Getting my book Printed and CD burned and shipped together

by TransparentLaunch 14 replies
Hi All,

Wonder if anyone could help me with this one?.

I have a book that I was getting printed on lulu . com and sending out to when purchased, I have now created a CD rom video to go with the book but lulu is unable to ship them together.

Does anyone know a reliable website that I can get my book and cd printed on demand and shipped together at a low cost with no mass stock printed up front?.

Thanks and Regards
Paul

      Hi have heard nothing but great things about Kunaki and I plan to be using them myself soon; however, do they deal with books as well? I thought it was just DVD's and CD's, hence Paul's stuff would still have to be shipped seperately.

      Please tell me I am wrong, because if they do deal with books. My life just got a whole lot easier.

    Sadly they only do CD and DVD media, so the book thing is out, but you can get Amazon to do the book, I have not heard about amazon doing CDs and DVDs, They do have a deal with a company that will do that.

    But again two different companies.

    Interesting, concept, Now you could have the two made then shipped by Amazon Fulfillment,

    That is one way to do it, but it would require some upfront costs for stock.

    Just a few thoughts, One thing I have learned about Amazon is that if there is a buck or two to be made providing a service they will do it, I think though in this instance, CD and DVD services, would be something they would not want to do since they work with so many distributers, which is why I believe they sub contract all the Cd stuff now,

    If you do find something be sure to let us know.

      Lulu will do both. They are proud of their book prices though.


      Self Publishing - Lulu.com (no aff)

        • Hi All,

          Thanks for your comments and kind assistance.

          I looked at Kunaki and wow they are cheap.. but do not do book's only Media
          Amazon does not do media without upfront stocks.
          I currently use lulu for my book and although they can do Media cannot ship them together.

          I am not sure what to do?. How does anyone else deal with this what about the big boys with there product launches they always send manuals and CD's do they pre order stock?,

          Anyone have an idea on what I can do with this would be much appreciated, even if I have to ship them seperate whats the best way to do it whilst keeping costs down?.

          Thanks people's

            Best way is to keep a few in stock and ship them together yourself. It's not like you need a warehouse to keep a handful of books and CDs around.

                Hey Paul,

                How did you go with this, did you find a company that can do this for you? Im looking for someone to do the same thing but i'm getting quite frustrated as i can't find anytone that can do both! (for a realistic price)

                • Hi Duff,

                  I did not have much success with any of these and in the end stuck with Lulu, there are a few out there but they want you to order in bulk and ship them to you.

                  You can however order bulk orders with lulu and they are shipped together if you want to have them delivered to you (defeats the object for me) but if you are doing individual orders of a CD and Book together in the shopping cart they are still shipped seperate
                  the shipping is still cheap enough but its a pain as they still arrive seperaltley to clients.

                  Sorry mate, please let me know if you have any joy with this and where.

                      Thanks Kevin,

                      Their service looks great but the website could do with a little work.

    Yeah lulu looks as though it would be a good service but it won't look very professional to customers when they receive two different packages at two different times, not to mention the support issues of "i only got half my order!"

    Kevin - Thanks i'll check this one out!
