Print-on-Demand, also known as On-Demand Printing, or POD, uses the latest technology in digital printing to produce books, textbooks, manuals, and other printed goods without requiring minimum print orders and without the cost of warehousing.
Palomar Print Design works with Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP), formerly known as CreateSpace, and IngramSpark specifications to ensure your work meets the requirements for upload to those POD services. We will prepare your book files and deliver both the ready-to-print PDFs and the original files. If you need help uploading your files, just let us know.
You'll send us what you've written in some digital format - either a Word document or a plain text file is fine. We don't provide editing or proof-reading services, so what you send us should be ready to go. If you have images, they will need to be at least 300 dpi.
STYLE AND SIZE
We'll call you and talk with you about what you'd like to see in a finished product. Whether you want hard-bound or paperback, and what size you'd like your book to be. We'll send you example images of chapter title and interior pages using various fonts and layouts to help you make the right design choices for your project.
We provide comprehensive book cover design services, but you may already have cover artwork prepared, or a firm cover design idea in mind. In either case, we will prepare the final cover file with the correct dimensions for the size of your book.
We will prepare your book's interior layout and save it as a PDF, ready for high-quality printing. Your cover will be prepared separately and also saved as a PDF. At this point we can give you the files for you to take to a traditional printshop of your choosing, or to upload to a POD service of your choice. If you are unfamiliar with the POD process, we can take care of that for you as well, assisting you in setting up your own account with either KDP or IngramSpark.
We will never leave you wondering what happens next. Our commitment to you is to provide high-quality work and clear and complete service. We are skilled hand-holders, should you need it. Contact Palomar Print Design today to find out how we can help you get published!
