UP is actively seeking co-publication deals with other publishers,
to make "Print-on-Demand" editions of previously published books
widely available to the reading public.
Almost every publisher faces a number of serious financial questions
as a book runs out of stock: are sales strong enough to
justify another printing? If so, will the new books sell quickly,
or languish in a warehouse, incurring additional storage expenses
month after month? Can the publisher afford to tie up a substantial
amount of capital for several months -- or even several years -- before
realizing a profit? And worst of all: what if too many books never
sell at all?
Umlimited Publishing offers unbeatable solutions to these and other
dilemmas commonly faced by midsize and smaller presses.
If you have a book that sold moderately well, but not well enough
to justify another press run, co-publish a POD edition with UP instead,
at a typical set-up cost of $1,000 or less. This can keep your book "in print"
without paying for a press run, and make it widely available to order through
mainstream book industry channels (major wholesale distributors,
leading retail chains, and online booksellers) almost indefinitely,
in quantities large or small.
For books with a documented history of public demand, all or part of
the set-up fees may be waived. Please contact us for details, and
include the ISBN, page count, trim size, binding and a 50-word summary
of the subject matter.
For a 200 page 6x9" trade paperback priced at $14.99, your revenues should
approach $2 per sale. As a result, most co-published books can achieve
profitability after just a few hundred sales... yet continue to generate
revenues year and after year.
The process for most text-based books in standard trim sizes is simple:
just send in three clean copies. We will scan the interior for POD
printing, and prepare a new full-color cover, specifically designed to
behave well on press for "on demand" printing. A few weeks later, the
new edition will be widely available to the reading public.
POD is also ideal for launching new books at a fraction of
the cost of traditional printing, with broad distribution, few (if any)
unsold or returned books, and litte or no cost for warehousing,
inventory taxes, and related administrative expenses.
Please feel free to crunch the numbers on your own, or request a
spreadsheet from us that you can use to make your own projections.
In most cases, the number of sales required to break even is about
the same, whether you print the traditional way, or release a book
through UP. The real difference is the size of the initial investment,
and the level of risk to the publisher -- the eternal tradeoff
between risk and reward.
For books that sell modestly but consistently over time, or new
books whose public appeal is promising but unproven, POD provides
the savvy publisher with an unbeatable way to lower costs and
reduce risks... and UP provides superior POD services.
The math is simple. The choice is yours ...
