Following the final sign off of your Publish Your Book module, this module prepares your artwork for print (including preflight checks), manages your print run and includes printing of your book.
Please note: due to the variety of the books we print, this price is a deposit only and any print run will cost more than this figure. Once you have confirmed size of book and approximate page count, we will provide you with a print quote. You will be invoiced for any additional cost upon approval of artwork for print and full payment is due prior to release of artwork files to the printer. We do not issue artwork to printers without the account being cleared in full. If you do not have funds for a print run, we suggest you use CreateSpace to initially launch your title.
Printing Your Book
We will oversee the print run for your books, including any printer queries, and will take delivery of them. We will then list your title as available for bulk-ordering on our website as well as supplying any bookshops that have already requested copies as well as sending out Advance Information Sheets to major booksellers throughout UK & Ireland.
Print runs can start from as little as 12 copies of your book (dependent on format and we would not advise going this low for resale), but the more you buy the lower your unit cost.
You will also need to purchase an ISBN from us, and we will also send 6 copies of your book to the Legal Deposits Libraries of UK and Ireland. We will also keep a copy for our records. The appropriate paperwork will then be sent to Nielsen to register your book as published. If you are supplying your own ISBN, you are responsible for fulfilling these obligations, however we will still require one copy for our records.
Want to order another print run? Simply purchase another of these modules, and let us know which book you require reprinting. Alternatively, contact us by email to discuss your new order as well as any updates that may be required.
Bulk purchasing a title that isn’t yours? Contact us to agree terms and for availability confirmation.
Selling Your Book
We recommend listing your book for sale through Amazon. We can help you to do this, we can also help you with despatch and delivery of your books where requested. Please discuss how this works prior to going to print (you may prefer the print-on-demand option in some circumstances). Your book will be listed under your own Amazon account for easy management of your account, and a notification email can be set up for us to be informed when you make a sale.
Our website listing is for bulk orders only, and details of this will be discussed with you on a per order basis: terms, payment and pricing will all have to be agreed by all parties. Please ensure you keep your contact details up to date with us at all times.
We can also help you to sell your book through your own website and social media. Marketing support from Kissed Off will only run for the first two weeks after publication, though there will be occasional promotion after this. If you need further marketing of your book, please contact us for details on how to extend this.
The Small Print
- The file will not be sent to our supplier’s until all outstanding monies have been paid in full. Where additional charges are applicable above the module cost, you will be notified of these well in advance as well as having a confirmation quote prior to print based on the final specification.
- Approval of artwork is a key stage for both our and your protection. Amends that are spotted after this point are the responsibility of the client along with any associated re-print costs and issue of new ISBN.
- Where you are ordering a re-print, we will provide you with a confirmation of print cost and your artwork will be sent 14 days following your order unless otherwise requested in writing. This is in line with Distance Selling Regulations to allow you a cooling off period. All print costs must be cleared into our account before print order will be placed.
