The Fire Kiss

Selection of a printing vendor must be finalized before the interior and cover designs are started because each vendor has its own specifications for final file delivery. 

Offset printing or
print on demand?

You can print hundreds (or even thousands) of books at an offset printing company, which will result in a lower per-book printing price. However, offset printing may not be in your budget, or you may not need many copies of your book at one time.

With print-on-demand (POD) technology, you can print one or more books as needed, and book buyers can also order one book at a time. You will receive royalties on every sale, and you don’t have to ship  orders yourself.


Working with the printing vendor

Whatever printing vendor you select, you will pay them directly for their products and services. If you would like us to handle the interactions on your behalf or help you through the process, we will charge an hourly consulting fee to do so.
