Learn Why Many Authors Are Taking an Alternative Route to Publishing

Are you tired of the traditional publishing process? Are you hoping to find a more eco-friendly and cost-friendly method of printing your book? The answer to your publishing woes may just lie in print-on-demand (POD) publishing, a method growing in popularity among many publishers.

As an ethical and selective hybrid publisher, our team at Atmosphere Press has found on-demand printing to be ideal for many of our authors. To learn more about how this style of printing can benefit you, schedule a consultation with our experts.

What Is Print-on-Demand Publishing?

POD publishing is a printing strategy in which a publisher only prints books as they’re sold—that is, on demand. Since the copies are printed as orders come in, this avoids the common problems with printing thousands of books at once, which can be costly and wasteful. Instead, print-on-demand publishers can print a book one at a time.

The Benefits of Print-on-Demand Publishing

One of the most significant benefits of POD publishing is that your book can be made available for purchase online in just a matter of days—unlike traditional publishing, which can take months or even years to get your book on shelves. Plus, if you need to make any changes or updates to your book, you can do so quickly and easily.

Print-on-demand publishing also eliminates the need for large print runs, which can be expensive. Instead, you only pay for the books that are actually sold. This means you don’t have to worry about upfront costs or storing unsold books in your garage.

This also means that print-on-demand publishing is eco-friendly. Because books are only printed when they’re ordered, there’s less waste. No more thousands of books being printed and then thrown away if they don’t sell. Plus, print-on-demand publishers typically use sustainable paper and ink options, so you can feel good about your book’s environmental impact.

Speaking of which, POD publishing eliminates the need for storage space. If you’ve ever self-published a book the traditional way, you know how difficult it can be to store and ship your books. With POD publishing, you don’t have to worry about storage. The books are printed and shipped as they’re ordered, so you don’t have to deal with boxes and boxes of books cluttering up your house.

Broaden Your Book’s Horizons

With POD publishing, your book can be available to readers all over the world. You don’t have to worry about shipping costs or customs fees because the printing and shipping are handled by the POD publisher. Your readers can order your book from anywhere, and it will be printed and shipped to them.

You also gain superior creative control with print-on-demand publishers. When you publish with a traditional publisher, you often have to give up some creative control. With POD publishing, you’re the boss. You can design your own cover, format your book the way you want, and make any changes you want along the way.

So, there you have it. POD publishing offers a plethora of benefits to authors. Say goodbye to the traditional publishing process and hello to the freedom, creativity, and convenience of POD publishing.
