs are usually in the 10's of thousands of books which means a high up-front cost and the over-head of large stock levels. ODP allows us to print 1, 10, 100 or 1000 books keeping our stock levels manageable.
  So I get a real book?
    Yes. These are real books. The binding may be different for each book: perfect, saddle-stitch or punched for a binder. The binding type depends on the book.
  Hey, this sounds cool!
    Yeah, we think so too. With the small print runs and digital printing, we can even change the contents of a book between print runs with minimal effort. This means no waiting years for 2nd or 3rd editions or for updated 1st editions. ODP also allows us to retain less popular products in print since we do not have to make large print runs.
  So, is there actual books waiting to be shipped?
    Yes. We always have a sufficient supply of books on hand ready to ship. Even if we run out of books, with ODP we can re-supply within days.
