Any Good Sites to Print My EBook to Regular Book

7 replies
Hi warriors,

I have a ebook, that has helped a lot of people and I want to print it out as a real book and give it out and various events.

I am mainly looking for OK quality for a cheap price, since I will not be making sales from that book.

Thanks.

    I work in the print industry in the UK, If you are UK based i can recomend a few places.

    How many pages, What size (A4, A5 etc) and how many you need.

    If your not uk based i might be able to suggest possible binding, substrate and press type options from the info above to help make your hunt easyer.

      Depending on how many copies you want to have printed at a time, you may choose to go with POD or with traditional offset printing.

      I suspect you may want to go with POD (Print On Demand).

      My top choice at the moment is CreateSpace.com, which is an Amazon-owned business.

      I've used Lulu.com in the past, and their quality was acceptable.

      For offset printing, go to SelfPublishing.com and check out their quotes. They also have a lot of information to help.

      Why don't you create a short (but useful) report, make that into a booklet you can give away, and, in it, promote your eBook/book? Then, use Lulu or CreateSpace to handle your print book. That way, people can choose whether to buy a digital or traditional version of your book.

      Dan's content is irregularly read by handfuls of people. Join the elite few by reading his blog: dcrBlogs.com, following him on Twitter: dcrTweets.com or reading his fiction: dcrWrites.com but NOT by Clicking Here!

      Dan also writes content for hire, but you can't afford him anyway.

    Amazon's Create Space (I think that's what it's called) and Lulu are two big ones I know of. It may be more than you're looking to spend though. But keep in mind, even if you're not selling it, you do want it to make a good impression on people.

    One piece of advice I've heard is that paying a little to get a cover designed by someone who actually does book covers will make a BIG difference in the end result (instead of just relying on a template or whatnot).

    (I just noticed after posting that several of us must have been working on our posts simultaneously. But great minds think alike I guess LOL).

    I've used Lulu a couple of times and I was impressed with the results. The printing was relatively cheap, although their postage rates were quite high. That might be different for you depending on where you are located.

    I agree with designing a good book cover and not using their pre-designed templates.

  • Yes, CreateSpace and Lulu are both pretty popular.

    I guess most people use either one of these services.
