Main Elements in a Book Printing Contract (Sector 2)
Origin:Image Printing  Data: 4/4/2011  Keywords: Book Printing Contract

Some elements in a book printing contract are listed below as second sector.

The author is constrained from making extensive corrections to the proofs and is charged if the corrections exceed a specified percentage (say 15 per cent) of the cost of typesetting. The author must return proofs within a certain period, usually two to three weeks.

The publisher solely controls the publication as production, design, publicity, price, methods and conditions of sale. In practice authors may be consulted on matters such as the cover design. The author is given a number of free or gratis copies (typically six) and may purchase more at a discount.

Payments to the author
On the own editions of publications, the author is normally paid a royalty expressed either as a percentage of an edition recommended published price on all copies sold; or as a percentage of net receipts, for example, the sum of money received by the publisher after discounts have been deducted.

The earnings of author are thus proportional to price (or net receipts) and sales. Royalty rates are quoted for each of own-produced editions: hardback; paperback (generally lower); sales made in the traditional market and in export markets. Export rates are usually lower to take account of the higher discounts involved. Royalty rates on own electronic editions are also given.

A scale of royalties rising by steps of 2 to 2.5 per cent when certain quantities have been sold may be included, especially on home market sales. Royalty rates on the published price can range from 5 to 15 per cent (many authors never surpass the lower base rates). If an author has reached a higher rate on a scale (whether based on the published price or net receipts), and a new edition is produced, the royalty reverts to the base rate. When the book is remaindered, no royalties may be paid. Other provisos where lower royalties apply are stated. If royalties are based on the published price, for example, the rate applied may be reduced or based on net receipts if the publisher sells the book to a large retail chain at a high discount of say 52.5 per cent or above. A lower royalty rate may also apply to small reprints.
