Book printing companies

Book printing companies play an important role in book distribution channels and operation, which is where the economical and reliable distribution of a book is critical. This is why yet again book printing companies come into although it is possible to get by without using the services of a book distributor/wholesaler, the choices are very unpalatable. A self-published author could distribute the book him/herself, but that would require having to go to the post office and mail off the copy or copies to whoever wanted to buy them. This then leaves the problem of authors having to raise the invoices each and every time they mail those copies, and just hope they get paid: and hope too that they do not end up with bank charges every time they deposit the payment. Another way around the problem for the self-published author is to sign up for the AAP, the problem here being that Amazon takes up to 65% of the retail price in royalties and will send in one-off orders, which often means that, after taking into account the cost of postage and packing, and their time, the author actually loses money on every book she/he ships to Amazon. The author also has to put up with Amazon's long-winded and draconian payment terms and exclusivity requirements, which means the author is precluded from using other retail outlets. Of course, there are other print-on-demand book publishers who purport to offer distribution, but they frequently fail to point out that their distribution is not only very limited, but they also charge an administration fee, which inevitably means the self-published author's revenues are depleted. All of this is a complicated, inefficient mess that book printing companies alleviate.
The relationship that book printing companies have with our book distributor is unique, as their normal policy is not to deal with authors/publishers who have less than four titles in their inventory. However, due to the fact that we afford our clients the dignity and right to have the ISBN of their book in their own name, as a result they become book publishers in their own right and fall outside our book distributor's normal policy, which potentially proves most problematic when engaging their distribution services. Would you please be aware that the fact that our book distributor has granted book printing companies a concession and has agreed to distribute our clients books, is a privilege granted by them and not a right. Our book distributor is based in book printing companies greatly values their support to its clients.
Having taken account of the foregoing, let's explain the Royalty formula: the retail price of your book, less the book retailer's sales commission of 25%, less our book distributor's commission of 15% of the retail price, less printing costs means your royalty. (In other words, the book retailer who sold the book on your behalf, and our book distributor who made the book available to them, deduct their combined commission of 40% from the retail price of your book.) This is the formula. It is very clear that neither book printing companies nor the author could pack and mail a copy of a book for the amount that our book distributor charges.
